Deleted scene at the gay bar, why it was deleted:
At a “Meet the Filmmakers” Apple Store event, actors Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch revealed the deleted scene. “Doing the drunk stuff was lovely,” says Freeman, “but I regret there was one bit of that drunk stuff that was missing. There was the gay club scene.”
Martin explained the scene: “We were absolutely mullered in the gay club – lots of topless men going past, and us just going ‘Why are we here?’”
Cumberbatch chimed in, stating how Sherlock felt about the situation: “I had no idea as to why they didn’t have their clothes on, and then it dawned and my grounding shook.” We can certainly imagine drunk Sherlock just looking around, dumbfounded until he realized what kind of establishment he was in, and we wish we could’ve seen it!
And if you’re upset that the scene wasn’t included in the episode, guess who you can blame? Steven Moffat. He tried to explain that there just wasn’t enough time in the episode. “The first cut of that drunk scene was interminable. It went on and on and on. You’d have been hunting me down if we’d put it all in.”
We’re pretty sure that Sherlock fans would have been delighted by a longer episode, especially if it included the gay bar scene.
