Unfriended - S7-E11

Character mistake: Odin Reichenbach talks to Sherlock about "doing the irrevocable", but pronounces it "irrevOWEcable." It should be pronounced "irrevacable" in both British and American English. He's supposed to be a highly intelligent, highly educated person - not a mistake he should make.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily. A lot of people have strange vocal tics where they pronounce a certain word in a certain way, usually without even realizing it. My grandfather was a smart guy, and he always mis-pronounced "toilet" as "ter-let."


While You Were Sleeping - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Sherlock was slapped, he later says he was surprised because the girl who slapped him was a "lefty." Then he rubs his right cheek and says it's leathery from all the slaps he's gotten, while the left is soft. This is backwards - anyone hitting him with their right hand would hit his left cheek.

Trivia: When Mycroft mentions a conversation between Sherlock and their father that he once overheard, the content of said conversation is how Sherlock describes Mycroft to Watson in "The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter."
