comment How did Sherlock survive the fall?
@NiceOrc: Barts hospital has no A&E (sources: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Bartholomew's_Hospital / bartsandthelondon.nhs.uk/for-patients-and-visitors/… ), but it's not only labs, and not implausible there was an ambulance crew nearby.

Another Time, Another Place (1958) has a bomb disposal scene. But it's a black and white film with no mention of the colours, and the sapper just cuts some insulation then four wires separately.

comment The first human robot?
L'Ève future (1886) may feature an android, but it's a book and not a film. Metropolis (1920) may be the first film android.

@saurabhj: I took the photo :) We only popped in to admire the old analogue projector on display in the lobby when the projectionist beckoned to follow him up a narrow spiral staircase and showed us the new digital projector!
