Lifting The Ban on Series Four Spoilers.

As it has now been a decent amount of time since the airing of series 4 of Sherlock we feel it is prudent to relax the ban on discussion of series 4 episodes in the general Sherlock discussion areas.

We would ask that members continue to keep within the bounds of topic titles and subjects, in order to make it easier for people to choose which discussions they wish to view.

Yes it was. And - of course - he's got a lot of flak for posting elephants before S4. At least enough flak to make him post a statement that he's sorry if someone was misled, but he posted them, because he likes elephants. Well, I warned him he's playing with fire, but he didn't listen :P Or he knew this and was trolling the conspirators. :naughty:

 

Another fun fact:

In this picture of Ian from Dr Who episode, he's wearing the wig used for Ben's stunt double from Sherlock. Next curious case of creative recycling.

Interesting. Does Ben use his wig exclusively?

I suppose that is real-haired wig. It looks good, so should be high quality one and costly. I remember reading Cersei Lannister's wig cost 7k, but that is very delicately made.

I may be on the side of the angels, but don't think for one second that I am one of them.

I'm not sweet; I'm just high.

Don't know, I have a blurred memory of a "Sherlock" wig at the first Sherlocked. Ben having his own wig - could be - he has a huge head :D And those things ARE expensive. Here is a little video, it's in German, but there must be plenty of them in www. So I'm not surprised they re-use them as long as they last.

Benedict goes between his own hair and a wig depending on length of his hair when filming (e.g. the longer hair of his Hamlet fit in well with filming Doctor Strange (longer more Sherlock-length hair for most of it) followed by filming Sherlock.
