15 Days of Sherlock: The Countdown to Series 3, Day 15

Dear readers,

Do you feel that sort of buzzing in your veins and and thrumming in your brain, and you can’t sit still because you’re fairly certain little tiny detectives, pathologists, doctors, criminals, DIs, and not your housekeepers are running amok up there?  Is it the caffeine?  Maybe.  But it’s much more likely because, by Mycroft’s umbrella, you made it.  Day 15 is finally here, and you soldiered through and made it.

You only have hours to go now until Series 3 premiers with the ‘The Empty Hearse‘ tonight on PBS.  What to do until then (because you swear that clock is deliberately distorting time and 10 o’clock can’t come soon enough)?  Celebrate the end of the great wait – you deserve it.

Day 15 – Bringing Reichenbach

Your excitement levels may very well be reaching heretofore unknown levels.  So to keep you from doing anything along the lines of a bored Sherlock, here are a few ideas for passing these last hours spoiler free.

Review for Series 3.  Go back to your queue of Reichenbach theories and prepare to have your mind even more blown when we actually find out tonight.

Best. Theory. Ever.

Great Mouse Detective?  Yes.

This is also an opportune time to reminisce about how wonderfully insane the Sherlock fandom is.

While you’re at it, look through your tumblr at all those Sherlock-tagged posts and Sherlock Pinterest board.  Retrace your journey to Series 3 through the many gifs, fics, and pics that made you laugh, cry, and love this fandom even more.  There were ups and downs…but mostly there was a lot of silly shenanigans.  Thank you Sherlock fandom, it wouldn’t be nearly as fun, charmingly crazy, and hilarious without you. Now who’s ready to do it again?

Today, do whatever it is that makes your Sherlockian heart most happy.  Maybe you’ve 221B-ified your house and now you’re preparing for that epic Series 3 Sherlock Party with Sherlockian friends.  Perhaps you’re working on making your board games a little more SHERlocked, and baking some delicious Sherlock themed goodies.  You could be running around as Sherlock, deducing the world.  And maybe you’re having a good old Sherlock Holmes reading or watching marathon!  Whatever it is, do it.

Thank you to everyone who has been following the 15 Days of Sherlock, it’s been a blast to do and I hope you’ve had as much fun with the countdown!  Tonight is the night – tune in at 10pm to PBS Masterpiece Mystery for ‘The Empty Hearse‘!  So enjoy, and be sure to leave a thought on the episode in the comments.  See you on the other side.

“I have now been compelled to make a clear statement of his career it is due to those injudicious champions who have endeavored to clear his memory by attacks upon him whom I shall ever regard as the best and the wisest man whom I have ever known.” – The Final Problem

Thanks for reading, cheers!  Until then…

  1. Very clever countdown material – and quite creative!! The new episode was wonderful — the actor really gives Sherlock humanity with a touch of humor.

    • I agree, Cumberbatch’s performance is very compelling! I love how they bring the humor from Conan Doyle’s original writings into it, and everyone (cast, writers, etc.) has so brilliantly brought these characters into our world. Thanks for your comment! 🙂
