* SpiritualAntithesis: To ''Series/DoctorWho'', as Creator/StevenMoffat [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdkeFAVKajk has remarked]] on occasion. ''Doctor Who'' is about a virtually immortal, omnipotent alien who's afraid of losing touch with his compassionate human side, and ''Sherlock'' is about an ordinary human who wants to distance himself from his emotional side.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Sherlock and Watson would be in serious, ''serious'' trouble for keeping and carrying loaded handguns on them like that. Watson retains his Army-issued L106 pistol, which is very, ''very'' illegal for civilians and ex-military to own. This was likely overlooked simply due to how the characters carried guns in the original stories, which pre-date modern British firearms restrictions.
** In 'The Lying Detective' the recording Sherlock made of [[spoiler: Culverton Smith attempting to murder him]] is called 'inadmissible' and 'entrapment.' ''That is not how entrapment works!'' Entrapment is specifically when a '''law enforcement officer''' induces another person into committing a crime ''when they would have been unlikely to do so.'' Sherlock is not a police officer, and the conversation with [[spoiler: Smith]] is not enough to count as provocation. [[spoiler: Smith made the conscious choice to attempt to murder Sherlock,]] and the tape proves it.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Detective Inspector LeStrade occupies this role - he is usually willing to let Sherlock do what he must to solve the mystery at hand, often against his own better judgement.

Added DiffLines:

* DisabilityAlibi: Season four episode "The Final Problem", when given three brothers who are suspects in a murder, Sherlock crosses out two of the brothers as the murderer due to their physical conditions. One of them wore glasses so could no fire the rifle, as the rifle having a scope and a strong recoil would result in his glasses shattering. The other brother was a drunk and did not possess the accuracy to fire the weapon. This leaves the third brother who was indeed the murderer.
