It may have divided fans when it was first broadcast but Sherlock’s The Sign of Three has facilitated more than one holy union – first it brought Mary and John together, and now it’s proved the perfect catalyst for Mindy Kaling and Amanda Abbington to forge a Twitter friendship.
Comedy stalwart Kaling took to Twitter to share her love of drunk Sherlock and John, and it wasn’t long before Amanda Abbington spotted her message.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's drunk acting in this one episode of Sherlock I just saw is the best thing I've ever seen

Abbington promised to share the news with her husband, Martin Freeman, much to Kaling’s delight.
@CHIMPSINSOCKS thanks for saying that. I love you both on the show. Now when I come uninvited to your set I have proof of our friendship

Then Abbington revealed she was a bit of a Kaling superfan…
@mindykaling I have a picture of your face tattooed on both my arms. That's the proof right there my friend… X

Someone call Steven Moffat – there’s still time to write Mindy into series four, right?
