- ―"The Reichenbach Fall"
Chief Superintendent refers to the unnamed Chief Superintendent of New Scotland Yard in the Sherlock universe, who is first seen in series two's "The Reichenbach Fall". He is one of the people who fall for Moriarty's scheme to discredit Sherlock Holmes.
After DS Sally Donovan and Anderson start to believe that Sherlock is responsible for the Kidnapping, DI Greg Lestrade visits 221B Baker Street and asks Sherlock to come into the police station for questioning. He declines and the police officers go back to the station to apply for a warrant.
Greg, Sally and Anderson go before the Chief Superintendent explaining that Sherlock might not only be involved in the kidnapping but might have faked all of the cases he's worked on for the police which Anderson comments is somewhere in the 40's. The Chief Superintendent yells at Greg for allowing Sherlock access to sensitive police information, to which Greg says he wasn't the only senior officer to do so, mentioning Gregson. The Chief Superintendent orders them to go and arrest Sherlock.
At 221B Baker Street Sherlock is arrested and on his way to the station when he's joined by Dr. John Watson who has been arrested for hitting the Chief Superintendent for his insulting comments about Sherlock. Sherlock manages to distract the officers at the scene by making their earpieces screech with feedback from the Police radios. This allows him to get a gun and run off. The last we see of the Chief Superintendent is him ordering Greg to find Sherlock.
