Sherlock Season 5 Plotline
The finale of Sherlock Holmes Season 4 did not leave many detached verges. In the last season, Sherlock and John resumed their old life on Baker Street. It seemed without any main attackers left to conquer. The story of the whole series rotates around the “consulting detective”, whose name is Sherlock Holmes. He was solving various mysteries in modern London. Sherlock’s flatmate and friend Dr. John Watson assisted him. Dr. John was returned from military service in Afghanistan with the Royal Army Medical Corps. Although Holmes was suspected by Greg Lestrade at first, who was the Detective Inspector in the Metropolitan Police Service. But because of Sherlock’s bold power of observation and exceptional intellect he convinces them of their values.
Then through Watson’s blogs, which were documenting their adventures, Sherlock became a celebrity with the press, who was reporting on his cases and his personal life. After all this, ordinary people, as well as the British government both, ask for his help.
This series illustrates a variety of crimes and perpetrators. Sherlock clashes with Jim Moriarty, who is the recurring character. Also, Molly Hooper, a pathologist at St. Bart’s Hospital occasionally assists Sherlock in his cases.
