*** In "His Last Vow" Mycroft calls Sherlock a “a scalpel wielded with precision” in comparison to a "blunt instrument". A "blunt instrument" was Creator/IanFleming's traditional description of Literature/JamesBond. It's also often used to distinguish their characters: Sherlock takes down criminals by analysing and figuring out their methods, while James takes down criminals using force. And fitting for a professional assassin, [[spoiler: Mary Watson]] uses a suppressed Walther PPK, Bond's signature weapon, to [[spoiler: threaten Magnussen and shoot Sherlock]].

* SurroundedByIdiots: Mycroft implies this in his dialogue in The Empty Hearse; when discussing their relative intelligence, Mycroft says to Sherlock: "If you seem slow to me, Sherlock, imagine how real people are like. I'm living in a world full of goldfish." Worth pointing out that Sherlock has supersonic thinking processes compared to normal people, so if Sherlock is slow to Mycroft.....
