I asked Steve Lawes, the Director of Photography on The Empty Hearse, what his inspiration was for the torture scene. His reply was “An Experiment on a Bird in an Air Pump” by Joseph Wright of Derby, 1768. 

(Earlier conversations about this parallel happened here and here. But I want to revisit the topic.)

Steve didn’t give me anything else to go on so this has been fun to think about. The way I see it there are a few ways of looking at the relationship between the painting and TEH’s torture scene: 1) plot 2) lighting 3) framing/ composition 4) point of view 5) subject matter 6) the story told by all these elements in their sum. The vast difference between the two is, obviously, that Sherlock is cinematic.

Cumberbatch gives one of his best performances as the awkward, socially inept but brilliant mathematician. “He just gave and gave,” says Tyldum. “We’re both perfectionists and we both like to push things, so that was why I’m so proud of the result and of how good he is.”

I’m pretty sure that this is what a large portion of Tumblr wants for Christmas, if only we were able to actually purchase it. As soon as I work out how to put a big red BUY NOW button on this post that sends all proceeds to me, I’ll let you know…
