The paper had "lost the plot", she said.

Sherlock (TV series)

Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, it stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Nine episodes have been produced, the first three of which aired in 2010. Series two aired in 2012, and a third series aired in 2014.

Sartorial style of Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes points the way for British men

The pitch-perfect casting, the smartness of the dialogue, the seamless melding of trad old school Holmes aesthetics and sensibilities with the modern (who knew text would compliment a Conan Doyle creation so effortlessly? Or GPS, for that matter?) But better than all this is the wardrobe of lead actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Holmes was created a fashion icon: chic, theatrical, a devotee of a grand silhouette, a fan of a flamboyant accessory. Cumberbatch's version of Holmes's style is entirely appropriate. (The coat is part of Belstaff's incoming collection; a brand new waiting list for which had accumulated by the time the end credits rolled on episode one.)

Why do we care? Sherlock's 'death': your theories. Greatcoat billowing in the breeze, Sherlock stepped gracefully from the rooftop edge on Sunday night and began his plummet towards earth.

Sherlock's 'death': your theories

John Watson watched in horror – and at home 8 million BBC1 viewers did much the same. What was going on? Had the BBC just sacrificed its much-loved consulting detective? The clue was in the already announced third series. But that didn't stop the collective gasp when Sherlock appeared at his own funeral looking decidedly unburied. So how did he do that? There's some general agreement too that Moriarty might have worn a lifelike Sherlock mask when he kidnapped the children earlier. One popular theory holds that Sherlock didn't jump off the building at all.

Or … Moriarty's body remained on the roof and Sherlock jumped into the rubbish truck, before arranging himself on the pavement with some blood from Molly. Keeping up? • Do you have a better idea? The Sherlock effect: teapot sales surge. Ali Miller's tea set makes a guest appearance in Sherlock.

The Sherlock effect: teapot sales surge

Photograph: BBC It was a key scene in Sunday night's Sherlock. After evading justice for the crime of the century, the master detective's nemesis had popped round to Baker Street for a gloat. As he revealed how he'd got away with it, Sherlock poured him a cup of tea from a most striking teapot – and designer Ali Miller suddenly had a hit on her hands. Miller has been selling the teapot, a fine bone china number with a picture of a map of the UK, through her website for about a year. Miller didn't know her tea set was going to take centre stage in one of the BBC's biggest dramas – in fact she wasn't even watching the show.

There is also a waiting list at Rockett St George, which sells the tea set cups and saucers for £25. Desperate fans can still head for Selfridges or Notonthehighstreet which have some tea set items still available – but the Sherlock-effect is clearly strong. How about you? In praise of … Sherlock Holmes. Steven Moffat: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle writes villains like no other. Jeremy Brett in Granada's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Photograph: ITV / Rex Features Everyone knows he was the arch villain – the Napoleon of crime – dashing about in the fog with an evil laugh and probably a sword stick. But, like most things everyone knows about Sherlock Holmes, it's not quite true. Professor Moriarty, with the quietly sinister manner and reptilian sway of the head, turns up in exactly one story, The Final Problem, although he plays a direct role in The Valley of Fear, and is indirectly mentioned in some others.

Like Irene Adler – of A Scandal in Bohemia fame – and the Hound [of the Baskervilles] itself, he is a one shot deal. True, he does kill off our hero in his one go, but since that was reversed a few years later – oh, Sherlock, we knew you were kidding – it hardly accounts for his fame. So what does? The genius of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Moriarty: "Everything I have to say has already crossed your mind. " Holmes: "Then possibly my answer has crossed yours. " Sherlock finale: your verdict on The Great Game. When Steven Moffat tweeted that this first run of Sherlock peaked with the very last scene, he wasn't just trying to keep watching 'til the end. With snipers, explosives and trigger-fingers this was more devilish than a Spooks cliffhanger - it's as though Moffat and Mark Gatiss were worried that the show wouldn't be recommissioned. And while that seems highly unlikely, a perverse part of me almost doesn't want the show to come back so the ending can be preserved forever.

First though, a little housekeeping. Three stories in and we see the continuity blend together, the series hitting its stride just as it ends. We see Watson's blog beginning to make ripples around London, mirroring his dispatches from the books, and cross-stitching in the series' own mythos. It was also nice to see Lestrade and Co back. And so to this week's episode. It certainly made last week's lurching story The Blind Banker feel like filler.

TV review: Sherlock. 'Ask me what that is," I say to my girlfriend, nodding at my new purchase, a small tree in a pot on the patio. I've been hoping she'd ask me of her own accord, but it's been a few days and she hasn't, almost certainly on purpose – to hurt my feelings. "Go on then, what is it? " she sighs. "Ah ha," I say, whipping out the magnifying glass I just happen to have about my person. I make a play of examining the evidence, the dark green shiny leaves, the smell that comes off when I crush one in my fingers. "Vicky! " So that didn't work. "Meretricious," says Watson. Moriarty, his arch enemy, turns out to be this Graham Nortonesquecharacter. Of course, it's all been shunted forward 120 years or so, so The B-P Plans concern a new missile-defence system, and the pips are not the sort that may one day turn into an orange tree (my dear Watson), but the kind you get on the speaking clock.

My job is to nit-pick, though. So now we enter the Great Hiatus, a terrifying void of Sherlocklessness. TV ratings – 8 August: Sherlock ends with 7.3m viewers.
