The early drafts - that's what is really nice if you are interested in the creative process. :D

 

Good idea about the script thread.

 

BTW, they have some other interesting scripts on that website. And all the Sherlock ones are here: http://www.zen134237...co.uk/Sherlock/

Good! That’s good, isn’t it? He’s a
real live wire, is Sherlock. When
we were children, he worked out
from the angle of the car seats and
a smear of lipstick in the back of
the Audi that Dad was having it off
with the au pair. I’m afraid Mum
wasn’t too pleased and that was
that. Bang went our happy home.

 

So, that's the reason for the rumours of Papa Holmes having an affair.

Too bad they ditched that! I strongly suspect this was written before they were planning to introduce Eurus. She would have probably murdered the au pair... Or maybe not. Who knows. Anyhow, as the story stands, it makes no sense for the Holmes to hire any normal person to look after their kids.

And that's why Mycroft's "That's good, isn't it" just kind of hangs there. Maybe he's still *thinking* about that incident but not saying anything.

I think the rumors of Daddy Holmes' affair got started when BC almost blurted it out in one of the commentaries. :smile:

 

In any case, wasn't that actually a plot point in one of the Holmes movies? I'm thinking Young Sherlock Holmes. Although it's been so long since I've seen it that I could be imagining things.


It's this, or Cluedo.

Yup, Young Sherlock Holmes. Which is presumably where they (almost) borrowed it from.

Okay, why is it that I remembered that, but not what I just went upstairs for? :wacko:

Because in the latter case, you left one room and went into another. I read that that's what triggers an awful lot of absent-mindedness, and it certainly seems to be true in my case. (Hey, you asked!)

Unless the deduction happened after Eurus was removed from the home. All the trauma can make people do silly things.

Hast thou never heard of a "rhetorical question?" :P Yeah, I've read that too, somewhere. Annoying human trait, I wish it would go away.
