Sherlock thoughts – themes

Originally published at Faith Seeking Understanding. You can comment here or there.

Walking home from a bit of a rough day, my mind found it way to Sherlock. (Surprise, superprise. *g*) Specifically I got thinking about some of the themes. I came up with:

Series One

1. “A Study in Pink” – selfishness
2. “The Blind Banker” – selflessness (imperfectly portrayed, but growing)
3. “The Great Game” – friendship

Series Two

4. “A Scandal in Belgravia” – romantic love
5. “The Hound of the Baskervilles” – trust
6. “The Reichenbach Fall” – sacrifice

So there’s a real arc in human virtue, a real growing-into-a-better-person particularly on Sherlock’s behalf. I think that’s part of why I find it so compelling. (Part.)
