What’s funny about this is that in Star Trek he’s quoting Sherlock Holmes, but in Sherlock he’s quoting Spock.
Although the original quote was from Sherlock Holmes. It was used in TOS and then in Star Trek (2009) as a reference to SH. Then in Sherlock 2x02, Sherlock says it and John calls him ‘Spock’ as though it’s a reference to Star Trek and Wibbly Wobbly Inception of the quote, yo.
Canonically Spock is a descendant of Sherlock Holmes.
Wait, really? ^^^^
Yep. Star Trek 6 Spock says “An ancestor of mine once said ‘If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains however improbable must be the truth.”
“It was a perfect tragedy. John fell in love with a boy named Sherlock. One day, in the bliss of their relationship, John came here to ask Sherlock’s brother for his permission to marry his brother. Someone broke into the club and shot everyone… John died. Sherlock killed himself, not long after. They’re both gone now, or they were at least. It all sounds a bit spooky… we better call the Winchesters.”
AU: Clara and the Doctor encounter John Watson’s ghost.
Proof that BBC only has one set area.
I think this is supposed to give me feelings, but I’m too busy laughing.
