Firstly, it was the title of the original short story written by Arthur Conan Doyle. As you may or may not know, contrary to what most modern adaptions of Sherlock Holmes show, Moriarty only ever appeared in a single Sherlock Holmes story, called "The Final Problem". Arthur Conan Doyle wanted to kill off his detective with this story (more info can be found ...
Vatican Cameos is a codeword used between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. It originated in WW2 when a non-military figure would enter a military-base armed. Vatican Cameos would be shouted and everyone would duck. Having been in the military, Dr. Watson understands Sherlock's meaning and does indeed duck.
Here's my take on this. Sherlock goes to the crime scene smells the male deodorant smell Donovan's wearing (throughout the series it has been shown that he has a good nose for identifying perfumes and deodorants) and also observes her knees. She proceeds to annoy him by calling him a freak as well, but he doesn't have enough data yet to say anything to her ...
Mycroft says," Bond Air is "Go"."
I watched the shows on the PBS broadcast. Each Masterpiece episode was allotted 2 hours - 90 minutes of that episode of Sherlock, followed by a 30 minute "Behind the scenes" type show about the episode that just aired. So to your questions: No, the episodes were not edited, and Yes, PBS aired each full-length episode.
I just finished watching all three episodes on the www.pbs.org web site. All three episodes were approximately 90 minutes each.
The answer is in season three: Sorry for the spoiler, but watch the show, right? The question and one answer were both posted by people who admitted they hadn't watched season three. Careful what you ask as the guidelines warn that these sites are spoiler-prone. EDIT : I'm not claiming my answer is 100% true (Moffat is a clever son-of-a-gun), but ...
The onscreen text interacting with the environment is a stylistic choice and happens more often than you may think. Sometimes the text disappears when walked across or in the case of Mary's "Liar" swirls around the two. It can also conform to the shape (like a face) it is mentally projected onto. Once, it was even a timer. It adds depth and weight to ...
In light of Meat Trademark's answer the following discussion about Moriarty's motivations might be moot, but I'll still stand by this answer as someone who has only seen the first two seasons yet and tries to give a valid explanation in light of those, disregarding any future revelations. The main point is indeed his insanity. First of all, insanity can ...
The attempted murders in The Sign Of Three have some similarities with the real-life assassination of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, who was stabbed with a very thin blade. Because of the sharpness and thinness of the file the wound was very narrow and, due to pressure from Elisabeth's extremely tight corseting, the hemorrhage of blood into the ...
Actually assailant didn't hide the blade inside the belt. He stabbed the victim with the sharp knife and because of the tightness in muscle victim didn't realize the wound until it began to bleed. If you watch closely you can notice that Bainbridge's face was pale before going to the shower. So we can assume that internal bleeding had started. As he ...
Yes, it is ridiculous. Also, I don't think that the blade was hidden on the inside of the belt but that the murderer stabbed through the belt with the "very sharp knife" I also agree with you that the murder victim would not have turned the shower on and then dis-robed. I'm also not sure that if this murder technique had worked that he would have died so ...
my theories: a) he has contact lenses that are electronic somehow. b) he is a robot - the words loose bend bc the glasses caused the bend. contact lenses would probably do the same so the only thing left is he is a robot and the words are straight because his eyes are not real. The "dead" in his eyes is bc he is not human, or maybe only partially so.
According to this article from the Wall Street Journal called From Talkies to Texties, Sherlock is actually credited with this: The texting seen in "Disconnect" and other coming films adheres loosely to a convention credited to the BBC's "Sherlock," featuring a wired Sherlock Holmes in modern-day London, and more recently, Netflix's hit series "House of ...
