How's your blog going?

0:01:280:01:30

Yeah, good, very good.

0:01:310:01:35

You haven't written a word, have you?

0:01:350:01:37

You just wrote "still has trust issues".

0:01:370:01:40

And you read my writing upside down.

0:01:400:01:42

You see what I mean?

0:01:440:01:46

John, you're a soldier

0:01:460:01:50

and it's going to take you a while to adjust to civilian life

0:01:510:01:55

and writing a blog about everything that happens to you will honestly help you.

0:01:550:02:00

Nothing happens to me.

0:02:010:02:03

-'What do you mean there's no ruddy car?'

-He went to Waterloo, I'm sorry.

0:02:410:02:44

-Get a cab!

-I never get cabs!

0:02:440:02:47

-I love you.

-When?

0:02:490:02:51

Get a cab!

0:02:510:02:53

My husband

0:03:120:03:14

was a happy man who lived life to the full.

0:03:140:03:19

He loved his family and his work,

0:03:190:03:23

and that he should have taken his own life in this way

0:03:230:03:28

is a mystery

0:03:280:03:30

and a shock to all who knew him.

0:03:300:03:33

Taxi, taxi!

0:03:460:03:48

-I'll be just two minutes, mate.

-What?

0:03:520:03:54

-I'm just going home to get my umbrella.

-You can share mine.

0:03:540:03:57

Two minutes, all right?

0:03:570:03:58

She still dancing?

0:04:330:04:35

Yeah, if you can call it that.

0:04:350:04:37

-Did you get the car keys off her?

-Got them out of her bag.

0:04:370:04:40

Where is she?

0:04:400:04:43

The body of Beth Davenport, Junior Minister for Transport,

0:04:570:05:00

was found late last night on a building site in Greater London.

0:05:000:05:04

Preliminary investigations suggest that this was suicide.

0:05:040:05:08

We can confirm that this apparent suicide closely resembles those of

0:05:080:05:12

Sir Jeffrey Patterson and James Phillimore.

0:05:120:05:15

In the light of this, these incidents are now being treated as linked.

0:05:150:05:18

The investigation is ongoing but Detective Inspector Lestrade will take questions now.

0:05:180:05:23

Detective Inspector, how can suicides be linked?

0:05:230:05:26

Well, they all took the same poison.

0:05:260:05:29

They were all found in places they had no reason to be.

0:05:290:05:32

-None of them had shown any prior indication.

-But you can't have serial suicides.

0:05:320:05:35

Well, apparently you can.

0:05:350:05:37

These three people, there's nothing that links them?

0:05:370:05:40

There's no link we've found yet but

0:05:400:05:43

we're looking for it. There has to be one.

0:05:430:05:45

-If you've all got texts, please ignore them.

-It just says "Wrong".

0:05:510:05:55

Well, just ignore that. If there are no more questions,

0:05:550:05:57

I'm going to bring this session to an end.

0:05:570:06:00

If they're suicides, what are you investigating?

0:06:000:06:03

As I say, these suicides are clearly linked.

0:06:030:06:08

It's an unusual situation, we've got our best people investigating.

0:06:080:06:13

Says "Wrong" again.

0:06:160:06:18

-One more question.

-Is there any chance that these are murders?

0:06:180:06:22

And if they are, is this the work of a serial killer?

0:06:220:06:25

I know that you like writing about these but these do appear to be suicides.

0:06:250:06:29

We know the difference. The poison was clearly self-administered.

0:06:290:06:33

Yes, but if they are murders, how do people keep themselves safe?

0:06:330:06:37

Well, don't commit suicide.

0:06:370:06:39

Daily Mail!

0:06:390:06:40

This is a frightening time for people but all anyone has to do is exercise reasonable precautions.

0:06:400:06:48

We are all as safe as we want to be.

0:06:480:06:51

MOBILE PHONES BUZZ

0:06:510:06:54

Thank you.

0:06:590:07:00

You've got to stop him doing that. He's making us look like idiots.

0:07:040:07:07

If you can tell me how he does it, I'll stop him.

0:07:070:07:10

John!

0:07:210:07:23

John Watson!

0:07:230:07:25

-Stamford, Mike Stamford. We were at Barts together.

-Yes, sorry, yes, Mike, hello.

0:07:260:07:30

-Yes, I know, I got fat.

-No, no.

0:07:300:07:33

I heard you were abroad somewhere getting shot at. What happened?

0:07:330:07:36

I got shot.

0:07:360:07:38

Are you still at Barts then?

0:07:440:07:46

Teaching now, yeah, bright young things like we used to be.

0:07:460:07:49

God, I hate them.

0:07:490:07:51

What about you, just staying in town till you get yourself sorted?

0:07:510:07:54

I can't afford London on an Army pension.

0:07:540:07:56

-Couldn't bear to be anywhere else. That's not the John Watson I know.

-I'm not the John Watson.

0:07:560:08:01

Couldn't Harry help?

0:08:060:08:08

Yeah, like that's going to happen(!)

0:08:080:08:10

I don't know, get a flatshare or something?

0:08:100:08:13

Who'd want me for a flatmate?

0:08:130:08:15

What?

0:08:170:08:19

You're the second person to say that to me today.

0:08:190:08:22

Who was the first?

0:08:220:08:24

How fresh?

0:08:260:08:28

Just in. 67, natural causes.

0:08:280:08:31

Used to work here. I knew him, he was nice.

0:08:310:08:34

Fine.

0:08:340:08:37

We'll start with the riding crop.

0:08:370:08:39

So, bad day was it?

0:08:490:08:53

I need to know what bruises form in the next 20 minutes. A man's alibi depends on it. Text me.

0:08:540:08:58

Listen, I was wondering. Maybe later, when you're finished...

0:08:580:09:01

You're wearing lipstick. You weren't wearing lipstick before.

0:09:010:09:03

I refreshed it a bit.

0:09:030:09:07

Sorry, you were saying?

0:09:070:09:10

I was wondering if you'd like to have coffee?

0:09:100:09:12

Black, two sugars, please. I'll be upstairs.

0:09:120:09:15

OK.

0:09:170:09:19

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:09:220:09:24

-Bit different from my day.

-You've no idea!

0:09:310:09:34

Mike, can I borrow your phone? There's no signal on mine.

0:09:340:09:36

-And what's wrong with the landline?

-I prefer to text.

0:09:360:09:39

Sorry, it's in my coat.

0:09:390:09:42

Here, use mine.

0:09:430:09:46

Oh, thank you.

0:09:460:09:48

This is an old friend of mine, John Watson.

0:09:480:09:51

Afghanistan or Iraq?

0:09:550:09:57

-Sorry?

-Which was it, in Afghanistan or Iraq?

0:09:590:10:02

Afghanistan, sorry, how did you know?

0:10:050:10:07

Ah! Coffee, thank you.

0:10:070:10:09

What happened to the lipstick?

0:10:090:10:11

It wasn't working for me.

0:10:110:10:13

Really? It was a big improvement. Your mouth's too small now.

0:10:130:10:17

OK.

0:10:170:10:19

How do you feel about the violin?

0:10:200:10:21

I'm sorry, what?

0:10:240:10:27

I play the violin when I'm thinking and sometimes I don't talk for days on end. Would that bother you?

0:10:270:10:31

Potential flatmates should know the worst about each other.

0:10:310:10:33

-You told him about me?

-Not a word.

0:10:360:10:38

Who said anything about flatmates?

0:10:380:10:40

I did. Told Mike this morning that I must be a difficult man to find a flatmate for.

0:10:400:10:44

Now here he is just after lunch with an old friend clearly just home from

0:10:440:10:47

military service in Afghanistan. Wasn't a difficult leap.

0:10:470:10:50

How did you know about Afghanistan?

0:10:500:10:53

Got my eye on a nice little place in central London.

0:10:530:10:55

We ought to be able to afford it.

0:10:550:10:57

We'll meet there tomorrow evening, seven o'clock.

0:10:570:10:59

Sorry, got to dash. I think I left my riding crop in the mortuary.

0:10:590:11:03

Is that it?

0:11:030:11:04

Is that what?

0:11:040:11:06

We've only just met and we're going to go and look at a flat?

0:11:060:11:10

Problem?

0:11:100:11:12

We don't know a thing about each other.

0:11:140:11:16

I don't know where we're meeting, I don't even know your name.

0:11:160:11:19

I know you're an Army doctor and you've been invalided home from Afghanistan.

0:11:190:11:22

You've got a brother worried about you but you won't go to him for help because you don't

0:11:220:11:25

approve of him, possibly because he's an alcoholic, more likely because he recently walked out on his wife.

0:11:250:11:30

And I know that your therapist thinks your limp's psychosomatic, quite correctly, I'm afraid.

0:11:300:11:35

That's enough to be going on with, don't you think?

0:11:350:11:37

The name's Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221B Baker Street.

0:11:410:11:45

Afternoon.

0:11:450:11:47

Yeah, he's always like that.

0:11:500:11:53

Hello.

0:12:570:12:59

-Ah - Mr Holmes.

-Sherlock, please.

0:12:590:13:02

Well, this is a prime spot. Must be expensive.

0:13:030:13:05

Mrs Hudson, the landlady - she's given me a special deal.

0:13:050:13:08

Owes me a favour. A few years back, her husband got himself sentenced to death in Florida.

0:13:080:13:13

-I was able to help out.

-Sorry - you stopped her husband being executed?

0:13:130:13:17

Oh, no, I ensured it.

0:13:170:13:18

Sherlock!

0:13:200:13:22

Mrs Hudson, Dr John Watson.

0:13:220:13:24

-Hello. Come in.

-Thank you.

-Shall we...?

0:13:240:13:27

Well, this could be very nice.

0:13:530:13:54

Very nice indeed.

0:13:560:13:58

Yes.

0:13:580:14:00

Yes, I think so, my thoughts precisely.

0:14:000:14:02

-TOGETHER: So I went straight ahead and moved in.

-Soon as we get all this rubbish cleaned out...

0:14:020:14:08

-So this is all...

-Well, obviously I can erm...straighten things up a bit.

0:14:080:14:14

-That's a skull.

-Friend of mine.

0:14:140:14:17

When I say friend...

0:14:170:14:18

What do you think, then, Dr Watson?

0:14:180:14:21

There's another bedroom upstairs, if you'll be needing two bedrooms.

0:14:210:14:25

Of course we'll be needing two.

0:14:250:14:27

Oh, don't worry, there's all sorts round here. Mrs Turner next door's got (married ones).

0:14:270:14:33

Oh... Sherlock! The mess you've made.

0:14:350:14:39

I looked you up on the internet last night.

0:14:450:14:47

-Anything interesting?

-Found your website. The Science of Deduction.

0:14:500:14:54

What did you think?

0:14:540:14:55

You said you could identify a software designer by his tie and an airline pilot by his left thumb?

0:14:580:15:02

Yes.

0:15:020:15:03

And I can read your military career in your face and your leg,

0:15:030:15:06

and your brother's drinking habits on your mobile phone.

0:15:060:15:09

How?

0:15:090:15:10

What about these suicides then, Sherlock? I thought that'd be right up your street.

0:15:120:15:16

Three exactly the same.

0:15:160:15:19

Four.

0:15:190:15:20

-There's been a fourth. And there's something different this time.

-A fourth?

0:15:220:15:26

-Where?

-Brixton, Lauriston Gardens.

0:15:280:15:31

What's new about this one? You wouldn't have come to me otherwise.

0:15:310:15:34

-You know how they never leave notes?

-Yeah.

-This one did.

0:15:340:15:37

Will you come?

0:15:370:15:39

-Who's on forensics?

-Anderson.

0:15:390:15:41

He doesn't work well with me.

0:15:420:15:43

-Well, he won't be your assistant.

-I NEED an assistant.

0:15:430:15:46

-Will you come?

-Not in a police car, I'll be right behind.

0:15:460:15:49

Thank you.

0:15:490:15:51

Brilliant! Yes!

0:15:590:16:01

Four serial suicides, and now a note.

0:16:020:16:04

Oh, it's Christmas. Mrs Hudson, I'll be late. Might need some food.

0:16:040:16:08

I'm your landlady, dear, not your housekeeper.

0:16:080:16:11

Something cold will do. John, have a cup of tea, make yourself at home.

0:16:110:16:15

Don't wait up!

0:16:150:16:16

Look at him, dashing about...

0:16:160:16:19

My husband was just the same. But you're more the sitting-down type, I can tell.

0:16:190:16:26

I'll make you that cuppa, you rest your leg.

0:16:260:16:28

Damn my leg! Sorry, I'm so sorry -

0:16:280:16:31

It's just sometimes this bloody thing...

0:16:310:16:34

I understand, dear, I've got a hip.

0:16:340:16:36

-Cup of tea'd be lovely. Thank you.

-Just this once, dear, I'm not your housekeeper.

0:16:360:16:41

-Couple of biscuits too, if you've got 'em.

-Not your housekeeper!

0:16:410:16:44

You're a doctor.

0:16:480:16:49

In fact you're an Army doctor.

0:16:500:16:52

Yes.

0:16:530:16:55

Any good?

0:16:550:16:57

Very good.

0:16:580:16:59

Seen a lot of injuries, then. Violent deaths.

0:17:000:17:03

Well, yes.

0:17:030:17:05

Bit of trouble too, I bet?

0:17:050:17:06

Of course. Yes. Enough for a lifetime, far too much.

0:17:060:17:11

-Want to see some more?

-Oh, God, yes.

0:17:120:17:15

-Sorry Mrs Hudson, I'll skip the tea. Off out.

-Both of you?

0:17:180:17:22

Impossible suicides? Four of them?

0:17:230:17:25

No point sitting at home when there's finally something fun going on!

0:17:250:17:28

-Look at you, all happy. It's not decent.

-Who cares about decent?

0:17:280:17:31

The game, Mrs Hudson, is on!

0:17:310:17:34

Taxi!

0:17:400:17:41

OK, You've got questions...

0:18:180:18:19

Yeah, where are we going?

0:18:190:18:21

Crime scene. Next?

0:18:210:18:24

-Who are you, what do you do?

-What do you think?

0:18:240:18:26

-I'd say...private detective.

-But?

0:18:260:18:29

But the police don't go to private detectives.

0:18:290:18:31

I'm a consulting detective. Only one in the world, I invented the job.

0:18:320:18:36

-What does that mean?

-Means when the police are out of their depth, which is always,

0:18:360:18:40

-they consult me.

-The police don't consult amateurs.

0:18:400:18:44

When I met you for the first time yesterday, I said Afghanistan or Iraq. You looked surprised.

0:18:460:18:50

-Yes, how DID you know?

-I didn't know, I saw.

0:18:500:18:53

'Your haircut, the way you hold yourself says military.

0:18:530:18:56

-'But your conversation...'

-Bit different from my day.

0:18:560:18:59

..said trained at Barts - so Army doctor, obvious.

0:18:590:19:02

'Your face is tanned...

0:19:030:19:04

'but no tan above the wrists. You've been abroad, but not sunbathing.

0:19:040:19:08

'Your limp's really bad when you walk, but you don't ask for a chair when you stand -

0:19:080:19:12

'so it's at least partly psychosomatic.

0:19:120:19:14

'That says the original circumstances of the injury were traumatic -'

0:19:140:19:17

wounded in action then. Wounded in action, suntan - Afghanistan or Iraq.

0:19:170:19:22

You said I had a therapist.

0:19:220:19:24

You've got a psychosomatic limp, of course you've got a therapist.

0:19:240:19:27

-Then there's your brother.

-Mm?

-Your phone.

0:19:270:19:29

'It's expensive, e-mail enabled, MP3 player.'

0:19:290:19:31

And you're looking for a flatshare. You wouldn't buy this - it's a gift.

0:19:310:19:34

'Scratches. Not one, many over time -'

0:19:340:19:36

it's been in the same pocket as keys and coins.

0:19:360:19:38

You wouldn't treat your one luxury item like this,

0:19:380:19:40

so it's had a previous owner. Next bit's easy. You know it already.

0:19:400:19:44

The engraving?

0:19:440:19:45

Harry Watson. Clearly a family member who's given you his old phone.

0:19:450:19:48

Not your father, this is a young man's gadget.

0:19:480:19:50

Could be a cousin, but you're a war hero who can't find a place to live -

0:19:500:19:53

unlikely you've got an extended family, not one you're close to. So brother it is.

0:19:530:19:57

Now, who's Clara? Three kisses says it's a romantic attachment.

0:19:570:20:00

The expense of the phone says wife, not girlfriend.

0:20:000:20:04

Must have given it to him recently, it's only six months old.

0:20:040:20:06

Marriage in trouble then - six months on he's given it away.

0:20:060:20:09

If she'd left HIM, he would have kept it. Sentiment.

0:20:090:20:11

No, he wanted rid of it. He left HER.

0:20:110:20:13

He gave the phone to you, so he wants you to stay in touch.

0:20:130:20:15

You're looking for cheap accommodation, but you're not going to your brother for help -

0:20:150:20:20

that says you've got problems with him. Maybe you liked his wife, or don't like his drinking.

0:20:200:20:24

How can you possibly know about the drinking?

0:20:240:20:27

Shot in the dark. Good one, though.

0:20:270:20:29

Power connection - tiny little scuff marks round it.

0:20:290:20:32

Every night he plugs it in but his hands are shaking.

0:20:320:20:34

You never see those marks on a sober man's phone,

0:20:340:20:36

-never see a drunk's without them. There you go, you were right.

-I was right? Right about what?

0:20:360:20:41

The police don't consult amateurs.

0:20:410:20:43

That...was amazing.

0:20:460:20:48

-Do you think so?

-Of course it was. It was extraordinary, it was quite extraordinary.

0:20:520:20:56

-That's not what people normally say.

-What do people normally say?

0:20:560:20:59

Piss off!

0:20:590:21:00

Did I get anything wrong?

0:21:120:21:14

Harry and me don't get on, never have,

0:21:150:21:17

Clara and Harry split up three months ago

0:21:170:21:21

and they're getting a divorce,

0:21:210:21:23

and Harry is a drinker.

0:21:230:21:24

Spot on, then. I didn't expect to be right about everything.

0:21:240:21:27

Harry's short for Harriet.

0:21:270:21:29

-Harry's your sister.

-Look, what exactly am I supposed to be doing here?

-Sister!

0:21:300:21:34

-No - seriously, what am I doing here?

-There's always something.

0:21:340:21:37

-Hello, freak!

-I'm here to see Detective Inspector Lestrade.

0:21:370:21:41

Why?

0:21:410:21:42

I was invited.

0:21:420:21:44

-Why?

-I think he wants me to take a look.

0:21:440:21:46

-Well, you know what I think, don't you?

-Always Sally.

0:21:460:21:49

I even know you didn't make it home last night.

0:21:490:21:52

-I don't... Who's this?

-Colleague of mine, Dr Watson.

0:21:520:21:55

Dr Watson, Sergeant Sally Donovan.

0:21:550:21:57

Old friend.

0:21:570:21:58

A colleague(?) How do YOU get a colleague?

0:21:580:22:02

Did he follow you home?

0:22:020:22:03

-Would it be better if I just waited...

-No.

0:22:030:22:06

Freak's here. Bringing him in.

0:22:070:22:09

Ah, Anderson. Here we are again.

0:22:180:22:21

It's a crime scene. I don't want it contaminated. Are we clear on that?

0:22:210:22:25

Quite clear.

0:22:250:22:27

And is your wife away for long?

0:22:270:22:29

Oh, don't pretend you worked that out. Somebody told you that.

0:22:290:22:31

Your deodorant told me that.

0:22:310:22:33

My deodorant?

0:22:330:22:34

-It's for men.

-Well, of course it's for men - I'm wearing it.

0:22:340:22:38

So's Sergeant Donovan.

0:22:380:22:39

Ooh... I think it just vaporised. May I go in?

0:22:410:22:43

Whatever you're trying to imply...

0:22:430:22:45

I'm not implying anything. I'm sure Sally came round for a nice little chat, and just happened to stay over.

0:22:450:22:51

And I assume she scrubbed your floors, going by the state of her knees.

0:22:510:22:54

You'll need to wear one of these.

0:23:050:23:07

Who's this?

0:23:070:23:08

He's with me.

0:23:080:23:10

-But who is he?

-I said he's with me.

0:23:100:23:13

Aren't you going to put one on?

0:23:150:23:17

-So where are we?

-Upstairs.

0:23:200:23:23

I can give you two minutes.

0:23:300:23:32

May need longer.

0:23:320:23:35

Her name's Jennifer Wilson according to her credit cards,

0:23:350:23:37

we're running them now for contact details.

0:23:370:23:40

Hasn't been here long.

0:23:400:23:42

Some kids found her.

0:23:420:23:43

Shut up.

0:24:160:24:19

-I didn't say anything.

-You were thinking. It's annoying.

0:24:190:24:21

Got anything?

0:25:340:25:36

Not much.

0:25:360:25:38

She's German.

0:25:380:25:40

Rache. It's German for revenge. She could be trying to tell us something...

0:25:400:25:43

Yes, thank you for your input.

0:25:430:25:45

-So she's German?

-Of course she's not. She's from out of town though.

0:25:450:25:49

Intended to stay in London for one night

0:25:490:25:50

before returning home to Cardiff. So far, so obvious.

0:25:500:25:54

-Sorry - obvious?

-What about the message though?

0:25:540:25:56

Dr Watson, what do you think?

0:25:560:25:57

-Of the message?

-Of the body. You're a medical man.

0:25:570:25:59

We have a whole team right outside.

0:25:590:26:01

-They won't work with me.

-I'm breaking every rule letting YOU in here...

0:26:010:26:04

Yes...because you need me.

0:26:040:26:07

Yes, I do.

0:26:080:26:10

God help me.

0:26:100:26:11

-Dr Watson!

-Hm?

0:26:110:26:13

Oh, do as he says. Help yourself.

0:26:140:26:17

Anderson, keep everyone out for a couple of minutes...

0:26:190:26:23

-Well?

-What am I doing here?

0:26:240:26:26

-Helping me make a point.

-I'm supposed to be helping you pay the rent.

-This is more fun.

0:26:260:26:30

Fun? There's a woman lying dead.

0:26:300:26:32

Perfectly sound analysis, but I WAS hoping you'd go deeper.

0:26:320:26:35

Yeah...

0:26:540:26:56

Asphyxiation, probably. Passed out, choked on her own vomit.

0:26:560:26:59

Can't smell any alcohol on her.

0:26:590:27:01

It could have been a seizure. Possibly drugs.

0:27:010:27:03

You know what it was, you've read the papers.

0:27:030:27:05

Well, she's one of the suicides. The fourth...?

0:27:050:27:07

Sherlock - two minutes, I said, I need anything you got.

0:27:070:27:10

Victim is in her late 30s. Professional person, going by her clothes -

0:27:100:27:14

I'm guessing the media, going by the frankly alarming shade of pink.

0:27:140:27:17

Travelled from Cardiff today intending to stay in London one night from the size of her suitcase.

0:27:170:27:22

-Suitcase?

-Yes. She's been married at least ten years, but not happily.

0:27:220:27:25

She's had a string of lovers but none of them knew she was married.

0:27:250:27:28

Oh, for God's sake, if you're just making this up...

0:27:280:27:30

Her wedding ring. Ten years old at least.

0:27:300:27:33

The rest of her jewellery has been regularly cleaned, but not her wedding ring.

0:27:330:27:38

The inside is shinier than the outside.

0:27:380:27:40

The only polishing it gets is when she works it off her finger.

0:27:400:27:43

It's not for work, look at her nails. She doesn't work with her hands so who DOES she remove her rings for?

0:27:430:27:48

Not ONE lover, she'd never sustain the fiction of being single for that long

0:27:480:27:52

-so more likely a string of them.

-Brilliant.

0:27:520:27:54

-Sorry.

-Cardiff?

0:27:540:27:56

-It's obvious, isn't it?

-It's not obvious to me.

0:27:560:27:59

Dear God, what is it like in your funny little brains, it must be so boring. Her coat -

0:28:000:28:05

it's slightly damp, she's been in heavy rain the last few hours -

0:28:050:28:07

no rain anywhere in London in that time.

0:28:070:28:09

Under her coat collar is damp too. She's turned it up against the wind.

0:28:090:28:13

She's got an umbrella in her pocket but it's dry and unused.

0:28:130:28:15

Not just wind, strong wind - too strong to use her umbrella.

0:28:150:28:18

We know from her suitcase that she was intending to stay overnight

0:28:180:28:21

but she can't have travelled more than two or three hours because her coat still hasn't dried.

0:28:210:28:25

So - where has there been heavy rain and strong wind within the radius of that travel time?

0:28:250:28:29

Cardiff.

0:28:290:28:31

-Fantastic.

-Do you know you do that out loud?

0:28:310:28:33

-Sorry, I'll shut up.

-No, it's...fine.

0:28:330:28:36

-Why do you keep saying suitcase?

-Yes, where is it?

0:28:360:28:39

-She must have had a phone or an organiser. Find out who Rachel is.

-She was writing Rachel?

0:28:390:28:44

No, she was leaving an angry note in German - of course she was writing Rachel, no other word it can be.

0:28:440:28:48

-Why did she wait until she was dying to write it?

-How do you know she had a suitcase?

0:28:480:28:52

Tiny splash marks on her right heel and calf not present on the left.

0:28:520:28:55

She was dragging a wheeled suitcase behind her with her right hand, by that splash pattern.

0:28:550:29:00

Smallish case, going by the spread.

0:29:000:29:02

Case that size, woman this clothes-conscious -

0:29:020:29:04

could only be an overnight bag so we know she was staying one night.

0:29:040:29:07

Where is it, what have you done with it?

0:29:070:29:08

There wasn't a case.

0:29:080:29:10

-Say that again.

-There wasn't a case. There was never any suitcase.

0:29:130:29:16

Suitcase! Did anyone find a suitcase? Was there a suitcase in this house?

0:29:160:29:20

Sir, there was no case!

0:29:200:29:22

But they take the poison themselves, swallow the pills.

0:29:220:29:25

-There are clear signs, even you lot couldn't miss them.

-Right, thanks. And...?

0:29:250:29:28

It's murder, all of them. I don't know how.

0:29:290:29:32

But they're not suicides, they're serial killings.

0:29:320:29:34

We've got a serial killer. There's always something to look forward to.

0:29:340:29:37

-Why are you saying that?

-Her case! Come on, where is her case?

0:29:370:29:41

Did she eat it(?) Someone else was here, and they took her case.

0:29:410:29:45

So the killer must have driven here. Forgot the case was in the car.

0:29:450:29:48

She could have checked into a hotel, left it there.

0:29:480:29:51

No, look at her hair. She colour-coordinates her lipstick and her shoes.

0:29:510:29:55

She'd never have left any hotel with her hair still looking...

0:29:550:29:58

Oh...

0:29:580:30:00

Oh!

0:30:010:30:02

-Sherlock?

-What is it, what?

0:30:020:30:04

Serial killers, always hard. You have to wait for them to make a mistake.

0:30:040:30:08

-We can't just wait!

-Oh, we're done waiting. Look at her, really look!

0:30:080:30:11

Houston, we have a mistake. Get on to Cardiff.

0:30:110:30:13

Find out who Jennifer Wilson's family and friends were. Find Rachel!

0:30:130:30:16

Of course, yeah - but what mistake?!

0:30:160:30:18

Pink!

0:30:200:30:21

-ANDERSON:

-Let's get on with it...

0:30:230:30:25

-He's gone.

-Who, Sherlock Holmes?

0:31:030:31:04

Yeah, he just took off. He does that.

0:31:040:31:07

-Is he coming back?

-Didn't look like it.

0:31:070:31:09

Right.

0:31:100:31:12

Right...

0:31:130:31:14

Yes. Sorry, where am I?

0:31:150:31:17

Brixton.

0:31:180:31:20

Do you know where I could get a cab?

0:31:210:31:23

It's just er...

0:31:230:31:25

well -

0:31:250:31:27

my leg.

0:31:270:31:28

Er...

0:31:280:31:30

..try the main road.

0:31:310:31:33

Thanks.

0:31:330:31:34

But you're not his friend.

0:31:340:31:37

He doesn't HAVE friends.

0:31:370:31:39

So who are you?

0:31:400:31:42

I'm...I'm nobody. I just met him.

0:31:420:31:45

OK, bit of advice then. Stay away from that guy.

0:31:450:31:47

Why?

0:31:470:31:49

You know why he's here?

0:31:510:31:52

He's not paid or anything.

0:31:540:31:56

He likes it. He gets off on it.

0:31:560:31:59

The weirder the crime, the more he gets off. And you know what...?

0:32:000:32:04

One day just showing up won't be enough.

0:32:040:32:06

One day we'll be standing round a body and he'll be the one that put it there.

0:32:060:32:10

-Why would he do that?

-Because he's a psychopath.

0:32:100:32:13

Psychopaths get bored.

0:32:130:32:14

-LESTRADE:

-Donovan!

-Coming.

0:32:150:32:17

Stay away from Sherlock Holmes.

I'm John.

0:35:010:35:03

Yes. I know.

0:35:030:35:05

Any point in asking... where I'm going?

None at all...

John.

0:35:160:35:17

OK.

0:35:180:35:20

Have a seat, John.

0:35:390:35:41

You know, I've got a phone.

0:35:450:35:47

I mean, very clever and all that,

0:35:480:35:51

but er...

0:35:510:35:53

you could just phone me.

0:35:530:35:55

On my phone.

0:35:560:35:57

When one is avoiding the attention of Sherlock Holmes, one learns to be discreet, hence this place.

0:36:000:36:05

Your leg must be hurting you. Sit down.

0:36:050:36:08

I don't want to sit down.

0:36:080:36:10

You don't seem very afraid.

0:36:110:36:13

You don't seem very frightening.

0:36:130:36:14

-HE CHUCKLES

-Yes...

0:36:140:36:17

The bravery of the soldier.

0:36:170:36:20

Bravery is by far the kindest word for stupidity, don't you think?

0:36:200:36:24

What is your connection to Sherlock Holmes?

0:36:240:36:26

I don't have one. I barely know him, I met him...yesterday.

0:36:270:36:33

Mmm, and since yesterday you've moved in with him and now you're solving crimes together.

0:36:330:36:37

Might we expect a happy announcement by the end of the week?

0:36:370:36:40

-Who are you?

-An interested party.

0:36:400:36:43

Interested in Sherlock? Why?

0:36:430:36:45

I'm guessing you're not friends.

0:36:450:36:47

You've met him. How many friends do you imagine he has?

0:36:470:36:50

-I am the closest thing to a friend that Sherlock Holmes is capable of having.

-And what's that?

0:36:510:36:56

-An enemy.

-An enemy?

0:36:560:36:58

In HIS mind, certainly.

0:36:580:36:59

If you were to ask him, he'd probably say his arch-enemy.

0:36:590:37:03

He does love to be dramatic.

0:37:030:37:05

Well, thank God YOU'RE above all that.

Not distracting me at all.

0:37:170:37:18

Do you plan to continue your association with Sherlock Holmes?

0:37:180:37:21

I could be wrong...

0:37:210:37:22

but I think that's none of your business.

0:37:220:37:25

-It could be.

-It really couldn't.

pay you a meaningful sum of money on a regular basis to ease your way.

0:37:390:37:44

Why?

0:37:440:37:45

Because you're not a wealthy man.

0:37:450:37:47

In exchange for what?

0:37:470:37:48

Information.

0:37:490:37:51

Nothing indiscreet. Nothing you'd feel...uncomfortable with.

0:37:510:37:54

-Just tell me what he's up to.

-Why?

0:37:540:37:57

I worry about him. Constantly.

0:37:580:38:02

That's nice of you.

0:38:020:38:03

But I would prefer for various reasons that my concern go unmentioned,

0:38:030:38:08

we have what you might call a... difficult relationship.

0:38:080:38:12

TEXT MESSAGE ALERT

0:38:120:38:13

You're very loyal VERY quickly.

0:38:220:38:24

No, I'm not, I'm just not interested.

0:38:240:38:27

"Trust issues"...it says here.

0:38:320:38:34

What's that?

0:38:380:38:39

Could it be that you've decided to trust Sherlock Holmes of all people?

0:38:390:38:43

-Who says I trust him?

-You don't seem the kind to make friends easily.

0:38:430:38:46

Are we done?

0:38:460:38:48

You tell me.

0:38:490:38:50

I imagine people have already warned you to stay away from him,

0:38:570:39:00

but I can see from your left hand that's not going to happen.

0:39:000:39:03

-My what?

-Show me.

0:39:060:39:09

Don't...

0:39:200:39:21

-Remarkable.

-What is?

0:39:290:39:31

Most people...blunder round this city, and all they see are streets and shops and cars.

0:39:310:39:38

When you walk with Sherlock Holmes, you see the battlefield.

0:39:380:39:41

You've seen it already. Haven't you?

0:39:410:39:43

What's wrong with my hand?

0:39:430:39:45

You have an intermittent tremor in your left hand.

0:39:450:39:49

Your therapist thinks it's post-traumatic stress disorder.

0:39:490:39:52

She thinks you're haunted by memories of your military service.

0:39:520:39:55

Who the hell are you?

0:39:550:39:57

-How do you know that?

-Fire her. She's got it the wrong way round.

0:39:580:40:02

You're under stress right now and your hand is perfectly steady.

0:40:020:40:06

You're not haunted by the war, Dr Watson...

0:40:070:40:10

You miss it.

0:40:110:40:13

Welcome back.

0:40:150:40:17

TEXT MESSAGE ALERT

0:40:220:40:23

Time to choose a side, Dr Watson.

0:40:230:40:26

I'm to take you home.

0:40:360:40:38

Address?

0:40:470:40:49

Er, Baker Street.

0:40:490:40:51

221B Baker Street.

0:40:510:40:54

But I need to stop off somewhere first.

0:40:550:40:57

Listen, your boss. Any chance you could not tell him this is where I went?

0:41:240:41:29

-Sure.

-You've told him already, haven't you?

0:41:290:41:31

Yeah.

0:41:310:41:33

Hey erm... do you ever get any free time?

0:41:360:41:40

-SHE CHUCKLES

-Oh, yeah. Lots.

0:41:400:41:42

-Bye...

-OK.

0:41:480:41:50

HE EXHALES SLOWLY

0:42:120:42:15

What are you doing?

0:42:180:42:19

Nicotine patch.

0:42:200:42:22

Helps me think.

0:42:220:42:24

Impossible to sustain a smoking habit in London these days.

0:42:240:42:28

Bad news for brain work.

0:42:280:42:30

-It's good news for breathing.

-Oh... Breathing! Breathing's boring.

0:42:300:42:33

Is that...three patches?

0:42:330:42:34

It's a three-patch problem.

0:42:340:42:36

Well...?

0:42:400:42:42

You asked me to come, I'm assuming it's important.

0:42:440:42:47

Oh - yeah, of course. Can I borrow your phone?

0:42:480:42:50

-My phone?

-Always a chance that my number will be recognised. It's on the website.

0:42:510:42:55

-Mrs Hudson's got a phone.

-Yeah, she's downstairs.

0:42:550:42:57

-I tried shouting but she didn't hear.

-I WAS the other side of London...

0:42:570:43:00

There was no hurry.

0:43:000:43:02

Here...

0:43:040:43:06

So what's this about - the case?

0:43:110:43:13

-Her case...

-HER case?

-Her suitcase, yes, obviously.

0:43:130:43:17

The murderer took her suitcase, first big mistake.

0:43:170:43:21

OK, he took her case. So?

0:43:210:43:22

It's no use, there's no other way. We'll have to risk it.

0:43:220:43:26

On my desk there's a number. I want you to send a text.

0:43:270:43:29

You've brought me here... to send a text.

0:43:310:43:34

Text, yes. The number on my desk.

0:43:340:43:36

-What's wrong?

-Just met a friend of yours.

0:43:480:43:50

-A friend?

-An enemy.

0:43:500:43:52

Oh. Which one?

0:43:520:43:54

Well, your arch-enemy, according to him. Do people have arch-enemies?

0:43:550:43:59

Did he offer you money to spy on me?

0:44:010:44:03

-Yes.

-Did you take it?

0:44:040:44:06

-No.

-Pity, we could have split the fee. Think it through next time.

0:44:060:44:09

-Who is he?

-The most dangerous man you've ever met, and not my problem right now.

0:44:100:44:14

On my desk, the number!

0:44:140:44:16

Jennifer Wilson. That was...

0:44:220:44:25

Hang on. Wasn't that the dead woman?

0:44:250:44:27

Yes. That's not important. Just enter the number.

0:44:270:44:30

-Are you doing it?

-Yes.

-Have you done it?

0:44:300:44:32

Yeah - hang on!

0:44:320:44:35

These words exactly.

0:44:350:44:37

"What happened at Lauriston Gardens?

0:44:370:44:41

"I must have blacked out.

0:44:410:44:43

"22 Northumberland Street,

0:44:430:44:46

-please come."

-You blacked out?

0:44:460:44:47

What? No... No!

0:44:470:44:50

Type and send it. Quickly.

0:44:510:44:53

-Have you sent it?

-What's the address?

0:44:570:45:00

22 Northumberland Street. Hurry up!

0:45:000:45:02

That's...

0:45:090:45:10

That's the pink lady's case, that's Jennifer Wilson's case.

0:45:110:45:14

Yes, obviously.

0:45:140:45:16

-Oh, perhaps I should mention - I didn't kill her.

-I never said you did.

0:45:180:45:22

Why not? Given that text and the fact I have her case it's a perfectly logical assumption.

0:45:220:45:27

Do people usually assume you're the murderer?

0:45:270:45:29

Now and then, yes.

0:45:300:45:32

OK...

0:45:330:45:34

-How did you get this?

-By looking.

0:45:360:45:38

-Where?

-The killer must have driven her to Lauriston Gardens.

0:45:380:45:41

He could only keep her case by accident if it was in the car.

0:45:410:45:44

Nobody could be seen with this case without drawing attention -

0:45:440:45:47

particularly a man, which is statistically more likely.

0:45:470:45:50

So obviously he'd feel compelled to get rid of it.

0:45:500:45:52

Wouldn't have taken him more than five minutes to realise his mistake.

0:45:520:45:55

I checked every backstreet wide enough for a car five minutes from Lauriston Gardens,

0:45:550:46:00

'and anywhere you could dispose of a bulky object without being observed.

0:46:000:46:05

'Took me less than an hour to find the right skip.'

0:46:050:46:08

Pink. You got all that because you realised the case would be pink?

0:46:090:46:12

-It had to be pink, obviously.

-Why didn't I think of that(?)

0:46:120:46:15

Because you're an idiot.

0:46:150:46:16

No, no, no, don't look like that. Practically everyone is.

0:46:160:46:19

Now, look. Do you see what's missing?

0:46:190:46:22

From the case? How could I?

0:46:220:46:23

Her phone. Where's her mobile phone?

0:46:240:46:25

There was no phone on the body, there's no phone in the case.

0:46:250:46:28

We know she had one. You just texted it.

0:46:280:46:30

Maybe she left it at home.

0:46:300:46:31

She has a string of lovers and she's careful about it. She never leaves her phone at home.

0:46:310:46:36

Er...

0:46:360:46:38

Why did I just send that text?

0:46:390:46:41

Well, the question is where is her phone NOW?

0:46:410:46:44

-She could have lost it.

-Yes, or?

0:46:440:46:47

The murderer... You think the murderer has the phone?

0:46:480:46:50

Maybe she...left it when she left her case. Maybe he took it from her for some reason.

0:46:510:46:57

Either way, the balance of probability is the murderer has her phone.

0:46:580:47:01

Sorry...what are we doing - did I just text a murderer? What good will that do?

0:47:010:47:06

TEXT MESSAGE ALERT

0:47:060:47:07

A few hours after his last victim,

0:47:080:47:11

and now he receives a text that can only be from her.

0:47:110:47:14

If somebody had just found that phone they'd ignore a text like that, but the murderer...

0:47:160:47:21

would panic.

0:47:210:47:23

-Have you talked to the police?

-Four people are dead, there isn't time.

0:47:250:47:28

So why are you talking to ME?

0:47:280:47:30

Mrs Hudson took my skull.

0:47:300:47:32

So I'm basically filling in for your skull?

0:47:330:47:35

Relax, you're doing fine.

0:47:350:47:37

-Well?

-Well, what?

-Well - you could just sit there and...watch telly.

0:47:370:47:41

-What, you want me to come with you?

-I like company when I go out, and I think better when I talk aloud.

0:47:410:47:46

The skull just attracts attention, so...

0:47:460:47:48

-Problem?

-Yeah, Sergeant Donovan.

0:47:480:47:51

What about her?

0:47:510:47:53

She said...

0:47:530:47:54

you get off on this. You enjoy it.

0:47:540:47:56

And I said "dangerous", and here you are.

0:47:570:48:01

Damn it!

0:48:040:48:06

-Where are we going?

-Northumberland Street's a five-minute walk from here.

0:48:150:48:18

-You think he's stupid enough to go there?

-No - I think he's brilliant enough.

0:48:180:48:22

I love the brilliant ones. They're all so desperate to get caught.

0:48:220:48:25

-Why?

-Appreciation!

0:48:250:48:27

Applause! At long last the spotlight.

0:48:270:48:29

-That's the frailty of genius, John, it needs an audience.

-Yeah.

0:48:290:48:33

This is his hunting ground. Right here in the heart of the city.

0:48:330:48:38

Now that we know his victims were abducted, that changes everything.

0:48:380:48:41

Because all of his victims disappeared from busy streets,

0:48:410:48:44

crowded places, but nobody saw them go.

0:48:440:48:46

Think! Who do we trust, even though we don't know them?

0:48:470:48:50

Who passes unnoticed wherever they go?

0:48:500:48:54

Who hunts in the middle of a crowd?

0:48:540:48:56

Don't know. Who?

0:48:560:48:58

Haven't the faintest. Hungry?

0:48:580:49:00

Thank you, Billy.

0:49:040:49:05

22 Northumberland Street.

0:49:100:49:11

Keep your eyes on it.

0:49:110:49:14

He's not just going to ring the doorbell. He'd need to be mad.

0:49:140:49:17

He HAS killed four people.

0:49:170:49:19

OK.

0:49:190:49:21

Sherlock!

0:49:220:49:24

Anything on the menu, whatever you want, free.

0:49:240:49:26

On the house, for you and for your date.

0:49:260:49:29

-Do you want to eat?

-I'm not his date.

0:49:290:49:30

This man got me off a murder charge.

0:49:300:49:33

This is Angelo. Three years ago I proved to Lestrade at the time of a particularly vicious triple murder

0:49:330:49:38

that Angelo was elsewhere, house-breaking.

0:49:380:49:40

-He cleared my name.

-I cleared it a bit. Anything happening opposite?

0:49:400:49:44

Nothing.

0:49:440:49:45

-But for this man, I'd have gone to prison.

-You did go to prison.

0:49:450:49:48

I'll get a candle for the table. It's more romantic.

0:49:480:49:51

I'm not his date!

0:49:510:49:52

You may as well eat. We might have a long wait.

0:49:540:49:57

Thanks.

0:49:580:50:00

People don't have arch-enemies.

0:50:070:50:09

-I'm sorry?

-In real life.

0:50:100:50:12

There are no arch-enemies in real life. Doesn't happen.

0:50:130:50:15

Doesn't it? Sounds a bit dull.

0:50:150:50:17

So who did I meet?

0:50:170:50:19

What do real people have, then, in their..."real lives"?

0:50:190:50:23

Friends?

0:50:240:50:26

People they know, people they like, people they don't like...

0:50:260:50:30

-Girlfriends, boyfriends.

-Yes, well, as I was saying - dull.

0:50:300:50:34

You don't have a girlfriend, then.

0:50:340:50:36

Girlfriend? No, not really my area.

0:50:360:50:39

Mm.

0:50:390:50:40

Oh, right.

0:50:410:50:43

Do you have a...boyfriend? Which is fine, by the way.

0:50:440:50:46

I know it's fine.

0:50:460:50:48

-So you've got a boyfriend then.

-No.

0:50:490:50:51

Right. OK.

0:50:510:50:53

You're unattached. Like me.

0:50:550:50:57

Fine. Good.

0:50:580:51:01

John, erm...

0:51:080:51:10

I think you should know that I consider myself married to my work,

0:51:100:51:13

-and while I'm flattered, I'm really not looking for any...

-No,

0:51:130:51:16

I'm...not asking. No.

0:51:160:51:19

I'm just saying, it's all fine.

0:51:200:51:23

TAXI OUTSIDE Good.

0:51:240:51:26

Thank you.

0:51:280:51:29

Look across the street. Taxi. It's stopped.

0:51:310:51:34

Nobody getting in, and nobody getting out.

0:51:340:51:36

Why a taxi?

0:51:370:51:38

-Oh, that's clever. Is it clever? Why is it clever?

-That's him.

0:51:390:51:42

Don't stare.

0:51:430:51:44

-You're staring.

-We can't both stare.

0:51:440:51:46

CAR HORN

0:52:080:52:10

Sorry...

0:52:110:52:12

-I've got the cab number.

-Good for you.

0:52:130:52:15

Right turn, one way, roadworks, traffic lights, bus lane,

0:52:160:52:19

pedestrian crossing, left turn only, traffic lights.

0:52:190:52:21

Sorry.

0:52:260:52:28

TYRES SQUEAL

0:52:310:52:33

Come on, John...

0:52:380:52:39

Come on, John. We're losing him!

0:52:580:53:00

This way.

0:53:290:53:31

No - THIS way!

0:53:320:53:33

Sorry...

0:53:330:53:35

Police! Open her up.

0:54:000:54:03

SHERLOCK PANTS No...

0:54:040:54:07

Teeth, tan. What - Californian...?

0:54:070:54:09

LA, Santa Monica. Just arrived.

0:54:100:54:13

-How could you possibly know that?

-The luggage.

0:54:130:54:15

Probably your first trip to London, right?

0:54:170:54:19

Going by your final destination and the cabbie's route.

0:54:190:54:22

Sorry - are you guys the police?

0:54:220:54:24

Yeah. Everything all right?

0:54:240:54:26

Yeah.

0:54:260:54:28

Welcome to London.

0:54:290:54:31

Er, any problems - just let us know.

0:54:330:54:35

-Basically just a cab that happened to slow down.

-Basically.

0:54:390:54:42

-Not the murderer.

-Not the murderer, no.

0:54:420:54:44

Wrong country, good alibi.

0:54:440:54:46

-As they go.

-Hey, where did you get this?

0:54:460:54:49

-Detective Inspector Lestrade?

-Yeah.

0:54:500:54:52

I pickpocket him when he's annoying.

0:54:520:54:54

You can keep that one, I've got plenty at the flat.

0:54:540:54:56

-What?

-Nothing, just..."Welcome to London".

0:54:590:55:02

HE SNIGGERS

0:55:020:55:04

-Got your breath back?

-Ready when you are.

0:55:060:55:08

-JOHN PANTS

-OK...

0:55:140:55:17

That was ridiculous.

0:55:180:55:19

That was the most ridiculous thing...I've ever done.

0:55:190:55:23

And you invaded Afghanistan. THEY LAUGH

0:55:230:55:26

That wasn't just me.

0:55:270:55:29

Why aren't we back at the restaurant?

0:55:290:55:31

They can keep an eye out.

0:55:310:55:33

It was a long shot anyway.

0:55:330:55:35

So what were we doing there?

0:55:350:55:37

Oh, just passing the time.

0:55:400:55:42

And proving a point.

0:55:430:55:44

-What point?

-You.

0:55:440:55:46

Mrs Hudson! Dr Watson WILL take the room upstairs.

0:55:460:55:50

Says who?

0:55:500:55:51

Says the man at the door.

0:55:510:55:53

KNOCKING

0:55:530:55:54

Sherlock texted me. He said you forgot this.

0:56:040:56:08

Ah...

0:56:090:56:10

Er, thank you.

0:56:120:56:13

Thank you.

0:56:130:56:14

Sherlock, what have you done?

0:56:150:56:17

-Mrs Hudson?

-Upstairs.

0:56:170:56:20

-What are you doing?

-Well, I knew you'd find the case, I'm not stupid.

0:56:250:56:28

-You can't just break into my flat.

-You can't withhold evidence - and I didn't break in.

0:56:280:56:33

Well, what do you call this then?

0:56:330:56:35

-It's a drugs bust.

-Seriously? This guy - a junkie?

0:56:350:56:39

-Have you met him?

-John...

0:56:390:56:41

You could search this flat all day, you wouldn't find anything you could call recreational.

0:56:410:56:45

-John, you probably want to shut up now.

-But come on...

0:56:450:56:47

-No...

-What?

0:56:490:56:51

-You?

-Shut up! I'm not your sniffer dog.

0:56:510:56:54

No, Anderson's my sniffer dog.

0:56:540:56:56

Anderson, what are YOU doing here on a drugs bust?

0:56:580:57:00

-Oh, I volunteered.

-They all did. They're not strictly speaking ON the drug squad, but they're very keen.

0:57:000:57:05

-Are these human eyes?

-Put those back!

0:57:050:57:07

-They were in the microwave.

-It's an experiment.

0:57:070:57:09

Keep looking, guys.

0:57:090:57:11

Or you could help us properly and I'll stand them down.

0:57:110:57:13

-This is childish.

-Well, I'm dealing with a child.

0:57:130:57:15

Sherlock, this is our case. I'm letting you in, but you do not go off on your own.

0:57:150:57:19

-Clear?

-What - so you set up a pretend drugs bust to bully me?

0:57:190:57:23

-It stops being pretend if we find anything.

-I am clean!

0:57:230:57:27

Is your flat...? All of it?

0:57:270:57:28

Don't even smoke.

0:57:280:57:31

Neither do I.

0:57:310:57:33

So let's work together.

0:57:350:57:37

-We've found Rachel.

-Who is she?

0:57:370:57:39

Jennifer Wilson's only daughter.

0:57:390:57:41

Her daughter?

0:57:410:57:43

Why would she write her daughter's name? Why?

0:57:430:57:45

Never mind that, we found the case.

0:57:450:57:48

According to SOMEONE the murderer has the case, and we found it in the hands of our favourite psychopath.

0:57:480:57:53

I'm a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research.

0:57:530:57:56

You need to bring Rachel in and I need to question her.

0:57:560:57:58

-She's dead.

-Excellent. How, when and why? Is there a connection? There has to be.

0:57:580:58:02

Well, I doubt it, since she's been dead for 14 years. Technically she was never alive.

0:58:020:58:07

Rachel was Jennifer Wilson's stillborn daughter, 14 years ago.

0:58:070:58:12

No, that's...

0:58:120:58:13

..that's not right. How...

0:58:140:58:16

Why would she do that? Why?

0:58:160:58:18

Why would she think of her daughter in her last moments? Yup - sociopath, I'm seeing it now.

0:58:180:58:22

She didn't think about her daughter.

0:58:220:58:24

She scratched her name on the floor with her fingernails. She was dying.

0:58:240:58:28

It took effort, it would have hurt.

0:58:280:58:30

You said that the victims all took the poison themselves, that he MAKES them take it -

0:58:310:58:35

well, maybe he...I don't know, talks to them. Maybe he used the death of her daughter somehow.

0:58:350:58:40

Yeah, but that was ages ago. Why would she still be upset?

0:58:400:58:44

Not good?

0:58:470:58:49

Bit not good, yeah.

0:58:490:58:50

If you were dying... If you'd been murdered - in your very last few seconds what would you say?

0:58:500:58:54

-"Please, God, let me live."

-Use your imagination!

0:58:540:58:57

I don't have to.

0:58:570:58:59

Yeah, but if you were clever... Jennifer Wilson running all those lovers - she WAS clever.

0:59:000:59:04

She's trying to tell us something.

0:59:040:59:06

Isn't the doorbell working? Your taxi's here, Sherlock.

0:59:060:59:09

-I didn't order a taxi. Go away.

-Oh, dear. They're making such a mess. What are they looking for?

0:59:090:59:13

It's a drugs bust, Mrs Hudson.

0:59:130:59:15

But they're just for my hip. They're herbal soothers...

0:59:150:59:18

Shut up, everybody! Don't speak, don't breathe. I'm trying to think.

0:59:180:59:21

Anderson, face the other way. You're putting me off.

0:59:210:59:23

-What? My FACE is(?)

-Everybody quiet and still.

0:59:230:59:26

-Anderson, turn your back.

-Oh, for God's sake!

0:59:260:59:28

Your back, now, please!

0:59:280:59:30

-Come on, think. Quick!

-What about your taxi?

0:59:300:59:32

MRS HUDSON!

0:59:320:59:33

Oh...

0:59:360:59:38

Ah!

0:59:380:59:40

She was clever. Clever, yes!

0:59:400:59:43

She's cleverer than you lot and she's dead. Do you see, do you get it?

0:59:430:59:48

She didn't lose her phone, she never lost it. She PLANTED it on him.

0:59:480:59:51

When she got out of the car, she knew that she was going to her death.

0:59:510:59:54

-She left the phone in order to lead us to her killer.

-But how?

0:59:540:59:59

What do you mean, how?

1:00:001:00:01

Rachel!

1:00:011:00:03

Don't you see? Rachel!

1:00:041:00:06

Oh...

1:00:091:00:10

Look at you lot. You're all so vacant.

1:00:101:00:12

Is it nice not being me? It must be so relaxing.

1:00:121:00:15

Rachel is not a name.

1:00:151:00:16

-Then what is it?

-John - on the luggage, there's a label.

1:00:161:00:19

E-mail address.

1:00:191:00:21

Er, [email protected]

1:00:221:00:26

She didn't have a laptop, which means she did her business on her phone. A smartphone, it's e-mail enabled.

1:00:261:00:31

So there was a website for her account.

1:00:311:00:33

The username is her e-mail address - and all together, the password is?

1:00:331:00:36

-Rachel.

-So we can read her e-mails. So what?

1:00:361:00:39

Anderson, don't talk out loud. You lower the IQ of the whole street.

1:00:391:00:42

We can do much more than that. It's a smartphone, it's got GPS.

1:00:421:00:45

Which means if you lose it you can locate it online. She's leading us directly to the man who killed her.

1:00:451:00:50

-Unless he got rid of it.

-We know he didn't.

1:00:501:00:52

-Come on, come on. Quickly!

-Sherlock, dear. This taxi driver...

1:00:521:00:56

Mrs Hudson, isn't it time for your evening soother?

1:00:561:00:59

Get vehicles, get a helicopter. This phone battery won't last for ever.

1:01:001:01:03

-We'll just have a map reference, not a name.

-It's a start!

1:01:031:01:06

-Sherlock...

-Narrows it down from just anyone in London.

1:01:061:01:09

-It's the first proper lead that we've had.

-Sherlock...

1:01:091:01:11

Where is it? Quickly, where?

1:01:111:01:14

Here. It's...in 221 Baker Street.

1:01:141:01:17

How can it be here?

1:01:181:01:20

How?

1:01:201:01:22

Maybe it was in the case when you brought it back and it...fell out somewhere.

1:01:221:01:25

What, and I didn't notice it? Me - I didn't notice?

1:01:251:01:29

Anyway, we texted him and he called back.

1:01:291:01:31

Guys, we're also looking for a mobile somewhere here,

1:01:311:01:34

-belonged to the victim...

-'Who do we trust, even if we don't know them?

1:01:341:01:37

'Who passes unnoticed wherever they go?

1:01:471:01:50

'Who hunts in the middle of a crowd?'

1:01:541:01:57

TEXT MESSAGE ALERT

1:02:261:02:27

-Sherlock, you OK?

-What...?

1:02:351:02:38

Yeah, yeah... I'm fine.

1:02:381:02:40

So, how can the phone be here?

1:02:401:02:42

Don't know.

1:02:421:02:43

-I'll try it again.

-Good idea.

1:02:431:02:45

Where are you going?

1:02:451:02:47

Fresh air, just popping outside for a moment. Won't be long.

1:02:471:02:50

-You sure you're all right?

-I'm fine.

1:02:501:02:52

Taxi for Sherlock Holmes.

1:03:031:03:04

I didn't order a taxi.

1:03:071:03:10

Doesn't mean you don't need one.

1:03:101:03:12

You're the cabbie.

1:03:131:03:15

The one who stopped outside Northumberland Street.

1:03:161:03:19

It was you. Not your passenger.

1:03:241:03:26

See? No-one ever thinks about the cabbie.

1:03:261:03:29

It's like you're invisible.

1:03:291:03:31

Just the back of an 'ead.

1:03:311:03:33

Proper advantage for a serial killer.

1:03:341:03:37

-Is this a confession?

-Oh, yeah.

1:03:391:03:41

I'll tell you what else...

1:03:421:03:44

If you call the coppers now, I won't run.

1:03:441:03:46

I'll sit quiet and they can take me down, I promise.

1:03:471:03:51

Why?

1:03:511:03:52

-Cos you're not going to do that.

-Am I not?

1:03:521:03:55

I didn't kill those four people, Mr Holmes.

1:03:571:04:00

I spoke to 'em...

1:04:001:04:02

and they killed themselves.

1:04:021:04:04

If you get the coppers now, I'll promise you one thing.

1:04:061:04:09

I will never tell you what I said.

1:04:111:04:13

No-one else will die, though, and I believe they call that a result.

1:04:191:04:22

And you won't ever understand how those people died.

1:04:221:04:26

What kind of result do you care about?

1:04:271:04:29

If I wanted to understand...

1:04:451:04:47

-..what would I do?

-Let me take you for a ride.

1:04:481:04:51

-So you can kill me too?

-I don't want to kill you, Mr Holmes.

1:04:511:04:54

I'm going to talk to ya...

1:04:561:04:58

..and then you're going to kill yourself.

1:04:591:05:02

DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES

1:05:121:05:15

ENGINE STARTS

1:05:161:05:17

He just got in a cab... It's Sherlock. He just drove off in a cab.

1:05:201:05:23

I told you, he does that.

1:05:231:05:25

He bloody left again.

1:05:251:05:26

We're wasting our time!

1:05:261:05:28

I'm...calling the phone, it's ringing out.

1:05:281:05:30

PHONE RINGS

1:05:311:05:33

PHONE KEEPS RINGING

1:05:371:05:38

PHONE KEEPS RINGING

1:05:411:05:42

And if it's ringing, it's not here.

1:05:421:05:44

-I'll try the search again.

-Does it matter? Does any of it?

1:05:441:05:48

He's just a lunatic, and he'll always let you down. And you're wasting your time. All our time.

1:05:481:05:54

OK, everybody...

1:06:001:06:02

done here.

1:06:021:06:04

How did you find me?

1:06:061:06:08

Oh, I recognised ya.

1:06:081:06:10

Soon as I saw you chasing my cab.

1:06:121:06:13

Sherlock Holmes!

1:06:141:06:17

I was warned about you.

1:06:181:06:19

I've been on your website, too. Brilliant stuff! Loved it.

1:06:201:06:24

-Who warned you about me?

-Just someone out there who's noticed.

1:06:241:06:28

Who?

1:06:291:06:31

Who would notice me?

1:06:381:06:40

-You're too modest, Mr Holmes.

-I'm really not.

1:06:401:06:43

Got yourself a fan.

1:06:431:06:45

Tell me more.

1:06:461:06:48

That's all you're going to know.

1:06:481:06:49

In THIS lifetime.

1:06:511:06:53

Why did he do that? Why did he have to leave?

1:06:541:06:56

You know him better than I do.

1:06:561:06:58

I've known him for five years - and no, I don't.

1:06:581:07:02

So why do you put up with him?

1:07:031:07:05

Because I'm desperate, that's why.

1:07:061:07:08

And because Sherlock Holmes is a great man -

1:07:101:07:12

and I think one day, if we're very, very lucky,

1:07:121:07:16

he might even be a good one.

1:07:161:07:18

Where are we?

1:07:391:07:41

You know every street in London. You know exactly where we are.

1:07:421:07:45

Roland-Kerr Further Education College.

1:07:451:07:48

-Why here?

-It's open.

1:07:481:07:51

Cleaners are in.

1:07:511:07:53

One thing about being a cabbie - you always know a nice quiet spot for a murder.

1:07:531:07:57

I'm surprised more of us don't branch out.

1:07:571:08:00

And you just walk your victims in? How?

1:08:011:08:03

Oh... Dull.

1:08:051:08:07

Don't worry. It gets better.

1:08:071:08:08

-You can't make people take their own lives at gunpoint.

-I don't.

1:08:091:08:14

It's much better than that.

1:08:141:08:17

Don't need this with you. Cos you'll follow me.

1:08:171:08:20

BEEP

1:08:431:08:45

CONTINUED BEEPING

1:08:461:08:47

Well, what do you think?

1:09:111:09:14

It's up to you.

1:09:151:09:17

You're the one who's going to die here.

1:09:171:09:19

-No, I'm not.

-That's what they all say.

1:09:211:09:24

Shall we talk?

1:09:261:09:27

Bit risky, wasn't it?

1:09:421:09:44

Took me away under the eye of about half a dozen policemen.

1:09:451:09:48

They're not that stupid.

1:09:481:09:50

And Mrs Hudson will remember you.

1:09:501:09:52

You call that a risk? Nah...

1:09:521:09:55

THIS is a risk.

1:09:551:09:57

Oh, I like this bit.

1:10:051:10:07

Cos you don't get it yet, do ya?

1:10:071:10:09

But you're about to.

1:10:111:10:13

I just have to do this...

1:10:141:10:16

Weren't expecting that, were ya?

1:10:221:10:24

Oh, you're going to love this.

1:10:251:10:27

-Love what?

-Sherlock Holmes! Look at you!

1:10:271:10:30

Here in the flesh. That website of yours, your fan told me about it.

1:10:321:10:37

My fan?

1:10:371:10:38

You are brilliant.

1:10:381:10:41

You are a proper genius.

1:10:411:10:44

The Science of Deduction. Now, that...

1:10:441:10:47

is proper thinking.

1:10:471:10:50

Between you and me sitting here, why can't people think?

1:10:511:10:54

Don't it make you mad?

1:10:561:10:58

Why can't people just think?

1:10:591:11:01

Oh, I see... So you're a proper genius too.

1:11:051:11:09

Don't look it, do I?

1:11:091:11:11

Funny little man driving a cab.

1:11:121:11:14

But you'll know better in a minute.

1:11:151:11:17

Chances are it'll be the last thing you EVER know.

1:11:171:11:20

OK, two bottles. Explain.

1:11:221:11:24

There's a good bottle and a bad bottle.

1:11:261:11:28

You take the pill from the good bottle, you live.

1:11:281:11:31

You take the pill from the bad bottle...you die.

1:11:311:11:35

-Both bottles are of course identical.

-In every way.

1:11:351:11:37

-And you know which is which.

-Of course I know.

-But I don't.

1:11:371:11:40

Wouldn't be a game if you knew. You're the one who chooses.

1:11:401:11:43

Why should I? I've got nothing to go on. What's in it for me?

1:11:431:11:47

I haven't told you the best bit yet.

1:11:481:11:50

Whatever bottle YOU choose,

1:11:511:11:53

I take the pill from the other one.

1:11:531:11:55

And then together...

1:11:561:11:57

we take our medicine.

1:11:571:12:00

I won't cheat. It's your choice.

1:12:021:12:05

I'll take whatever pill you don't.

1:12:061:12:08

Didn't expect that, did you, Mr Holmes?

1:12:111:12:14

This is what you did to the rest of them -

1:12:141:12:16

-you gave them a choice?

-And now I'm giving you one.

1:12:161:12:19

You take your time.

1:12:201:12:22

Get yourself together.

1:12:221:12:24

-I want your best game.

-It's not a game, it's chance.

1:12:251:12:28

I've played four times. I'm alive.

1:12:281:12:31

It's not chance, Mr Holmes, it's chess.

1:12:321:12:35

It's a game of chess,

1:12:361:12:38

with one move...and one survivor.

1:12:381:12:42

And this - this...

1:12:431:12:46

is the move.

1:12:461:12:48

Did I just give you the good bottle or the bad bottle?

1:12:561:12:59

You can choose either one.

1:12:591:13:01

No, Detective Inspector Lestrade - I need to speak to him.

1:13:041:13:08

It's important. It's an emergency.

1:13:081:13:10

Er, left here, please. Left here...

1:13:101:13:12

You ready yet, Mr Holmes?

1:13:241:13:26

-Ready to play?

-Play what? It's a 50:50 chance.

1:13:261:13:30

You're not playing the numbers, you're playing ME.

1:13:301:13:32

Did I just give you the good pill or the bad pill?

1:13:351:13:38

Is it a bluff,

1:13:381:13:40

or a double bluff?

1:13:401:13:42

-Or a triple bluff?

-It's still just chance.

1:13:421:13:44

Four people, in a row? It's not chance.

1:13:441:13:46

-Luck.

-It's genius!

1:13:461:13:48

I know how people think.

1:13:491:13:52

-I know how people think

-I

-think.

1:13:521:13:54

I can see it all like a map inside my head.

1:13:551:13:57

Everyone's so stupid, even you.

1:13:581:14:01

Or maybe God just loves me.

1:14:011:14:03

Either way, you're wasted as a cabbie.

1:14:071:14:09

So...

1:14:181:14:20

You risked your life four times just to kill strangers? Why?

1:14:211:14:25

Time to play.

1:14:251:14:26

Oh, I am playing.

1:14:261:14:29

This is my turn.

1:14:291:14:30

There's shaving foam behind your left ear. Nobody's pointed it out to you.

1:14:311:14:35

Traces of where it's happened before, so obviously you live on your own - there's no-one to tell you.

1:14:351:14:40

But there's a photograph of children. Their mother's been cut out.

1:14:401:14:43

If she'd died, she'd still be there.

1:14:431:14:45

The photograph's old, but the frame's new.

1:14:451:14:47

You think of your children, but you don't get to see them.

1:14:471:14:49

Estranged father.

1:14:491:14:52

She took the kids,

1:14:521:14:53

but you still love them and it still hurts.

1:14:531:14:57

Ah, but there's more.

1:14:581:14:59

Your clothes. Recently laundered,

1:15:011:15:03

but everything you're wearing is at least...three years old?

1:15:031:15:06

Keeping up appearances, but not planning ahead.

1:15:071:15:10

And here you are on a kamikaze murder spree. What's that about?

1:15:111:15:15

Ah...

1:15:191:15:21

Three years ago. Is that when they told you?

1:15:211:15:23

Told me what?

1:15:231:15:26

-That you're a dead man walking.

-So are you.

1:15:261:15:28

You don't have long, though.

1:15:281:15:29

Am I right?

1:15:291:15:32

Aneurism. Right in 'ere.

1:15:331:15:35

Any breath could be my last.

1:15:381:15:41

And because you're dying, you've just murdered four people.

1:15:411:15:44

I've outlived four people.

1:15:441:15:46

That's the most fun you can have with an aneurism.

1:15:481:15:51

No... No, there's something else.

1:15:521:15:55

You didn't just kill four people because you're bitter. Bitterness is a paralytic.

1:15:551:15:59

Love is a much more vicious motivator.

1:15:591:16:03

Somehow, this is about your children.

1:16:051:16:08

Oh...

1:16:081:16:09

-You ARE good, in't ya?

-But how?

1:16:111:16:14

When I die they won't get much, my kids.

1:16:151:16:18

Not a lot of money in driving cabs.

1:16:201:16:22

-Or serial killing.

-You'd be surprised.

1:16:221:16:25

Surprise me.

1:16:251:16:26

I have a sponsor.

1:16:291:16:31

-You have a what?

-For every life I take, money goes to my kids.

1:16:311:16:35

The more I kill... the better off they'll be.

1:16:351:16:39

You see? It's nicer than you think.

1:16:401:16:43

Who'd sponsor a serial killer?

1:16:431:16:45

Who'd be a fan of Sherlock Holmes?

1:16:451:16:48

You're not the only one to enjoy a good murder.

1:16:511:16:54

There's others out there just like you, except you're just a man.

1:16:541:16:58

And they're so much more than that.

1:16:591:17:02

What do you mean...

1:17:041:17:05

more than a man?

1:17:051:17:07

An organisation...? What?

1:17:081:17:10

There's a name, that no-one says.

1:17:101:17:15

And I'm not going to say it either.

1:17:151:17:16

Now, enough chatter.

1:17:181:17:20

Time to choose.

1:17:221:17:24

Sherlock?!

1:17:291:17:30

Sherlock!

1:17:341:17:36

What if I don't choose either? I could just walk out of here.

1:17:361:17:40

You can take a 50:50 chance,

1:17:431:17:46

or I can shoot you in the head.

1:17:461:17:49

Funnily enough,

1:17:501:17:52

no-one's ever gone for that option.

1:17:521:17:54

I'll have the gun, please.

1:17:541:17:56

Are you sure?

1:17:571:17:59

Definitely. The gun.

1:18:001:18:02

You don't want to phone a friend(?)

1:18:021:18:04

The gun.

1:18:051:18:08

I know a real gun when I see one.

1:18:131:18:14

-None of the others did.

-Clearly.

1:18:161:18:19

Well, this has been very interesting.

1:18:201:18:23

I look forward to the court case.

1:18:231:18:26

Just before you go, did you figure it out?

1:18:291:18:31

Which one's the good bottle?

1:18:331:18:35

Course. Child's play.

1:18:351:18:37

Well, which one, then?

1:18:381:18:39

Which one would you have picked?

1:18:411:18:42

Just so I know whether I could have beaten you.

1:18:421:18:46

Come on!

1:18:471:18:49

Play the game.

1:18:491:18:50

Oh!

1:19:041:19:05

Interesting.

1:19:061:19:09

So what do you think?

1:19:171:19:19

Shall we?

1:19:201:19:22

Really... What do you think?

1:19:241:19:26

Can you beat me?

1:19:281:19:29

Are you clever enough...

1:19:311:19:34

..to bet your life?

1:19:351:19:36

-FAINTLY:

-SHERLOCK!

1:19:491:19:50

I bet you get bored, don't you?

1:19:521:19:54

I know you do.

1:19:551:19:57

A man like you. So clever.

1:19:571:20:01

But what's the point of being clever if you can't prove it?

1:20:021:20:06

Still the addict.

1:20:071:20:09

But this...this is what you're really addicted to.

1:20:111:20:14

You'll do anything...

1:20:161:20:18

..anything at all, to stop being bored.

1:20:191:20:23

You're not bored now, are ya?

1:20:251:20:27

Isn't it good?

1:20:281:20:29

GUNSHOT

1:20:291:20:30

CABBIE GASPS

1:20:411:20:43

Was I right?

1:20:441:20:46

I was, wasn't I?

1:20:461:20:47

Did I get it right?!

1:20:471:20:49

OK... Tell me this.

1:20:531:20:56

Your sponsor. Who was it?

1:20:571:20:59

The one who told you about me, my fan.

1:20:591:21:02

I want a name.

1:21:021:21:03

No...

1:21:031:21:05

You're dying, but there's still time to hurt you.

1:21:051:21:08

Give me...a name.

1:21:081:21:11

HE GASPS

1:21:111:21:12

A name! Now.

1:21:131:21:16

The name!

1:21:181:21:19

-HE GASPS

-MORIARTY!

1:21:191:21:23

SIRENS WAIL

1:21:371:21:39

Why have I got this blanket? They keep putting this blanket on me.

1:21:441:21:48

-Yeah, it's for shock.

-I'm not in shock.

1:21:481:21:49

Yeah, but some of the guys want to take photographs.

1:21:491:21:52

So, the shooter. No sign?

1:21:541:21:56

Cleared off before we got here. But a guy like that would have had enemies, I suppose.

1:21:561:22:00

One of them could have been following him, but...

1:22:001:22:03

we've got nothing to go on.

1:22:031:22:05

Oh, I wouldn't say that.

1:22:051:22:07

OK. Give me.

1:22:081:22:10

The bullet they just dug out of the wall's from a handgun.

1:22:101:22:13

A kill shot over that distance, that's a crack shot. But not just a marksman, a fighter.

1:22:131:22:17

His hands couldn't have shaken at all so clearly he's acclimatised to violence.

1:22:171:22:21

He didn't fire until I was in immediate danger though, so strong moral principle.

1:22:211:22:25

You're looking for a man probably with a history of military service, and...

1:22:251:22:29

nerves of steel...

1:22:291:22:30

-Actually, do you know what? Ignore me.

-Sorry?

-Ignore all of that.

1:22:371:22:40

It's just the er...the shock talking.

1:22:401:22:43

-Where are you going?

-I just need to...talk about the rent.

1:22:431:22:46

-I've still got questions.

-What now? I'm in shock - look, I've got a blanket.

1:22:461:22:49

-Sherlock!

-And, I just caught you a serial killer... More or less.

1:22:491:22:54

OK. We'll pull you in tomorrow, off you go.

1:22:571:23:00

Erm - Sergeant Donovan has... just been explaining everything.

1:23:081:23:12

The two pills...

1:23:121:23:14

Dreadful business, isn't it? Dreadful.

1:23:151:23:17

Good shot.

1:23:181:23:19

-Yes. Yes, must have been. Through that window.

-Well, you'd know.

1:23:201:23:23

Need to get the powder burns out of your fingers.

1:23:261:23:28

I don't suppose you'd serve time for this, but let's avoid the court case.

1:23:281:23:32

-Are you all right?

-Yes, of course I'm all right.

1:23:321:23:35

-Well, you have just killed a man.

-Yes...

1:23:351:23:36

That's true, isn't it?

1:23:401:23:41

But he wasn't a very nice man.

1:23:421:23:45

-No. No, he wasn't, really, was he?

-Frankly a bloody awful cabbie.

1:23:461:23:50

SHERLOCK CHUCKLES That's true, he was a bad cabbie.

1:23:501:23:53

You should have seen the route he took us to get here.

1:23:531:23:56

Stop it! We can't giggle, it's a crime scene. Stop it.

1:23:561:23:59

-Well, you're the one who shot him.

-Keep your voice down.

1:23:591:24:01

-Sorry, it's just erm... nerves, I think.

-Sorry.

1:24:011:24:05

-You were going to take that damn pill, weren't you?

-Course I wasn't.

1:24:051:24:09

Biding my time. Knew you'd turn up.

1:24:101:24:12

No, you didn't.

1:24:121:24:13

That's how you get your kicks, isn't it - you risk your life to prove you're clever.

1:24:131:24:17

-Why would I do that?

-Because you're an idiot.

1:24:171:24:20

-Dinner?

-Starving.

1:24:221:24:24

End of Baker Street there's a good Chinese. Stays open till two.

1:24:241:24:27

You can tell a good Chinese by the bottom third of the door handle.

1:24:271:24:30

Sherlock... That's him, that's the man I was talking to you about.

1:24:301:24:34

I know exactly who that is.

1:24:341:24:36

So... Another case cracked.

1:24:361:24:39

How very public-spirited.

1:24:391:24:41

Though that's never really your motivation, is it?

1:24:411:24:44

What are you doing here?

1:24:451:24:46

As ever, I'm concerned about you.

1:24:461:24:48

Yes, I've been hearing about your "concern".

1:24:481:24:50

Always so aggressive.

1:24:501:24:52

Did it never occur to you that you and I belong on the same side?

1:24:521:24:55

Oddly enough - no.

1:24:551:24:57

We have more in common than you'd like to believe.

1:24:571:25:00

This petty feud between us is simply childish.

1:25:001:25:03

People will suffer. And you know how it always upset Mummy.

1:25:031:25:07

I upset her?

1:25:081:25:10

Me?

1:25:101:25:12

It wasn't me that upset her, Mycroft.

1:25:121:25:14

No. No, wait...

1:25:141:25:16

Mummy? Who's Mummy?

1:25:161:25:17

Mother. Our mother.

1:25:171:25:20

This is my brother, Mycroft.

1:25:201:25:21

Putting on weight again?

1:25:211:25:23

-Losing it, in fact.

-He's your brother?

1:25:241:25:27

Course he's my brother.

1:25:271:25:29

-So he's not...

-Not what?

1:25:301:25:31

I don't know... Criminal mastermind?

1:25:331:25:35

-Close enough.

-For goodness' sake.

1:25:361:25:38

I occupy a minor position in the British government.

1:25:381:25:41

He IS the British government, when he's not too busy being the British secret service

1:25:411:25:46

or the CIA on a freelance basis.

1:25:461:25:47

Good evening, Mycroft. Try not to start a war before I get home,

1:25:471:25:51

you know what it does for the traffic.

1:25:511:25:53

So, when you say you're concerned about him - you actually are concerned?

1:25:551:25:59

Yes, of course.

1:25:591:26:00

I mean, it actually is a childish feud?

1:26:011:26:03

He's always been so resentful.

1:26:041:26:06

-You can imagine the Christmas dinners.

-Yeah...

1:26:061:26:10

No... God, no.

1:26:101:26:12

I'd better erm...

1:26:131:26:15

Hello again.

1:26:151:26:17

-Hello.

-We met earlier on this evening.

1:26:171:26:20

-Oh!

-OK. Goodnight.

1:26:211:26:23

Goodnight, Dr Watson.

1:26:231:26:25

-So, dim sum.

-Mmm!

1:26:271:26:29

-I can always predict the fortune cookies.

-No, you can't.

1:26:291:26:31

Almost can. You did get shot, though.

1:26:311:26:33

-Sorry?

-In Afghanistan. There was an actual wound.

1:26:331:26:36

-Oh. Yeah, shoulder.

-Shoulder! I thought so.

1:26:361:26:38

-No, you didn't.

-The left one.

-Lucky guess.

-I never guess.

1:26:381:26:41

Yes, you do.

1:26:411:26:43

-What are you so happy about?

-Moriarty.

1:26:431:26:46

-What's Moriarty?

-I've absolutely no idea.

1:26:461:26:49

Sir, shall we go?

1:26:501:26:53

Interesting, that soldier fellow.

1:26:531:26:56

He could be the making of my brother...

1:26:561:26:59

or make him worse than ever.

1:26:591:27:00

Either way, we'd better upgrade their surveillance status.

1:27:011:27:04

Grade three active.

1:27:041:27:07

Sorry, sir - whose status?

1:27:071:27:09

Sherlock Holmes, and Dr Watson.
