VERDICT– 0/5

 

PROS –
1) Mrs. Hudson driving Aston Martin.

 

CONS –
1) You can’t fool viewers by showing incoherent story-lines, the plot is full of potholes and claim it be a twisted psychological thriller of some sort.
2) This season reduced the iconic detective to a manipulated genius driven by other geniuses beyond his comprehension long before he hit puberty. There was also a hint given that he was brain-washed.

High Rank Police Officer: Do you have any idea what speed you were going at?
Mrs. Hudson: No, of course not! I was on the phone.
