How did he survive jumping of that building? How did he get all that blood back inside him? How did he survive being dead?! shock

Yes, because she's in the original Conan Doyle stories - or at least one, I'm afraid I haven't checked - where she is described, in relation to or by Sherlock, as 'the only woman'.

You need to read "A Scandal In Bohemia" to understand why Irene is significant to Sherlock.

She is known as "The Woman" and is the only woman to have outsmarted Sherlock. In my opinion, her role is inflated in adaptations as a love interest and her marital status is ignored from the original. The way I interpret it from the book, Sherlock has a respectful admiration for her for her cleverness rather than a crush on her.

Yes I agree-and thanks for reminding me of the title.

I am so excited about this - counting the days!

I found my DS1's Christmas present for me yesterday and the wonderful boy has bought me series 1 and 2 on DVD smile

So I plan on watching the last episode again before January 1st ti see if I can figure it out.

Thanks re Irene Adler. That's how she is portrayed in 'elementary' a highly intelligent love interest.

Lois. Your boy is definitely a hero!

loisismyhero Mon 23-Dec-13 22:05:29

He is a hero sneeze - I'm delighted! We watch it together so its kind of our 'thing'.

I am not too bothered about how Sherlock survived the fall. I just want Season 3 to include an entirely gratuitous scene of him wearing Speedos. smile

I like your thinking satsumagirl smile

Me too blush

I watched the last episode again the other day, slowed it right down but still no clearer.

But again it made me cry when John is crying out " oh Jesus no" ......the utter devastation in his voice gets me every time... Sob fest

Don't you lot start, I have DD1(15) obsessing every time the trailer comes on.

The worst thing is, I've forgotten all my highly ingenious theories since last year, or whenever the final episode screened...

It was January 2012 Clunch shock

Just watched the mini episide. Who's the guy with the beard Lestrade is talking to in the pub?

It was Anderson, the detective that was always clashing with Sherlock.

LeBearPolar Fri 27-Dec-13 22:41:40

Do you think they'll explain why Anderson is now out of a job and all Sherlock-obsessed? He couldn't stand him!

Sammy3 Sat 28-Dec-13 17:17:04

I can't wait for the latest series. Thanks for the heads up on the mini episode. Will watch that now

insomniarules Sun 29-Dec-13 06:11:28

JUst watched it, can't wait to see the episode. It didn;t look like John was married as I could;t see a wedding ring and I'm worried about Mrs Thingy that was Sherlock's landlady- has she kept his rooms for him? John has clearly moved out.

Sneezecakesmum Sun 29-Dec-13 09:22:23

The mini episode was brilliant. Reminded me why Sherlock is so funny and quirky. Not to mention of course B.S. grin

I think the wedding takes place during this series as there have been pictures of both Warson and Sherlock in morning dress circulating.

I've just re watched season one and two in preparation.

As I was watching I had this mad theory. What if Moriarty wasnt Moriarty. Sherlock was accused of hiring an actor to play Moriarty, what if this was true only Sherlock didn't hire him. The real Moriarty did.

Which would mean the Real Moriarty is still out there.
