* Sherlock's eventual [[spoiler: reunion with John post-Reichenbach is normally after three years (as it was in the novels)]] and John either punches Sherlock, kisses him, or faints (depending on whether or not the person is a shipper and if they've read the originals).

As it turns out, it's [[spoiler: two years, and John first punches, then headbutts Sherlock]].

* It's commonly accepted that the Holmes family is very, very rich. Many stories involve the "Holmes Estate". However, the story "His Final Vow" shows Mr. and Mrs. Holmes living in a cottage in the country--not exactly a mansion.

* Sherlock says that "Mycroft is the British government, when heís not too busy being the British Secret Service or the CIA on a freelance basis." Fans have taken this to imply that in addition to the British and American intelligence services, he runs basically ''every intelligence service on the planet.'' There's no evidence to support this, but then, there's no evidence against it, either...


* John, as he said in "A Scandal in Belgravia", is "not actually gay" -- [[BiTheWay but neither is he completely inexperienced with men]].

* Many fans treated [[ColdSniper Sebastian]] [[TheDragon Moran]] as a regular character in the show ''long'' before he actually put in an appearance in [[Recap/SherlockS03E01TheEmptyHearse "The Empty Hearse"]]. Most fans assumed that he'd be a faithful modern update of the character in the books, though ''Sherlock'''s Moran (a crooked MP in the House of Lords, who acts as TheManBehindTheMan to a terrorist group) turned out to bear very little resemblance to Doyle's Moran (a former GreatWhiteHunter who acts as Moriarty's personal assassin).

** Martin Freeman [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m18z593pd41r603t3o1_250.jpg is a hedgehog.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Some cheeky Website/{{Tumblr}} user compared Martin Freeman to a hedgehog. The meme exploded, with pictures like "yawning Martin/yawning hedgehog" and "grumpy Martin/grumpy hedgehog" spreading like wildfire. The capstone on the whole thing was Freeman's partner Amanda Abbington's Tweet response to a twitter user who asked if Martin knew about the meme and how he reacted, to which Abbington responded, "He laughs, he cries, then he curls up in a prickly little ball and hibernates for the winter." It also later spawned "[[http://blogs.independent.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Otters-Who-Look-Like-Benedict-Cumberbatch1.jpg otters who look like]] BenedictCumberbatch".[[/labelnote]]

* [[ColdSniper Sebastian]] [[TheDragon Moran]] has not been mentioned or seen on-show, with the closest thing being a minor MythologyGag. If you just went by the fandom, you'd think he was a recurring character. (There is also an interesting trend of casting RichardArmitage in the role, which began with a prompt on the kinkmeme for Film/TheHobbit for Sebastian Moran as the reincarnation of Thorin Oakenshield.)
