I haven’t re-watched Sherlock since that HLV aired mostly because I wanted the general hubbub about the show to die down before I watched it again. I wanted to make my own mind up about the third series in the similar way to series two which I have to confess I was initially more than a little ambivalent about.
With that in mind I haven’t read any of the articles, cast or writer interviews or meta about the show I just didn’t want to be influenced by other peoples reading of the series. Unfortunately doing that hasn’t completely worked and recently there has been a lot of rather angry discussion about many things I’ve found disquieting including shipping and the johnlock conspiracy which has left me feeling disaffected
So I’ve decided to limit my exposure to the fandom and for the most part get off tumblr for the next 23 days after that I will start watching Sherlock again. I plan after that to start blogging about my reaction to and analysis of all 10 episodes I’ll also be doing a 30 days of Sherlock Challenge while I do this.
See you on the 13th of May
