The Red Headed League
Sherlock Holmes and I surveyed this curt announcement and the rueful face behind it, until the comical side of the affair so completely overtopped every other consideration that we both burst out into a roar of laughter.
My very favorite scene in this episode. Watson trying to make a straight face is so very adorable. Seeing Holmes laugh is every time again so wonderful.
It’s even worse than I’d heard so far. Oh god, Benny.
OMG. BENEDICT GOT HAD. I AM DYING!!
In WWII the phrase “Vatican Cameos” was used when a person who was not in the British army came before the general, or other high up ranks, as a signal to the other officers that the person was armed.
So when Sherlock says “Vatican Cameos” to warn John that the safe has a gun in it, it’s not something that they’ve set up as a code word- It’s a code Sherlock knew John would know- being a soldier!
BBC Sherlock AU: Jim Moriarty is the world’s only consulting detective, and Molly Hooper is his doctor/blogger. Sherlock Holmes is the consulting criminal with his sniper, John Watson.
