The mysterious case of the possible promotion?

Sherlock has got into a bit of hot water with Boris Johnson complaining of “BBC bias” and claiming he was being mocked in the fake newspaper article right at the start of The Sign of Three…

We’re more interested in the top article though.

(You can read the full text of the article here, on our LiveJournal discussion post, courtesy of braisinhussy - but be warned, it’s not very complimentary to our beloved Lestrade).

Several sharp eyed people (JessC among them) have spotted that in the article Lestrade is referred to as DCI (Detective Chief Inspector) implying he got a promotion. (This would be about 6 months after the Fall).

In the end credits however, he’s listed as before as DI Lestrade. So there are three possibilities:

  1. The article is wrong and he’s still a DI.
  2. He did get a promotion… and then got a demotion and went back down to DI.
  3. The end credits are wrong.

I can’t believe he would get promoted after the events of the Fall and before Sherlock is exonerated but that said, the article is very clear about him being in charge (and responsible) for the Waters Gang investigation.

Maybe he got demoted for massive misuse of police resources to a hoax call in Baker Street or when Jones took all the credit for finally catching the Waters Gang in the act? Or worse, maybe when they cleared Sherlock they gave him the credit for all of Lestrade’s record (much like Anderson did) and took back the promotion on those grounds!

Thoughts?

Look, I did a helpful thing!

Is there still a need for a link for the Crackanory episode with Rebecca Front and Alex MacQueen and/or The Spa's New Year special where Alison (which is to say Rebecca) sings karaoke? 

*raises hand* Yes please! I tried to find Crackanory and utterly failed, so I’d be most grateful.

Ooh, nice armoire—
