Although some people thought they spotted a similarity to another TV character.

Wait, this is just a modern reboot of Mitchell & Webb’s Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, right? #sherlock

And a lot of people couldn't help notice that for a long time the focus of the episode was mostly wedding logistics.

The sportswear of the Holmes clan was another topic.

Nobody needed to see Mycroft in Lycra. Surely he just frowns a bit and the fat cells explode like the terrorist ones.

By the end, the episode had won some of the doubters round.

Despite my earlier objections, that ep of #sherlock had an excellent dėnouement but my WORD it took its time getting there.

And it's definitely still fanfic with high production values.

Ok yes; Sherlock pissed to Rihanna. It is fanfiction. In fact I think I might have WRITTEN this fanfiction.

I think it's really kind of the BBC to basically film loads of the cracky fanfiction that goes on in my brain & call it Sherlock S3.

But lots of people are concerned that everything's been much too lighthearted and that therefore the Hammer of Tears is about to come crashing down.

If you’re convinced the next episode will be soul destroyingly depressing because the last two have been so fun clap your hands. #Sherlock

But we'll leave the final word to a friend of Mr. Cumberbatch, who has IMPORTANT INFORMATION to impart.

And final word before nighttime coma - drunk Sherlock terrifyingly, hysterically similar to a drunk Cumberbatch :)
