The Game is On With 10 ‘Sherlock’ Facts For Your Mind Palace
The BBC’s Sherlock has plenty of Doctor Who in its blood between creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, but did you know Matt Smith even auditioned for the role of Watson? Or that Amanda Abbington (Mary) is Martin Freeman’s real-life partner? Flip your collar and swish that coat, as the 34th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ hits the streets of London to detect some elementary facts from Sherlock.
Both Moffat and Gatiss came up with the idea for Sherlock on a train to the Doctor Who set, though a few concessions needed to be made to bring the world’s foremost detective to the modern day. Filming too can get a bit tricky, as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman had to work around their mutual commitments to The Hobbit for Season 2.
