    Final prediction day has arrived, some relevant how the heck he faked his death images.

    The basic solution has got to be that Sherlock totally owned the street. The cyclist, the laundry truck driver, the people who surrounded the body were all Sherlock's Baker Street Runners / Homeless Network. The elderly lady was instructed to make sure Watson did not take a pulse properly.

    Watson did not see Sherlock fall and hit the pavement at full speed. Two main solutions - the suggestibility / fear enhancing chemical warfare agent from the Baskerville research establishment was administered to Watson OR who/what Watson saw wasn't Sherlock.

    One of the loose ends is the kidnapped child was terrified when she saw Sherlock. Presumably Moriarty or an associate disguised themselves to look like Sherlock.

    There are several possible levels of involvement for Molly, suggesting ways Sherlock could stop his pulse, providing a trolley and hospital gowns to the Baker Street Runners, tampering with postmortem results.

    Sherlock could have walked down the stairs with Molly chucking the fake Sherlock off the roof or Sherlock could have chucked the fake and then jumped onto laundry bags.

    We just rewatched the first 6 episodes on Christmas day and then watched the new one last night! So glad to have it back!

    Interesting anecdote about the Hounds of Baskerville episode:

    I live about 20 minutes from Liberty, Indiana. There is not much there but a small town with a couple decent restaurants. There is a state park just outside Liberty. I don't know how they plucked that location out to be a secret CIA location. Maybe it really is, who knows!

    Perhaps a thread for the show (haven't watched yet) rather than making me really nervous to open this thread :)

    No. Can't open a thread until it airs in the US.

    This is a thread about the minisode, so anyone even THINKING of a spoiler for the new series needs to run away now! ;)

    I do not think it is a spoiler but if you are not aware of a particular English tradition it it could help you to know:
    On November 5th, Bonfire Night, an effigy of Guy Fawkes is burned and fireworks ignited. In the days before Bonfire Night children collect money in the street to buy fireworks using the cry "Penny for the Guy".

    Are the episodes shown on PBS exactly the same as those shown on BBC1, or are they edited for time, or some other reason.

    I'm not sure about this. The version the BBC showed was 90 minutes long, I believe. Once the guide data is available for the PBS broadcast, we might be able to figure it out. My best guess right now is that if the PBS version is scheduled for 90 minutes, then they would need to edit Sherlock for time, in order to fit in an introduction and those stupid not-commercials for European river cruises. If it's scheduled for 2 hours, then I'd assume Sherlock is shown in its entirety.

    The episode that I downloaded was 86 minutes long.

    The instruction was to start a thread in the UK forum but I thought one of the funniest little things I've seen for a long time was .......... small joke spoiler.

    Sherlock: ffffff
    Watson: Cough
