Always love to see how people will react when the subject pops up. We were watching Sherlock on PBS last night, a modern interpretation of the Sherlock Holmes myth set in 21st century London. It's brilliant.
I'll cut to the chase ...
One of the victims tried to scrawl the word "Rachel" into the wooden floor with her fingernails as she was dying. The police do a little research and find that she had a stillborn child fourteen years ago named Rachel. LaStrade, Holmes and Watson are at the crime scene, trying to deduce the significance of this clue, and how it relates to the murder suspect, who has been somehow driving people to kill themselves.
Watson: Maybe he talks to them, maybe he used the death of her daughter somehow....Brilliant.
Sherlock: That was ages ago, why would she still be upset?
(Everyone in the room is shocked into silence, which takes Holmes a brief moment to comprehend. He walks over to Watson.)
Sherlock: (quietly) Not good?
Watson: Bit of not good, yeah.
