True.  And Sherlock's bedroom in ASIB was part of the plot, with Irene entering it, and then sleeping in it - it wouldn't have been the same if it had been the living room!   I suppose we haven't had a plot-based reason to see John's, so no need to make a new set.  We do get a look at his bedroom in the house with Mary in HLV, don't we?  With a kind of flashback to his bedroom at the beginning of ASIP.

I would love to, but I'll be at work, sadly!  And the free tickets are just for the red carpet, not for the premiere itself, and no guarantee even if you have a ticket (as they overbook them in case of people not turning up).  If I lived in Sheffield and had the day off, I'd go to the showing if I could (not sure how you get tickets for that).  But I was little bit disappointed with another of these special showings that I went to (the show itself was great, but the sound was terrible and it was freezing).

Have a wonderful time in London, BB!

I forgot to mention, there is a premiere in Sheffield, on the 24th.  You can apply for tickets for the red carpet event, with priority for locals:

Counting down to the new series now.  The first episode is on Sunday 7th October.  Yes, a Sunday!  I'm not sure I'm ready for that change after it being early Saturday evening since my childhood!  However, it was frustrating that the time kept being changed.  Maybe it will be more stable on a Sunday.

I've gone the other way.  I kept needing new glasses through my forties, and now have had the same prescription for years.  I was short-sighted to start with, so I wonder if that's what makes the difference?  (Sorry, getting OT, but it's so quiet, I don't suppose it matters!).  Anyway, I think Martin suits glasses.

Yes, I think it's the particular vision problem that we're trying to diagnose - lol! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png
  I'm still going for presbyopia, because I noticed a big change myself in my 40s.  I remember thinking, it doesn't matter how young you look for your age, it's a giveaway when you have to hold things away from you to read them!

I don't think we ever see John's bedroom, so no wonder it's confusing!  We do see Sherlock's in ASIB (maybe at some other time too?).  And see Janine coming out of it, so we know it's there!

Yes, it's a word!  But he's not a youngster, so it could be presbyopia (I think that's the correct term!) - vision change due to aging.   The odd thing is that he's wearing glasses, so you'd think they would be correcting for that - but quite possibly they are not varifocals.

I haven't seen Chappaquiddick, but I have seen Phantom Thread!  I had much the same feelings about it as you, NoShipSherlock.  Is it really Daniel Day Lewis's last film?  I thought the three main actors were fantastic, all so watchable and compelling, but particularly Lesley Manville who I just kept wanting more of!  It's nice to see such an original film, and such a different sort of relationship. And it was unexpectedly funny at times!  I watched and read a bit more about it as I too found I kept thinking about it afterwards, and found that some  parts were improvised - kudos to the actors for doing that so brilliantly.  And that DDL prepared for the part by amongst other things, studying fashion designers and practicing dressmaking, and that some of the "actors" were actually seamstresses!  It was uncomfortable to watch at times.  I was torn between rooting for the characters and being horrified by them!

Nice!  I'm seeing this as Ben's internal monologue (dialogue?) when acting!

That would have been lovely!  I'm wondering if it's a hotel room because it seems a bit bare.  Although, maybe it's just their style!

Judging from the past (i.e. things I would have liked explained in the next series/episode which never were!) I don't think they'll go out of their way to explain this if there's a S5.  Especially when it's something most people won't really bother about, or just think "It was Eurus".  The only way I can see it come up is if Eurus is in S5 in a significant way.  I think she could feature, but I feel they've kind of done the Eurus story.

Always good to hear these positive comments!  Although I do like the end of TFP (but I think it only concludes the first part of the story, so more could easily follow and I obviously want more episodes!)

Editing to add: I was hearing on the radio that Poldark (BBC) would not be made in the same way if it started now.  They had struggled with the budget, and if it was made now it would probably be a collaboration between the BBC and one of the big international companies like Netflix.   I was just wondering if that was a possibility with Sherlock, as there are so many viewers outside the UK - if the BBC could bring in another big company?

We know she had a lot of connections with the outside, and was a master manipulator.  I don't think it would be hard for her to extract information or to predict things (going by the way they portray her).   I also wonder just how much information Mycroft himself was feeding her.  He made the mistake of thinking she was "safe" at Sherrinford, and I do think he was being manipulated by her too. 

There's also a possibility that she didn't know about the exile, but just wanted to start off the "game".  It does seem a coincidence that comes just at the right time, but actually it would have had the same outcome (of saving Sherlock) if it had been broadcast earlier, or in fact, a few weeks or even months later, as long as they could have contacted Sherlock to bring him back.  And Eurus has been planning for a long time.  Presumably she'd have started off the game at some point anyway, regardless of whether Sherlock had been exiled.  I like to think that she knew, though, and was saving him.  It mirrors nicely with him having to save her when she's on her imaginary plane. 

Anyway, I think Mycroft was the only other serious suspect for the "Miss Me" cliffhanger, but I think Eurus makes more sense.

"Appledore" will be open to the public ... for four hours in September!  I'm not sure if anybody here lives locally and fancies a look?

I think that possibly the reason it wasn't confirmed was that we were meant to guess it.   I think the show does confirm that Moriarty really is dead, and that Eurus was using him to manipulate Sherlock.  

Nakahara, it is mentioned at the beginning of TST when they talk about the video and Moriarty in the secret meeting.

I really like the suggestion of Eurus.  She had footage of Moriarty speaking to camera, and it's on the screen at Sherringford.  If she knew about Sherlock being sent off on his mission, then she would do something to bring him back.   And it's the start of the puzzle of S4.  It would tie it altogether nicely.

I didn't mean that was his actual hair!  Only that he looks fine with it in this part, due to being blessed with good looks.  But I do think that it's not what you see for celebrities.  Some of them must have male pattern baldness genes, surely?  But I can't think of many ... I can think of a very few completely bald leading men, but I'm struggling to think of any at the in between stage who aren't covering it up in some way (e.g. by shaving it).  Jude Law, maybe, if he still counts as a leading man.
