sherlock - mycroft

Sherlock on Mycroft, a la The Adeventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans

"You told me that he had some small office under the British government."

Holmes chuckled.

"I did not know you quite so well in those days. One has to be discreet when one talks of high matters of state. You are right in thinking that he under the British government. You would also be right in a sense if you said that occasionally he IS the British government."

"My dear Holmes!"

"I thought I might surprise you. Mycroft draws four hundred and fifty pounds a year, remains a subordinate, has no ambitions of any kind, will receive neither honour nor title, but remains the most indispensable man in the country."

"But how?"

"Well, his position is unique. He has made it for himself. There has never been anything like it before, nor will be again. He has the tidiest and most orderly brain, with the greatest capacity for storing facts, of any man living. The same great powers which I have turned to the detection of crime he has used for this particular business. The conclusions of every department are passed to him, and he is the central exchange, the clearinghouse, which makes out the balance. All other men are specialists, but his specialism is omniscience. We will suppose that a minister needs information as to a point which involves the Navy, India, Canada and the bimetallic question; he could get his separate advices from various departments upon each, but only Mycroft can focus them all, and say offhand how each factor would affect the other. They began by using him as a short-cut, a convenience; now he has made himself an essential. In that great brain of his everything is pigeon-holed and can be handed out in an instant. Again and again his word has decided the national policy. He lives in it. He thinks of nothing else save when, as an intellectual exercise, he unbends if I call upon him and ask him to advise me on one of my little problems. But Jupiter is descending to-day. What on earth can it mean? Who is Cadogan West, and what is he to Mycroft?"

"Mycroft draws four hundred and fifty pounds a year, remains a subordinate, has no ambitions of any kind, will receive neither honour nor title..."
按2010版,也就是说他那辆豪车什么的都是公家的,这整个一利用职务之便……那啥
原作阿福真是闷骚而低调地崇拜着他哥哥……
我觉得2010版的M哥和原作出入很大呀……原作哥哥怎么可能一天到晚追着弟弟给予关心……
嘛,原作那只是……引用2010版Sherlock发给Lestrade的短信:“你知道上哪儿找我……”
然而人家不托弟弟办事则已,一托就是“有必要的话全国警察都是你的后盾”……
顺便一提你有兴趣看麦哥帮手小夏的话,去看《最后一案》和《空屋》里有两个相当之萌的细节=)
(……我果然是看得台词都记得了这是多么强大的玛丽苏!)
最后一案看过了。空屋还没看……
从空屋开始的归来记,本身就是我最喜欢的案件集子啊,跳舞小人啦,三个大学生啦,诺伍德的建筑师啦(喔就是离我家500米的Norwood啊哈哈)金边夹鼻眼镜和黑彼得里出场的霍普金探员超级超级可爱,在阿福面前就是一忠犬弱受…………==
