Fuck Yeah, Sherlock.

A blog for the BBC mini-series Sherlock.

eatprayplay said: Hello, my dears! Tomorrow -- or rather, today is Sherlock and I'm trying out the tunnelbear like you recommended. I downloaded the program, then went to BBC iplayer to test it and alas, it still knows I'm from the U.S. I'm sure I've missed something obvious but please help. My fangirling depends on you.

This may sound like a I’m just taking the piss, but you might have to switch it on.  There are two dials on the TunnelBear dashboard: US/UK and ON/OFF.  Give it a second once you’ve checked that they’re where they should be.

Completely inspired by Red Scharlach’s Sher-Choc poster. I wholeheartedly bow down to his/her greatness. *bows*
Finally finished. :D I unfortunately had to leave out the Nougatine Patch, Shotgun Smiley and Dismember Mint due to lack of ingredients, but I’ve added four more to make it up. They are the Mycrunches, Molly Mixes, Herbal Soothers and Andersaur Jellies. No sweeties based on Donovan, unfortunately - the only thing I could think of for her was Anderson’s floors. XD
Sherlock Swirl - Chocolate swirl with ginger cream filling.
Johnbon - Orange sweet covered with a white chocolate truffle, coated in sugar.
Choc Blanket - Chocolate fridge cake topped with a layer of lime cream and orange gelatine.
Moriarzipan - Basically a large chunk of marzipan wrapped up with ribbon.
'Strade Candy - Fondant dipped in chocolate, then rolled in coffee granules. Thatch is fondant.
Mycrunch - Chocolate-coated-almond bar filled with cream.
Molly Mix - A base of pink dolly mix, covered in white chocolate and a ribbon.
Herbal Soothers - White chocolate infused with Chai tea.
Andersaur Jellies - Apple-flavoured jelly sweets, in the shape of a dinosaur.

For the next 30+ hours I have to NOT DIE.

So that I can see Sherlock series 2. No falling baby grand pianos, no setting off rockets in my room ala the Sims, no eating bad take away, no crossing the street without looking both ways. NOTHING.

I CAN DO THIS.

“I always thought what Russel [T Davies] did in Doctor Who was extremely groundbreaking in a slightly more subversive way than it looked like. It never occurred to me that it was too on the nose, what he did brilliantly was incidentally gay characters obviously as well as some more in your face ones. One of my favorite stories is Gridlock, there’s an elderly couple of ladies who are together and it just sort of passes by and that’s the way—softly, softly. That’s how the revolution happens as it were, you just become aware that people are incidentally gay. I think when the day comes that you have a big detective show where the first half hour was this man at work and he’s a maverick and all the usual things and then we went home and his boyfriend says, ‘Are you alright?’ it was just a thing, then something genuinely changed. I think the problem still is it becomes the issue. I think the thing with gay characters is that it has to be an issue as opposed to being part of everyday life, which of course—as we all know—is what it is.”

Tumblr is gonna love this. Intrigued by “The greatest and gayest shows on TV in 2012” on the cover, here it is,

I went to hunt for the February issue of Gay Times. And ta da! Of course there’s Sherlock:D Actually it’s an interview with Mark Gatiss, on Sherlock and John being gay, on slash/fanfictions online, on whether he gets Russell Tovey naked in Sherlock, etc.

Open in new tabs for bigger. Beaware of minor spoilers.

PICTURES back on fysherlock?  Whoa.  Also, super gay.  Big plus.

Update on the ‘Sherlock from the USA’ debacle!

RUN-DOWN ON THE IP-ADDRESS* CHANGING/MASKING SITUATION:

TunnelBear has a media limit (if you download it for free), which makes it a bit iffy to use for Sherlock, although you can gain 1GB of extra data if you tweet about it. link!

Expat Shield does the same thing that TunnelBear does, except is totally free and has no media limit.  There have been few complaints about this one so far; definitely recommended. link!

Stealthy is an add-on for Firefox which I am using right now to watch an episode of Top Gear, so if you’re more comfortable with a Firefox whatsit then I recommend this one. link!

*An IP address is the little code that tells any website that asks for it where your computer is accessing the Internet from.  Ergo, if you’re an American trying to access BBC iPlayer in order to watch your favourite British programmes from the comfort of your beautiful country, the BBC uses your IP address to know to tell you to fuck off and shoots some guns or eat some grits.  The software programmes detailed above either change your IP address to that of Great Britain or mask your IP address so that they have no idea what you’re up to, but assume that you’re a friendly enough fellow.

Anonymous said: I use Stealthy and it works brilliantly!

Nice!  I’m going to look into this one…

Anonymous said: do you know if the firefox add-on Stealthy will work when trying to watch sherlock live? i'd really rather watch it as it happens instead of waiting hours and being behind, and i think Stealthy might work. (if you've already answered this, please ignore, sorry!)

I’ve never used Stealthy, and so I wouldn’t know its limitations.  Does it change your IP address?  You may want to try experimenting on the iPlayer website (www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/tv/) with other programmes and see how they work.  Good luck!

mosasaursharpsichord said: So I just downloaded tunnelbear (great idea by the way) and I had a few questions. One, I live in the US, so should I have the dial for it on UK or US? And two, how exactly does it work once that's begun? I just want to know all this now so I'm not freaking out the night of the premiere.

The dial should be set to UK, as it represents the IP address that you’ll be giving to whatever website asks for it.  As for how it works, I don’t know exactly what you’re asking for, but TunnelBear changes your IP address which is the code that tells the Internet where your computer is being used.

We’ve recently realized that, with only 500MB of data available for free, TunnelBear may not be the best option for the Sherlock premiere;  instead, check out Expat Shield.  It does the exact same thing that TunnelBear does, except that it’s entirely free and has no data limits (also, it’s run by another company).

So.  If you find a way to work with the data limit of TunnelBear, then great!  But otherwise, go ahead and try Expat Shield instead.
