In the subtitles of the episode the word was blud. My favorite online dictionary says it means brother. Is that right?

"What place?"
"221B Baker Street."

I also read "blud" in subtitles. And also find the explanation brother. Seems to be colloquial.

OK, so if it's Blud (brother).... that's not much in character for what he would say..... would it???

I don't think it's a really polite form of brother. Won't say it's out of character then.

Re: Blood???? Sherlock gets his coat back, and turns and says to Mycroft..

But why would he say 'blood'? Because there is blood on the coat?

If you are a non native speaker and don't know all vocabulary you think of "blood" first. Well, I did. Needed the subtitles to recover the real meaning.

Yeah I've never understood that either. Maybe if I tweet Mark Gatiss he'll answer it.

ETA: Tweet is out there...

Blood. Meaning brother. Like in the south they say what up blood. Meaning brother.

Maybe. But they don't say that in England.

yes they do. It's 'ghetto slang', a bit like when Sherlock shouted 'laters!' to Mycroft as they were leaving Buckingham Palace

It does mean brother, but people use it in the meaning of 'friend', like you would say 'mate'. Upper class people don't use it, it's colloquial and more belonging to youngsters - possibly from South - South East London. I have heard it being used by some friends of mine. I might have even used it myself as a joke

I think it's just Sherlock trying to be funny and wind Mycroft up as usual.

Thank you everybody... I think that you have answered it.
I thought it was odd... but being the "Yank" that I am... sometimes I'm at a disadvantage.
Cheers!

Re: Blood???? Sherlock gets his coat back, and turns and says to Mycroft..

He actually stressed the word a bit too much imo. So I think it was slightly ironic again. Just like "brother dear". ;-)
