221B: Sherlocks Holmes

BBC Sherlock

Rating: PG

Spoilers for The Reichenbach Fall

"There's a dead man in Addlestone who looks like me," Sherlock told Molly, and she really wasn't sure what a sensible reply to that was.

"Right," she said nervously, and waited for the really alarming bit.

"I need someone to collect him. You've got a car, haven't you? I'm going to fake my own death, so easiest to start with a lookalike corpse."

"OK," she replied, because she had promised she'd help him. "Do you know where this body is? I mean, where in Addlestone?"

"Yes, but Mick, who found it, doesn't have his own transport, and taxis can be funny about these things. But the body's quite fresh, it'll look fine in your passenger seat."

"I see. Can I possibly ask how he died?"

"He was murdered.  Oh, not by me, don't worry. He was an actor, hired by Moriarty to pretend to be me and to carry out an abduction. After which, Moriarty killed him. You'd have thought that was the obvious hazard of taking the role, but actors clearly don't have much common sense."

"I've never seen an actor who looks like you," Molly said.

"The resemblance isn't particularly close, but hair dye and the right clothes hide a lot. He wasn't a well-known figure: I doubt he's any great loss to the profession. His name was Benedict."

This may possibly be the most evil Reichenbach fic I've seen so far. Well done, you. :)

Re: 221B Sherlocks Holmes
It seemed an entirely logical way of solving a plot problem - and it's not Sherlock who's killed someone. He's just making good use of available resources ;-)

I think with the amount of possible solutions I suggested for Fall, one of them had to be at least partially right, on the principle of the infinite number of monkeys trying to write the works of Mark Gatiss. But I did particularly like this one.
