I saw elsewhere (can't remember where...) the theory that the out-of-character move from Sherlock was his playing half-dumb on the rooftop with Moriarty. He got Moriarty to give away the details of Moriarty's crime - possibly recorded by Sherlock's phone. After Moriarty had incriminated himself Sherlock returned to his normal, nowhere near dumb self. Then, before he went off the roof, he tossed his phone aside - I guess for investigators to find later. Not sure that any of this related to how he survived, though.

Probably the stupidest theory yet: Sherlock copied the Doctor and used a Teselecta

I know that Sherlock doesn't take place in the Whoniverse but if it did, that's wjat he would have done. It's the only way I can think of

SKMF.

Your theory.

:heart::heart:

Actually, while looking at the screenshots and seeing where the telephone booth was pointed out I immediately thought: "THEDOCTORFREAKINGSAVEDSHERLOCK."

Despite it not being blue.

Or a police box.

Gah.

So many fandoms...

I'm going crazy because of this. I know Molly must have had something to do with it, and Mycroft probably knows...
btw, what about the IOUs, they were all over the episode in graffiti (with WINGS no less) and it has to mean something other than I owe you, otherwise why always write it IOU. And then aparently there's this big clue we all missed that has something to do with Sherlock doing something out character?????????
So many questions... 2013's too far away

Well, he had to sell it to John, it isn't that compliacated...it's either that or having asked Molly for help, and we know she did something.

hyacinthum Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
Yeah, :D Thanks but I'm still kind of skeptical, because we all saw him call John and cry and it has to be something we missed... Thanks anyway :) We'll just have to wait until 2013

Oh, also don't forget that the amount of time it would take Sherlock to hit the pavement would not necessarily be specified or accurate because the editors can do whatever they like on the and how much time he took could be elongated or foreshortened through video processing.

My friend had a theory that seemed like something that Moffat would do just to troll. She thought that when John was knocked down by the bicycle he was too disoriented for just a slight tumble which means that the bicyclist must have injected him with something to make him believe it was Sherlock falling off the roof. Instead, like you said, Sherlock jumped into the laundry truck which was pulled up onto the curb (but we didn't see it because from Watson's view the truck was obscured. Also, Sherlock made it very apparent that John needed to stay where he was in that particular spot before he jumped. This was probably due to the fact that he did not want John to see him land in the truck. Instead of covering himself in blood, Molly/Sherlock placed a dummy covered in blood on the pavement. I have evidence to prove this. As you said, Sherlock fell vertically which means he would have landed vertically with his head facing the street but, as a matter of fact, he(or whoever was placed on the pavement) was set to have landed sideways on the pavement. In conclusion, Sherlock fell into the garbage truck, threw a replacement dummy onto the pavement and when Watson was injected with the Baskerville drug from the previous episode, he expected to see Sherlock's body but was seeing a completely different body. We would have seen it through Watson's eyes(or whichever eyes the editor of the show wanted us to see) and therefore we saw Sherlock lying on the pavement dead.

This is probably super confusing so if you have any questions I'll clear points up. You said you wanted theories so here you go.

Thank you. For posting this. Honestly, I thought it wouldn't have been the lorry that saved him, because of the continuity error. Something as important as that shouldn't necessarily been caught in something such as a continuity error.

Haven't watched any of the series yet but as an avid Holmes fan I have been reading the theories! And I think I have just spotted where the body swap took place.

[link] < Above view, Sherlock on stretcher, arms hanging down side of stretcher, blood on face. Next to red phone booth!

[link] < John suitably distracted

[link] < Not Sherlock
[link] < with arms now lying across body

Did Sherlock hop off and body double hop on as they passed the phone box?

hey I saw the TARDIS and Dead Rory in Sherlock man! its not my fault its Moffat's! *Moffat induced paranoia*

Thats not bad thing i'm impressed.

Did I just not see the name "Molly Hooper" or did this page really leave her out of this?

The picture verityburns posted... well I donīt think thatīs actually from the show. Maybe they just practiced that scene with a double, they do things like that, and someone took a photo of it and now the internet is running crazy over this.
Otherwise, wonderful math and gorgeous guide all in all! :) Thank you!

Molly is...well...obvious. This is for the not obvious. We all realize that she had a part in it, which is why I didn't mention her. I've addressed this several times in other comments.
No problem otherwise!
