  • -A bit different from my day... -You have no idea

  • -Mike, can I borrow your phone? There's no signal on mine

  • -But what's wrong with the land line? -I prefer to text

  • -Sorry, it's in my coat -Here, use mine

  • -Oh, thank you -He's an old friend of mine, John Watson

  • -Afghanistan or Irak? -Sorry?

  • -Which was in, Afghanistan or Irak? -Afghanistan, sorry who did you...

  • -Oh Molly, coffe, thank you. What happened to the lipstick?

  • -It wasn't working for me -Really? I thought it was a big improvement.

  • Your mouth is too small now. -Okay...

  • -How do you feel about the violin? -Sorry, what?

  • -I play the violin when I'm thinking. Sometimes I don't talk for days on end. Would it bother

  • you? Potencial flatmates should know the worst about each other.

  • -But, you told him about me? -Not a word

  • -Then who said anything about flatmates? -I did. Told Mike this morning that I must

  • be a difficult man to find a flatmate for. Now here he is, just after lunch, with an

  • old friend, clearly just home from military service inAfghanistan. Was not a difficult

  • leap. -How did you know about Afghanistan?

  • -Got my eye in a nice little place in central London. Together we ought to be able to afford

  • it. We'll meet there tomorrow evening 7 o'clock. Sorry, got to dash, I think I left my riding

  • crop in the mortuary. -Is that it?

  • -Is that what? -We've just met and we are going to look for

  • a flat? -Problem?

  • -We don't know a thing about each other, I don't know where we're meeting. I don't even

  • know your name. -I know you're an army doctor and you've been

  • invalided home from Afghanistan, and you've got a brother who's worried about you, but

  • you won't go to him for help because you don't approve of him, possibly because he's an alcoholic,

  • more likely because he recently walked out on his wife. And I know that your therapist

  • thinks your limp's psychosomatic, quite correctly, I'm afraid. Some of to be going on with, don't

  • you think? -The name's Sherlock Holmes, and the address

  • is 221B Baker Street. Afternoon.

-A bit different from my day... -You have no idea
