Swiss waterfalls of doom by queenstardust Swiss waterfalls of doom by queenstardust
They did not even start to shoot the second season of BBCs “Sherlock” and I am already afraid that they are going to make us wait with another cliffhanger. They said “Reichenbach” after all. And you know what that means.

The original Illustration by Sidney Paget inspired me for my own “last problem” waterfall picture.

Ah...this is just...just perfect! So symbolic, emotional and alive with such gorgeous fine detail and movement. I am thrilled by this piece, their dramatic plunge and the bold text, bravo!

Oh, how right you were! I have a feeling we will get a cliffhanger at the end of every series. :sherlock:

Superb! Now I kind of wish it had happened this way...If only for the iPhone plunging into the depths.

This is SO GOOD! Wonderful work, and I love that it was inspired by Paget.
Thanks a lot! I own the Sherlock Holmes books and I love the illustrations by Paget. Especially this one. I was just trying to give it a bit of a modern touch too.

Nooooo! :iconwaaaahplz:

I have such mixed emotions about the next episode. I'm excited about the showdown (obviously) but I don't want Moriarty to be killed off so soon. He's become my favourite character and their throwing him over the waterfall already?! Not cool... :no:

By the way, I love this picture. You've really done a brilliant job and you've inspired me to snoop around your gallery for more. Well done!
Thanks a lot for your comment!
What did you think about the episode? At least the cliffhange was bearable! Although, for a second, I thought they leave us with crying John and we would not know if Sherlocks alive or not. But yeah... Moriarty is dead. I´ll miss him too! His performance in the episode was brillant and we will probably never get such a cool villain again.

It was a better death than I had originally expected. It took me completely by surprise. I personally can't wait to see John's face when Sherlock comes back after three years of being deceased. :laughing:

P.S. At least Moriarty went out with a bang.

P.P.S. I KNOW THAT WAS A BAD JOKE. Deal with it. :D
