Did You Know?


In the opening scene, the standing monk mutters a Tibetan greeting to the others. He seems to mispronounce it as "Tashi Dalek." Writer and co-creator Steven Moffat is show-runner and writer for Doctor Who (2005), in which the Daleks are a race of alien villains and the Doctor's main nemesis. See more »


Most of the supposedly German jurors obviously aren't native German speakers, as evidenced by their pronunciation of "Nicht schuldig" (especially the 'ch' in 'nicht' is a dead giveaway). See more »


Mycroft Holmes: Don't be smart.
Sherlock Holmes: That takes me back. 'Don't be smart, Sherlock. I'm the smart one.'
Mycroft Holmes: I am the smart one.
Sherlock Holmes: I used to think I was an idiot.
Mycroft Holmes: Both of us thought you were an idiot, Sherlock. We had nothing else to go on till we met other children.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh yes, that was a mistake.
Mycroft Holmes: Ghastly. What were they thinking of.
Sherlock Holmes: Probably something about trying to make friends.
Mycroft Holmes: Oh yes. Friends! Of course you go in for that sort of thing now.
Sherlock Holmes: And you don't? Ever?

Teasing the audience
25 December 2013 | by catchmadhav16See all my reviews

Well, this is more of a jumbo trailer type thing. You don't get to know what is gonna happen in the coming episodes but it only informs you that sherlock is coming back.(As if we didn't know about it, duh). Its 7 minutes and 12 seconds long....what did you expect? Watch out for John Watson though, he can catch your eye. Again, Benedict Cumberbatch does a great job by teasing the public watching the video....all his winking , smiling at the camera..... It just made me more eager to watch the coming episodes.For me it was the perfect Christmas gift :-) Catch it on you tube! The next episode is on new years eve making it my perfect new year gift again. The game is back on people!
