    Classic British term and as a Brit, I burst out laughing when JLM delivered it.



    This series continues to improve, episode on episode and this is the best of the lot, so far.



    Lots going on here, including proof that someone with a brain the size of a planet can still be stupid enough to get himself kidnapped by walking into an obvious trap situation.



    Also, proof positive that behind every evil banker (pun intended), there is a truly evil bitch controlling the strings.



    The chemistry between Holmes and Watson continues to increase, with each showing building respect for the other. I still wait for the key point that convinces Watson to stay past her contract deadline, with great interest.



    I do miss the bumbling Lestrade character but Gregson is proving an intelligent foil, as proved by him knowing about Holme's re-hab circumstance.



    If the writers can keep up the good work, I'll continue to look forward to each new episode.
