Reel Life (221B)

BBC Sherlock

Rating 15

Summary: Sequel to Watching the Detective, and inspired by Bloom84's suggestion in the comments on that.

Sid Paget of MI5, having temporarily got up to all kinds of dodgy stuff, is now back to his first loves...



"A six hour sex tape?" Lestrade demanded. "How is that even possible?"

"I suspect it's mostly shots of DI Dimmock looking moody," Mycroft replied. "Sid Paget's films are not renowned for their action. There may also be gratuitous shots of wallpaper."

"Well if Dimmock's embarrassed by the theft, tough. Shouldn't have agreed to let Paget film him, the little tosser."

"It's the technology involved that I'm most concerned to recover," Mycroft replied. "The files used some innovative compression techniques. We don't want that leaking out, whatever else did."

***

"Suppose we'll have to check it is the right one," Lestrade said, staring gloomily at the small, purple memory stick they'd just found in the Chinese agent's flat.

"We also have to ensure that Paget's identity was not compromised," said Mycroft. "Which I'm afraid means having to watch the whole thing."

"Anthea?"

"Her watching six hours of gay art porn is really above and beyond the call of duty."

"I'll do it," said Lestrade. Mycroft gave him a wary look. "Don't worry. I've heard Brad Dimmock say 'Lestrade' in that sneering way enough times not to get turned on by him."

***

Dimmock naked was irritatingly perky, of course, but Lestrade wasn't concentrating on him. Paget's body was unremarkable, and you couldn't see his face: every frame showing that had been carefully, artistically blurred.




Note: for the Dimmock devotees among you, there is also an amazing Sherlock/John/Dimmock video.

*sporfles and applauds*

I wasn't sure which Anthea icon to use for this comment, but given Mycroft's reservations about her watching six hours of gay art porn I decided on this one...

(I'm not a Dimmock devotee, but I enjoyed that ingenious video as well - thank you for the link!)

You are a little bit cruel, do you know that? When is Part 3 going up--where you reveal Sid's face? And Sally--does Sally know about this? I'm so invested in this Sidverse now! *sigh*

Knowing Anthea as I do, I suspect she wouldn't mind the six hours of porn at all, but . . . nice of Mycroft to be concerned.

seconding admiration for the s/j/d vid. dimmock is so sinister there!
