"Gay sensibility is largely a product of oppression, of the necessity to hide so well for so long.

It is a ghetto sensibility, born of the need to develop and use a second sight that will translate silently what the world sees and what the actuality may be.

It was gay sensibility that, for example, often enabled some lesbians and gay men to see at very early ages—even before they knew the words for what they were—something on the screen that they knew related to their lives in some way, without being able to put a finger on it.

Often it was the simple recognition of difference, the sudden understanding that something was altered or not what it should be, perhaps the role reversal of a Dietrich or a Garbo evoking a hidden truth about the nature of sexuality in general.

Or it may have been the tone in James Dean’s voice as he zipped up the jacket of the dead Sal Mineo in Rebel Without a Cause and muttered, ‘Poor kid… he was always cold.’

It was the sense of longing that existed in such scenes, the unspoken, forbidden feelings that were always present, always denied.

It said, 'This has something to do with your life,' and it was a voice that could not be ignored, even though the pieces did not fall into place until years later."

"INTERVIEWER: You’ve said that with Sherlock, you don’t know what’s going to happen next season, but that you would love to go back.

PULVER: I don’t think any of [the cast] would say no on [returning to] that kind of show.

They’ve started shooting Series 3, and I think they’re very keen to introduce some new, iconic characters from the Conan Doyle world.

They’ve also announced that there’s going to be a Series 4, possibly a Series 5—which is hugely exciting because I think their intention is to come back to this relationship.

It made such an impact that I think there is that sense of over-boiling the egg, in that way, and I think there’s something nice about creating that world and then feeding into other characters and issues—and then maybe coming back in future series.

But, as [co-creator] Steven Moffat has said, [Irene] is definitely not dead."

Martin Freeman has a palette of subtlety. And I thought, this is a new sort of acting that I’ve never seen before.

"We’ve had this idea for a long time that Sherlock and Mycroft are like Niles and Frasier Crane [of TV show Frasier].

They have very ordinary parents who are lovely people—and, actually, Sherlock is more likely the product of a loving home than a broken one."
