This picture is so totally fucking with my mind: Mycroft takes his parents to the movies…no wait…
Thinking of it as Mark Gatiss taking Benedict’s parents to the movies is a bit of a mindfuck as well.
A few times I’ve cried while writing something. And that sequence there [Sherlock’s best man speech], I was blubbing (sic). The sad stuff doesn’t make me cry when I write it, because I know I’m being manipulative. But a simple declaration of devotion in the manner of the man who simply decided, “That is what you do.” He’s read it in a book: “You state how you feel about your friend.” Right. Will do that. And he does it with forensic perfection. So it kills you when it happens. It’s tremendously powerful. And it’s very key to the character of Sherlock Holmes because he has no shame in admitting that he can feel that way. When he likes people, he’s perfectly happy to like them. It’s just that he doesn’t like very many.
