  1. Who is your favourite main character in the BBC series "Sherlock"? Please vote above and discuss below.
  2. Again, not one of mine, this is another meta by wellingtongoose on livejournal. In this meta wellingtongoose has discussed Sherlock's possible autism/asperger's with 3 psychiatrists. The overwhelming conclusion is that Sherlock (as shown on screen in BBC Sherlock) is NOT someone with an ASD, which I know might not sit well with some people. However, the evidence is well thought out and presented and some good points are made. Wellingtongoose is not the first person to refute Sherlock's supposed Asperger's diagnosis. Seeing as this is a tv series, and fantasy, we can choose to believe what we want. I personally think that Sherlock does display some traits of Asperger's, but that doesn't mean he has enough to give him a diagnosis. There are any number of people who, due to other factors (such as intelligence, upbringing and general personality), are just downright eccentric. Diagnosing Sherlock: Why he doesn't have Asperger's Read at your own risk.
  3. Who are your all time favourite TV/Movie characters, and why? A few of mine: The Doctor (Doctor Who) Spock (Star Trek) Leonard "Bones" McCoy (Star Trek) Han Solo (Star Wars) Data (Star Trek TNG) Odo (Star Trek DS9) Severus Snape (Harry Potter) Ripley (Alien & Aliens in particular) Rick Deckard (Blade Runner) Minerva McGonagall (Harry Potter) Sawyer (Lost) John Locke (Lost) Sayid Jarrah (Lost) Gregory House (House) I suppose I have a tendency to gravitate to characters who are outsiders; who don't quite fit in. I also like characters with murky pasts and prickly character traits. I am also fond of characters who aren't shy about showing their intellect/brilliance. Who are your favourites?
  4. Yup, wellingtongoose has been at it again. This is what is said about this latest meta: This meta is dedicated to discussing the intrigues and deceptions that are only hinted at on screen and play out behind the scenes. I aim to show everyone why Irene is not a loser but an incredibly intelligent and ambitious woman. Read it on LJ
  5. Remember the brief glance we had of John's CV in The Blind Banker? In this meta wellingtongoose on LJ proceeds to take that cv apart, discussing what works and what doesn't work in context of Sherlock and the NHS. Agree or disagree, it's interesting reading and much of the disagree stuff (on my part) is down to what canon provided (the CV itself, and John's age) not the meta. There will be another part to this apparently, so here is the link to the first: Explaining John Watson's CV. If you don't remember the CV, someone has done their best to clear it up and piece it together from screencaps; you can find that version on AO3 - John's CV from The Blind Banker.
  6. As per usual, this is not one of mine but as LJ is kind of the poor relation in fandom circles now, I always like to share. In previous meta, Wellingtongoose on Livejournal has discussed why John would have to be an army GP rather than an army surgeon amongst other things, which you can read as part of her Semantics in Healthcare series. In the latest meta, John's medical discharge is discussed, with a bias towards the personal head canon mentioned in previous metas (GP, not surgeon etc), with reference to the income an army pension would provide and just why, in this day and age, a person with John's apparent level of disability would be deemed unfit to fill his role (which as an army GP, for instance, wouldn't have been on the front line of combat). Explaining John Watson's Medical Discharge
  7. All right. Now, in the episode The Great Game, we find out when Sherlock first started. He said he was a kid in 1989. And on the commentary for The Hounds of Baskerville (I'm pretty sure), Steven Moffat says Sherlock's in his 30's. Said 30 before on the commentary for A Study In Pink. So I did the math. Our Sherlock would have been nine years old when he first started doing what he does. And just a neat little point, at the time of the H.O.U.N.D experiments; 1986; he would have been 6. Also they said the best year for Sherlock Holmes was 1895, but our Sherlock wouldn't have even been born yet! So, on top of all of this, he was 32 when he "left" us. These calculations may vary since we don't know when his actual birthday is. But...we at least know he was born in 1980.
  8. My favourite source of interesting British meta from a Sherlock pov is at it again! This time wellingtongoose looks at why Lestrade is taking his professional life in his hands and why Sherlock *isn't* the world's only consulting detective. All very interesting stuff! Nuclear Meltdown at the Met, Part 1
  9. One of my friends on Livejournal is a psychologist and is writing meta on the characters from an emotional point of view. This time, it is the turn of John. She discusses whether or not he has PTSD, with evidence taken from onscreen to back up her opinions and explains why she feels that John was suffering from depression at the beginning of the series in ASiP. They are well thought out pieces of meta and well worth a read. John Watson and PTSD John Watson, Depression and Somatisation
