I think the BBC has (for once) actually given us a happy Christmas present this year! (that is if we ignore Doctor Who– which we will).
I cannot tell you how excited I have been over this!
WE GOT A WHOLE 7 MINUTES OF SHERLOCK!
7 minutes and 13 seconds of pure gold.
I’m sure many of you have seen this already, but what’s the harm in sharing more cheer around the interwebs.
I can’t even express all of my thoughts about it all!
Anderson! What happened to our clean-shaven butt of the joke? and he lost his job? He’s gone mad trying to prove that Sherlock is still alive, what brought this change about? or was there ever a change at all? was he always like this? someone who looked up to Sherlock even if he was quite abused by the man.
Lestrade, you darling man. It seems as though in the absence of Sherlock, Lestrade has been holding the group together. Keeping in touch with Anderson, visiting John, probably going over to check on Mrs. Hudson when he has the time, which I’m sure he makes. He’s the glue to the crew. He probably was more of that than we ever noticed in the past as well, I mean, forcing Sherlock to make a video for John’s birthday? That’s something big there.
But John, oh John.
First of all, where’s your mustache? No but really, John. He’s moved to another flat, maybe with Mary. He’s done his best to move on, but it’s so obvious he’s never going to really going to get past it. When he sat down to watch that video, talking to Sherlock on the screen, he’s nowhere near recovered. *sigh*
Then when that knock came on the door, the way he glanced over to the door, “perhaps it’s him.” a tiny little spark of hope lit up for a moment, but then life came crashing back down again, no, that’s impossible. Sherlock is dead.
My guess is that it was Mary on the other side of the door…
And then we’ve got Sherlock, that selfish goober. Solving cases all around the world and making his way back to London He’s coming back!
Then there was the whole “smile and wink” thing that made all the fandom squeal in delight, a lovely nod to the fandoms, I must say!
To sum it up, I suddenly feel like I can make it to the New Year now. Only a few more days! We’re down to days now! DAYS!
and with that, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Return of Sherlock in the New Year!
