There is a great poll currently going on the Sherlock Holmes Society of London's website - How did Sherlock survive the fall?

These are the options:

A Time Lord was involved somehow
Molly Hooper arranged it
Mycroft Holmes arranged it
Holmes landed in the rubbish truck
The body was one of Moriarty's henchmen, surgically altered to look like Sherlock
The body was Moriarty
The body was a dummy
Watson hallucinated the entire thing

Cast your votes now!

I voted for what is currently the THIRD most popular option!

And I for one have no intention of contacting the Society to inform them that it is "not as simple as one of those options"!

So what are the few not on the list? I am intrigued!

Lawrence of Cumberbatch flashing his lovely eyes forever... :-))

As to how Sherlock survived the fall, well in conjunction with possibly leaping into the truck there are theories involving relaxant drugs to stop him hurting himself. Or more specifically, since it was signposted earlier in the episode, Rhododendron Ponticum, the plant that helped Sherlock to identify where Moriarty had hidden the kidnapped kids – which was also used by Blackwood in the first Guy Ritchie SH movie to simulate death. I've read multiple plausible theories, but the one thing for sure is that Stephen Moffat will think of something else suitably fiendish to surprise us!

I know and Lawrence of Arabia is one of my pet obsessions! (yes, I know I have many obsessions!).

"but the one thing for sure is that Stephen Moffat will think of something else suitably fiendish to surprise us!" I agree! This is - word for word - what I said to another of my Sherlockian friends who was convinced that she and her friends had "solved" the mystery!
