    Episode 1.2, "The Blind Banker"

    I possibly need to discuss with this members of the Chinese community. But I don't see what's stereotypical about the role. Surely it's the complete opposite? I mean there can't be that many British Chinese who are involved with organised crime.

    Episode 1.2, "The Blind Banker"

    My initial reaction is just wow. But I also feel I have to defend the Sherlock team on this one. I apologise, but I do feel there is a bit of over-sensitivity around these issues sometimes and Gemma at least shows some awareness of this. I remember some fans slagging the episode at the time and some of the criticism was totally unjustified. They chose to go down the Chinese route, they could have just as easily chosen and Irish route, an Islamic/Mafia route...in fact any number of crime/terror options were open to them. Did it matter which one they chose? And I am sorry, they wanted an actor to adopt a particular accent? Wow. That's something new, lkie actors aren't asked to do that everyday of their lives. I won't say too much more on this in case I offend even more people. But Gemma was damn good. I've watched and enjoyed her in other things since. But I will defend to the end the BBC Sherlock team in all of their choices.

    Sherlock's Fun Facts and Trivia

    Yay. Watched BBC 1's 'Pointless', as usual last night. They had a ' Sherlock' question. Anagrams of the actors names. Naturlaly I got them all. Including Loo's, who was a pointless answer. The hosts were very complimentary about her acting talents.

    Hardly trying to hide, he allowed a fan to take a pic with him.

    I like to feel ACD made his peace with his creation!

    The Lion's Mane

    I assumed ACD either had personal experience or had done his research.

    The Lion's Mane

    I confess it's one of my favourite stories... However, I do remember guessing the solution straight away and thinking Holmes a bit stupid for not doing so!

    The Lion's Mane

    I've read it 2 or 3 times and I really didn't get the distraction thing...possibly I should read it again.
