Sherlock is a great show with very fun characters. Like him or hate him Holmes has a great mind yet has very little social grace. He tends to be rude and snooty making him hated by most of the law enforcement he is helping. But even with that they cannot turn down the help of this genius has to offer. John is excited by the adventure almost as much as Holmes making there friendship strong. Yet he is ever annoyed by Holmes' tart manner making for a good laugh throughout the program. Read more

John Garvie questions whether a foreign national should have access to the Prime Minister, and Magnussen mentally dismisses him as unimportant.

3x1: The Empty Hearse recap: After Moriarty kills himself, Sherlock stands on the edge of the building and watches John.

Meanwhile, two men haul away Moriarty's corpse, and then put on a Sherlock mask and eye-coloring contact lenses. A bicyclist knocks over John while the bungee cord attached to Sherlock stops him from hitting the sidewalk and swings him into the window where Molly is waiting. He then kisses Molly and walks away, while the two men haul Moriarty's disguised corpse out and put it on the sidewalk where Sherlock would have landed. As John staggers to his feet and catches a glimpse of the body, Derrick Brown hypnotizes him into going asleep briefly and then resets his watch so he doesn't notice the missing time. He confirms that "Sherlock" is dead before the EMTs haul the corpse away... read more.
