“Sherlock” Special – trailer transcript

For anyone struggling with the dialogue, here’s a quick transcript of the spoken words only. The trailer itself is widely available online.



Transcript by Ariane DeVere aka Callie Sullivan. (Last updated 10 July 2015)

MRS HUDSON: Mr Holmes, I do wish you’d let me know when you’re planning to come home.
SHERLOCK: I hardly knew myself, Mrs Hudson. That’s the trouble with dismembered country squires – they’re notoriously difficult to schedule.
ARCHIE: What’s in there?
JOHN: Never mind.
SHERLOCK (to the cabbie): Thank you.
ARCHIE: Did you catch a murderer, Mr Holmes?
SHERLOCK: Caught the murderer; still looking for the legs. Think we’ll call it a draw.
MRS HUDSON: And I notice you’ve published another of your stories, Dr Watson.
JOHN: Yes. Did you enjoy it?
MRS HUDSON: No.
JOHN: Oh?
MRS HUDSON: I never enjoy them.
JOHN: Why not?
MRS HUDSON: Well, I never say anything, do I? According to you, I just show people up the stairs and serve you breakfasts.
JOHN: Well, in the narrative, that is – broadly speaking – your function.
MRS HUDSON: My what?!
SHERLOCK: Don’t feel singled out, Mrs Hudson. I’m hardly in the dog one.
JOHN: “The dog one”?!
MRS HUDSON: I’m your landlady, not a plot device.
JOHN (to Sherlock): Do you mean ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’?!
MRS HUDSON: You make the room so drab and dingy.
JOHN: Oh, blame it on the illustrator. He’s out of control. I’ve had to grow this moustache just so people’ll recognise me.

Oh thank you!!!

I'd never have caught the bit about "...still looking for the legs, think we'll call it a draw" *chortle*

Brilliant script, as always.

Wonder when they mean by "soon...ish"?

*waits im patiently*

Many thanks!

hah, I repeated this vid few times and I thought the conversation was John and Mrs Hudson commiserate together regarding Sherlock's treatment to them. Apparently, the complaint about 'show people up the stairs and serve you breakfasts' and 'dog' was regarding John's writing.

Thanks Ariane for this beautiful transcript.I was trying to listen very hard what was about moustache John was saying there.
