** The large amount of [[HoYay homoerotic subtext]] between John and Sherlock (which even has been lampshaded multiple times) has caused many reactions by the fandom. Some viewers enjoy it or even believe it is genuine ShipTease to hint at John and Sherlock getting a RelationshipUpgrade while others believe that the writer's have no plan on getting John and Sherlock together and simply added the subtext to attract more YaoiFangirls. WordOfGod is that the subtext is real/intentional, meaning John and Sherlock are about as emotionally close as two people in a romantic relationship can be, but if they were to actually make them a couple it wouldn't happen until the end of the series in order to avoid ShippingBedDeath.

** Henry. His mother died when he was very young, then ''he watched his father DIE'' [[spoiler: by the hands of Dr. Franklin, but he was manipulated into thinking it was a monsterous Hound]], becoming an orphan from the age of seven, which left HUGE mental scars on him, so much so that everybody takes him as mentally disturbed. And he apparently doesn't have much of a lovelife or any nearby relatives. And what's worse is [[spoiler: Dr. Franklin is STILL DOING IT TO HIM until Sherlock and Watson solve the case, and Henry almost commits ''suicide'' over it. It's amazing he even survived the episode.]]. Poor guy...

** In "His Last Vow", Magnussen crosses it by [[spoiler:threatening Mary Morstan with blackmail, that would doubtlessly be catastrophic for the Watsons]]. How bad is this? It's so bad that Sherlock [[spoiler:outright ''murders'' him, something that he didn't even come close to doing with Moriarty]]. This is assuming he didn't cross it by driving a man to suicide or trying to burn [[spoiler:John Watson]] alive

** Magnussen, owing to his DangerouslyGenreSavvy moments coupled with him being an absolute creep.

** More generally there are fights with fans of other versions of Franchise/SherlockHolmes, including the original Conan Doyle stories, who are upset that the show's Sherlock is such an extreme InsufferableGenius and that PopCulturalOsmosis causes some people to believe that all versions of Holmes are that unpleasant.



*** [[spoiler: Could be averted as Sherlock believes Moriarty is dead and probably planned a selected group of people and use his image during the events of 'The Abominable Bride']].

Added DiffLines:

** The FandomRivalry between fans of this show and [[Film/SherlockHolmes the Robert Downey, Jr. films]] got a lot funnier when it was announced that Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey, Jr. would ''both'' be playing superheroes in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse: ComicBook/DoctorStrange and ComicBook/IronMan, respectively. Making it funnier, both characters are complete opposites in every way (one is a hedonistic, wise-cracking ScienceHero, the other a stoic, ascetic sorcerer), and it's practically inevitable that they'll end up sharing the screen at some point.

** The 2013 National Television Awards have made enemies of DowntonAbbey fans for winning over Sherlock. Cue more tag-flooding on Tumblr... of the wrong tag.

Added DiffLines:

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: This show uses some very creative and flashy transitions (like superimposing a character from one scene over the scene they are transitioning to, as if the character is pulling away their own scene to bring us to the next one). It also does things like place the thoughts of Sherlock or the text messages a character is reading onscreen as if they were being shown in an alternate reality display, giving the series an interesting high-tech feel.

** Sherlock and Moriarty, naturally. Moriarty calls Sherlock 'sexy', the dance between them 'flirting', and so on. Almost all one-sided though, due to [[spoiler: the deliciously camp re-imagining of Moriarty]].

** Sherlock and Moriarty, naturally. Moriarty calls Sherlock 'sexy', the dance between them 'flirting', and so on. Almost all one-sided though, due to [[spoiler: the deliciously camp re-imagining of Moriarty]]. One of The Empty Hearse members has a flight of fancy imagining Sherlock's suicide scene was a conspiracy between him and Moriarty so they could get John out of the picture and make out on the rooftop.
