Synopsis from Wiki:

It is John and Mary's wedding day and Sherlock is daunted by the task of delivering a Best Man's speech. As part of the speech, he recounts cases they have worked on including a soldier being stalked and somehow stabbed in a locked shower, a ghost dating women he dubs "The Mayfly Man", the last being part of John's disastrous stag night, among others. Before his speech ends, he realises that a murderer is present among the guests intent on killing a fellow guest. Sherlock saves the targeted guest, and then informs John and Mary of the meaning of the sign of three; namely that Mary is pregnant.

A wonderfully entertaining episode - Sherlock's "best man" speech was hilarious!

Also very interesting to see how the different cases mentioned all joined together in a surprise resolution.

Altogether, a very cleverly written, creative, and hugely engaging episode.
