I pity da Sherlockian who has never seen The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.
Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss love this movie and reference it a lot in Sherlock!
I just watched it and it is, in fact, quite good :)
Here is where I watched it online:
(Just click ‘Slow access’ and watch out for pop-ups! I have Adblock Plus.)
If you’re a fan of Sherlock, you should watch it! There are many things that may sound familiar ;)
Enjoyin’ some Pink Floyd when suddenly,
I’m going to try to convince my mom to name our next kitten “Mycroft”.
Every time my family gets a new cat (they don’t last long out here in coyote country), we all take turns naming them. I was supposed to get to name the last cat we got but my family completely ignored the name I picked out (“Chewbacca”, because he looked like a Wookie!) and taught him a different name, “Max”.
They’re excuse was that they wanted to have all our cats’ names start with the letter “M”, so this time around, I demanded that I get to name the little boy kitten at the animal shelter my mom is thinking about getting. She said to make it start with “M” so my suggestion is “Mycroft”!
She’s not sure whether she likes it or not, but she did say it was growing on her as she thought about it! I’d feel so accomplished if we had a kitten named Mycroft.
Sherlock doodle after exams!
Both of these came up when I Google Image searched “Sherlotter”, so I took a screencap of them together!
Guys, I worked out my Reichencrack Theory.
John: ..there were times I didn’t even think you were human.
I theorize that Sherlock was actually from a Star Trek-canon alien race, surgically altered to appear human and was sent down to Earth in order to determine whether or not we were ready for First Contact with his pre-Federation species (like the ST:TNG episode 4.15, First Contact).
Moriarty was beginning to see through his disguised life, though. “Not ordinary,” he called him. (Even Donovon called him a freak.) He had to abort his mission. Sherlock was to transfer all of his accumulated studies (that’s why he was experimenting so much at his flat) to his cloaked ship orbiting above the Earth’s atmosphere, jump from the building, and destroy himself.
However, he wasn’t expecting to become so attached to his favorite experiment: John. He couldn’t bear to leave him. (He doesn’t even realize he loves John! He doesn’t even understand what love is..) He managaed to convince everyone - his fellow disguised alien (Mycroft), his entire pre-Federation race’s scientific community, and all of the people on Earth who knew him as Sherlock Holmes - that he had killed himself.
BUT! what actually happened was that Sherlock programmed his ship to secretly duplicate himself in the transporter beam (like what happened to William and Thomas Riker on the ST:TNG episode 6.24, Second Chances); therefore, successfully continuing a secret life on Earth in order to eventually reunite with John at some point in the third season.
Watching episode one of Sherlock, A Study in Pink and I just took this screencap of the woman in pink’s phone in the taxi cab that was driving Sherlock away towards the end; it was John who was calling.
Netflix has too poor of quality to read it, but I wonder if anyone has ever tried to call this number?
