Hey there!

One of the most intriguing pair of brothers I have ever seen on screen and most interestingly portraied. I especially like the Union Jack behind Mycroft. I always wonder whether his near perfect intelligence made him who he is or the service to his country ... My apologies to Watson/Martin Freeman, but sometimes I think that Mycroft Holmes/Mark Gatiss is the more interesting character in the series.

Thanks a lot for sharing! :-)

Best regards

Hi ! I feel you there !
My dream was to be able to meet mark gatiss and ask him some questions about his role (being both a writer and actor of character that was not even here in the pilot).
But I was not even able to attend his masterclass :(

Thank you !

You are most welcome (sorry for the late reply, btw)! :hug:

Just out of curiosity: Which masterclass? Does he give lectures on writing/acting? I did not know that.
And yes, it would be revealing to hear his thoughts about the series, most of all on the more "over the top" aspects of season three. However, I am so looking forward to the next season!

Best regards

It was depicted as a "masterclass" when he attended the paris comic con. But I couldn't make it so.... I don't know what he talked about. But I read he gave some lectures somehow on different events :)

Wonderful artwork! Great scenery, especially Mycroft with the Union Jack as he "is" the government :D Very nice work

First I really wanted to name it "My brother, the British government " but it seemed to be a little long :)
Thank you!

You'r welcome :) I don't think "My Brother, the British government" is long. You could've omitted the "British" since that should be clear for every fan :D
