    This latest series of Sherlock has had plots which have become so contrived, with unbelievable 'deus ex machina' endings that I don't really care whether or not they make another series.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Scandal in Belgravia - was the highlight of all the series in my view.

    Same crowd that messed Dr Who up too.

    I really liked this series.

    I don't know why everyone's dissing it - it's still the most engaging show on TV for me

    Because Steven Moffat thinks he is really, really clever, he tries too hard and ends up messing stuff up. Sherlock and Dr who are classic examples of how to take something really good and mess with it too much. Imho. He works best when someone else is in charge, and he is kept on a very short leash, imho.

    Being frank Moffat's involvement in Sherlock put me off right from the get go. I watched a few and they annoyed me, in a similar way as his involvement in Dr Who did. A friend raved about the Scandal episode so I sought it out, watched it, and thought it was excellent, but much of that was down to the way Lara Pulver played Irene Adler.

    I'm just relieved that Redbeard the dog wasn't killed after all - otherwise I'd have been writing in to complain

    They ruined it by bringing in the female character (Watson's wife). I know, demographics blah blah. The show was good before that, but mainly because of the acting and the fact that Conan-Doyle had already done all the hard work of creating the characters and the set up. The writers clearly think they can mess with that and it won't matter. Wrong.
