A reporter gets an unexpected dose of detective.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

It’s a fangirl’s dream, and one reporter’s nightmare. You do not get up in Sherlock Holmes’s face and get away with it.

In the popular BBC series Sherlock, a reimagined, 21st-century version of the famous detective tale, one Kitty Riley, uppity girl reporter, did indeed affront Holmes, who icily informed her, “You repel me.”

And then, in this charming deleted scene, he surprised her at home. The GIF version was created by the delightfully-named Ella-Louise Ocean Vaughn Hubber at Beg For Mercy Twice, where it has gotten 6,327 notes since its posting on Jan. 17. The captions are the best part.

Imagine coming home, flicking on the light, and finding Holmes and Watson sitting demurely on your sofa.

If you need a moment of alone time, we’ll be here when you get back.

Imagine a man who’s spent years describing women as “needy husband-hunters.” A man whose consumer base has grown increasingly upset with his refusal to listen to criticism, lack of diversity, and that time he made fun of a high-profile woman in his industry for criticizing the way he runs his department. Surely he wouldn’t be allowed to keep his job, or at the very least, the higher-ups would tell him to watch his public image?
