  1. This is exactly what my interpretation is. Sherlock noticed that John sees Mary (or senses her, or just leads an inner dialogue with a part of his psyche that escapes his control) and acknownledges this. Or just shows off to impress John. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  2. Hey Kat, interesting question indeed. My intpretation of Mary's appearance in The Lying Detective is that she isn't a ghost at all, rather a figment of John's imagination. He's so upset by her death that a part of him simply refuses to acknowledge she's gone and projects a mental image of her back into his life. Not a hallucination exactly but the fantasy seems to be extremely intense and bordering on pathological. When Sherlock "sees" and talks to her too, I take that to mean he has deduced what's going on with John and simply accepted it in a spirit of "it's ok to not be ok". What does everyone else think?

  3. Thanks for that info, DV. Even though I've seen a lot of old movies on TV (and have read the book that one of Russell's movies was based on), I don't recall ever seeing anything she was in. Such a sad story, though. That article kept calling her "shy," but sounds to me like she was an introvert (and possibly shy as well). If her mother hadn't goaded her into an acting career, she might we'll have lived a long, satisfying life as an illustrator. So I shall add one more item to my list above: stage parents. Like alcohol, they can have a fairly benign effect, but in more extreme cases they can be deadly.

  4. With Cabin Pressure being a radio sitcom, you don't exactly see it. The BBC site has this to say about it: Cabin Pressure is a sitcom about the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one plane, charter airline; staffed by two pilots: one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. Whether they’re flying squaddies to Hamburg, metal sheets to Mozambique, or an oil exec’s cat to Abu Dhabi, no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.

  5. Oh yes... sometimes this is the worst of all. I can think of multiple, young actors that this applies to. It saddens me that parents perp this type of corruption on their children, but it's not as if Hollywood or any major film industry is exactly a picture of innocence.
