"Immediately as an actor I wanted to understand who [Sherlock] was, what his parents were," [Cumberbatch] adds. "These were questions I asked … I wanted to understand. [Moffat] was just talking about, ‘Can’t this guy just be good at what he does and he’s your age and he looks like you and he’s doing his thing?’ And I went, ‘No, no Steven, there’s a process I’ve got to go through. I’ve got to understand how I became this person.’ "

He didn’t necessarily expect those answers to be revealed to viewers, Cumberbatch points out now. “I can’t just sort of float onto set with a whole bunch of mannerisms and hope it sort of comes off,” he says. “You have to ground it in some sort of reality, otherwise you get found out as things sort of evolve.”

One other thing Cumberbatch insisted on was creating a weakness for Sherlock — his inability to connect with people — another idea Moffat resisted.

"And [Moffat] said, ‘But can’t he just be really good? Can’t he just be good at it? Why does he have to have flaw or an Achilles heel?’" the actor says. "Because I said, you know, ‘Where’s his weakness?’ Because no human being doesn’t [have one]. And however much [Sherlock] tries to convince himself he’s not human, he is."

I was exactly 0% surprised to hear that this is how Moffat approaches characterization.

Moffat has already said himself he didn’t care to know Sherlock’s backstory because “he didn’t even know Mark Gatiss’ backstory”. Honestly, it offended me as a writer.

Of course “Mary Watson” was good enough for her, John.

THAT’S WHAT SHE WAS AFTER THE WHOLE TIME!

She could’ve chosen any name in the world, but she chose Mary Elizabeth Morstan. Then she married a man with the last name Watson.

I SEE THROUGH YOUR LITTLE SCHEME, MARY.

Because I noticed the thing Sherlock overlooked because he was too focused on the “liar” deduction.

Mary is a cat lover.

And now her initials are “MEW.”

"WTF?! Masterpiece Mystery didn't get recorded!" yelled mom the other night.

"We saw all three Sherlock episodes, remember? We’re on hiatus again," I told her.
“Well, FUCK.”

I told her about this image:

I’m delighted that so many folk have been amused by this tweet of mine. There have also been a couple of requests for fan art, so I thought I’d give it a whirl…
