RIGHT, NOW IT’S safe to chat.

Last night’s episode of BBC’s hit show Sherlock has turned the emotions of telly-watchers everywhere upside down.

The second offering of season three gave us Watson’s stag night and wedding to Mary, with a little bit of murder mystery thrown in for good measure.

The episode was something of a departure from what we’re used to, with a strong focus on the Watson/Holmes bromance and wedding planning, and less time spend on solving crimes.
