Mark Gatiss has just tweeted this lovely comment about Japan. I think he was here for a week from 14 to 21 August. I hope it’s not sayonara (farewell for ever), but rather ではまた (dewa mata) or じゃね (ja ne), expressions that mean “see you later” or “see you again”.
Martin Freeman & James Nesbitt | An Unexpected Journey Appendices, Pt 8.
This may be the only time Martin has ever been at a loss for a comeback. But then he saves it with a look.
"It’s a disgrace, sending your little brother into danger like that. Family is all we have in the end, Mycroft Holmes."
I feel like in the context of His Last Vow, Mycroft’s reaction in this scene makes a lot more sense.
I’ve always thought Mycroft’s “Oh, shut up, Mrs. Hudson!” was a strange, and bizarrely strong, reaction on his part. It’s true that he’s capable of being just as callouss and socially inept as Sherlock, but we also know that his position has caused him to develop a certain level of manners and diplomacy. It seems out of character for him to lose his composure just because a sweet old lady chastises him.
Unless she was touching on a sensitive subject.
Imagine that this line in His Last Vow implies what we think it implies: that there was a third Holmes brother, and that Mycroft was somehow involved in his demise.
If he’s harboring guilt about this it’s no wonder he prickles at Mrs. Hudson’s seemingly innocent comment.

What’s more topical than Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch? Yes, it’s Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch Doing The Ice Bucket Challenge!
Unfortunately, otters find it rather difficult to donate to the MND Association in the UK or the ALS Association in the US, but I’ve heard they make particularly cute squeaky noises of gratitude when human beings make a donation instead…
The many expressions of Martin Freeman.
