I am sooo glad I found your transcripts! Being brand new to Sherlock universe (well, better later than never...) and a non-native English speaker, I would have been content with any random transcript that helped me understand what was going on. And I understand just how much work would it have been to type "only" what the characters say.
But then, as a very special added bonus, I could read your detailed descriptions and hilarious comments made with a cute - indulgent yet self-reflective - fangirlish point of view that is so familiar to me :-)
I just finished watching the first season with your help, my family does not know why I giggled so much during watching :-) Popped in to say a big THANK YOU, and looking forward to the next seasons ;-)

Thank you for such a lovely note! I'm glad the transcripts have been useful to you. Enjoy the rest of the seasons!

No, really, wow. Excellent work. It's obvious you've put a lot of time and effort into these.

I love that I'm able to go back and experience an episode again, even when I don't have time to watch it (which is pretty much always, sadly). And of course it helps with the fic :)

Your comments and descriptions always make my day. It feels so much more human than a plain ol' script. And of course, being a non-Brit, your footnotes and references are always super helpful.

Thanks again for all you do.

Thank you for such lovely comments! It's always nice to know that the transcripts are helpful. Also I'm glad you find the explanations of the very British bits useful, and enjoy the asides. Even writing up such interesting episodes, I can still get a bit bored/tired at times, and writing occasionally snarky/shippy asides keeps me awake!

SHERLOCK: No, no, no! Of course he’s not the boy’s father! (He gestures at the screen.) Look at the turn-ups on his jeans!

I think it's supposed to say genes. I Don't really understand the sentence, but I thought something having to do with being someone else's father would be related to genes.

No, it's definitely "jeans." Turn-ups are where you roll up the bottom of the legs because they're too long. Sherlock is claiming that the guy rolls up the bottoms of his jean legs in such a way that he can't possibly be the child's father. Moftiss love including little deductions like that without explaining them.
17th-Jun-2016 07:14 pm (UTC)
Oh I'm afraid not. The humour of that moment is that Sherlock has deduced that the man isn't the father simply because of the trousers he's wearing and the fact that the bottoms are turned up. Only Sherlock Holmes could make such a bizarre deduction.

And I've never heard of genes having turn-ups.

Hi! I was wondering, I think I read somewhere that John blinks out a morse code at the very beginning of the pool scene, to let Sherlock know that he is being taken hostage. I thought maybe you would want to add that. :)
I love these transcripts btw!! It must be so much work, but I sometimes come here to look up a certain phrase or to remember who said what, when. And then I am very greatful for your effort! Great job!!

He didn't blink in Morse. This was a rumour started on the internet because he happened to blink three times quickly and then three times more slowly before the camera cut away to another angle, and some people wondered whether he was blinking the first two letters of "SOS."

It was later confirmed that Martin didn't do this deliberately; he was just blinking.

i'm writing a jim x sherlock fanfic on wattpad and would love to do this scene in particular for one of the openers. if i give full credit and leave links, may i use this?

If you're incorporating words spoken by the characters, they don't belong to me, and only Mark Gatiss can make a complaint about it! But it seems very unlikely that he will ... ;-)

As long as you're not planning to take my descriptions verbatim, you're always welcome to use my transcripts as reference and to check wording and the way the scene progressed. A credit and a link back would be lovely, thank you!

thank you! I'll leave a link and credit :)
11th-Jul-2017 01:53 pm (UTC) - The Missile Plans
I could be wrong but during the Pool Scene where Sherlock gives Moriarty the missile plans, and Moriarty exclaims, "the missile plans," John overhears this and murmurs the same thing to himself because Sherlock told him that he gave the missile plans back to Mycroft. It's hard to notice but his lips seem to move as though he's saying "missile plans?" but I'm not a lip reader by any means. I noticed you put that John does this because he's probably winding himself up or trying to stay focused. He's just probably surprised that Sherlock lied to him about the whereabouts of the missile plans.
12th-Jul-2017 08:10 am (UTC) - Re: The Missile Plans
Ooh, that's an interesting theory! I'll have a look at that as soon as I can. I seem to remember that he mumbles to himself for longer than just those three words but you could be right that he says them and then continues to mumble, perhaps complaining to himself about Sherlock lying to him.

Thanks for pointing that out. Once I've had time to check the footage, I may make appropriate edits.
