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:

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. Iīll 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

This is wonderful, I'm already crying for what is (probably most definitely going to happen in leaving us with a cliffhanger like this). I just adore the look of resignation and sheer determination on Sherlock's face. Beautiful work.

You know what? I wouldn't be surprised at all if they left us hanging at the end of Season 2. *grumble* I mean, come on, it's bad enough we only get 3 episodes a year...

lol is that Sherlock's blackberry?? XDDD

I saw the framed Paget illustration at the Sherlock Holmes gallery...a great take on the most infamous scene!!

I am a bit more optimisic now, because neither Mark Gatiss, nor Steven Moffat are writing the last episode. Whatīs the other writers name? I hope he is less cruel xD

Yes it is! xDD I replaced the hat in the original picture with Sherlocks mobile <3 If Sherlock loses his mobile, something bad happened!

thanks again <3<3

That's a nice little touch...<3 I wonder how the "note in a tin case" would translate in this show? Like, he's texting John on his blackberry, kinda casually chatting with Moriarty, and hits send just before he charges at him??

hm, maybe a mail or a short message which will be automatically send to John after Sherlock dissapeared? Sherlock planed this, after all ... But I hope they wont stay this close to the original story. I donīt want Sherlock to vanish vor years!

ooh, which ones have you heard so far?? ohmygod, I need this in my life RIGHT NOW. Somehow, in all of my years of idolizing ACD and his characters, it somehow slipped my mind that I CAN HEAR A BRITISH NARRATOR READ IT ALL TO ME.

hahaha, same, same. I kinda got back into reading things just before The Hunger Games got big (yeah, so it's Young Adult. Bite me. :P It's dystopian *and* post-apocalyptic, which are my kinks), then a friend introduced me to Game of Thrones (*swoon*), and now I've decided to read a few English classics while chillin' at Regent's Park. lulz.

Hey, I totally know how that feels...*exudes waves of empathy at you* I totally only read neuroscience, biology, and chemistry textbooks for 2 and a half years. :( Though it's good you got some comics in...XD Just looked up Dylan Dog, and I really like the art style. It also makes me think of Supernatural. lol

The first Ebook I listened to was Frankenstein as preparation for my trip to the theatre in London xD Afterwards I listened to a couple more, amonst others the Sherlock Holmes stories which are read by Benedict Cumberbatch. Thatīs when I thought: why not listening to the original stories as well? I have all the books but still couldnīt finish all the short stories. And now I can listen to them, while drawing. <3

Oh, I donīt know the Hunger Games and I havenīt watched Games of Thrones : O Is it good?

Itīs not that bad, because I can choose whatever subject I like for my diploma. Itīs actually quite interesting to read about film noir : D
Dylan Dog is great. Itīs an italian comic from the 80ies and it takes place in London <3 Dylan is some kind of detective who solves supernatural chases (not to mention he looks like Rupert Everett) What I like is, that every comic book is drawn from a different artist. They all have a different style, but the look is always the same. That is interesting to see <3

Oh gawd this is soooo awesome. I love it:) The black and white is just as dramatic as Paget.
(Though I think I love yours more now).
When they said Reichenbach all I can think of is Granada Holmes and this scene....
It will be wonderful BBC Sherlock's new interpretation.

The title of this picture is so amusing. And kudos on the inspiration...I'm in the middle of my giant collection of Holmes stories right now. And yes, I'm afraid we're going to have more cliffhanger angst.

Well, if I'm not wrong, Moffat himself said that they actually want to put the Reichenbach waterfalls in the show....those damned bastards.

Look, I'm here to idolatrize you. Because this is marvellous and made of awesomeness. If I wil be ever able to do my graduation thesis about SH...can I put this beauty into it? ;u; Obviously crediting you!

Nooooooo! He didnīt!! Really?! I was sure the will update it somehow and wont put the actual waterfall in the show! I think Guy Ritchie already shooted in Swiss. They just have to do it in a cooler way!

Thank you very very much! What a lovely comment! And you can use it if you want <3 What are you studying?
