Favourite Sherlock Things: The look on Lestrade’s face when it’s a kid (The Great Game)

Everything about him in this scene: the horror, the disgust, the pure terror as that kid is counting down. This is a man who has had his faith in humanity shaken time and time again but right here is just destroying him. Sherlock’s thinking, Wenceslas is watching, John is yelling at Sherlock but Greg just stands there in this complete horror until he screams at Sherlock at the end, who knows the answer but needs those last two seconds to talk about how brilliant and how gorgeous it is. And then there’s the incredible relief on his face when the counting stops. Lestrade’s been through a lot. But nothing scares him shitless like a kid in the line of fire, and it’s just one of my favourite things ever.
