Anonymous asked:

Suddenly I find it funny that Sherlock Holmes, The man who DIDN'T KNOW THAT THE EARTH GOES AROUND THE SUN, Or WHO the PRIME MINISTER was, knew Hansel and Gretel in it's seeming entirety. I doubt he learned the story from skimming through the book, where the pages weren't even fully opened. Do you think this might be one of the things that Moffat means by Sherlock doing something he doesn't normally do?

finalproblem answered:

The whole thing with Sherlock not knowing about basic facts like the workings of the solar system was straight out of the original stories.

A Study in Scarlet:

His ignorance was as remarkable as his knowledge. Of contemporary literature, philosophy and politics he appeared to know next to nothing. Upon my quoting Thomas Carlyle, he inquired in the naivest way who he might be and what he had done. My surprise reached a climax, however, when I found incidentally that he was ignorant of the Copernican Theory and of the composition of the Solar System. That any civilized human being in this nineteenth century should not be aware that the earth travelled round the sun appeared to be to me such an extraordinary fact that I could hardly realize it.

“You appear to be astonished,” he said, smiling at my expression of surprise. “Now that I do know it I shall do my best to forget it.”

“To forget it!”

“You see,” he explained, “I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skilful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.”

“But the Solar System!” I protested.

“What the deuce is it to me?” he interrupted impatiently; “you say that we go round the sun. If we went round the moon it would not make a pennyworth of difference to me or to my work.”

It was a funny reference to canon, and they even worked it into the plot with the whole Van Buren Supernova bit.

But by The Hounds of Baskerville, they’d obviously decided that Sherlock needed to make a little more room in his brain-attic/mind palace. He even knew the lyrics to an Elvis song.

I think Sherlock knows exactly what the writers want him to know exactly when they want him to know it, and I never consider that out-of-character.

And technically, I’m not sure Sherlock did know Hansel and Gretel in its entirety. Sherlock made the connection to the story after John showed him the breadcrumbs. The trail of breadcrumbs is the commonly known part of the story, but before Hansel used that trick he left a trail of pebbles that glowed under the moonlight. That’s a lot like what had just happened with Sherlock finding the glowing footprints under the blacklight, yet he didn’t stop to consider that it was odd the little boy they picked to kidnap just happened to do the same thing as the little boy in the story.

When I first saw this scene I was surprised that Mind Palace Moriarty listed Irene as one of the people who would cry over Sherlock’s death (I figured it would make more sense to include Molly in that slot).  However, after mulling it over, I concluded that there’s a deeper meaning to it.  When you consider who these people are to Sherlock or what they symbolically represent, this list has a pattern. 

First, Jim mentions Mrs. Hudson.  Mrs. Hudson has always been like a surrogate mother to Sherlock and, up until S3, she was the only mother figure in Sherlock’s life that we knew about.  So you could say that Mrs. Hudson is symbolic of parental love and affection.  Next on Jim’s list are Sherlock’s actual parents; they are the literal representation of parental love.

Then, the camera angle changes—this change further emphasizes how everyone is paired off (Mrs. Hudson/Sherlock’s parents, Irene/John)—and Jim lists Irene who, as many others have pointed out, is often the symbolic representation of romantic love and sex.  So, if we continue the pattern of symbolic love followed by literal love, what does John represent?
