Sherlock pilot titbits
After I rewatch all the Sherlock, I decided to start again with the pilot episode and noticed three things that wasn’t in TSIP.
1. Before Speedy’s there was Mrs Hudson little shop, imagine if that made it to TSIP. Neither John or Sherlock would have to worry about food and dinner, Mrs Hudson would’ve make sure her boys were well fed.
2. The cab driver originally took Sherlock back to Baker Street where their little showdown of minds went down, also where John shot him. I think they took that out, because if Mycroft had Baker Street under surveillance, he would’ve known his little brother is in serious trouble.
3. Papa Lestrade most definitely knew John shot the cabbie. In the pilot he looks on as they walked away (into the sunset) with a knowing smile and ripped out the page where Sherlock described the shooter.
And above all else I think this is one of the saddest things they removed, because not only does it clearly show Greg to be smarter than they say, and he genuinely cares for Sherlock if he let’s John walk away.
I don’t think Lestrade gets all the credit and acknowledgement he definitely deserves.
