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.

Hello everyone. 
So have you ever wanted to know a little more about the real life location used for Sherrinford? It’s really a Fort on St Catherine’s Island in Tenby, South Wales. I have just released a short 1 minute documentary about the fort. I’ve always had a connection to this place and I’ve been fortunate enough to have had private access to film in the little seen tunnels underneath the main hall.
 
For full disclosure, the video is my entry for a competition to win a Sony camera. But it’s interesting nonetheless and I thought Sherlock fans would like to see a little more of the real life location. The competition shortlisting is based on youtube likes, so please if you enjoyed it, give it a like and share it if you can.
 
Thanks for your time and enjoy the real Sherrinford!

You know, once I heard that Sherlock's "Sherrinford" interiors were actually filmed on a soundstage, I assumed that what we saw bore no resemblance to what's actually inside the fort.  But judging by your film, it looks like they did derive some inspiration from the real place.

 

You got my Like.  Thanks for sharing!

Yes, no lift down to the depths I'm afraid. And the television probably wouldn't work for cctv monitoring!

 

Thanks for watching and liking, I appreciate it.
