Re: Johnlock: The Official Debate

I find things like the Mumbai experience so hurtful...a rare moment the guy actually opens his heart and he has it ripped from him, stomped on and thrown back in his face- charming.

Re: Johnlock: The Official Debate

Oh, now I see the picture. I don't remember this particular scene, when was this? I remember John having a tumbler while sitting and reading, waiting for Sherlock to come back. ("danger night"), during Christmas and New Year's Eve. I can't recall that particular moment from that screenshot.

It looks very much like red wine, though. The bottle and the liquid itself.

Re: Johnlock: The Official Debate

I think the bottle and the liquid do look like red wine that picture, but fortified wines can have similar bottles.  Maybe it's just my PC, but later the liquid looks more brown.  And then later still it's more of a pinkish colour - it actually looks more like a blackcurrant squash (Ribena was the other drink mentioned!).  It might that it changes with the lighting, or might be a continuity error.

Why would he drink wine out of a tumbler, when they have wine glasses?  Wine also isn't a traditional drink for Hogmanay (which I think might be why some people are seeing whisky, although the colour looks a bit too dark to me). 

The scene is the one at New Year, when John asks if Sherlock will be seeing Irene again (it's shortly after the Battersea scene), and he plays Auld Lang Syne.

Re: Johnlock: The Official Debate

Port, perhaps? That ca be served in a different type of glass.

Re: Johnlock: The Official Debate

Yes, I'd mentioned port, and some sherries have that brown colour too, but they don't tend to served in a tumbler. (I don't know if any of the fortified wines are? Being stronger, they tend to be in smaller glasses, if anything). They also don't morph into that pink colour in the later shots! 

Maybe it's, for some reason, a deliberately unidentifiable drink?  The odd choice of glass, the front of the bottle turned away, the changing colour?

Maybe it was just ice tea? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Johnlock: The Official Debate

The drinks code would have to be rewritten!
