"I never felt like she needed to be rescued by Sherlock. I think it was more a testament to the effect that she’d had on him that he risked everything to go and save her. I think it says more about his character and the journey he went on from meeting her than it says about her, because actually, she was saying “Goodbye Sherlock Holmes”. She was sitting there ready to die, it was the end of the road for her.”

We had reached Baker Street and had stopped at the door. He was still searching his pockets for the key when someone passing said:
"Good-night Mister Sherlock Holmes."
There were several people on the pavement at the time, but the greeting appeared to come from a slim youth in an ulster who had hurried by.
"I’ve heard that voice before," said Holmes, staring down the dimly-lit street. "Now I wonder who the deuce that could have been."
He’s writing sad music; doesn’t eat; barely talks – only to correct the television. I’d say he was heartbroken but, er, well, he’s Sherlock. He does all that anyway…
Oh, a power play. A power play with the most powerful family in Britain. Now that is a dominatrix. Ooh, this is getting rather fun, isn’t it?
"It’s not very often you’re standing there in next to nothing with a leather whip in your hand, having a go at Benedict Cumberbatch. I did say at every opportunity, ‘Do you need me to ease off?’ and he was like, ‘No! Go for it! Go for it!’" — Lara Pulver
