I hope this hasn't been discussed anywhere else already, but I've just completed watching season 4 of Sherlock (the BBC series with Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson) and at the beginning of the last episode (The Final Problem), we see Mycroft Holmes (played by Mark Gatiss) using quite an interesting accessory. His very elegant umbrella contains a John Steed-like sword. The umbrella even looks the same as Steed's one.

Sword-umbrella's predate The Avengers, although I can't imagine the writers of Sherlock being ignorant of John Steed having one.

Mark Gatiss is an Avengers fan so I don't believe it's any coincidence.Smile

How great would an Avengers reboot done by the team behind Sherlock be?

I didn't know that! It makes me quite happy seeing The Avengers influencing modern television in one way or another.

That's an interesting idea Very Happy! If a reboot ever happens, they should do it the same way. Just a few but rather long episodes with very good actors and strong storylines. I believe that the team behind Sherlock would have got what it takes.
