This Tumblr, is a picture of me with Louise Brealey. She plays Molly Hooper in Sherlock and I have been a fan of hers since 2002 when she was in Casualty.
She is so lovely! A bit surprised at me appearing out of thin air behind her and asking for an autograph and her favourite cheese… But charming and lovely! =)
WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILER FOR SHERLOCK SERIES 3
BECAUSE HA HA HA HA HA OMG THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR NEW REICHENBACH INFORMATION.
Except it’s not really new. It’s a year old. But I guess nobody realized what it meant at the time, and nobody’s remembered it since. (I wasn’t here a year ago, so this is the first I’m seeing of this.)
Look at that picture up there. LOOK AT IT.
It’s Louise Brealey in the same clothes she wore as Molly Hooper in The Reichenbach Fall.
The picture was taken in front of the Smithfield Ambulance Station, aka the small building outside St. Bart’s Sherlock made John stand behind during the fall.

So Molly was at St. Bart’s. So what?
Well, it’s a pretty big deal because they don’t film the interiors of St. Bart’s for the show at the real St. Bart’s. The lab we saw Molly in during Reichenbach was actually in Cardiff.
Unless someone wants to prove that the hallway shot
in Reichenbach was filmed at the real St. Bart’s AND argue that they dragged Louise over there just for that, I think we’ve got a little spoiler on our hands here.
We’ve worked out how Sherlock survives, and actually shot part of what really happened.
They’ve already filmed part of how Sherlock survived
A picture of Louise as Molly in Reichenbach costume at St. Bart’s when she had no reason to be there based on her appearance in exclusively interior shots in Reichenbach
To me, it looks very, very much like Molly was in the footage that shows how Sherlock survived. And whatever her involvement in that part was, it was something that happened in an exterior shot.
I know this may not seem like a huge deal since most of us assumed Molly was involved. But if you think about it, it may really narrow down the possibilities when it comes to exactly how Molly could’ve been involved and what she would’ve seen or known.
