I would love nothing more in the world than to move to England and find people with whom it would be alright to talk about Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings and Music and Merlin and Supernatural and Skins and Being Human and Doctor Who and Sherlock and Vampire Diaries and Misfits all day. And not necessarily in that order.
So my little project of mapping out 221B Baker St. from Sherlock turned into a huge nightmare. I had found this amazing site that layed out what it looks like throughout series 1, but it hasn’t been updated for series 2. So I basically went through Scandal and Reichenbach and took my own crappy screencaps that I could refer to later. Oh, and the whole reason I’m doing this at all in the first place is because some details are really important for a fic I’m writing…and I needed to logistically know what was possible in the placement of people and props and things. Whatever. All that matters now is I’m committed and obsessed and really, really frustrated. I swear, Moffat and Gatiss were a little confused about what tv show they were working on when they constructed 221B. It seriously just isn’t possible unless that damn flat is a freaking TARDIS or wizard space or some shit like that. I can only hope we get to see the second floor in series 3 and that not too much changes around the place then, and that they maybe come out with more behind the scenes stuff, because that’d be awesome. But seriously, it’s probably all Moffat’s fault. Just sayin’.
We met next day as he had arranged, and inspected the rooms at No. 221B, Baker Street, of which he had spoken at our meeting. They consisted of a couple of comfortable bed-rooms and a single large airy sitting-room, cheerfully furnished, and illuminated by two broad windows. — A Study in Scarlet
