** According to LiveJournal, John's mustache has more important things to do than be on John's face, like [[MemeticBadass taking down terrorist cells and winning the Olympics.]]

** Sherlock seems never to remember Lestrade's first name. Does he really 'delete' it every time-or is he just screwing with Lestrade by pretending to forget? The Final Problem seems to imply the latter.

* CompleteMonster: [[DiabolicalMastermind Jim Moriarty]], Holmes's ArchEnemy, is the world's only "[[PsychoForHire consulting criminal]]", lending his genius to help others commit their crimes. His main motivations are to [[ForTheEvulz distract himself from his boredom]] and to [[AttentionWhore catch the attention of Sherlock Holmes]]. The OverarchingVillain of the first two seasons, Moriarty had an effect in the [[Recap/SherlockS01E01AStudyInPink first]] [[Recap/SherlockS01E02TheBlindBanker two]] episodes, but really took center stage in "[[Recap/SherlockS01E03TheGreatGame The Great Game]]" where he plays a little "game" with Sherlock, selling out his clients and challenging the detective to solve their crimes within a certain time limit or else Moriarty would detonate bombs he strapped to innocent people, [[WouldHurtAChild which includes one child]]. When one of his victims, a blind, traumatized, old woman, only begins to describe the sound of Moriarty's voice, Moriarty detonates her bomb, killing her and eleven others. Later on, in "[[Recap/SherlockS02E03TheReichenbachFall The Reichenbach Fall]]", Moriarty [[JuryAndWitnessTampering threatens the family members of jurors to get himself declared innocent]], kidnaps and poisons two children, murders his accomplice, [[FrameUp frames Sherlock]] for both Moriarty's crimes as well as the crimes Sherlock solved, then tries to force Sherlock to commit suicide under threat of having his loved ones assassinated. When Sherlock points out he can force Moriarty to call off the killers, he [[spoiler: [[AteHisGun merrily eats his gun]]]] to "win" his game with Sherlock. Moriarty was the [[EvilCounterpart dark reflection of Sherlock]]: a [[TheSociopath sociopathic]], {{manipulative|Bastard}}, [[EvilGenius genius]] who would [[TheUnfettered let nothing stand in his way]] to escape from his [[ItAmusedMe excruciating boredom]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In "The Lying Detective", we learn that [[spoiler: Eurus has been posing as John's therapist; she was also the woman he'd been having a text-based affair with, and they met face to face then at least once.]] The following episode reveals that, unless you're a supergenius like Mycroft and Sherlock, she can implant orders into your mind just by talking to you. You'd think this would be set-up for her having some control over [[spoiler: John.]] Nope!

** Mary Morstan can be this for some, as her character is very extreme (a nice housewife-type who also happens to be [[spoiler:a [[Film/TheBourneSeries Jason Bourne]]-esque elite mercenary]]) and can push the limitations of WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief for a series that has an otherwise relatively grounded setting. [[spoiler:Her death in the beginning of series 4 is either tragic or the removal of a PlotTumor]].

** In "A Study in Pink", the nail marks spelling out 'Rache' next to the body of the woman in pink are only visible in the couple of shots where they're relevant to Sherlock's deductions.

*** As of "The Final Problem," Mofftiss actually made an oblique reference to Mystrade.
