Season 1 Quotes

01x02 - The Blind Banker Season 1 / Episode 2: - The Blind Banker

Dr John Watson: "Two trips around the world this month". You didn't ask his secretary. You said that just to irritate him. How did you know?
Sherlock Holmes: Did you see his watch?
Dr John Watson: His watch?
Sherlock Holmes: The time is right but the date was wrong. It said two days ago. Crossed the dateline twice but he didn't alter it.
01x01 - A Study in Pink Season 1 / Episode 1: - A Study in Pink

Sherlock Holmes: So the shooter, no sign?
DI Lestrade: Cleared off before we got here, but a guy like that would have had enemies I suppose. One of them could've been following him, but... got nothing to go on.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh, I wouldn't say that.
DI Lestrade: Okay, give me?
Sherlock Holmes: The bullet they just dug out of the wall is from a handgun. A kill shot over that distance from that kind of a weapon, that's a crack shot you're looking for, but not just a marksman, a fighter. His hands couldn't have shaken at all, so clearly he's acclimatised to violence. He didn't fire until I was in immediate danger though, so strong moral principle. You're looking for a man probably with a history of military service and...

Sherlock Holmes: ...nerves of steel... Actually, do you know what? Ignore me.
DI Lestrade: Sorry?
Sherlock Holmes: Ignore all of that, it's just the, uh, the "shock" talking.

Season 1 Trivia

  • Episode 01 - The plot of A Study in Pink is largely based off the first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, with some changes and allowances for modern times. Most notable is the word 'rache'; in "A Study in Scarlet" Holmes suggests the victim was trying to write the name 'Rachel', later realiz
  • Episode 02 - The grocery store where Watson has an argument with the self-service checkout machine is Asda.
  • Episode 02 - Amanda, the secretary, is played by Olivia Poulet, who was in a 12 year relationship with Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) at the time of filming.
  • Episode 03 - SPOILER: The television in the diner states that Connie Prince found dead at 48 but Lestrade states in the next scene that she was 54.
  • Episode 01 - Sherlock kissing Mrs. Hudson on the cheek wasn't scripted. Benedict Cumberbatch had known Una Stubbs since he was very young, and it was his reaction on being able to work with someone who was like a mother to him.
