Sherlock fans brought out their super-sleuth skills as they turned like the Britain’s most famous detective in a mind game on Twitter.

Thousands of Twitter users attempted to solve a case like Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) via the BBC One Twitter account. Participants were challenged to solve the murder of Daniel Collard. Some clues were given as BBC One followers try to solve the killing of Collard. The aspiring detectives demonstrated their crime-solving skills by replying using the hashtag #SherlockLive.

Show writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss also took part and challenged the deductive ability of the series’ fans. The plot for the mind game was written by Joe Lidster for BBC Wales, The Telegraph noted.

Jo Pearce, the Creative Digital Director at BBC Wales, explained the mind game on social media is an idea that they have been planning for some time now. She said they are just waiting for the right opportunity to try it out.

“Social media means anything is possible. We do know the demand for more Sherlock is sky high. We also know people want to test themselves and compete with him – but he’s the world’s most brilliant mind, so can they come anywhere near?” Pearce said.

What’s Next in Season 4?

Viewers already know that there is a third Holmes sibling, named Euros (Siân Brooke). In the upcoming episode 3, titled The Final Problem, the eccentric Baker’s Street detective and Mycroft (Gatiss) are expected to find out how they would deal with Euros since she is a dangerous woman. It was previously teased that Holmes’ oldest enemy is also coming back this season.

Moffat and Gatiss hinted that season 4 finale will be huge. “It’s like Thunderball. It is the most like a Universal Sherlock Holmes that we’ve ever done … It’s absolutely crazy,” Gatiss told Radio Times. The showrunner was referring to the World War Two-era Holmes films, which starred Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. In the movie, Holmes was seen in some action-packed scenes where he fought Nazis and other threats.

The show’s season 4 finale is set to air on Sunday (Jan. 15) at 9 p.m. in BBC One.
