British Broadcasting Corporation’s Sherlock returned after a three-year-long wait. The new year started with Season 4’s first of the three new episodes – The Six Thatchers – which showed female lead Mary Watson, played by Amanda Abbington, killed in a dramatic unexpected fashion. Mary Watson died in the most unexpected way one could imagine – in front of the bullet that was aimed at Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular protagonist. Mary Watson dies begging her husband Dr. John Watson, played by Martin Freeman, to look after their newborn baby. Fans were waiting with bated breath for the return of Sherlock but were disappointed with Season 4 first episode’s turn of events. Fans expressed disappointment over how the whole narrative was a complete mess.
