  • Best episode I've watched so far.

    Best episode of the whole series. Couldn't get it out of my mind for days. It showed how bullying and abuse can destroy a person's soul. The words of the script and the way Jonny Lee Miller chose to pronounce them left a deep impression.

    "I was different from my classmates. I was more intelligent. They thought I was brash. They tormented me mercilessly....... My classmates had one tool at their disposal: Violence. I was beaten. Fairly savagely and with great frequency. " ...... " I was drift back then. I had no purpose. "

    And the last scene were Sherlock is boxing with a punchingball and crying while doing so added to that. No matter how hard you try to put behind what happened to you, it's not possible to forget.
