For All Who Were Wondering

I have never watched Sherlock.

There is a “good reason” for this though- I’m not old enough to watch it. I saw maybe the first five minutes of The Abominable Bride, but we had to turn it off cause this lady decided to blow her head off. I escaped this ordeal unscathed, but the younger kids didn’t. I brought this up because I use a lot of gifs and pics from the show. There is also a “good reason” for this as well. Ready?

Benedict Cumberbatch

He is the reason I’m even into Sherlock Holmes. As some of you might know, I’m a Trekkie, and I got Star Trek Into Darkness well over a year ago. I fell in love with his character, Khan. Before this, my dad bought the complete Sherlock Holmes collection for my kindle. I tried to read it, and I was bored out of my mind! But after finding out that “the guy who played Khan” also played Mr. Holmes, I read through all of it in about three months. I kept thinking “How could I have thought this was boring?” I soon fell in love with Mr. Holmes, in case you couldn’t tell. If he were real he would probably think I was just a stupid little girl, and I would most likely blush. That being said, don’t be surprised to find out that I dressed up like him for Halloween ;)!


P.S I have 42 pictures/memes/quotes/gifs saved to my computer. And I will spend about half an hour looking through them daily, several times a day. .)

  1. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories are fascinating and have been fascinating long before Benedict Cumberbatch. However, watching Steven Moffat’s re-creation of Sherlock and Watson have been quite enjoyable and entertaining, the kind that easily keep you glued your seats for 90 minutes. I agree that some of the scenes can be quite disturbing. Maybe wait a year.
    Have your ever watched the PBS Sherlock Holmes with actor Jeremy Brett? They’re from the 80’s but they are good.

  2. if you watch tv Sherlock, then by definition you will see grisly details because this is tv drama … all the “law and order’ and “mystery” type shows have ramped up their showing of grisly stuff … however, if you read Sherlock stories you will not have the visual impact when “scenes” are described; further you can skip it … so consider reading, not watching the televised version …


  3. Nooooooooooooooooo you MUST watch his gorgeous face on screen, you must watch Sherlock and all of them, if you come round mine we have the whole first and second season on box set and the third season recorded on the tv, there is only 3 or 4 episodes in each, movie fest!!!!!
