Re: Was Mary trying to kill Sherlock, or was it really "surgery"?

Are those TV shows from the US? Perhaps it's different in the UK?

Re: Was Mary trying to kill Sherlock, or was it really "surgery"?

I imagine in the UK, the police would come to a shooting too.  In my experience, paramedics are sent ahead of the ambulance too - the paramedics can assess and start treatment before the ambulance arrives. 

But this is fictional, and the the only way I can get my head round it is to think of it as a sort of alternative "fantasy" universe, where things happen differently.   I believe that the "eight minutes" is actually a standard - ideally most life-threatening situations are supposed to get an ambulance response within eight minutes.  It's not the "time and ambulance will take to arrive" - obviously that will vary and depend on different factors.  I think the eight minutes has just been used as a plot point, and only "works" in the Sherlock universe.

Re: Was Mary trying to kill Sherlock, or was it really "surgery"?

Hmmm, according to Steven Moffat Mary absolutely adores Sherlock... so the shooting was actually an act of adoration and such acts are not investigated by police. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png


(That would also explain while Lestrade nor Mycroft seem concerned about Sherlock being shot....)

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?
