Of course in A Study IN Pink when John asks him who Moriarty is - Sherlock says : " I've got no idea " ...

But then he never mentioned that Mycroft was his brother either.
The whole "Jim from IT" thing would just make absolutely no sense if Moriarty was his brother.

I'm almost entirely certain that it's not the case.

Yeah I don't buy it either - but I thought it was an interesting theory.

Of course people online do like to fabricate entire backstories out of one off-the-cuff line.

So they did it on purpose ? :lol

Which means that Cumberbatch was gently lowered to the floor and they pulled the plant away deliberately ?

Did anyone really think it wasn't deliberate and that something like that could be left in as an accident?

It was part of a whole sequence of surreal experiences - the plant was not moving in reality but neither was the room rotating, so I never saw any issue with the plant sliding as a way to heighten the effect of the room rotating.

I didn't think that they would have missed it either when shooting or in editing.

I don't think it's unrealistic that they could have missed something like that, although it is unlikely when Moffat's involved.

My main thought, though, was simply that using a rotating set seemed very excessive. There aren't many so they must be really expensive to hire out, so I would have been surprised if they'd done that rather than lowering him down on wires.

So in the wedding episode - Sherlock has like 7 Apple Macbooks and in His Last Vow he buys a ring just to get into Magnussen's office.

It was established in the first series that he doesn't want to get paid for his crime solving - so where does he get all his money from?

Is he on a Bursary from Mycroft or something ? Government funded ?

Is he just exceptionally wealthy ?

So is Sherlock funded by Mycroft or is his whole family just wealthy ?

Also - do we know in this go around of Sherlock what he did before he was a detective ?

It's pretty implied that his family is wealthy. He's never needed to be paid for anything (so regardless of his Macbooks, how else woud be pay rent, bills, etc?).

Plus we've seen how posh his entire family is. They clearly have money.

That sounds awesome! Voice typing is far from perfect, and you have to wait a while for a response. If they were right there they would hear what you said without it having to be interpreted by your phone, and they could respond right away. Copyright it quick before it catches on!

BBC are looking to change the iPlayer approach later this year so that programmes will be available for 30 days as standard, rather than 7 days. Not sure what that'll mean for its DVD releases - whether they will happen a bit later (as they usually come out very soon after the programme has aired) or whether they'll just have a few weeks' overlap.

That article doesn't confirm anything at all, just reports the same as everywhere else has done - that they haven't scheduled anything, that these things can take a long time because of the commitments of the cast and producers, and that it could end up being two years again. We knew all of that already.

I saw the episode of Sesame Street with Sherlock on it.

It seems he moonlights as an actor called Benedict Cumberbatch so I guess that's how he makes his money. He was very convincing.

This has fast become my favourite TV show, eclipsing even Doctor Who (though not by much). The Reichenbach Fall is some of the most perfect 90 minutes of TV I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.

"A Scandal in Belgravia" did that for me. It ranked for me the same as savoring the finest steak, or sipping the finest scotch I'd ever had. I've seen that one episode about six times. Flawless story telling imo.

Agree with all this. I think I watched it more than 10 times. It's fantastic and that ending never fails to send chills down my spine. Just incredible.

So, looks like the Sherlock special this year is entirely unrelated to the main series, and is set in Victorian London: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-31920229

Shame that we'll have to wait even longer to find out what happens next, but could be a fun thing in itself still!

It'll probably turn out there's no Moriarty ( in series 4 ) and they faked it to keep Sherlock in London.

I hope so. If it turns out Moriarty is alive and is featured in S4 I will be quite pissed off.

That was my interpretation at the time.

I would definitely prefer it if Moriarty is alive though, just because that would create a fantastic dynamic with him and Sherlock both having faked their deaths with nobody having a clue how they did it.
