WILTY and Sherlock mini-episode

Tags: ,
There was a Christmas special Would I Lie To You on yesterday. David Mitchell did a possession round and it is OMG!Fantastic!!! If any of the following phrases mean anything good to you, watch it now; if they all do, watch it even sooner: David Mitchell; Would I Lie To You; British Comedy Panel Shows; Doctor Who.

If you've never seen WILTY, basically, one of the panelists tells a story and the opposing team has to decide if it is true or is a lie. The entire episode is in the video, but for the Mitchell possession bit, which is only 3 to 4 minutes long, start at the 20-minute mark.

The Sherlock Series 3 Mini Teaser episode has also been posted. Hooray for Sherlock! This one really is just the Sherlock makers teasing us via playing with the non-eponymous characters of the show.

Series 3 Episode 1 airs New Year's Day in the UK with episode 2 on Sunday (5 Jan.) and episode 3 the next Sunday (12 Jan.). Episode 1 airs on 19 Jan. in the US and I don't know beyond that.

Ahah no I know that... it's just... gosh it's been sooo long!!
I can't wait *flails* (Also I whish they had thought of a way of seeing it outside the UK because here in Italy series 3 isn't going to happen, which means I'll have to find some other way because ah, I'm not going to wait for the DVD. We got series 2 nine months later here and ONLY on a pay tv channel) :-/

Oh. I get it!

I use a UK proxy server to watch it off the BBC iPlayer. I'm not waiting for the US air dates, and that's only a couple weeks later this time. Last time, US was 4 or 5 months behind the UK.

That was a hilarious Would I Lie to You! I loved David Mitchell's possession round too. He's so adorable. They always give Lee Mack such difficult lies!

Yay for Sherlock! I am so excited. :D

It was definitely an instant classic episode of WILTY all around, for me!

Can't wait for Sherlock!!!

Ohh I would have totally missed the WILTY special. I'll watch it once I am done with the ancient christmas-tradion of watching all the fairy-tale adaption that are on TV over the holidays...(just finished crying over Little Match Girl...)

The Sherlock Minisode was adorable...though I did wonder what that scene in Germany was supposed to be. There are no juries in German law (wikipedia just told me that Austria has them but they didn't really sound Austrian)
/minor nitpicking/
I am so exited for the 'real' new episodes

It really is a great episode of WILTY all around, not just that one bit. Or at least I thought so. Hope you enjoy(ed) it.

The German jury thing is definitely odd. I saw Mark Gatiss sent out a tweet that basically said "We know there are no juries in Germany, but that's why there's the line about 'unusual circumstances.'" Weak, but at least they acknowledged it, I suppose.

Ah well...it's weak but for a just-for-fun minisode I can live with it. Just hope they won't cary that on into the proper series.
