Hello fellow Sherlock fans.
I am new here. I'm from the US and I have fallen head over heels in love with BBC One's rendition of the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic tales of Sherlock Holmes.
I only started watching two weeks ago and it has become my new obsession. That being the case, after the last episode I could think of nothing else for a time. I needed to know:
1. How did Sherlock do it? He fell, that was him, not some actor, or a robot, or an optical illusion, so how did he fall from the top of St. Bart's and survive?
2. He had to have had help. So who helped him and how did they help? How many players were involved in this elaborate ruse?
3. How can they continue with a third series unless they clear Sherlock's name? They can't, so that must mean that there was something set into the episode that would do just exactly that.
4. Why was Moriarty not mentioned by anyone after Sherlock died? There were no accusations that Sherlock committed murder of the actor he hired before taking his own life. That would have been all over the headlines, not that the genius detective was a fraud and committed suicide.
5. We know Sherlock is alive, we know that Moriarty's people have instructions to kill his friends if he doesn't commit suicide. So how do we have him come back without putting John, Mrs. Hudson and Lestrade in jeopardy?
6. I almost forgot. There is one other aspect that needed to be answered. How would John react when he found out that Sherlock was not dead?
These are the points I have come up with solutions to. I wrote them all down in a little fan fiction called The Science of Deduction's 1st Student. I am finishing up the final chapter so it is not completely posted yet, but if you feel like it, take a peek and let me know if you think I am spot on or barking mad!
Once the final chapter goes up, I'll drop a little note to say so.
