Mmmm. He’s so yummy!
Why did I have to fall in love with a show that has THREE episodes?
I have no ideas….
For those outside the UK!
I think I’m in angst-avoidance mode, because all I can think is ‘awesome, look at John’s GQMF new suit. Hello.’
John’s suit…and the look on Sherlock’s face when John’s getting himself ready in the mirror.
Dear Christ, though. This episode is going to kill me.
Do forgive me for hacking into your blog.
See you soon, boys!
This is full version!
YES the full version fuck oh shit oh fuxk dfj
This is what blind, fervent arousal feels like oh shit fuck ohhgjgmn
How long did it take you to develop your take on Moriarty?
“I didn’t really work it out - it was very well-written. We had a day to shoot the swimming pool stuff, so there was quite a lot of time to play around with it. It was very important to me that he would be playful. I didn’t really work out too much how he was going to be, apart from knowing that he needed to be funny and scary!
“What tends to happen sometimes is that you plan a little bit too much. You wrap up what you’re going to do with a nice little bow and it’s all prepared. [But] I think an audience can really sense if something’s thought out a little bit too much.
“I tried not to worry about previous incarnations of Moriarty, because of the very fact that my physical appearance and my age [is so different].”
Do you have an idea of what Moriarty’s motivation is?
“I have a not-quite-formed idea. I don’t really go too much in for back-story but the thing that is important to me is I don’t feel I’m playing a villain. You have to look into yourself - what sort of way I would be as a ‘villain’ rather than try to copy someone else’s version of a villain.
“It’s very easy when you’re playing these sort of iconic characters to - even subconsciously - copy another actor. So the only way you can ever really be original is to think, ‘What would I do?’
“But to answer your question, in this series, I think it’s important [that we] see lots of different shades within him. The challenge in the last series was to fit that storyline and now in this one, it’s to maintain things and keep him surprising. Like all terrifying people, there has to be a reason [for his actions].”
