Today we had our first look at stage lighting and it reminded me how impressed I’d been with the lighting in last year’s Christmas episode of Sherlock Holmes.

The Abominable Bride was both confusing and a little bizarre. There were so many back and forths through time that I half expected the tardis to appear and the doctor to jump out. But what amazing lighting!!!!! This combined with some beautiful juxtaposition of actors, furniture and props made for some really stunning scenes.

Who was the cinematographer?

Here are a few of my favourite scenes:

Mycroft’s study.



the underground cloisters.

reflections on the carriage window viewing sherlock and watson.

reflections on sherlocks face before moriarty appears.
