AIBU to prefer Moriarty over Sherlock??

A little late to the Sherlock party - just finished series 2.

Ok, I kinda get the Benedict Cumberbatch thing (I've seen the Molly kiss on youtube), but for me.........it would have to be Moriarty.

I think I need a cold shower.....

I would have to agree.

I'm in Team Watson here. I went all wobbly when he pulled rank at Baskerville.

Me next in the cold shower!

I like Moriarty too...

brainwashed Sun 20-Jul-14 19:14:03

Watson? Are you serious?!

DiseasesOfTheSheep Sun 20-Jul-14 19:14:12

I'd rather Sherlock (or even Mycroft) than Moriarty. Shudders I think I'd even rather Mrs Hudson...

DiseasesOfTheSheep Sun 20-Jul-14 19:15:32

Deadly serious. I think I may be sectionable though. I have had some strange crushes in the past. First crush I ever had was on Wesley Crusher so I clearly have issues...

He's creepy as hell.

FixItUpChappie Sun 20-Jul-14 19:24:27

YABVU - I've seen that Molly kiss too several times

TalcumPowder Sun 20-Jul-14 19:24:37

YANBU at all. Mind you, my own order of preference would run Mycroft, Moriarty, Lestrade (Lestade? Anyway, sexpot Rupert Graves), Sherlock.

Lottapianos Sun 20-Jul-14 19:25:11

No, not getting the Moriarty thing I'm afraid. And I think he's very overplayed by Andrew Scott - just too far on the side of hammy

But thanks for reminding me about the Molly kiss - off to fetch a cold flannel....

Tapirbackrider Sun 20-Jul-14 19:40:39


It's Sherlock, then Moriarty, then possibly Lestrade. <fans self>

squoosh Sun 20-Jul-14 19:43:55

They're all very plain and I would turn them all down.

OorWullie Sun 20-Jul-14 19:47:27


But not as Unreasonable as squoosh.

hallamoo Sun 20-Jul-14 20:04:25

...but I do love a bad boy....and a bad boy with a brain! (in my fantasy world!), I'm not sure what it is; the eyes, the mouth, the voice, his demeanour........I so would!

hallamoo Sun 20-Jul-14 20:05:40

Talcum, Mycroft???? Seriously?

Hassled Sun 20-Jul-14 20:08:12

Moriarty is way better than Sherlock. Better actor, better character, better looking...

squoosh Sun 20-Jul-14 20:11:49

Sorry Wullie!

Actually a friend of mine went out with Moriarty when we were about 15. For ages I couldn't think where I recognised him from. School discos.

FiftyShadesOfGreen Sun 20-Jul-14 20:13:26

YANBU. Total fanny gallops for the sociopathic little bastard.

MollyHooper Sun 20-Jul-14 20:52:21

That was poetic Fifty.


ghostmous3 Mon 21-Jul-14 00:40:24

I wouldnt say no to Mycroft either. Yum

NotTheKitchenAgainPlease Mon 21-Jul-14 01:25:26


I love Mark Gatiss <swoon>
But I have loved Rupert Graves since Room With a View

steff13 Mon 21-Jul-14 02:07:29

I generally go for the villian in any given TV show/movie, but I get the "fanny gallops" (LOVE THAT!) for Benedict Cumberbatch. The things I would do to that man...

OnIlkelyMoorBahtat Mon 21-Jul-14 10:40:52

Lestrade (gosh, Rupert Graves has aged fantasically hasn't he?)


PS "Fanny gallops" - hahaha!
