Felix Mendelssohn’s Song without words, one of Dr. John Watson’s favourite pieces.

 “I see that I have eluded above to his powers upon the violin. These were very remarkable, but as eccentric as all his other accomplishments. That he could play pieces, and difficult pieces, I knew well, because at my request he has played me some of Mendelssohn’s Lieder and other favourites. When left to himself, however, he would seldom produce any music or attempt any recognizing air. Leaning back in his armchair of an evening, he would close his eyes and scrape carelessly at the fiddle which was thrown across his knee. Sometimes the chords were sonorous and melancholy. Occasionally they were fantastic and cheerful. Clearly they reflected the thoughts which possessed him, but whether the music aided those thoughts, or whether playing was simply the result of a whim or fancy, was more than I could determine. I might have rebelled against those exasperating solos had it not been that he usually terminated them by playing in quick succession a whole series of my favourite airs as a slight compensation for the trial upon my patience.”

A Study in Scarlet

The “Lieder” refers to Felix Mendelssohn’s “Lider ohne Worte,” which means “song without words.” Mendelssohn’s songs without words are recognized for their romanticism. 

#because I’m so romantic today #and can’t help but imagine Holmes playing this piece on the violin for Watson #don’t you? #♥

Thank you for this. :)

I couldn’t see Martin’s face [during filming] obviously,” said Cumberbatch, “he was just a little blob on the pavement, waiting for a bigger blob to land by his feet… [but later] it was really wonderful to see what he’d done on the other end of that phone conversation - I could hear it [at the time] but to see it was really, really, really moving and, him being in shock afterwards, it’s ridiculous but it made me cry.

Greg had no idea that copies of the Police Charity Calendar he had agreed to pose for as a young constable were still in circulation…

And that Mycroft owned four of them.

“Yes, I did say before that Sherlock was the most perfect
machine for observation and deduction; however, there
was once a day when we finished the case in a scrap factory,
the sunlight of the dawn shines down on him.
Sherlock, who has always been so desperate for the truth
of everything, did nothing but just stand there still, and then
he reached out his hand like he was trying to hold the
sunlight…for me, at that moment, he was merely a child.”
