The "Sherlock" Season Three Teaser Is Downright Mean In Its Brevity

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Here it is! The Sherlock season three teaser we’ve all been waiting for. Surely it will give us all the answers we need. It’ll explain how Sherlock survived that fall, and we will get to see the reunion between Sherlock and Watson. Yay!

*Presses play*

What? That was it? WHAT? But … but …. DAMN YOU, MOFFAT.

    Never mind Sherlock. Peter Capaldi is the 12th Doctor.

    Damn Moffat, indeed! I hate him and I love him and I hate him . . .

  • LucyKlein

    Love how weird and creative his ideas can be, I hate how he ends up throwing a lot of crazy at the wall with little explanation.

    *spoiler*, so Sherlock knew to bring a body? Had a body of someone his approximate height/age/race/hair color? Who luckily hit the grown face first? The whole thing with Moriarity creating this whole fake identity? WTF?
    Moffat does the same with Doctor Who, comes up with a weird idea, it ends in a crazy reveal/fight, is then largely left unresolved =virtually everything with Amy Pond.
    Also not the best at writing non-stereotypical women (oh look Irene Adler is a femme fatale who needs to be rescued... meh)

    My take on the fall is Sherlock somehow got hold of the doppelganger's body (I suspect he killed him himself, but it could just be he found the body after Moriarty tied up the loose end) and had that dropped. It explains his little speech to Molly about not being who she thought he was (it's why I lean actual killing), and his request for a moment alone. Sherlock is not a guy who needs a moment to collect himself-- he used the time to pocket text Molly to prepare for the drop.

    He did, of course, then jump himself, into the truck which took off. He arranged for the cyclist to concuss Watson (either because he'd otherwise arrive too soon and blow it or simply notice inconsistencies with the body) and Molly also gets to forge fingerprints/DNA/dental. The body has to hold up to at least cursory examination by people who actually know Sherlock, and the face we saw post-fall was still very Sherlock-y. Nothing less than Sherlock himself (which I don't think would ultimately work-- I expect that Sherlock would expect that Lestrade or mean DS lady could check for exotic death faking toxins and so on) or a high-quality, Moriarty-commissioned doppelganger would do.

    I'm guessing he thought to bring a syringe of something to knock himself out enough and kill his pulse that his limpness would survive a three (four?) story fall. More in line with the original Reichenbach explanation and remember: Watson took his pulse and didn't feel one. In Moffatt I trust.

    Sherlock had a body he dropped off the side of the building. They did bury someone, someone who feel *face first* onto concrete, I don't Sherlock would survive that without a mark on him. The landlady made an off handed comment about Sherlock storing bodies or something, suggesting he tossed someone else.

    Even if it Sherlock did inject himself with something and that was him that jumped... Basically he had this serum with him... just in case and he landed face down on concrete, later work up in the morgue with minimal injury (?), walked out... and they buried an empty coffin? Even if he switched his body with another, the people in keep count on bodies and he just happened to fine one with the same appearance who wasn't someone who had a family/friends and could easily go missing?

    On a bright side, what a glorious mustache Watson has!

  • melia

    Is no one going to mention Watson's grief mustache? He wears his pain on his lip, to remind him...

  • $65530708

    Seconded. But everyone knows one wash-away blue streak in your hair is the proper way to express grief and remembrance.

  • basse buus

    I will keep on saying it: Mads Mikkelsen's brother is going to play the bad guy.

  • Jen

    Yeah? Everyone knows he's the new villain. What's your point?

  • BlackRabbit

    I didn't. Who's he playing?

  • basse buus

    Charles Augustus Magnussen according to IMDB

  • BlackRabbit

    Darnit, I was hoping for Sebastian Moran.

  • basse buus

    That I am excited about all the cheekbones in one show! It's gonna be the fight of the cheekbones with a moustache sidekick!

  • pnnylne

    For that clip, you sir, [img]=[/img]

    WTF?! They could've at least let us hear one line!

  • josh

    what a TEASE.

  • Zen

    Sherlock and Holmes? Shh, don't tell the fandom that John took his name.
