Sherlockians, there’s been a mystery that’s plagued us since the first series, one far more mystifying than how Sherlock actually survived the fall. Or what secrets Mary has been hiding. Or if John even really liked the mustache.
Just who IS the Random Sexy Extra in The Blind Banker?
Look at this dude, doing more with two seconds of screen time than most can do in two hours. Or at least two minutes.
Even the grand overlords of Sherlock were puzzled.
He is Daniel van der Molen.
The mystery was laid to rest when he discovered the video in which I dubbed him RSE.
Stay sexy, Daniel. And pop back up in another episode for two seconds looking attractively bemused any time.
[Sherlock 3x02] Greg Lestrade and Molly Hooper’s reactions at Sherlock’s “best friend” speech.
This is why I need the jokes about Sherlock not knowing Greg’s name to stop. While I firmly believe that Sherlock’s just being a little shit at this point and knows fully well it’s not Graham or Gavin, Lestrade deserves so much better.
I was disappointed by The Empty Hearse. It felt super disjointed. Moran was a complete nonentity (and not connected to Moriarty, which this Holmes nerd didn’t appreciate). The connections to The Empty House were stretches, which isn’t usually a problem this show has. And, to top it all off, Sherlock was awful.
But.. I. Loved. Sign. Loved, loved, loved. The references to canon were stellar. (TONGA! They even worked in Tonga and his blow darts. I figured that was one detail they’d have to leave out.) The direction, the way the story was laid out, everything was just so good, not to mention the acting.
*Insert happy fan flailing*
Congrats Illinois! Illinois will become state number 15. http://www.glaad.org/blog/breaking-illinois-passes-marriage-equality
THAT’S MY STATE!
Do you know how often I get to be proud of Illinois politics? Never. The answer is never. But today is a very good day.
