CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE SHERLOCK CHRISTMAS SPECIAL TRAILER




I had a thought a day or so ago, as you do. Concerning the Sherlock Christmas special.

From everything I’ve read, the special is supposed to take place in 1895. Now, there’s no reason to think that Moftiss is going to stick to any of the ACD canon timeline (as erratic as that is), but WHAT IF….

1895. A year after Holmes’ return from The Hiatus. Watson is now widowed and once again living at 221B Baker Street, with Holmes. We’ve been led to believe that the episode has to do with ghosts somehow, perhaps a case involving the appearance of the supernatural.

Consider also that the scenes we’re given of Mary so far do not involve any dialogue or engagement with others on her part. We see her sitting on the arm of the chair that John is sitting in, which implies a level of intimacy, but John’s attention is elsewhere. He seems to be completely unaware that she’s even there.

In this episode, could Mary Watson – be a ghost??

The only thing that doesn’t really jibe with that is the mourning outfit that she’s wearing…..
