A Study in Pink - S1-E1

Trivia: A study in pink has many similarities to the original Sherlock Holmes story A study in Scarlet - which is set in the late nineteenth century. In both stories, Watson is introduced to Holmes by a mutual friend after returning from fighting in Afghanistan, a body is found in an empty house, the killer is a hansom/taxi driver who is dying of an embolism and his method of killing is to force the victim to choose between a poison tablet and harmless one.

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sherlock is backstage at the circus and finds the yellow spray paint, he draws a line on the mirror. In the next shot, the line he drew is completely different (and in fact is more of a squiggle). (01:07:40)

Sherlock Holmes: Punch me in the face.
John Watson: Punch you?
