Sherlock 1.03 “The Great Game” – Lowdown


Despairing of the ingenuity of London’s criminals, Sherlock is invited to take on what looks to be a very ordinary case – a young civil servant found on a railway line with his head smashed in. It seems to be open and shut – or so he thinks.

The curtain is about to rise on a terrifying game of cat and mouse as a crazed bomber pits his wits against Sherlock. A 20-year-old murder, a blood-soaked car, a rediscovered Old Master worth millions – it’s just the kind of adventure Sherlock and John relish, but who is behind these deadly puzzles? London is set to become a battle ground as Sherlock confronts the one person capable of beating him.
