Sherlock 007 Clue

Lots of reviews are comparing the latest episode of Sherlock (The Six Thatchers) to James Bond films. Was this premeditated? There is a clue in the episode that suggests so. No one else seems to have found it yet. Here it is.

Double-o-seven!

Double-o-seven!

 

Right before the swimming pool fight scene, when Sherlock appears behind the glass door, four numbers (and a colon) appear on screen.

19:00. This is a time — 7 PM.

Now, the digits appeared on the screen from right to left. What is 7:00 from right to left?

Or look at it another way. The digits appeared in the order “00”  and the time came next: 7 P.M.

Either way: 007!

James Bond!

Now there are two possibilities here. Either a) the makers of Sherlock slipped this in as a reference to the James Bond-iness of The Six Thatchers, or b) this is a coincidence.

But, according to Sherlock Holmes, there is no such thing as coincidence.
