Sherlock BBC Prompting Meme

"we get all sorts around here."

Very weird

This is a rant, and if it's misplaced then my apologies to anyone offended. Okay, now I'm officially confused regarding spoilers. Several people here are asking for HLV spoilers and no one replied to them, then I check out Amanda Abbington's twitter account and she's calling out a certain tumblr for posting spoilers. Which meant I ran there and read the spoilers before the tumblr was apparently taken down. There's another one with spoilers right now, but this is actually not what I wanted to ask about. What I wanted to ask about was this: The tumblr posting spoilers received a livid message from another tumblr, and when I went there I read the weirdest stuff I've ever come across in a long while! The anti-spoiler tumblr said, "... Amanda said she didn’t want them on Tumblr at all" and also "... Real fans of Sherlock know not to cross Amanda and to respect her and the writers wishes of not spoiling it". Excuse me? Real fans of Sherlock? Not even Benedict or Martin have anyone going that real fans of Sherlock know not to cross them, and they're the two main stars of the show! I don't understand what's going on and I certainly have nothing against Amanda Abbington as a person or an actress -- in fact she was sublime in both Sherlock episodes -- but for a tumblr to say "real" fans know not to cross her and for her to call out spoilery tumblrs and not this ridiculous anti-spoilery tumblr... It's too weird. I'm not going to divulge the spoilers I read here although my fellow spoiler-loving people have my sympathy, because until further notice I'm certainly going to beware the wrath of the supporting actress who only joined the show in its third season!

Re: Very weird

People on tumblr have a tendency towards overreaction,so I wouldn't trust their words.
Usually, there are special forums or threads (like this one) for people who want to discuss spoilers,as not to,well,spoil, people who don't
If the person who posted the spoilers on tumblr without tagging them as such or giing a warning,them some people who didn't want to read them,may have read them,which would have caused the anger and livid messages you talked about.
When it comes to Amanda. Well,I don´t have twitter,but from what other fans have told me, her tweets were her warning someone had posted the spoilers on tumblr, for people who didn't want to read them. I doubt she would have used the words "real Sherlock fans".

If I had a gif of Ace Ventura saying "Holy shitballs," I'd use that as my reaction to that entire episode.
>>>> Mary. Like whoa.

Kid!Lock made me wibble though.






In the original series Jon's wife Mary dies and he moves back in with Sherlock - Will this happen in the bbc version or did they circumvent it by having her assume the identity of a deceased child?
