And Martin is slowly morphing into Bob Mortimer.


I'm third with the 'Thank god it wasn't just me' mob.

Not a bad job of it all though, better than Bob's Randall to be honest.

I wasn't that gripped this week. The plot was a little dull, the deductions a bit meh and Holmes & Watson's sparring/chemistry not as entertaining. Did still enjoy it, but I'm hoping they didn't start the series on a high they'll never top.

Didn't Holmes pretty much invent the whole 'sinister orientals' thing? I really was expecting an oblique reference to it, possibly coming from a racist cabbie.


I'm no expert in Holmes, but were there any "nice" foreigners in the Holmes stories?

I think there was quite a distrust of the "Orientals" in London at the turn of the century. I read this week that Fu Manchu was inspired directly by the increasing amount of deaths in opium dens in London.

Occasionally, but they usually ended up dead at the hands of the nasty foreigners!

ACD didn't like foreigners - no.

Aww I hearts Bob but he isn't an actor. I liked their R&H(D). In fact, Mark Gatiss (with Jeremy Dyson) wrote a brilliant episode set in a department store and very Avengers inspired.

Favourite line ever is still:

Finally got round to watching the first two episodes, and thoroughly enjoyed them both. The first was slightly better than the second, I thought.

The 'Mycroft' character looks interesting. I thought that Mark Gatiss was channelling John Steed at first, with the suit, bolly and pretty companion.

It's directly taken from The Musgrave Ritual (as i'm sure some of us recognised). And perhaps a dig at RTD? haha - I hope so.

That wasn't in an episode, it's my favourite line from a story I meant.

I would like it to be in an episode, of course

I see - I thought they may have used it in episode. I'm catching up.

I remembered something else which annoyed me - Moriarty (or the suggestion of him). Surely Sherlock Holmes is much more than his nemesis, plus I think if they're going to do more they've potentially lumbered themselves with it.

*Ahem*

I believe that it's still possible that a competitor needs prompting regardless of their background.

I mean, I've been here for years...

Widnes Rugby League used to have a plyer called Paul Moriarty, and if you go to 2.50 on this youtube clip, you'll see him commit one of the most cowardly and brutal fouls I've ever seen in a game of rugby.


This lead to our club commentator calling him 'the evil Moriarty' every time we played them after that.

I saw my mum and dad tonight. They fly to SF in the morning as my sister-in-law is due to give birth to their first grandchild tomorrow

Mum said she considered ringing my big brother today to say they couldn't go after all as they'd have to miss the last episode of 'Sherlock'

The apple doesn't fall etc.

A good ending to the series, even if the final scene was a real 'For Fuck's sake' moment. A pretty good plot, some wonderful dialogue and character moments, and a satisfying final revelation.

It'll be interesting to see what the show does with Moriarty. The actor's performance was a bit strange, but it's hard to judge based on so little screentime.


I hope that they don't leave us hanging for too long.
