** 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]].

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.

** In 2012 episode "The Hounds of Baskerville," after Sherlock complains about experiencing emotions, Watson sarcastically calls him "Spock." In the 2013 film ''StarTrekIntoDarkness'', Benedict Cumberbatch plays [[spoiler: Khan Noonien Singh]], who has several showdowns with Spock.

* BizarroEpisode: "The Blind Banker," a horribly awkward attempt to translate 19th century YellowPeril villains to the present day, with zero connections to the far better received first and third episodes of Series 1. It stands out so much, in fact, that some fans suspect that Stephen Thompson was left completely in the dark by Moffat and Gatiss except for the base concept of a modern day Holmes and Watson.

*** After His Las Vow many fans lost their sympathy towards her, but mostly because of things other than shipping.

* RonTheDeathEater: Donovan and Anderson have been hit HARD by this in the aftermath of ''Reichenbach''. It frequently gets uncomfortably sexist in Donovan's case (witness the EditWar over her page on the fan-wiki). Though Anderson seems to have redeemed himself with his Atoner personality in Season 3.
