With the question of how Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock survived his death-dive out of the way (answer: it doesn’t matter), we’re hurtled through a Tube crisis, a wedding and a stand-off with a master blackmailer. Though scant on actual crime, the show remains a televisual switchback, crammed with devious twists and delicious bons mots.
