Amongst the detailed look at the inception of Sherlock as a television series, the Royal Television Society event Sherlock: Anatomy of a Hit on Tuesday 4 March 2014 gave attendees the chance to hear the show’s creators reveal their favourite scenes from all three series, with the sequences played on the big screen. While the event was video recorded for release via the RTS website in the next week, we thought you might like to find out everyone’s favourite moments in advance.
Steven Moffat – The opening sequence of The Empty Hearse, because “Sherlock kisses Molly!” (stated with mock emotion, for the record).
Mark Gatiss – the concluding scenes of A Scandal in Belgravia, where Sherlock asks John for Irene’s phone. Mark also says the episode is his favourite overall.
Sue Vertue – Irene’s boomerang deduction from A Scandal in Belgravia, because of the ingenuity of the bed rising into shot.
Amanda Abbington – Sherlock and Jim’s confrontation over a cup of tea at 221B in The Reichenbach Fall.
Ben Stephenson (Drama Controller, BBC One) – the reveal of Moriarty’s identity at the swimming pool in The Great Game.
Tom Sutcliffe (Panel host) – The point where Sherlock’s best man speech turns from car-crash to heartfelt in The Sign of Three.
