What is on Ben's shirt in the pic of him and young Sherlock? I've tried zooming in on it but can't make it out.

The thing that looks like a gray strawberry, you mean? Darned if I know. Maybe just an optical illusion?

 

Forgive me for b*tching about John's hair again.

*b*tch about John's hair*

Please feel free! I may join you now and then. As I've said before, I have nothing against that hairstyle in general. It's just that it's so *not* John Watson. He might as well have showed up wearing an Afro. (Though that would look silly on Martin Freeman as well.)

Some people have speculated it's an ear bud. (Geez, even I think that looks wrong, and I wrote it.) Headphones!

Thanks. You're probably right. I couldn't figure it out.

Thank you!

Yes it's so not John.

I wonder if they use that to 'distance' John, but if that's the case, his hair should be back at the end of TFP but no. Hmph..

Could it be some clothing label? New costume, forgotten label..

Or microphone, they always wear something weird for audio stuff rite?

Or Ben is wearing surfer style necklace :p?

It's apparently just Martin Freeman's current hairstyle. He's had it more or less that way in most of his roles since about 2010.

But if they can make Ben stick with that hair/wear wig....

 

TBH Sherlock's hair was slightly different this season. However it was more of a variation of his original hairstyle rather than a completely new one.

2010?

Roughly. At first, he was apparently keeping his hair about the same length in front all the time, and merely retaining his older forward-combed style for John Watson while combing it back for most other roles. But the "swoop" has been gradually getting longer, to the point where he couldn't simply comb it forward for John, at least not without looking like a sheepdog. Too bad.
