After two years of waiting, Sherlock fans finally got to see how the great detective faked his own death - sort of.

9.2 million people tuned in to the episode, which offered fans several versions of how Holmes survived a fall from a building.

However David Mather, who runs fan site Sherlockology, told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire he was inundated with mixed responses from fans.

The next episode is due to air on BBC One on Sunday night.
