BeneathNotice:
** In one case, the first episode, the murderer is [[spoiler:a taxi driver]]. Sherlock even mentions that the killer has to be someone the victims trusted and who was in plain sight.



** Then done again in the very next episode, "The Sign of Three", where the wedding photographer is the (attempted) murderer. His cover allowed him to go anywhere, not be in any pictures, and no one could describe his face since it was typically hidden by a camera.



** [[spoiler:Vivian, the villain of "The Six Thatchers"]] was a secretary. As Mary puts it, receptionists know everything.
** [[spoiler:Eurus as the shrink in "The Lying Detective".]]



* ExplainExplainOhCrap: Sherlock would often start a sentence only to get an EurekaMoment before finishing it.



* FamedInStory: Sherlock eventually becomes this. John lampshades it.

* SpotOfTea: Used prominently, although Sherlock does drink coffee in [[Recap/SherlockS01E01AStudyInPink his first appearance]]. Like most Brits, John has a favourite mug, with the Royal Army Medical Corps logo on it.
** In the "[[Recap/SherlockS01E02TheBlindBanker The Blind Banker]]" episode, a client makes Chinese tea with hundred-year-old tea pots, and it becomes an important plot point that the antique pots have to be used regularly.
** In "[[Recap/SherlockS02E01AScandalInBelgravia A Scandal in Belgravia]]", John and Sherlock drink tea at Buckingham Palace with Mycroft and a client he is introducing to them. Mycroft is "mother", and Sherlock makes a joke about Mycroft's [[PromotionToParent Self-Promotion To Parent]].
** In "[[Recap/SherlockS02E02TheHoundsOfBaskerville The Hounds of Baskerville]]", John sardonically suggests that he and Sherlock can arrive at a top-secret military base and be greeted with "Come on in, kettle's just boiled."
** In "[[Recap/SherlockS02E03TheReichenbachFall The Reichenbach Fall]]", Moriarty and Sherlock drink tea while discussing crime and genius. Notably, this is the only time they're seen using "the best china" - getting it out of the cupboard is incredibly dramatic.
