BBCOne Original Dramas Trailer

BBCOne put out an original dramas trailer (link goes to youtube) this morning.

It has the TINIEST bit of Sherlock in it. Tumblr EXPLODED. Dear Lord, the poor deprived Sherlockians.

On the other hand, the tiny bit they did give, was absolute gold. If they don't want us to think John and Sherlock are a couple, then they need to find some other way for Sherlock to express his feelings of friendship for John, because JHC. I don't ship my ships as part of the show. Slash (and het ships) belong in fanfic, and I kind of get annoyed when people project them onto the actual scripts. But dear LORD...

Just. Considering how aware they are on that show of the relationship since the very beginning. If nothing else, some writer is trolling MF and BC. :D Like, she rubbed her hands together over the keyboard and went "Ehehehehe" before she started typing...

Uisgich: Okay, so I'm a little confused that a bad thing?
CK: :D No.
CK:Mostly thinking about BC's interview after Top Gear.
CK:And some great comments I saw about his feelings about fandom's tendency to turn all deep, meaningful relationships into sex.
CK:(There were other great comments about how actors should not get caught up in fandom, but that was different.)
CK: Anyway, someone said, look, these actors work really hard together, as a team, to create this on screen relationship. They put a lot of work into it. So it is understandable that they might get annoyed when people view it through the lens of a sexual relationship.
Which is why I see the writer with her evil laugh...
CK: I totally see how that could get to you, as a performer. On the other hand, I tend to agree with the other person who said, look, fandom is for fans, and people who aren't part of it should just ignore it - including people like EVERY TALK SHOW HOST THAT TRIES TO EMBARRASS ACTORS WITH FAN ART. I'm looking in your direction, Graham Norton. I mean, it's great when actors are into it, like the Supernatural cast, but that doesn't mean that every person involved in a show is going to want or need to be part of fandom.
Uisgich: That's true. And I agree that GN should keep his nose out of fandom. But is has to go the other way. SPN is really fandom friendly, but there are an increasing number of incidents where Dean/Cas fans bring that relationship up at cons. Jensen refuses to engage, where as Misha seems to encourage it. Very muddy waters!!
I like the image of the Sherlock writer gleefully rubbing her hands and cackling, though :)
CK: She's like, "I'll make BENEDICT say it! BWAHAHAHA!"
Uisgich: =snickers=
CK: Did you see what Simon Pegg did? Via Twitter? With The World's End wrap gift to MF? THAT was funny. Simon Pegg is a very bad man.
Uisgich: Nooooo ...
Uisgich: Yes, he's a very bad man!!
CK: I think AA eats it up. She probably ships it. Sherlock and John, Martin and Simon. :D

I was just thinking, though. I suppose I'm going to have to find way to stream Sherlock in real time, because I will want to cackle at tumblr's antics, and I don't want to be spoiled. Gah. I was planning to just be cool about it, and I haven't really cared about seeing a show in real time in AGES. Suddenly, I have so much empathy for British consumers of American shows!
