Christmas?  Where was Christmas?  I must've missed that, too. Christmas?

Well... there was snow in the intro scene?

Yes. Snow. What sounds like people singing a Christmas carol. John asking the newspapers guy how's the Blue Carbuncle going (and The Blue Carbuncle is a Christmas story), and then that same guy shouts "Merry Christmas, Mr Holmes!"

The bit of dialogue that gave  the biggest clue to it being Christmas for me was

Lestrade. 'Just to wish you the complements of the season..............Merry Christmas.'
Sherlock. 'Merry Christmas.'
John. 'Merry Christmas.'
Mary. 'Merry Christmas.'

I also love LeStrade's obliviousness!

"I'm part of a campaign, you know. Votes for women",
"And are you for or against?"

 Not an uncommon response at that particular time in history. A fair percentage of women were completely against the idea; and those who supported the vote had split into various factions. Those who wanted full voting rights for all, those who did not want the vote to go to the working class; whether male or female,  those who believed only women of property or financially independant should be able to vote and those who believe it should not be extended beyond married women. 
A women in Marys position may have wanted the vote for herself; but not for her servants for instance.

I posted the SPECTRE trailer in another topic and was beginning to talk about how I'm not sure what Andrew's character will be like, but I'll continue here since that's what you guys are doing.  There's a fight between him and M, so it would seem that he at least at some point is not trusted, but he's said that he's on the intelligence side, a member of the British government, so there could be some double-agent or shady dealings type thing going on.  Or they're led to believe he's on the baddie's side, but it's not true.  We'll see.

Na, he's just a nasty piece of work.

Mmmm, So Andrew Scott walks out to the announcement that he is part of Bond's support team; but stands on the 'villians' side of the stage. Double agent?

The next 30 seconds of that video will break your heart

After  20 minutes you think this is going to be a bit predictable with a typical hollywood plotline, And then it subtly changes into something else.

Good film.

Confirmed by Sue Vertue that the Special will be 90 minutes.

Oops. Ignore that, just seen it in another thread

Series Four Suggestions & Ideas » Possible "dark twists" in S4 » July 4, 2014 11:14 am

30 seconds into the show every television in the country goes dark. And we spend the next 90 minutes listening to a criminal mastermind repeating the words 'Did you miss me?' over a blank screen.

And every one of us watches to the very end.

It was easier to spot back in the day as the ink would be smudged, as your hand went over the recently applied ink; rather than away from it.

Tonight on BBC2 at 2000. In amongst the flowers, flowers, and more flowers are interviews with Benedict Cumberbatch and Wanda Ventham. Oh, and some more flowers.

It was a charming movie. I was a little gaga over Snape in it, even though he was a cad.

My friend told me she had taken her mother to see it, and I said that it was a lovely choice for a mom and daughter outing. She replied, "Don't you remember...?!" She meant the scenes of Martin and friend (sorry, I don't remember who she was). Their story was done so sweetly that I had completely forgotten that it was not mom-friendly (mum-friendly).

His 'friend' was Joanna Page. The star of the brit comedy Gavin & Stacey. She was also Queen Elizibeth in The Day of the Doctor.

The Empty Hearse » BBC and theories » April 16, 2014 4:27 pm

Think you have to define 'fans'. There is a proportion of fandom on sites such as this one who believe that theories have been lifted from such forums. I don't buy into that.
But what did happen was that the Fall took on a life of its own and it made headlines in the national press for a considerable time This is what I believe the writers tapped into. In the same way that Sherlocks love life made front page headlines in HLV. Sherlock lives in the modern world. It would be difficult; and somewhat odd, for that side of things to be ignored. The guy is a good looking celebrity sleuth who solves high profile cases. He can't do that operating in a bubble.
