Re: BBC vs CBS Sherlock Holmes

BBC’s Sherlock:

Sherlock: When I met you for the first time yesterday, I said “Afghanistan or Iraq?” You looked surprised.

John Watson: Yes. How did you know?

Sherlock HolmesI didn’t know, I saw. [flashback begins] Your haircut, the way you hold yourself, says military. But your conversation as you entered the room — said trained at Bart’s, so army doctor. Obvious. Your face is tanned, but no tan above the wrists — you’ve been abroad but not sunbathing. The limp’s really bad when you walk, but you don’t ask for a chair when you stand, like you’ve forgotten about it, so it’s at least partly psychosomatic. That says the original circumstances of the injury were probably traumatic — wounded in action, then. Wounded in action, suntan — Afghanistan or Iraq.

John WatsonYou said I had a therapist.

Sherlock HolmesYou’ve got a psychosomatic limp. Of course you’ve got a therapist. Then there’s your brother. Your phone — it’s expensive, email enabled, MP3 player. But you’re looking for a flat-share, you wouldn’t waste money on this. It’s a gift, then. Scratches — not one, many over time. It’s been in the same pocket as keys and coins. The man sitting next to me wouldn’t treat his one luxury item like this, so it’s had a previous owner. The next bit’s easy, you know it already. 

John WatsonThe engraving?

Sherlock HolmesHarry Watson — clearly a family member who’s given you his old phone. Not your father — this is a young man’s gadget. Could be a cousin, but you’re a war hero who can’t find a place to live. Unlikely you’ve got an extended family, certainly not one you’re close to, so brother it is. Now, Clara — who’s Clara? Three kisses says a romantic attachment. Expensive phone says wife, not girlfriend. Must’ve given it to him recently — this model’s only six months old. Marriage in trouble, then — six months on, and already he’s giving it away? If she’d left him, he would’ve kept it. People do, sentiment. But no, he wanted rid of it — he left her. He gave the phone to you, that says he wants you to stay in touch. [beat.] You’re looking for cheap accommodation and you’re not going to your brother for help? That says you’ve got problems with him. Maybe you liked his wife, maybe you don’t like his drinking.

John Watson: How can you possibly know about the drinking?

Sherlock HolmesShot in the dark. Good one, though. Power connection — tiny little scuff marks around the edge. Every night he goes to plug it in and charge but his hands are shaky. You never see those marks on a sober man’s phone, never see a drunk’s without them. There you go, you see? You were right.

John WatsonI was right? Right about what?

Joan Watson: 
How did you know I was a surgeon?

CBS Sherlock: Google. not everything is deducible.



Edit: Aha, apparently Joan actually said ‘How did you know my father had an affair?’ and not the one I posted earlier (thanks to georgiagallifrey for letting me know). I haven’t watched Elementary and I really have no positive or negative criticism on it. It exists and I’m just not compelled to watch it yet. I just thought it was funny to post the comparison with the gif. Jeez guys, don’t be so sensitive!

Could anyone tell me how to do the download thing for Parade’s End Episode 5? I’m a doofus on this. Or send me a link to stream it? Thank you!

So I raise a morphine toast to you all. And, if you happen to remember that it’s the anniversary of my birth, remember that you were loved by me. And that you made my life a happy one, and there’s no tragedy in that.
