Just watched this and all I can say is ...

Oh My F**king God! ... Mark Gatiss you are a GENIUS!

One of my favourite scenes, directly relevant to Steven Moffat saying that you MUST have a great beginning to draw people in, was the opening sequence, with Sherlock arriving at 221B Baker Street, bloodied and carrying a spear.

The first positive sign which he gave me of the direction which his investigation was taking was an extraordinary one. He had gone out before breakfast, and I had sat down to mine, when he strode into the room, his hat upon his head and a huge barbed-headed spear tucked like an umbrella under his arm.

"Good gracious, Holmes!" I cried. "You don't mean to say that you have been walking about London with that thing?"
