Michelle from Huston, Texas, USA and Victoria from Barcelona, Spain, but resident in London
Michelle: “I was planning to come to London for the holidays but I scheduled my trip early just to be in this building at this time even though I couldn’t get into the showing.
“I got up at 5 ‘o’ clock one morning to get on the website to try to get tickets but of course they were all sold.”
Victoria: “I came here as early as I could to try to get a ticket but unfortunately I couldn’t so now I’m just waiting to see if I can get an autograph or a wave.
“I saw them from the balcony waving – I’ve seen Una [Stubbs, who plays Mrs Hudson], I’ve seen Lou [Brealey, who plays Molly Hooper].
Michelle: “I’m crazy about Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, of course. I was hoping Rupert Graves [DI Lestrade] would be here too because I’m a big fan of his.”
Victoria: “The experience itself is worth it. I’ve just met Michelle – we didn’t know each other – we were sitting there and we started talking, and with other people in the queue too, so I think that just adds to the experience.”
Michelle: “Sharing the experience with other fans is part of the experience."
Victoria: “There are people from all around the world here – Korea, China, Italy, Japan…”
