    Loving the podcast! I don’t have time to trawl setlock, so I really appreciate your contribution to more efficient spoilerage. Just a small observation–Mark Gatiss appeared on Episode 1, series 1 of Derren Brown’s show Trick or Treat. The episode is available in YouTube. So it looks like Derren is friendly with a number of folks involved in Sherlock, and I bet he’d be willing to help them with a bit of fan misdirection. I’ve also seen a nice theory around that the scene with Derrren is a product of John’s imagination after he knows Sherlock is alive, but before he knows how he survived the fall. Might it be part of a montage wherein John feverishly imagines more and more outlandish explanations for Sherlock’s reappearance (I was hypnotized by celebrity mind-bender, Derren Brown! Sherlock flew with an umbrella like Mary Poppins!) That could explain a number of the stranger shoots at Bart’s, and it could be really funny to boot. Keep up the good work!

    Great podcast, guys! I have especially appreciated how careful you are to let out spoilers incrementally so it’s possible to listen to the podcast for minor spoilers while avoiding major ones.

    Heads up, though: spoilercast 4 won’t upload via iTunes for me (very disappointing, I was looking forward to it). “The file might be corrupted, or a file type that iTunes cannot play,” it says.

      Same here! My iTunes is sometimes recalcitrant, though, so I was wondering if anybody else had the same issue??

        Thanks for letting us know! We think we’ve now figured out the problem, and hopefully everything is working again. At the moment, playing and downloading from the website should work just fine. It may take a day before we know if iTunes is working or not.
