15. Yes. Drunk Sherlock’s drunk deductions were undeniably the best.

BBC

“Egg… sitty thing?”

16. Although some people thought they spotted a similarity to another TV character.

Wait, this is just a modern reboot of Mitchell & Webb’s Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, right? #sherlock

44. But lots of people are concerned that everything’s been much too lighthearted and that therefore the Hammer of Tears is about to come crashing down.
