About Toby Haynes

I really enjoyed the way he directed “Reichenbach.” In my opinion he had a style that was just as good as Paul McGuigan’s.
I thought the visuals involving the newspaper headlines were clever as it captured the general theme of the episode, which is about fame. I also loved the use of music such Rossini’s “The Thieving Magpie” being played when Moriarty tries to steal the crown jewels as well as hearing the song “Sinnerman” during the period where he is being arrested and charged. His style also is what helped make the episode so surreal as it was filled with such intensity.
I wouldn’t mind seeing him direct another episode in this series. However, considering that Doctor Who is coming back (which what he is known best for directing), we probably won’t be seeing making another one anytime soon.

Re: About Toby Haynes

I completely agree with you there. He has a very beautiful and distinct style of directing! TRF is a true piece of art as far as I'm concerned.
I also loved how they used "Sinnerman" for the arrest and pretrial scenes. I keep saying Reichenbach has a very distinct rythm that lasts almost all through the episode, it kind of swings
, only coming to an abrupt end when Sherlock is standing on the rooftop about to jump.
