Seriously. This is better than 99% of the explosion-heavy movies I’ve had to endure for the past few years. I’d *pay* to see this (even if it doesn’t make sense, but then again Dr. Who never has…that’s half the fun). I mean, Sherlock, Watson, 2 Doctors, Moriarty, The Master, Mycroft, River Song, companions, Weeping Angels and more. Oh, my.
Sorry andrew Scott and Moriarty fans (and I’m one as well), but the best we can hope for is his reappearance as a flashback. That was a very large gun which would have made a huge hole in Moriarty’s head (really, be thankful they didn’t decide to be graphically accurate). Moriarty wouldn’t have had enough brains left to read Hello.
Sorry. I keep having The Big Bang Theory lines running through my head and this looks so much like an ugly relationship scene. Oh, wait, it is an ugly relationship scene. Just not the fun kind.
You know this cries out for a fun fanfic. Anyone?
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
If you haven’t watched Reichenbach Fall (Season 3, Episode 3) of BBC Sherlock, don’t watch the video. It’s all the climatic scenes.
This video is much better than the movie the voiceover came from (The Prestige), however, Michael Caine plus Sherlock is a win no matter how you look at it. I find the editor of this video did an amazing job making Andrew Scott, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s performances even more evocative.
And I’m thinking this is a small warning to Moffat and Gatiss that the fans are expecting something amazing for Season 3 Episode 1 and The Return.
Still recovering so I’m running a bit behind on the updates and upgrades to the site. Please be patient and please check back. I’m keeping to my Caption-A-Day Pledge.
Hurray! Another new fan video by HFS (High Functioning Sociopath).
HighFunctioning Sociopath Note:
This one took forever. At times it looks like I channeled Michael Bay. Apologies. I won’t apologize for the innuendo in the final sequence. I don’t actually believe there is anything but a life-long friendship between Holmes and Watson, but an accidental pairing of two clips made me laugh and after that everything just fell into place. I ended up going back and adding all of the Mycroft reaction shots and laughed more. So I kept it.
The song is by a fantastic Seattle-based band called The Senate. The Senate has been on hiatus for a couple of years (although individual members have been creating new work), however, their earlier CDs are still available on iTunes and other places. Check out: http://www.myspace.com/senateband

And, of course, there are some videos of The Senate on YouTube.
I’m letting SherlockCares to cross-promote this video on Tumblr in hopes it will drive some new visitors to this site and some new sales for the charity.
This is probably the longest I’ll ever type, so I’ll end by saying I hope you enjoy it and feel free to comment.
