That's my beloved old violin (yes Talulabelle if anyone remembers her!) that he's so very unconvincingly 'playing'!
Yes it's quite the worst musical miming I've ever seen in a quality TV show - and the violin noise is so clearly recorded in a resonant studio not in a densely furnished flat!

As an ex string player I find the bowing annoying - so out of sync with the recording. But I do like Sherlock as a series. Best thing on TV over the Christmas/New Year period.
Was terrible wasn't it, even non violinists would be baffled looking at it. A clear 'new bow' and yet his bow is barely moving, or two seperate notes whilst he bow is slowly shakingly moving in one direction! Consdering it's a great programme with great acting, youd have thought theyd spend more time getting that right!
Oh yes and his bow was over-tightened - it made my toes curl, our old youth orchestra conductor would have said "who do you think you are - Robin Hood?"

I'm not at all doubting she's a brilliant violin and teacher
...how can she be proud, of THAT?! it kind of looks so fake that it seems like its intended to be so!
Perhaps he found it hard to concentrate....
He's clearly not at all musical if he can't even get the bow moving in time...
