The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

I wanted to create a thread similar to the Johnlock one, but specific to the granada adaptation (to discuss ABOUT it but not IF it is there).

To start I want to share the masterpost of the love and sex innuendo that I just finished compiling (here, obviously there is a bit of nsfw text to describe the metaphors for sex).
Some of the metaphors are less obvious, but some are really blatant and stock metaphors (for examples the mouth fading into a tunnel with a train going inside it), to the extent that I think they are obviously intended, which gives a higher chance for the less obvious ones to be intended as well.

Also, if you think they are together, when do you think they got together?
I think they got together right after The Devil's Foot, here some reasons:
- because Holmes saying he has never loved to Watson at the end of that episode would mean he hasn't confessed his feelings yet.
- in that episode Holmes makes a big change to his life, giving up drugs, which are according to some interpretations (like the director of TPLOSH's) representative of his not being happy because of homosexuality, so the drugs might go away once Holmes and Watson get to be happy together.
- It is the episode in which he calls Watson "John".
- I don't think they are together from the start because in the first series they don't seems quite so close and even Sherlock says that they didn't know each other so well at the time of the Geek Interpreter.
- I don't think we ever see Watson's bed again after that episode (and even from some episodes before), so it might be one for two people.

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

Granada "The Empty House" was so Johnlock-y (and has such a wicked dialogues) that I never doubted John and Sherlock are a pair after watching that episode.

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

Sorry, I posted in the wrong thread. But the source is the Sherlock Uncovered Villains extra from the Blu-Ray, so it should be reliable. I posted it over there in the Johnlock guide.

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

Nice post about the Granada Empty House which shows how Johnlocky the episode really is:

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

The dialogue is priceless there.
Watson offers Holmes his room, but Holmes wants to sleep where Watson is! And there are heart-shapes in the wallpaper and a pot.

And that nice, entirely canonical dialogue:

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

Isn't "come watson" the most common line of dialogue in the whole series?

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

Also all those bed scenes are at the start of the series, the bed is never visible again and I really think they got a bigger one!
In The Master Blackmailer they are in a set of room that is probably Watson's (Holmes is bathing), but no bed in view.

I wanted to share that in the granada adaptation they added a fake phallic stone (more in detail in the link)
http://bug-catcher-in-viridian-forest.tumblr.com/post/148995590916/sherlock-holmes-1984-a-stone-as-a-phallic

Here's a picture that show the stone wasn't there in real life.

Well, Granada deliberately left out the Watson marriage because she would have been in the way. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: The comprehensive Granada Johnlock guide (Johnlockers only)

Now and again everyone of us may have their doubts about Johnlock. If this happens, think of this. Sherlock's emotions and sexuality do not just matter, they are the show. Straight from the horse's mouth:

Sherlock Holmes, again, must have sexual impulses because human beings tend to — most human beings, not absolutely all, but that’s the majority.   
The fact is, he decides to put all that in an iron box to make his brain work better. 
Of course, the fact that that iron box bounces around and shakes and bangs from the inside is what makes the story interesting. 
      
He wants to rise above us like a snowcapped mountain, but he’s actually a volcano, and THAT’S where the story is. That’s where the story is.
