remember when John mentions on his blog that his fortune cookie told him “There is nothing new under the sun. It has all been done before”, aka the Sherlock Holmes stories have been adapted hundreds of times, it’s all be done before, and John’s like “After the night I’d had, I beg to differ” aka h o l y  s h i t

In the commentary for ASiB, Benedict says the following about the scene with the naked Irene Adler:

"I do love that the moment, the only moment that he verbally stumbles- and I sort of did it deliberately, was because I sensed a bit of competition in Watson starting to turn on the charm, and in desperately trying to get in there to impress I went ‘neagnaweknga’”

Which confirms what many of us suspected: Sherlock is frazzled not because brainy is the new sexy, but because Irene and John are flirting. I’ll leave you to your deductions.

I’m always torn when I see posts that are like “I just want Sherlock and John to be back together at Baker Street solving crimes” because, although I understand the sentiment behind them and the longing, I also feel that those posts are describing precisely where the writers want us to be right now. Which is, let me state it clearly, absolutely brilliant of them. With s3, and keeping John and Sherlock apart, they are creating a need we never even knew we had. You can only know how much you loved something when you lost it right ? Well, in s3 we lost, or felt we lost, what we love the most about the show. John and Sherlock. Together. Solving crimes. And not only did they make us see that loss, they also made us crave for it to be righted. For everything to be as it should be again. They literally could have introduced Mary and not make an obstacle out of her. They could have done anything they wanted, have John and Sherlock solving crimes while Mary is barely mentioned. That’s not what they did. They repeatedly showed that Mary was coming between John and Sherlock, and, more than that, they it was making both of them unhappy, and therefore us. This kind of obstacles obviously calls for a resolution and that’s why I find it absolutely ludicrous when people think that mary is going to stay. Mary is here to help John and Sherlock’s relationship goes further, not to separate them forever. And yes, that’s quite brilliant.

He had a unique and driven and asymmetrical personality – he was very high-functioning, he had great empathy levels and was especially caring and had a great affinity with children. He had this unfettered ability to communicate with people and not feel that he was constrained by the usual platitudes, the status quo interaction demanded of a man who was so focused and slightly shy. He was seen as an odd fish, “an odd duck” as his mum called it. He was so capable, so fast-thinking, and so healthy. He was a very physical man – he ran marathons to near-Olympic standard and competed in cross-country events. He would run from his house in Wilmslow to work at Manchester University, a 20 kilometer round trip. I talked to people who had known him during his Manchester days and they all said how extraordinarily kind he was, polite and diffident. He didn’t often make direct eye contact, but when he did, you felt bathed in a very humane, intrigued, witty and rather lovely personality. He was very focused and often deemed to be in his own world, in his own line of thinking, in his own thought pattern and he would do some very eccentric things, but he was very open about them. He was a remarkable human being, a very kind soul, a very benign, slightly gauche, but a very doggedly determined, single-minded human being of extraordinary talent and ability. The tragedy of his life is not only that it ended so early, but that he was persecuted in a time of intolerance for his sexuality — Benedict Cumberbatch on Alan Turing. (x)
