After almost two years of baited anticipation, the hat detective and his doctor friend is back, this time in what apparently is a time twisting episode, as the plot unravels itself in the nineteenth century. Sherlock fans, do not be disheartened. The times may have changed, horse carts may have replaced motor cars and certain socio-political situations might be from the past, but the super confident-arrogant nature of Mr. Holmes and the helpful, concerned and rebuking nature of the good old Watson remain intact in this "special" episode. Though this is an off-episode, I would advise you to watch the first three seasons before you watch this (if you have not watched already).

So, what is the abominable bride all about? To be short and not to let the spoilers away, this is the tale of Emilia Ricoletti, who has risen from her grave after committing suicide in public. And she does not sit quiet after her comeback. Instead, what ensues is a murder spree. Obviously, Sherlock gets involved. There are certain paranormal elements in the way the story is presented, and some scenes may give you a horrifying chill.

Is the abominable bride all about one dead woman walking? No. I am not gonna spoil anything for anyone, but you would be in for some surprises down the line. The first one being Mycroft Holmes himself. Nothing more about the story. Better watch and enjoy.

What I love about Sherlock is the superlative direction and the fascinating dialogues. And, there is no death of neither in this. Performances, as usual, are top class. While the abominable bride gives you some answers, it opens a set of questions. 

The wait for season 4 begins!
