*** That said, "He speaks like a posh Dublin fellow" would have helped to narrow the field down ''considerably''.

** She isn't a psychopath, John was just angry when he said that. She is, however, clever and dangerous and that's what John is attracted to. And she does demonstrate those qualities, albeit in a muted form.

** "Blud" is slang associated with poorer parts of the British population. Mycroft was playing the English gent to the hilt so Sherlock responded by playing the street tough.

** There might be a Transatlantic issue here: British Community Support Officers are not full time Police Officers and, if memory serves, get less authority and training. As such the (probably extremely unfair in most cases) stereotype is that they are neither very good at what they do nor that dedicated to the job.

** A policeman could give someone a lift and under such a circumstance you'd be in the back like a cab and might miss the case. Same for an ambulance. Other options exist.

** Mycroft is married to his job, he is most probably never at home (we've seen in a previous episode how empty his fridge was and that he always orders food). It must have taken Sherlock a few hours at most to set everything up when Mycroft wasn't there, then he waited for him to come home and put everything in motion.

** As the previous troper said he knows it's too late, but there is also the fact that she is his wife. He panicked. This is the reason why it is not recommended (although not forbidden) for doctors to perform medicals acts on members of their families.
