great work.But forgive me because i failed to understand whats so special about the the 'c' sound.how is it so charming that you fangirl over it.tell me.

Sherlock (or perhaps I should say Benedict) occasionally loudly clicks the 'k' sound at the end of a word, for example in this episode instead of saying, "enigmatic" he says "enigmatiC". I mention this habit (and flail over it) in all three episodes of Season 1, and occasionally in Season 2. To my great disappointment, I haven't found a single k-click in Season 3.

I don't know why I like it so much. He clearly does it deliberately rather than accidentally, and I just like his choice to put a strong emphasis on the end of words occasionally. He also does it with the 't' sound sometimes, but personally I'm a k-click girl!

It just make me wibble every time I hear it. I like it so much that I wrote a short fic about it.

First of all: Thank you so much for all your great work!!!
It's highly appreciated.
And second: Please excuse my English. ;-)

I think I know what the "blank bullets" are referring too. They shoot blank bullets in the museum. They didn't want to kill Sherlock resp John (they think he's Sherlock already at this time.)
That's quite clear bc there is a manuscript of the whole episode before it was filmed and there the monologue from Shan is quite longer and she explains this.
And I think they cut it after that bc they have to cut always something and this remained in the cut version. And suddenly it doesn't make sense anymore. If you want to I could you send the uncut manuscript version?

Thank you for your kind words!

And suddenly it doesn't make sense anymore.

Oh, a whole lot of this episode doesn't make sense! That's why I get so annoyed with it whenever I watch - large portions of the plot are simply rubbish!

I have a copy of the draft script, and I realise that Shan explains the blank bullets better in there, but unfortunately we have to rely on what we actually see in the episode. I've also had to talk about whether the characters can hear the drum beat or not - all in all, I fear that this episode was poorly written and it wasn't edited very well either.

Thanks so much for your comments! It's always interesting to be told/reminded about background information like this.

You're welcome! I'm glad you're enjoying the series.

Thank you so much! As many times as I've watched all three seasons, there are still so many things I miss. I just read this because I couldn't figure out what John was saying when he says "chip and PIN machine" I'm American and we call that the self check-out. I still don't get the chip part of it… :/

Also, the comments led me to the stuff you have on AO3 so that's cool too!

'Chip' refers to the microchip inside the debit/credit card. I guess that when this new technology first came out, the makers wanted to make it clear that the machine read the chip and then double-verified the card with the PIN.

I hadn't realised until now that this is yet another example of this series being rather Brit-centric in its use of language!

Most American cards are just switching to chips right now actually! My first experience with them was this summer in the Canadian Rockies where the waiters brought the card machine to you at the table instead of walking away with your card to swipe it. And store clerks would stick the credit card into the machine and frown until I explained it was an American card and then they swiped it down the side. Then a couple months later, at home, a new credit card comes in the mail with a chip embedded and some of the stores have new card readers.
