BBC Sherlock - Fan Forum / Sherlock Holmes Canon Quiz - 29th June 2012 - Boardhost Free Forums OK, sorry for being a bit late on posting the answers, I was in London yesterday (again). So here are the correct answers I was looking for:1.

A Mycroftian Manifesto How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Mycroft As a writer and general all-purpose fangirl, I often find myself falling in love with characters while the source material looks on disapprovingly. Criminals and cads, serial killers and sociopaths---they’re hardly the kind of men I can see bringing home to my mother. When I’m not romancing complete scoundrels, I have a terrible weakness for minor characters. Sherlock (TV series) I'm Sherlock Holmes, the world's only consulting detective.

Or GPS, for that matter?)
MoraMori Tea “Another very spicy Sherlock-inspired tea, with just a hint of smoke and sweetness. In the bag, the caramel and chocolate are barely noticeable, but it makes it all the more enticing.

It's delightful in the morning for that little extra buzz to get you going, whether you have a building to blow up, or an assassination to carry out.
