*** [[spoiler: Her plan to destroy Sherlock is critically dependent on help from Moriarty. In order to meet Jim, Eurus needs to convince Mycroft to arrange a meeting for the two [[EvilGenius evil geniuses]]. This part of the plan requires Mycroft, who is phenomenally smart and is deeply caring about Sherlock, to allow an unsupervised meeting between two extremely dangerously psychotic and intelligent criminals, ''[[CardCarryingVillain who are not hiding their intentions to harm his brother]]''. If Mycroft refuses, she loses her only chance to do anything outside her prison cell for the rest of her life.]]
*** [[spoiler: Eurus has to be able to [[CompellingVoice brainwash]] all the prison staff discretely and completely without Mycroft or any other top government agent noticing somehow, ''hope'' that Sherlock survives dismantling Moriarty’s network; ''hope'' that he survives a terror attack plot; ''hope'' that his confrontation with extremely dangerous [[TheChessmaster Magnussen]] would not end with Sherlock being destroyed; [[HollywoodHacking hack]] the telecommunication system of Great Britain to distribute Moriarty’s message ''[[ClockKing at the perfectly calculated time]]'' without anyone noticing; leave prison; reconstruct Musgrave estate without Mycroft noticing; seduce John “the Family Man” Watson and ''hope again'' that Sherlock would not see through her disguise as Culverton Smith’s daughter.

*** [[spoiler: Her plan to destroy Sherlock is critically dependent on help from Moriarty. In order to meet Jim, Eurus needs to convince Mycroft to arrange a meeting for the two [[EvilGenius evil geniuses]]. This part of the plan requires Mycroft, who is phenomenally smart and is deeply caring about Sherlock, to [[PlotInducedStupidity act very dumb]] for no good reason and to allow an unsupervised meeting between two extremely dangerously psychotic and intelligent criminals, ''[[CardCarryingVillain who are not hiding their intentions to harm his brother]]''. If Mycroft refused, she would've lost her only chance to do anything outside her prison cell for the rest of her life. This highly improbable scenario works in the actual episode because plot needs to move.]]
*** [[spoiler: Ironically, one of the largest gambles and risks for her plan was highly unpredictable and unreliable [[PsychopathicManchild Moriarty]] himself. In ''"The Reichenbach Fall"'' Moriarty went full force against Sherlock and was willing to see his nemesis die, which, for obvious reasons, could cancel out plan of Eurus entirely. She also needed ''Moriarty'' to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness die]] himself and get out of the picture with absolutely no guarantees that any of these events would happen as predicted. In fact, Moriarty seemed content with continuing his games with "ordinary" people. Her whole plan hinged on highly specific outcomes, typical of any GambitRoulette plans, while for Moriarty postmortem game was just an entertaining ''alternative'' option in his grandiose XanatosGambit.]]

In each instance chance of failure was as high as it gets with her plan critically requiring British authorities, as well as her supergenius brothers, to be extremely incompetent for no reason whatsoever.]]
*** [[spoiler: In ''"The Final Problem"'' itself her plan required Sherlock, John and Mycroft to [[NoOneShouldSurviveThat survive a grenade explosion at close range]] and infiltrate the [[TheAlcatraz highest security island prison]] with a ''very'' high chance of someone being killed or arrested in the process. In the prison, her whole plan hinges entirely on Sherlock, master of SherlockScan, not noticing the ''lack of glass''. Later trials absolutely required her brothers to suddenly get [[TheWorfEffect dumbed down]] and play by her rules without any [[IndyPloy improvisations]] or [[TakeAThirdOption creative solutions]] or even recognizing Eurus as little girl impersonator. Of course her initial plan does fall apart the moment Sherlock just ignores her rules.]]

A similar concept to ''Series/{{Jekyll}}'', another Creator/StevenMoffat-produced television series based around setting a classic Victorian story in the 21st century. Not to be confused with ''Series/{{Elementary}}'', the American ''Sherlock Holmes'' show also set in modern times but otherwise completely different in premise and episodic structure. Has an official [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-09-01/bbc-tv-sherlock-re-imagining-gets-japanese-manga manga adaptation]], of all things.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: The twist that Charles Agustus Milverton has no actual physical information on his blackmail victims begs the question of how he manages to blackmail anyone with no evidence to release. His news network would need sources beyond something their boss ''remembers'' to do run damaging stories on people.

* SpotTheThread: In "The Final Problem" while Mycroft is busy yelling at a government warden for his failings in letting people be alone a with the sociopath under government incarceration. Mycroft notes this person is so dangerous, the person will turn many people into agents to the person's command. John is paying close attention to the recordings of sociopath playing in the same room while Mycroft is doing this. John then notices [[spoiler:it is the warden's voice on the other side of the recordings. He has been alone with the prisoner and has been turned into the person's agent]]. All while Mycroft is too angry to notice.

** John's middle name Hamish. John mentions it as part of a MomentKiller in "A Scandal In Belgravia", and it becomes a plot point towards the end of "The Sign Of Three" when a seemingly random woman happens to know it.

[[Recap/SherlockS03E03HisLastVow Four episodes later]], Sherlock states his full name (William Sherlock Scott Holmes) and the aforementioned quotation during [[spoiler:his last conversation with John and his wife Mary, as Sherlock is heading on a MI6 mission that could potentially get him killed, as penance for [[BoomHeadshot shooting]] the BigBad in an attempt to protect John and his family. He is suggesting this because Mary is pregnant, meaning that he wants John to have someone to remember him by]].
