Here is a simpler explanation for a simple question. The moment Sherlock saw the gun he got to know it was fake, since he's a deduction pro. He then remarks, "you don't take people's lives at gun point", simply because you cannot kill a person with a fake gun. Also, he was curious to know about the cabbie's plan of action(Pills in the Bottles). Had ...

As already stated on a comment in the question, this is very much speculation, since there is no canonic evidence to base give a pinpointed answer. However, with that being said, we are able to use logic and deduction to get to an answer. Which will still be subjective to who's reading it. But it's as close as I think we'll be able to get with this ...

Mycroft's revelations were partially accidental. His government agency had arrested Moriarty in an attempt to interrogate him given the secret he claimed to have that would unlock any door or any computer. He refused to talk to anyone except Mycroft and the only way Mycroft could keep him talking was to reveal things about Sherlock. In these conversations ...

In addition to the other reasons given here, limiting specifically the time available by the Sherlock cast and crew, I'd like to point out that three or four 60 to 90-minute episodes is actually a very common format for a "series" in UK television, and Sherlock is far from the only series to use it. It seems to be particularly popular with detective/mystery ...

When Sherlock first deduces and meets Mary, right before she and John go home after Sherlock revealed himself to be alive, many words show up around her. Among them are time, disillusioned, linguist, secret, and most condemning of all, liar.

Watson is a doctor, and to be a doctor you must be smart. Sherlock needs someone clever to keep up with him. And genius needs an audience, so having someone mildly clever and tolerable is the best companion. Sherlock fulfills John's adrenaline addiction and John grounds Sherlock into reality, more easily guiding him safely through his cases. And this is a ...

It's a lie, for one thing. But the defining line between psychopathy and sociopathy is both of them lack emotions and empathy, but socios recognize they have little to gain by breaking the law and remain mostly morally sound despite not caring, while psychopaths revel in going against societal norms and evoking strong emotions in others like fear and rage, ...

Time was not a factor, but tension and curiosity added pressure, and Sherlock was confident so he picked a pill quickly. He said he was biding his time to John, who immediately called him on his bullshit. Only one pill bottle was bad. Poison doesn't take immediate effect, and he put the pill at least in his mouth at the same time as his victim. It was a ...

How he faked his death is never confirmed. What he told Anderson could very well be a lie, as Anderson points out. But Sherlock had to seem to fall in order to save everyone he cared for. The sniper was fooled too. John had to be fooled for his protection, as did everyone else. By his reaction, obviously Mycroft wasn't originally informed with the plan, ...

Sherlock is canonically in all iterations a consulting detective, which is pretty much a private detective that helps the police. He also helps a lot of people, so he likely gets discounts or free things, like with Mrs. Hudson and Angelo. Much of his money comes from his clients, but he cares very little for money, and when he forgets Mycroft likely slips ...

Firstly, to keep the meeting from prying eyes and ears, mostly Sherlock. But as a government official anything he says could be important to a lot of people. So one reason is to keep secrets. Second is that both of the Holmes brothers have an obvious flair for the dramatic, made obvious by the way Mycroft talks and the way Sherlock acts.

Sherlock takes in everything. He smelled male cologne on Sally, thus deduced she'd stayed overnight with a man. As Anderson approached, he smelled the same on him, thus deducing Anderson and Donovan had been together. "Oo and I believe it just vaporized" was more about the disbelieving and cold atmosphere around Anderson at being found out. Sherlock also ...

Alright. When John was distracted by Irene's nudity, Sherlock gave her his coat, which had his phone in it. She had it on when she escaped. During the time she was missing and Sherlock was drugged, she changed his text tone for her, snuck into Baker Street, and hung his coat on the door, whispering to him that she was returning it. He woke up, she was gone, ...

For one, Sherlock could likely tell the bomb vest would explode. Why wouldn't they, when the same bombs were put on the other victims there wasn't a trigger, there were snipers. A gunshot is nearly sure to set it off. His options were shoot Moriarty, resulting in also his and/or John's death as well. Or, he could shoot and detonate the bomb, killing not ...

She did when she ran from her home wearing Sherlock's coat which had his phone in the pocket. But my question is why didn't Sherlock change it back?
