    Masterpiece Mystery! [#4409H] Sherlock, Series III: The Empty Hearse Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) is not dead: this much we know. But how did he survive his leap off the roof of St. Bart's Hospital? There are many theories, but none of them matter to John Watson (Martin Freeman), who is less concerned with how his friend survived than with why his friend didn't let him know he was alive. Sherlock returns to London with an assignment (stop an impending terrorist attack on the city) and a plan (restore the old Sherlock-John partnership). When he finds that his brother Mycroft's warning that John has moved on with his life is true, will Sherlock have to accept a new reality and a new partner? duration 1:28:53   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Masterpiece Mystery! [#4410H] Sherlock, Series III: The Sign of Three Who leaves a wedding early? In The Sign of Three, it's the best man, namely Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch).

Too bad that Sherlock is unable to focus his tremendous powers of deduction on the murder that's hatching right under his nose, but then the responsibilities of a best man are more diabolically exhausting than preventing a very clever killing. duration 1:28:30   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
