‘Sherlock’ Season 4 Episode 3 Title: ‘Sherrinford’ Related Title Revealed

Fans have been waiting eagerly for Sherlock Holmes and John Watson to return to the small screen. While the show’s stars have hinted the upcoming series 4 to be the “darkest” of the entire series, we can wait and see what befalls Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock in the next season.

The titles of the first two episodes of series 4 have been released on the official Facebook page of “Sherlock.”

Episode 1 of the series 4 has been titled “The Six Thatchers,” and the title of the second episode is “The Lying Detective.” The title of the third episode of “Sherlock” has not been revealed yet. The first episode title corresponds with the “Thatcher” hint dropped at this year’s SDCC, which had fans guessing whether it has something to do with the former UK prime ministers, brand of bottle cider, or rural roofers.

According to a report by Den of Geek, the premiere episode title has the closest link to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Adventure Of The Six Napoleons.” The story revolves around a criminal desperately trying to get hold of a black pearl by destroying bust sculptures of the French military and political leader.

The title of the premiere episode also appeared on Watson’s official blog, which has been created by the BBC for publicity. “The Lying Detective” title linked to “The Dying Detective,” in which the legendary detective pretended to be dying of a rare disease in order to entrap a murderer, Parent Herald reported.

While the titles of the first two episodes tallies with showrunner Steven Moffat’s “Thatcher” and “Smith” hints, the final clue dropped was “Sherrinford,” which was among the first names Doyle considered for the genius detective, before deciding on Sherlock Holmes. Sherrinford was later decided for the detective’s elder brother, who has been already mentioned in the third episode of Season 3 by Mycroft.
