I think that Sherlock/Sheldon and John/Leonard are a lot alike somehow. I mean, Sherlock and Sheldon are clearly both geniuses but yet so different… For example, Sherlock can read your whole lifestory just by observing your clothes, but Sheldon can’t even tell if you’re happy, sad, or angry. And Sheldon, who’s a brilliant physicist, knows everything about the functioning of the universe, but Sherlock doesn’t even know that the Earth goes around the Sun… Anyway, I would give anything to see a crossover between TBBT and Sherlock!!
So last night I had a dream that Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Scott were doing it in the bathtub. Ben was turning off the water, and he turned around and Andrew was just lying in the tub, naked, like, ‘hey ben’. Please help my sanity.
Martin’s grandfather, Leonard Freeman, was a medic in the 150th Field Ambulance, and died in France on May 24, 1940, just days before the evacuation of Dunkirk. Martin is meeting at Wenlock Barracks with Captain Peter Starling of the Royal Army Medical Corps to learn more about his grandfather’s death.
Watch this documentary on Youtube. Gifs cannot convey how incredibly moved Martin was by what he read and saw.

“I like this picture. And it’s only - the only one of that series. You know, usually you think you might have ten; just one. But, you know, he was a Pisces and he liked to be around water and he’s up to his neck in water. And I think that’s very apropos.” - Olivia Harrison, WNYC interview conducted by Leonard Lopate, 4 November 2011
