People had one big problem with last night's Sherlock special

Sherlock has been accused of ‘mansplaining’.

LAST NIGHT, SHERLOCK finally graced our screens again in a Christmas time-bending special, The Abominal Bride. Warning, HERE BE SPOILERS.

The plot was largely based around a Victorian murder mystery, which saw a bride, Mrs Ricoletti, kill her husband after seemingly shooting herself in the head. How? Was she a ghost?

Well, no, it was all down to a group of feminists back during the suffragette movement. Mrs Ricoletti had faked her self-inflicted gun wound, killed her husband, then killed herself for real as she didn’t have long to live.

The only problem, was that when Sherlock discovered this, he explained the movement to a room full of suffragettes dressed in odd cult-like hoods.
