The World Believes In Sherlock Holmes [SPOILERS!]

No, not Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. I'm talking about Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Fans of the BBC series Sherlock have taken to the streets after the "death" of the only consulting detective in the world and the sight of a depressed John Watson.

Most people have made fanart for the situation such as Reapersun has.

There are a variety of posters that have been made about the fandom's movement.

Fans all over the world in places like Lithuania, Milan, London(obviously), Japan, and all over the street lamps, crosswalks, and schools in America.

On twitter, there are people confused about the movement, but most are supportive by making posts about the situation.

Some people have made shirts with different sayings.

Most people have also taken up the liberty to buy, produce, or make their own stickers to spread the movement in places like the Burger King that this was placed in.

I'm guessing you could consider this harmless vandalism.

Someone in the original poster's school has taken up the chance to vandalise a wall with the hashtag.

A group of people have put up posters(that had to be taken down) at the London flat where they film the show.

This is my small contribution to the movement.

The Sherlock fandom is probably most involved on the internet, but a lot of people are happy to see that it's been integrated into the real world. As far as we know, the creators or actors involved with Sherlock have no idea what's going on.
