Sherlock returned to the TV screen last night with an episode containing the solution as to how he faked his own death at the end of the last series. Well, to be more accurate, the episode contained at least three possible solutions. However, two of them were explanations provided by secondary characters, which I think can be discounted – particularly the one involving a gay romance between Moriarty and Holmes.
No, the one that is most probably true was the one recounted by Holmes himself. Of course, part of the reason why I want that to be the real story was because it was the theory that I came up with when I first saw The Reichenbach Fall a year ago. When Holmes confirmed all the points I had listed I punched the air with a loud shout of Yes!
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole episode, which was a real cracker.
