Sometimes I just want so badly for Mrs. Turner’s ‘married ones’ to have a cameo in the last few minutes of the last episode of BBC Sherlock and to be played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost!

Don’t be smart.

My favourite part of this is how apparently, at some point, one of them two of them started a sentence with something along the lines of: “Well, how about a game of Operation?”

Consider: Sherlock Holmes, who is bored by normal life and won’t get out of bed for anything less than an 8 agrees to play Operation (ages 6+) with his brother.

Sherlock and his odd commitment to board games might be one of my favourite things about this show. The seemingly-incongruous playfulness of it! The fact that Sherlock’s willing roll dice and wield tweezers just for fun; this is a man who equates fun with freshly-murdered bodies, so I kind of love that board games as also on his list. And John won’t play Cluedo with him again! The tragedy of it! John, don’t deny Sherlock his simple pleasures! Come on! Play Cluedo with him!

Maybe it’s just Cluedo John’s ruled out. Maybe they have a stack of 1970s board games hidden somewhere that they pull out regularly.

Or does Mycroft have a vintage and pristine 1965 game of Operation in his briefcase which he brandishes at key moments? Does he look at Sherlock and think, yes, he needs a round or two of a childhood board game right now. That will cheer him right up. Excellent use of our time!

Maybe that’s the unexpected thing John and Sherlock do right after the plane lands. They go back to 221b for a rousing game of Go.

My headcanon is that John found the Cluedo during one of Sherlock dark, bored spells (maybe in the back of his closet left over from a previous tenant). He popped the box open on the coffee table in a fit of desperation and while Sherlock whined and mocked him for it, he did in fact sit up on the couch and willingly played along. 

John had to explain the rules to him (though Sherlock put on the air of not listening at all) and John couldn’t decide which was sadder: that no one had played board games with a 7-year old Sherlock, or that Sherlock would delete his own memories of childhood to make room for the categorization of ash or fungi. 

But the truth is, while his family had not owned Cluedo, they had possessed a large array of other board games and even a few that their mother had created herself with bright colored boards their father had helped paint. The pair of them would drag Mycroft out of his room and retrieve Sherlock from wherever he was currently attempting to access Mycroft’s room after being locked out. I imagine Sherlock was often shadowing his older brother, the only other person whose mind worked like his, and that Mycroft’s overbearing behavior now is a reflection of the guilt from having pushed Sherlock away so much in their youth.

But occasionally their mother would succeed in sitting them both down at the kitchen table where they’d play long, elaborate games, switching up the rules as they went. Sherlock and Mycroft were already beginning their games of deductions, trying to guess what the other had which was still not as successful as their mother’s ability to count the cards even when they played with two or three sets of cards at a time. Their father never won a game but he always laughed the loudest 

And Sherlock never deleted those memories like John would suspect. Secretly cherishes them while simultaneously admonishing himself for not moving on to real games of deduction sooner. 

In a way, Mycroft and Sherlock pretend to one another to play these silly games of out habit (as engrained in their behavior as how the take their tea.) But Mycroft holds tight to these few moments of delayed interaction with his brother while Sherlock is finding it easier to incorporate his older thinking self with his younger feeling self, who adored silly games before he realized they were never the same when attempted with classmates at dreadful parties his mother forced him to attend. 

Ok…so I have alot of Holmes family feels.
