I quite enjoyed the new episode of Sherlock on Sunday but not sure I like it going all dark. My girlfriend left when the man sat in the chair started getting beaten and I was tempted to turn it off. Drama nowadays seems to consist of men – or women – being tied to chairs and beaten. This has made me stop watching Agents of Shield and Gotham. I don’t mind a bit of action, or even violence but this new fashion for torture is off putting. I only put up with it in Sherlock because the program is so clever in other ways.
