I did not fully get it the first time but when I watched it again, it all started making some sense to me. It may be difficult for those who are not devoted fans of this series to fully grasp the craziness of this episode, but once you open your eyes to the genius of the writers' intent on what they were trying to achieve here, I could not keep my eyes off the show and found myself watching it over and over again. If the writers of series simply made this an one-off episode to truly stick to the original storyline, then there would be numerous critical remarks about how the writers settled for the comfort of predictability and made the whole plot so ordinary and boring. Before shooting at the TV screen and calling it 'stupid', one may want to watch it one more time and there will be that "a-ha" moment!

Disappointing, poorly written, nonsensical and messy. I would even go as far as saying The Abominable Bride is unimaginative and succeeded in dulling my interest in the series. It would seem the writers tried to be 'too smart' by over complicating the plot. This is not what a clever story looks like. The twists and turns this story takes sadly does not pay off and leaves viewers feeling bewildered. I found the forced feminist themes towards the end of the episode overbearing, ridiculous and unnecessary. Hardcore fans of the series will likely excuse the episode's plot holes and flaws by arguing 'it's wasn't real, he was in his mind palace', which only reaffirms what I already know: this episode was an enormous waste of time. Strong performances from Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Scott, that I can say. Believe it or not, I am a fan of the series and I hope Sherlock returns to form in his next adventure.
This was purported to be a flashback to the 1890s and a more "true" depiction of Conan Doyle's Holmes. It was a dark and hopeless episode centered on Holmes overdosing on cocaine and hallucinating the entire story. Holmes was at his worst: arrogant, aloof, and depressed. Death, infidelity, murder, and quasi-homosexual obsessions and innuendo between Holmes and Moriarty made for a totally unedifying movie. It starts out dark and ends even more darkly. Never a ray of virtue, hope, or wholesome values.
The writers and producers of this episode seem proud of their work. But unless you are a Goth drug addict who wants to wallow in darkness for 90 minutes, this is not for you, and definitely not for family viewing.
Sherlock Holmes with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, did a good job of interpreting Doyle without dragging the viewer into total darkness. The screen writers, directors, and actors of their many movies provided some sunshine at least at the end of the story.
When "artists" have to resort to continual and amplified displays of gore, lust, sexual innuendo, and drug addiction, it is a sign of a lack of creativity. Modern "Hollywood" has spent years nurturing in its audience a taste for unsavory, crude, and bawdy junk-food entertainment and fills its menu with nothing else it seems.
As you can tell, I am disappointed with the new "normal" in movies.
