About the "Sherlock" BBC Quotes
Fans of "Sherlock" are a creative bunch, creating all manner of Sherlock fan fiction and funny Sherlock/ Watson videos while they wait for the show's third season to start.
One clever fan put the video at the top of the screen together. It contains some of funniest quotes from "Sherlock" on the web. It's a 10-minute celebration of all the detective's most sardonic, witty, sassy and funny quips and quotes. I thought it a fitting look back on this New Year's Eve not only to help us send out the old year, but to celebrate the new season and the coming of 2014.
I've included a few BBC "Sherlock" quotes in the article to get you started, but you'll want to watch the video to get the full effect and hear all the quotes. After all, anyone who watches "Sherlock" knows that much of the humor in the show lies in the interplay between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the shows leads (Sherlock and Watson, respectively).
