There are some fascinating books here. Johnlock writers take note of The Children’s Encyclopedia by Arthur Mee (child!Sherlock- it’s canon!) There are several drug books, one on suicide prevention, Jane Austen & Thomas Hardy novels (!). There’s a whole fic to be written about Sherlock & The Courage to Be.

Mofatiss you clever hound! Trillsabells (x) is absolutely right. It’s not visible in other episodes (which is why I wasn’t sure about it in Part II), but in The Blind Banker, Sherlock definitely has a copy of a fictional scientific study by Lavinia Smith, the fictional aunty of the fictional Sarah Jane Smith, the mistress of K-9 and the steadfast companion of the very real Doctor Who.
Well damn, thank you
A lot of people attribute “I Can’t Decide” to the relationship between Moriarty and Sherlock, and the Master actually sings/dances to it in DW so… yeah.
EDIT: Fixed Moriarty’s arm because it was looking a little too short.
Watching “Last of the Time Lords” and happened to pause on this frame.
And then I was like
we are the bbc and we have one good location and dammit we’re going to USE IT
Sherlock…! I know I said I wanted rid of that head in the fridge, but…
He finally made an effort at tidying the flat, John, give him a break!
Did y’all know that there is an advertisement for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows before the dvd version of the BBC’s Sherlock season 2?
Brothers. With very different and interesting relationships.
