Rosie's christening

Sherlock, Mrs. Hudson, and Molly all went to little Rosie's christening.  But what about the gray-haired man who stood next to Mrs. Hudson, I wonder?  Could it have been Lestrade, by any chance?  Since the camera showed only the back of his head and not his face, I have no way of knowing, but I really would like to know!  The episode didn't show Lestrade being asked to be one of her godparents, but I'm wondering if perhaps he was.

Re: Rosie's christening

I do think that's him there, but no, I don't think he was asked to be godparent.

Re: Rosie's christening

Good idea for a thread because there was also the lady with the hat in the church. No idea who she was meant to be. And there were also setlock pics of two of the TSoT bridesmaids that were taken when filming the christening. They never appeared in the episode.

Re: Rosie's christening

I can't remember the lady with the hat or her age, but could it be Mrs Turner? Could Mary or John have invited some colleagues from work?

Re: Rosie's christening

That's possible. I can't remember the scene exactly, but were these people standing around with John, Mary, Sherlock, et. al., or were they sitting in the church pews? Is it possible that they are people who were at the church service that the christening was performed at?

No, they were around the font for the baptism.

Re: Rosie's christening

In that case, I would assume they are miscellaneous friends and family.

Re: Rosie's christening

Which, I assume, would include Greg, since he's a good friend of John's.

The problem with family is that Mary herself said she has none and John's has never been shown. We have discussed this already with regard to the wedding where most of the guests seem like strangers, not really connected to the couple.

Re: Rosie's christening

I honestly think they were mainly just scene dressing...but I do think that is Greg at the baptism.

Re: Rosie's christening

Just because we don't know who they are doesn't mean they don't have a connection to the characters involved. Just not important to the story. But yeah, scene dressing is what I think would be a good way of describing it.

Yes, for me, these people are irrelevant.

Good point.  Harry couldn't be bothered to come to John and Mary's wedding, so she most likely couldn't be bothered to come to Rosie's christening either.  And John and Harry's parents are most likely dead; they would have surely come to their granddaughter's christening if they were still alive.  So the christening party, of necessity, consisted solely of some of their friends, including Lestrade.

Re: Rosie's christening

I also think a drunk Harry would be even less welcome at a baptism than she would have been at the wedding!

Drunk Harry at Rosie's Christening could have been funny though! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Rosie's christening

I apologise for being such a puritan, but being tee total, I never find drunk people amusing.
But it's not all about me!
No I meant, I think it could have been seen quite inappropriate for a drunk at a baptism...though I know you have all of that pathetic 'wetting the baby's head' tradition.

Re: Rosie's christening

I don't think it would have been that funny in the context of a baptism. Sherlock being on his phone was enough. That episode already had a lot happening in it, too.
