One Sherlock mystery was quickly solved in last night’s special – Mark Gatiss’s Mycroft Holmes hasn’t been shown in the previews because he’s, well, put on a few pounds.
Ok, more than a few. Can-bet-on-when-he’s-going-to-croak pounds in fact.
This canon Mycroft struck a chord with those who’ve enjoyed the festive season
Over the holidays, I ate exactly like fat Mycroft. #Sherlock

There were plenty who thought we’d wandered into a land of Sherlock/Star Wars crossovers

Marmite is pretty sure it had something to do with it
Looks like Mycroft's been eating a lot of me… #Sherlock ????
