A Work In Progress.
In light of me writing an essay on Sherlock and TJLC I wanted to do my own compilation. I will update this as I come across material that was previously unknown to me and if you have anything that’s missing, please let me know!

Wait a minute…
We got season 3 in Jan 2014.
If what they are shooting in January is a Christmas special, it means it will air in December 2015.
So basically we’re waiting 2 years, as usual, but we’re only getting 1 episode, instead of 3.
And then 1/2 years for actual season 4…
So the news that we would get 4 episodes was actually to sugarcoat the fact that we’ll need to wait 3/4 years for a full season.
Who cares about work deadlines when there’s a ton of Benedict at ComicCon to watch and look at and drool over?

Caption : Benedict Cumberbatch measures up for a Madame Tussauds wax figure, Britain - 21 Jun 2014
MANDATORY CREDIT: Tussauds. Just days after his thirty eighth birthday and hot on the heels of an Emmy nomination for his role in Sherlock, Madame Tussauds London announces that one of the most exciting and talked about acting talents of his generation, Benedict Cumberbatch, will be honoured with a wax figure at the world famous attraction later this year. Benedict’s figure will be ‘premiere ready’, showing the actor looking impeccably groomed in a stylish dark suit. Work on the figure is well underway, and the actor has been heavily involved with the creation process. Benedict has given two sittings for Madame Tussauds London’s talented studios team, during which hundreds of precise measurements and numerous photographs were captured to be used by the sculptors and artists. “Finally I can photobomb myself!” joked Cumberbatch. “What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax. I’ve been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy!
Irrelevant personal post.
I learnt today that from October onwards I’ll be living alone. My flatmates I wanted rid of, and now my sister found a job in another city, so everyone is moving out. On the one hand the idea of living alone is a dream come true, but on the other hand I’m a mysanthropic spinster as it is, and I’m afraid I’ll become a crazy catlady, with no cats. I’ll be one sooner or later, let’s be honest, but I’d rather it be later.
I’ll have to find a new flatmate. But, to quote, who’d want me for a flatmate?
Q:Hi, just wondering what your take is on that famous Mycroft quote: 'My brother has the brain of a philosopher or a scientist, yet elects to be a detective. What might we deduce about his heart?' – what do you deduce, Ivy?
The easy answer is that Sherlock tells us why he’s a detective: it’s a replacement addiction. Either he solves crimes, or he gets high. Apparently being a scientist or a philosopher wouldn’t provide the same kind of high. There it is! Done and dusted, right? Should we believe him?
Much like his creators, Sherlock lies. He lies to project an image of himself that he tries to embody, even through it really doesn’t fit. So perhaps we shouldn’t take his explanations of his own choices at face value.
