    With regard to Mary Morstan and the “Guardian” tag, I need to research the episode but thought it was actually “Guardian reader” as in the London newspaper, The Guardian.

      I’ve been doing a lot of research on this myself and it looks like this theory may have popped up in a few places, like this piece here by the Radio Times or some fan theories that were influenced by possibly a misprint (or leak) in an article promoting series 3.

      But the word ‘reader’ is not included in any of Sherlock’s deductions of Mary, which you can see here in this clip or in numerous screen grabs made of the scene. ‘Guardian’ stands by itself without any modifier or article (e.g. The Guardian) or additional noun (e.g. Guardian reader). This is in contrast to compound nouns and phrases that do appear in this stream of deductions (e.g. ‘Cat Lover’, ‘Disillusioned Lib-Deb’, ‘Secret Tattoo’ and ‘Bakes Own Bread’). In other words, I think that if the creators of the show meant for Sherlock to deduce that Mary worked for or read The Guardian, they would have said so more directly. Instead, we are given just a single word, ‘Guardian’ which looks a lot more like the single word deductions that proved to be extremely crucial revelations of Mary’s actual identity in HLV: ‘clever’ and ‘Liar’.

      We’ll see how things turn out, but I am banking on Guardian being a key component about Mary that we’ll learn more about in future episodes. Thanks for commenting!
