But can we please just take a moment and give a huge round of applause to Benedict Cumberbatch? That episode must have been incredibly hard to do. It was literally one extended monologue by Sherlock that had to be memorized, and performed, and emotionally executed, take after take after take. Not to mention all the scenes in-between. To be able to take on a work load like that and turn out such an amazing product is astounding and deserves every award.
