The Reichenbach Fall-owers

Prospect has THE most absurdly delightful account of the seventy-odd "pilgrims" who journey to Meiringen, Switzerland in order to recreate Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Final Problem":

When I re-emerge, I am next to a tall man who tells me his name is Olaf Maurer. He twinkles. Actually, he says, his name is Baron Von Herling. Again: I am not clear as to which is real, which fantasy. He is president of the German Sherlock Holmes Society. He was pleased to meet Queen Victoria, he says. I’m struck by a paradox, which I dare not share: that he looks to me the most like Sherlock Holmes of anyone here.

I ask him if we are indeed eating schnitzel.

But again, I get no clear reply because now people are starting to sing. It is a song I recognise and don’t recognise. Von Herling shouts through the confusion and the uproar: it’s called “Moriarty’s Lament.” The tune, though, is “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.”

“My body lies under the water
Immersed at the foot of the Fall
If only I’d done what I oughter…”

It's not just a "aw, look at these charming goofballs!" either, you guys, it really tries to figure out why Sherlock Holmes ("the most often depicted fictional character on screen of all time") has such a grip on our hearts.

Unsuccessfully trying to recover from the suckerpunch of sadness that was the season 2 Sherlock finale...nope, still sad.

@The Attic Wife I have been unable to rewatch "The Reichenbach Fall" because Martin Freeman repeatedly breaks my heart in that episode and I can't handle it.

Martin Freeman, man...

@Dancercise Oh man, that scene in the cemetery.

@The Attic Wife Between Sherlock on the roof and Watson in the cemetery, it's the pinnacle of wonderful and heart-wrenching. CAN WE HAVE SERIES 3 ALREADY, MOFFAT?!?

HydrogenJukebox

@The Attic Wife (Just gonna sit here and thumbs-up everything to do with everything in this thread. Don't mind me.)

The Attic Wife

@Lexa Lane Guh. Martin Freeman just breaks my heart into itty-bitty pieces. And when Sherlock's on the roof and he's reaching for John and John's on the street and he's reaching for Sherlock...JEEZ. I thought crying!Granada Watson was the end-all, be-all, then there was stoic-but-heartbroken!Law Watson, but Martin Freeman takes the cake.

WHY MUST WE WAIT FOR SERIES 3?!

Lexa Lane

@The Attic Wife And now we must apparently wait LONGER: http://www.themarysue.com/sherlock-season-3-delayed/

I was pretty sure we wouldn't get it before 2014, but now it's confirmed, and I may need to go throw something. Even though I'm really excited about The Hobbit.

The Golden Pass Line is not one single train journey. You have to change trains at least twice between Lucerne and Montreux. The reason for the train changes is that the track between Lucerne and Interlaken is narrow gauge. carpet cleaning shropshire

Some of the trains on this part have the locomotive in the middle of the train. This means that the front coach has eight seats at the front, there the train driver normally sits. These seats cost extra and must be booked in advance. Man and Van Manchester
