Moriarty crown

100 TV Shows-#13-Sherlock (BBC)


All My Sherlock fic

The most recent of my post-Jack Harkness British TV fandoms, where every show seems to lead to another one (Dr. Who to Life On Mars to State of Play etc etc) and you're generally lucky to have a 1/4 degree of separation between shows. I'm genuinely surprised that Marc Warren hasn't shown up, but I'm delighted that John Sessions did, thereby connecting Sherlock to QI. How cool is that? (ETA-Of course they didn't need Johnny for that, since Gatiss also did one QI appearance, but Session is one of my favorite Brits anyway going back to the original Whose Line.)

I watched the first series when they were shown as part of Masterpiece Mystery, although I'd already been hearing about it for weeks in Fandom Land before that. Second series came to me just before the tragic demise of Megaupload, although I did watch again on Masterpiece Mystery, because the only thing that makes Sherlock better is an introduction by Alan Cummings.

My top ten unpopular, or just possibly weird opinions about Sherlock.
