So, to mark this sad occasion, we are asking the big one – just what is the best episode of Sherlock? In case you’ve forgotten, you can read our primers of each episode below before voting for your favourite in the poll at the bottom of the post. Happy voting!

Directed by Toby Haynes

BBC Synopsis: Two years after the devastating events of The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon.

But with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for!’

If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it, though, he is in for a very big surprise…

Written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss

Directed by Douglas McKinnon

BBC Synopsis: What if the world’s most famous consulting detective and his best friend lived in a Baker Street of steam trains, hansom cabs, top hats and frock-coats? Welcome to ‘Sherlock’ in 1895!

Some things, though, remain reassuringly the same. Friendship, adventure and especially, MURDER…

Why is Thomas Ricoletti a little surprised to see his wife dressed in her old wedding gown?  Because, just a few hours before, she took her own life…

Mrs Ricoletti’s ghost now appears to be prowling the streets with an unslakeable thirst for revenge. From fog-shrouded Limehouse to the bowels of a ruined church, Holmes, Watson and their friends must use all their cunning to combat an enemy seemingly from beyond the grave and the final, shocking truth about…the Abominable Bride!
