The BBC One series SHERLOCK returned on New Year's Day and it didn't disappoint. It's not often you get such a high standard of literal puzzles crammed into one episode of a detective drama. You were left gasping for breath at the end and needed to re-watch certain parts as they went by in a blizzard of conundrums.

The two leading men are excellent, as are all the supporting cast.

Another strength of the series is the way it brings the stories from Arthur Conan Doyle into to-day's world.

Ingenious. In every sense of the world.
