“Sherlock” has a knack for the mysterious, so don’t be altogether shocked that they are showcasing that once more in their release of season 4 episode titles. We’re getting two out of the three of them, with the final one remaining a mystery for a little while longer.
Episode 1, “The Six Thatchers” – This may be a tie to the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story “The Six Napoleons,” and we certainly know already that series co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have a knack for adapting some of these tales in a way that better suits modern audiences. They are innovative, and that is a big part of their appeal.
Episode 2, “The Lying Detective” – This may be a reference to “The Dying Detective,” and in turn this may be the episode that features the still-mysterious villain played on the show by Toby Jones. We don’t know a whole lot about this story (or any other, for that matter) for now, but that’s fine by us. “Sherlock” is such an event at this point that it is one of those glorious things where you’re better off going in unspoiled and just enjoying the ride. Plus, they’re so hard to figure out in advance anyway. You’ll end up hurting your brain.
Episode 3, ? – We’ve got nothing here. What we’d assume is that there is a reason for that, such a potential fear that giving away this title is going to tell too much about the story or its origin. Given that we should see these episodes play out in early 2017, you’re not going to have to wait too much longer.
