Dreams Denied. BBC Sherlock and the lost Gay representation

Illegitimate Creation

I had always been curious about the topic and had briefly considered … Continue reading

Hidden images in Sherlock 2 – Kiss Kiss

While rewatching Season 2 episode 1 of Sherlock – Scandal in Belgravia, I noticed something that I had not seen before. Besides a continuity error where Martin Freeman’s legs were crossed and then they were not, I noticed that Sherlock had a lipstick mark on his cheek. I think that we can all guess the … Continue reading
