The amount I would give to know how this happened is insane. Did David Bowie just CALL TILDA SWINTON UP ON THE TELEPHONE? DID THEY MEET FOR COFFEE AND DISCUSS THE FACT THAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME PERSON? DID THEY GO ON A PILGRIMAGE TO THEIR HOME PLANET. I NEED ANSWERS!
WHAT DO THEY TALK ABOUT? ARE THEY FRIENDS? WHOSE IDEA WAS IT FOR TILDA TO BE IN BOWIE’S VIDEO? ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!!!!!!!
I always assumed she sprang fully formed from his forehead.
I’m honestly not sure what I love more: this image or the commentary.
I think this is actually an important part of Mycroft’s character that people tend to overlook in favour of the silly (and very enjoyable) cake jokes.
When Sherlock Holmes calls someone the most dangerous man you’ve ever met, I don’t think he’s speaking lightly. And I think a huge part of Mycroft’s danger is the very fact that he seems so innocuous. You’re chuckling along with him, chatting about this and that, thinking what a loveably clueless old thing he is, right up until the point where he tells you he’s poisoned your tea and would you be so kind as to tell him the name of the government Mole in your employ, because really, dead bodies do so clutter up one’s study.
