The Sherlock LEGO concept is now the most supported project on LEGO Cuusoo!
With just over 1k votes left to reach the 10k required to bring the set under review by LEGO, the Sherlock set is one of the fastest growing sets on the website, and is on the verge of attaining the 10k target in a month!
Make sure to GO AND VOTE so we can try and make the set reach it’s target in the next 5 days - while the next review process isn’t until early January 2014, it would be fantastic to have this set reach target in less than a month!
EDIT: Just over 300 required votes remain! One last push everyone!
As culled from various interviews, the DVD commentaries and assorted miscellany. I tried not to go with the more obvious bits of trivia (like Benedict dyes his hair) but if you’re a hardcore fan, you’ll likely still know all of these anyway:
- Martin Freeman plays army doctor John Watson, formerly with the Royal Army Medical Corps. In real life, Martin’s grandfather was a medic with the 150th Field Ambulance, RAMC, during World War II. Leonard Freeman was killed in a Luftwaffe attack on May 24, 1940, during the Battle of Dunkirk.
- Benedict Cumberbatch was the only actor asked to audition for the role of Sherlock, after Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue saw him in the film Atonement and Mark Gatiss, who’d worked with him on the film Starter for 10, vouched for him. Benedict’s audition was filmed in Beryl Vertue’s London flat, where she served tea and biscuits “like Mrs. Hudson.”
- (The Great Game) In the scene where Sherlock examines Carl Powers’ shoe in the lab, his solo shots were done on a separate day than the shots with John. They had to shoot part of the scene without Martin Freeman after he was injured from slipping on the icy steps of a production trailer.
- The pilot and A Study in Pink were filmed one year apart (in 2009 and 2010, respectively).
- The dog in Hounds of Baskerville was named Whiskey after Mark Gatiss’ own childhood dog. Kirstie’s pet was an homage to Mark’s husband Ian’s childhood pet, a rabbit named Bluebell.
Having received over 6k out of the required 10k votes for a chance of making the Sherlock Lego set by Flailx a reality, the team at LEGO Cuusoo have taken notice and left a comment on the concept page!
This project has been gaining supporters so quickly we can’t keep up with it! It’s clear that fans of the BBC show have really come together on this, and there’s no mystery as to why. You’ve captured the characters and the consulting room wonderfully, right down to the famous deerstalker (although how do you stalk a deer with a hat? That’s a case not even Holmes can solve).
Best of luck as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters, although something tells me you wouldn’t need luck.
Sorry, got to dash. I think I left my riding crop at the mortuary.

Great start to the Two, To One, Be Kickstarter yesterday with 13 backers already. Each £500 raised will mean an extra language project. The last project we got an amazing 8 languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, German, Polish, Chinese) - lets try and beat that this time.
