Everything about Sherlock

23 notes


"Not everything in John’s life is about Sherlock."

Uh. Yeah. Yes, it is. That is the origin of Sherlock Holmes. Watson was so obsessed with Holmes that he documented all of their adventures together. He had no purpose after the war until he found Holmes. There would be no stories at all if Watson hadn’t been entirely enraptured by Holmes.

In BBC, John has a blog dedicated to Sherlock alone. He could be talking about Mary, but he’s not. He could have talked about how lovely his wife looked at his wedding. Instead he chose to write about how amazing it was that Sherlock solved the murder. He could have written a blog post about how happy he is that he’s going to be a dad; none. Just Sherlock.

John cancels dates to take care of Sherlock.

John was having suicidal thoughts before Sherlock inadvertently saved him, handed him an exciting new life, and cured his psychological impairment.

John was still grieving and asking for Sherlock not to be dead after two years of him being gone.

After only a month of marriage, John is dreaming of Sherlock, and is visibly irritated that he hasn’t seen him.

I think it’s safe to say that John’s entire life has revolved around Sherlock since he’d met him.

PS. I will stop re-editing these videos I PROMISE!

After making the “Johnlock Evidence" and "All Johnlock Evidence Extended Version" videos I re-watched the series and realized I missed A LOT of important (some of them quite subtle but very relevant) johnlock scenes, including parallelisms and… let’s call it "subliminal messages" (most of them based on meta posts). So here you go. More scenes, far more subtext, better video quality and a more coherent organization. With all the johnlock.

I extracted most of these clips from HDTV copies of BBC’s series Sherlock.

together and apart: one of the many fascinating things about a scandal in belgravia is the “choreography” between irene adler and sherlock holmes. in all their scenes, they are engaged in a dance — stepping forward, pulling back, going past, turning, following, encircling — locked in each other’s orbit, yet refusing to be bogged down by gravity. it’s an indication of what they are (mirrors), what they could be (partners), and what they can never have (constancy).

Hearts in His Eyes: A Textual Analysis of John Watson’s Flirtface



[abridged version]

I’ve been hours trying to write a clever introduction to this garbled mess and keep coming up short, incapable of saying what it is I really want to say. So this is me, chucking cleverness and cutting right down to the question inherent in this meta: “Is John attracted to Sherlock?”

From a lot of viewers I think the answer would be a resounding yes, thanks to the kind of classic romantic tropes the show creators use between the two characters. (As evidenced by the lovely wsswatson’s meta on romantic conventions in BBC Sherlock here.) However, during one of my many rewatches of A Study in Pink, I was struck by the remarkable similarities between John’s behavior in his scenes with Anthea and in the Angelo’s scene with Sherlock.

Many of John’s actions and reactions are nearly identical in these two scenes and being that one scene is commonly accepted as an example of John chatting up a woman, I began to be intrigued by the possibility of evidence and proof that John is doing the same with Sherlock. If you compared scenes in which we’ve been made explicitly aware that John Watson is coming on to someone with scenes in which John interacts with Sherlock, what conclusions would we be able to draw?

In other words, can we determine based on textual evidence from episodes of BBC Sherlock whether or not John Watson is romantically and/or sexually attracted to Sherlock Holmes?

After spending literally hours sifting through episodes of Sherlock, fortunately I can now answer that question, also with a resounding YES.

Benedict said that there is something that was not shown in the movie. That when Alan was subjected to estrogen injections, he said that the doctor was embarrassed to touch him, so he had a device inside of his thigh that kept releasing the injections. He said that after the years it was still releasing estrogen and Alan tried to cut it out from his thigh with a kitchen knife. It was something that they didn’t show but Benedict tried to show through his acting.

I didn’t know. From "TIFF: The Imitation Game premiere and Q&A"
