Did You Know?

Re Irene's orgasmic text alert: Moffat said "Texting just isn't sexy, so I had to add something." The first sound they used sounded 'like someone had just been gut-punched." So they got Lara on the phone and made her do lots of longer sexier sounds.See more »
Revealing mistakes: In the first paper - with the headline "Hat-man and Robin" - there are two paragraphs of text, and then parts of that text is repeated to fill in the page. Also, on one of the later editions we see, words from that first newspaper is repeated almost verbatim.See more »

[during the stand-off over the bomb, Moriarty's mobile rings]
Moriarty:[embarrassed] Do you mind if I get that?
Sherlock Holmes:Oh, no, please. You've got the rest of your life.
Moriarty:[answers phone] Hello?
Moriarty:Yes, of course it is. What do you want?
[He mouths, "sorry." to Sherlock, who mouths back, "Oh, it's fine."]
Moriarty:[listens, then shouts] Say that again!

Just may rival the work of the late and brilliant "Jeremy Brett"...., 14 July 2013
Author: goglo614 from United States

I have, since a child, been an enormous fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His Sherlock Holmes character, along with the myriad of players within those enchanting stories, where endlessly entertaining and informative. Being, myself, a creature predicated on logical deduction, you can certainly understand my gravitational affinity for these wonderful tales. I have viewed most of the major theatrical portrayals of the famous Detective. Up till now the best on screen interpretation of Mr.Holmes, to me, was that of the brilliant Jeremy Brett..... he simply was Sherlock Holmes to me. But now with Mr. Cumberbatch's apt portrayal, all SH fans can rally around this new and innovative spin on the epic tales we've all come to adore.This first episode of season 2 is why i still have hope for specific television programming. To that,i say cheers to the BBC for giving us this gem of a show, also to all involved... well done!
