In addition, Mycroft is not very easy to get. Even for Moriarty.

In the canon it's understandable. In view of their complicated relationship here, his involvement in Sherlock's faked death should be done without compromising it, and Sherlock's ego as well.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

Well, in the canon it is suggested (or maybe it's just me, but I got that vibe) that Sherlock and Mycroft aren't really all that close either. 
They are friendly, most of the time, but it can't be compared to Holmes' friendship with Watson.
I think that despite their differences, Sherlock still cares about Mycroft and might just trust him enough to tell him about his plans.
In the canon, Mycroft makes sure that Sherlock's rooms in Baker Street are still there, doesn't he? It's been a while since I read that book
So I think that maybe, Mycroft will help Sherlock in the series, too. It would make sense to me.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

My favorite part is the mind palace scene. It's almost poetry in motion and it feels like we're privy to a very private moment of Sherlock's. And of course it's very impressive, another of those scenes that make you feel like indeed brainy is very sexy. And that triple thud at the end, looks like he's a little stunned when he gets the final revelation, not unlike the triple thud I experience when I look at some pictures...:D

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

favourite scene: John's reaction when he figures out that Sherlock has used him as a lab rat. This guy, we know can kill with one hand behind his back & he produces the tamest attack on his friend who nearly scared him to death.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

My first favorite part is Russel Tovey as a man being plagued by a giant demonic hound. Especially after Being Human. Great nod to a wonderful actor!

Actually, there is so much to this story I really like. At first I really didn't think I would appreciate it much, since it was the very first of the Canon stories I ever read...but once it unfolded it was genius. I think my favorite thing about it (besides so much you all have already mentioned!) is the Army base. Reminds me of all those Conspiracy-UFO-type movies and stories out there. Having scientists messing around with DNA-switching, etc really set the scene.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

My favourite part wasn´t mentioned here yet, I think. It´s about 10 minutes long, starts with the second time Sherlock stands on that Dartmoor hill (the morning after his long fear-monologue at the fire place). You hear a knocking, somebody´s knocking at a door and Sherlock turns around on that hill as if the door is right behind him (I love that!). Cut. It´s Sherlock himself knocking at Henry Knight´s door, and after a little Sherlock-like small talk ("Look, there´s damp") he offers to make a coffee and walks straight into Henry Knight´s kitchen. Like a hyperactive wind-up toy he opens doors and closes them quickly again (we know why ). Henry shuffles behind him - I love these contrasts between this extremely alert Sherlock on the one side and the shuffling moaning Henry Knight on the other side.
This scene leads directly into that one with Sherlock apologing to John, and meeting "Greg" Lestrade - so great! But I love the beginning of that long extract most.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

I like the beginning scene when he's all hyper and freaking out. I like the way he explains things when he's psychotic.

As of yesterday, when it made my old man jump out of his skin..the part in the lab where poor John is hiding from the 'monster'. Ha!

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

re mycroft and why didn't moriaty go for him. I don't know, I've wondered this too but my hunch is that he knows mycroft to be cold enough and calculating enough and for Sherlock's relationship with him to be enough of the little brother to possibly consider it a fair exchange. I'm not explaining it well really, but I think if you have a little brother it might make sense better. Older siblings generally do more for younger ones. Sherlock might not sacrifice himself for Mycroft though Mycroft probably would for Sherlock. 

Also, there is the minor point that getting at Mycroft, in the Diogenes Club, would possibly not be that easy.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

Can't pick just one.  There's John pulling rank and Sherlock grinning about it.  Sherlock timing Mycroft to see how long it will take him to figure out his badge is being used, John calling Sherlock "Spock" because Sherlock was quoting Spock who was quoting the canon stories.  Sherlock telling John he just had one friend, Sherlock finding out Lestrade's first name is Greg. And John being relaxed while Sherlock is frantically searching for his cigarettes.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth."
Whoa.  Sherlock was quoting Spock who was quoting Sherlock....Mind blown!!

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

I love scene in lab:Sherlock telling John that it's OK and John's reaction. 
I like Sherlock reaction to info that Lestrade's name is Greg.
In this episode was so many great scenes. 
But my favourite moment is when Sherlock says that he hasn't got friends,just got one and John doesn't say anything at first, then, he says 'Right' and goes away.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

Oh that's tricky...I have many different fav scenes, little moments, etc. Here are just a few I can think of atm (I really need to watch the series again); the part in the Inn where the guy asks John "Is yours a snorer?" Johns reaction, so funny and cute I think http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png
. Like Marheri above me said, the scene in the lab with Sherlock telling John it's ok and Johns reaction. And the part with John and Sherlock by the fire and Sherlock is overcome with emotion and confusion after having "seen the hound", and then the next day where he sees John in the graveyard and talks to him and says "I don't have friends, I've just got one." ...I do believe I caught my breath and my heart jumped a little when I heard that! And of course, when John just walks away so awesome and almost Hobbit like and Sherlock calls after him. Oh, and a bit later when Sherlock hands John the cup of coffee, great moment there. And also when Lestrade first shows up, Sherlock is hilarious! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

John:  "You went on the Tube like that?!"
Sherlock:  "None of the cabs would take me."

Someday I want to go to a convention and see someone dressed as Bloody Harpoon Sherlock.  I will force them to pose for a photo with me.
That is all.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

I like almost everything in this episode because of the relationship stuff.

The scene at the beginning when Sherlock figured out how to get John to reveal where the cigarettes are is very funny.
Sherlock knows that John doesn't want to go investigating on his own. So he pretends not to care about John's company. Which is a bluff of course.
Sherlock is pulling "The Face". John knows that he has lost and must go and fetch the cigarettes and so he walks across the room akwardly.

Re: whats your favourite part of this episode??

After reading this I need to rewatch this episode urgently.
What I do remember is that the Liberty Indiana H.O.U.N.D. mind palace sequence is so well made. The acting and on screen bits are just done to perfection.

The poor dog (who in the very end, after it was killed looked like a perfectly norma rottweiler) has been exposed over and over to the gas.  If it can drive a person insane, what will it do to a dog?
