Please help Sherlock

When Sherlock gets back to civilisation, he's got a lot of catching up to do! Now if his phone is broken or missing he will have to rely on his mind palace if he wants to call anyone.

So I think we could help him here by making a Sherlock's Personal Phone Numbers Book.

There are quite a few phone numbers shown throughout all the episodes. Some are quite easily read, others take some time.
I thought we could make a list of those we find.

Oh also, some brave soul in the UK might get bored one night & try ringing some of them.


So. I am trying to decipher John's number in 'Pink'; you can see it when he tries calling the cabbie, I'm having probs getting a good screen cap of it. My eyes are a little tired of late & my daughter has borrowed my DVDs so I have to use the computer to watch any episodes at the moment. This makes things a little more difficult for me.

Here's the screen cap I have so that anyone who watches knows which numbers need 'filling in'.

So we have 07517??0531   I think???
No doubt there's probably other times where we see his number also but I have only just started this project.



Please feel free to post all others you find along the way. No doubt they are all 'dead' ones, just like in the old movies all numbers started with 555 _ _ _ _ lol.

It's the least we can do to help ease Sherlock back into society.

Re: Please help Sherlock

Nice idea, Kazza!

I just found this one:
Richard Brook (via The Mountford Agency)
020 7946 0749
020 7946 0750


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
John: "Have you spoken to Mycroft, Molly, uh, anyone?"
Mrs Hudson: "They don’t matter. You do."

Re: Please help Sherlock

What about the dead girls number in Study In Pink? It can be seen when the cabbie texts Sherlock to go with him.

Ah, more interesting info for use elsewhere:
jennie.pink@mephone.org.au  (password - rachel in case anyone wants to hack a dead fictional person's account)

+447955905099

Now if a cabbie answers, hang up fast - oh best not use YOUR phone to call that one!

Re: Please help Sherlock

What is Sherlock's own number? Apparently it's on his website. He might be able to call it to locate his old phone.

Re: Please help Sherlock

Gimmee a break, I just started this idea,lol!

Yes no doubt we will see many numbers except where the brilliant screen writing is all we see of messages.

Re: Please help Sherlock

Yes well that's why I posted this idea. I figured everyone will be watching & rewatching episodes all over the place so 'many eyes make light work' If I did them all myself, I could turn into a zombie. There's only so many times you can watch some bits before the eyes just glaze over.

Re: Please help Sherlock

It isn't on his website! He lies! It states that if you want his help you have to write to him at 221B Baker Street or via John's blog. However Kirsty Stapleton has contacted him through the forum on his website about her missing rabbit.

Re: Please help Sherlock

I think Davina he changed the site to read that after it was evident that people were not interested in the tobacco ash etc. He got cranky and closed off contact & diverted it all to John's site.
Childish tantrum moment. I feel like slapping him.

Sherlock's number in Pilot is

+44 7544680989

http://up.picr.de/10226381en.jpg


...and the cabbie calls from

Ahh, I already listed Jennifer's number, so yes the Cabbie IS using her phone.

Re: Please help Sherlock

John                        07517890531  (now there's an interesting phone call)
Sherlock              +44 7544680989  (that is of course unless the phone was broken/thrown away/lost)

Not sure he'd need to call himself however. Pointless giving him Jennifer's or the Cabbie's; they're kinda not answering calls these days,lol.

Well, we haven't found much have we?
May have to watch for when he gets calls/texts from Mycroft, although they usually just say his name.

I think I saw a blog out there somewhere where the writer said she sent an email to Richard Brook's address which she could make out on the screen.  They were ready for it and she received an out-of-office message something like "Sorry I missed your email but I'm out of the country right now, etc"  I thought that was kind of cool.  Has anyone tried calling these phone numbers?  Are they real?

And I said "dangerous" and here you are.

You. It's always you. John Watson, you keep me right.

The email address & other juicy items are listed & chatted about here:

Re: Please help Sherlock

Calling Jennifer Wilson's number gets you a real voicemail inbox belonging to O2, but there is no greeting but you can leave a message.

Calling Sherlock's number in the 'Unaired Pilot' gets you a voicemail inbox belonging to Tesco Mobile, where again you can leave a message.

Calling John's number that appears on Jennifer Wilson's phone also gets you a voicemail inbox with Tesco Mobile.

Re: Please help Sherlock

That's surprising. Usually phone numbers used on television programs and in films are numbers that don't actually exist. At least in American films, they always use "555" as the three digits after the area code, and no real phone numbers use that.
