Is this how Sherlock did it? *may contain spoilers*

Eagle eyed tweeter, @TheDoctorsJawn has spotted “the little something” Steven Moffat has often said is in the infamous scene from The Reichenbach Fall. If you look closely, you can clearly see the man pull out a bag of blood from inside his jacket pocket.

If you remember, just before his roof top confrontation with Moriarty, Sherlock told Molly he needed her assistance with something. Did she arrange the crowd? The man with the blood?

My personal theory is that Sherlock jumped into the parked, open topped rubbish truck. Then rolled out as it pulled away. The crowd gather to block Watson’s view, as this man covers him in blood.

What do you think, is this how Sherlock did it?

Is the lack of Classic Doctor Who financial?

I, along with many other Who fans have been disappointed with the lack of Classic20130213-093655.jpg Doctor Who episodes being shown in the 50th anniversary year. With BBC America airing them as well as broadcasters in New Zealand and Australia doing the same, it seemed that BBC Worldwide were only concerned with fleecing the UK fan-base.
But, could the absence of classic who be financial? Christopher Biggins once stated in an interview that every time the BBC repeated an episode of Porridge, he, along with the other actors in the episode were paid £1,000. But, if UK gold played it, or it aired overseas they didn’t get a penny. I guess paying every actor involved in a classic story £1,000 per episode, just isn’t a viable option for them.
What do you think? Is the lack of Classic Who, down to the BBC’s financial constraints or, are BBC worldwide just interested in fleecing the fans?
