Quote –
Dr. Willis: I have You in my eye, sir. And I shall KEEP You in my eye until You learn to behave and do as You’re told.

Verdict – 0/5

 

Pros –

1) Mrs. Hudson driving Aston Martin.

 

Cons –

1) You can’t fool viewers by showing incoherent story-lines, plot 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.
