Mid0nz: Sherlock's Danger Night

I'm mid0nz. This blog explores BBC Sherlock from a 44 year old Cumberdyke's perspective. Sometimes subject matter & the occasional reblog are NSFW. I'm obsessed with cinematography, the 221B set & props, and the soundtrack. Sometimes there are otters.

The Blind Banker vs. The Pink Panther

I think the random sword fight scene in The Blind Banker is an homage to the scenes in the Pink Panther movies where the bumbling Inspector Clouseau hires his butler, Cato, to attack him at random. The idea is that this will keep Clouseau on his toes and his fighting skills sharp. Slapstick hilarity ensues. Clouseau is a parody of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s sleuth, Poirot. So yeah. Intertextuality.
