Campy, over-the-top, and fun. Could have done without that random, pointless spasm of casual racism there near the end, though. I'm beginning to wonder if I should just expect that from anything Gatiss is involved in? Wtf.

(Incidentally, this whole thing becomes even funnier if you imagine it was written by Mycroft. WHAT, IT MAKES SENSE. Totally going into my Sherlock head-canon.)
