Re: Series 4 promo articles

The above mentioned radiotimes review mentions babies, dogs and Uncle Sherlock too... sounds a bit like a sitcom, TBH....

Re: Series 4 promo articles

I think it's becoming more and more clear that the baby/dog/Uncle Sherlock stuff is just the light start to an eventually dark and surprising episode.  I honestly don't think it's going to be like a sitcom.

Being inhuman was on of the most interesting things about Sherlock?!?

He's not watching the same show I am.

Re: Series 4 promo articles

I got the same impression. Another one who never grasped that the show was not about the cases in the first place and who did not like the humanisation of Sherlock. I think they will have to accept that this is not the show they thought it was. What I do not understand, however, is that they arrived at this idea at all. Sherlock was never inhuman. We were shown his other side from ASiP on. This is the story they have been telling all along.

If people who don't get the show don't like TST we will most likely love it, right? :-D

Not sure if this is the rigth place, but this was published today - Martin and Amanda Sherlock Trivia Quiz (having to remember lines from the show). Quite funny.





And one yesterday with Mark and Steven:

Mark "Gattiss"!  I shouldn't laugh, I've been guilty of pronouncing it like that too.  I know he says it's obvious, but surnames don't always follow the rules.

That "appointment in Sammarah" thing sounds interesting ...

My first thought was that it confirms my worst fears (Uncle Sherlock), but then my worst fears aren't really that bad, and I don't mind a bit of cuteness and comedy at the beginning of the episode.  

I thought right away that I knew what/who the appointment in Samarrah was about, but maybe the analogy goes further than I'm thinking.  And maybe confirms something  .... I can't really discuss this because spoilers!   If I remember, I might take it over to the other thread.

I believe the reviewer called Sherlock "inhuman" only in response to the language the authors themselves use when speaking about Sherlock. They constantly mention his "humanisation", in one interview they even mentioned that John "trains Sherlock to be human"... so that must mean he was "inhuman" before.
The reviewer seems to suggest (between the lines) that Sherlock was human enough already in S1 and that he was a likable and fresh character even then, before they "humanised" him through constant abuse from other characters.
Personally, I am glad to have read this review. It mentally prepared me for an episode which would be

Mary-centric
with token case which was heavily featured in the promos but which would be kicked aside carelessly in the actual episode
with Uncle Sherlock
and with John and Sherlock who no more enjoy each others company

Now, I can only be pleasantly surprised when these points prove untrue by some lucky chance. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Series 4 promo articles

Thank you!  I'm interested in this: "The first episode of S4 takes place some time after S3 and John and Sherlock are back to solving crimes together".  I'm not sure what they mean by "some time" but I had wondered if we were going to see something directly after the end of TAB, and before Mary has the baby.  Apparently not.  Or maybe it's whizzed through or in flashback.   Anyway, we know that some of it can't be too long after S3 as there is still a baby!  

Now am I right in thinking that although S3 was aired in January 2014, it actually ended in the "future", at the beginning of 2015?   I keep thinking that it ended after Christmas 2013/the tarmac scene at the beginning of 2014, but they had actually moved forward, hadn't they?  Or am I wrong?  Anyway, the baby would be born in early 2015 (I'm still confused about the Telegraph announcement - but maybe that was just a fun way to reveal the name, rather than the date having any significance).   And I suppose we don't know how far S4 will take us after that.  It could catch up to present day or beyond (except that the hairstyles don't seem to change much, so maybe not).
