Trivia

The role of Molly Hooper was never in the books or short stories and was only meant to be a one-off character to further indicate Sherlock's lack of social skills, particularly addressing any romantic encounters. However, Steven Moffat and other producers loved Louise Brealey... ...


Quotes

Mycroft Holmes: All lives end; all hearts are broken. Caring is not an advantage, Sherlock.


Goofs

Throughout the works of Conan Doyle, and the writers who have translated his works for other media, Sherlock Holmes is shown as using "deductive logic." Deductive logic reasons from the general to the particular. The bare-bones deductive argument is the syllogism "All men are mortal; Socrates is a man; therefore, Socrates is a mortal." It's amazing how often people screw this up and argue something like, "All men are mortal; Socrates is mortal; therefore, Socrates is a man," which doesn't logically follow. That would be like saying, "All men are mortal; my kid's hamster is mortal; therefore, my kid's hamster is a man." Inductive logic reasons from particular instances to general theories and is the method used to confirm scientific theories. If you observe enough apples falling from trees, you will conclude that apples always fall down, instead of up or sideways. You might then form a more general hypothesis that includes other falling bodies, like pears. Thus is the progress of science. In the annals of literature, no character is as renowned for his powers of "deduction" as the intrepid Sherlock Holmes, but the way Holmes operates is not generally by using deductive logic at all. He really uses abductive logic. First, he carefully observes the situation, then he generalizes from his prior experience, using analogy and probability.


Crazy Credits

In the American (PBS Masterpiece Mystery) broadcasts of this series, certain letters in the closing titles are highlighted red. These letters spell out a word that somehow relates to the episode. These highlighted letters don't occur in the closing credits of the original airings of the series (on BBC) though.
