postnobills: Did it bother anyone else that the the Underground carriage they find in the tunnel is clearly from a 1972 tube stock train when they enter it, but the interior is a D stock subsurface train - the correct type for the District line? Also, individual carriages of D stock can't really be uncoupled outside of a maintenance depot - it requires heavy machinery. The idea that one could simply detach from a train in service is laughable. Having said that, they clearly had only the single carriage by itself when filming, so somebody went to a great deal of effort.


You didn't by chance leave your bobble hat lying around somewhere, did you?

eeyore102: Uchiha_Cycliste: DemonEater: One the article missed:

Holmes specifically describes a situation as "nebulous".

Nebulous is a radio comedy starring Sherlock writer/Mycroft portrayer Mark Gatiss.

I also suspect that maybe the plane we saw at the very end of the last episode might have been GERTI (Golf Echo Romeo Tango India)

Nah, the plane we saw was way too posh to be GERTI. GERTI's supposed to be held together by string, duct tape, and the fervent prayers of its crew.


Well, it *was* carrying Mycroft, right? So they touched up the paint.

nuqneh: I also appreciated the nods to the fans and all the crazy fanfics, like the crazy Riechenbach Fall theories featuring different relationships.


Gatiss said in an interview (it's a podcast available on Empire magazine website via soundcloud but don't listen unless you've watched all three because spoilers) that they chose the Sherlock/Moriarty almost kiss because they thought that was the one ship that fans wouldn't have thought of.

SPOLIERS!

Did it bother anyone else that the the Underground carriage they find in the tunnel is clearly from a 1972 tube stock train when they enter it, but the interior is a D stock subsurface train - the correct type for the District line? Also, individual carriages of D stock can't really be uncoupled outside of a maintenance depot - it requires heavy machinery. The idea that one could simply detach from a train in service is laughable. Having said that, they clearly had only the single carriage by itself when filming, so somebody went to a great deal of effort.

The idea that there could be an abandoned station under the Palace of Westminster is also ridiculous. The palace in its current form was built in the 1840s - some 30 years before the District/Circle lines. Were they planning to demolish the seat of British government to make room for a station? I think not!

Finally, if that one carriage was stuck down there for hours/days/however long it took Sherlock to figure it out - why didn't any other trains hit it? There is roughly one train every 90 seconds on that part of the Underground, and stations do not typically have sidings, only the through tracks. If this station had a siding, how did the carriage get into it? How did the points move and what power source pushed it in there?


Right, right... I'll just get my coat...

Moffat is eventually going to make a show that consists entirely of fan service and an audio track of him going "See what I did there?"
