I enjoyed watching this edit from start to finish. Highly recommendable for every Sherlock fans. What this edit achieved was to highlight the intensity of the rivalry between Sherlock and Moriarty, in a way that is much better than what was presented originally as an episodic structure. Especially considering 2 filler episodes, in a sense, between each 'Moriarty arc' episodes.

What a wonderful edit! Superb execution with stellar edits, both video and audio. No small feat, condensing six episodes into 2h30-ish minutes of cohesive narrative. It works well and I really have no larger points of criticism. The only thing I noticed and wanted, was a slight breather between the pool and the Crown jewel heist. A few seconds of time lapses over London or similar. Other than that, this edit was enjoyable from start to finish.

Highly recommended, but as wraith mentioned in his review, some concentration is required if you want to follow the narrative. It is indeed dense, but by no means irksome.

Great work, ranger613!

Sherlock is one of my top choice shows and I knew there was something there that could be edited, sometimes it can be a little too self-indulgent and the 'resolution' to series one's cliffhanger is a big offender of this. There were also some ridiculous elements added to "The Reichenbach Fall" that seemed to exist just to add twists for the sake of it to further tarnish Holmes' rep and put him in the midst of a plot that seemed a little too beyond his reach Thankfully Rangerkris, with his sharp skills and talent for concise plot-driven narrative, has managed to blend the two Moriarty stories together and sidestep the issues with this, creating a tense psycholgical thriller that reins itself in a bit and keeps the focus on Holmes and Morarity's battle of wits, with Holmes puzzling over problems you can actually beleive in and try to solve along with him. Well the ending is a downer, it's perfect material to get you excited for the fun third series and even if you're not a Sherlock fan, it's ambigious ending will leave you guessing to the end of your days. A great edit by a great editor

Zarius, thank you very much for the kind words. It was a hard edit to put together because of the overlapping storylines, and I definitely agree with you about the producers trying to congest the film. It means a lot to me that you enjoyed this and look forward to your own edit of Sherlock, which was impressive enough from the previews alone that it inspired me to tackle this edit in the first place. I truly appreciate your support and encouragement my friend. -Kris

Seriously solid combination of the two Moriarty centered episodes. Cutting out the filler was smart and cutting certain aspects (like the neighbours who are spies, the cliffhanger in the great game, and Moriarty posing as an actor). Altogether, a solid edit to watch and very well done!

Great job, ranger613! I'm a huge Sherlock fan and enjoyed this edit, as much that I made a sequel and a sequel to that, which hopefully go well with this. (The Return of Sherlock and The Vow of Sherlock)

This was the first fan-edit I watched from ifdb, and certainly convinced me that these can help promote a series. Splitting up a plot into several parts may make sense on consecutive airing to keep the tension, but after the fact it simply seems artificial like an advertisement break. This is esp. the case when the individual episodes where simply fluffed up to be more stand-alone, when the overall storyline doesn't warrant it.

These story arcs need fusing and fan-editing, and "The Fall of Sherlock" is an excellent example how to do it right. Everyone not knowing Sherlock will be instantly hooked and become a fan of the series - not that this would happen in reality of course, as you first have to buy the series to be able to enjoy the fanedit.

As this probably isn't as difficult to do than repairing a completely broken movie, I gave it a "9" for everything but full "10" enjoyment. One deduction as usual though for the lack of an editor audio commentary, I wish these would be more ubiquitous as hearing from a true fan and expert of the source is so insightful and fun.
