  • The game is on.

  • Welcome to WatchMojo UK and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 10 Genius

  • Scenes inSherlock”.

  • For this list we're looking specifically at

  • the cleverest and most ingenious scenes from the popular BBC show, demonstrating the sheer

  • power of Sherlock's mind and his amazing deductions.

  • So, grab your deerstalker, let's unlock the Mind Palace

  • Introduced in Series four, Toby Jones' Culverton Smith cuts a shifty and suspicious kind of

  • character from the off, despite his philanthropic and entrepreneurial reputation.

  • And it didn't take Sherlock long to twig Smith's true villainy, capturing his confession

  • with a perfectly laid trap.

  • Thanks to Watson's predictable nature (and a cleverly planted recording device in his

  • walking stick), Smith incriminates himself beyond dispute.

  • Of course, much hinges on John arriving to save Sherlock so that the confession can be

  • released - but that was never in doubt, either.

  • First impressions are everything, and Sherlock knows that better than most.

  • Here he runs into a supposed super-fan, but he immediately works out the ruse.

  • Kitty Riley's in fact a journalist, looking for the latest scoop on one of the UK's

  • most elusive characters.

  • Of course, Sherlock never takes too kindly to the press, and he promptly puts Riley in

  • her place - with some typically astute comments on her look and demeanour.

  • The whole scene sizzles with intensity, as each tries to outplay the other.

  • But, there's only one winner here.

  • After a break-in at a bank where all the assailants did was leave graffiti on a painting, Sherlock's

  • asked to investigate - and the trail soon leads him to break into Edward Van Coon's

  • flat, where he finds Van Coon dead.

  • Watson and the rest of the police rule suicide, until Sherlock deduces otherwise.

  • The super sleuth explains how Van Coon's apparently obvious left-handedness makes it

  • very unlikely that he shot himself, rattling through a list of simple-but-brilliant observations

  • to back his theory up.

  • And there's some trademark sarcasm, just for good measure.

  • Sherlock's got one hell of a memory (on top of everything else), which he uses to

  • solve this case in the show's very first episode.

  • Chasing a taxi through the streets of London, with Watson just about keeping up, he employs

  • a photographic knowledge of the city, including the latest roadworks and diversions, to eventually

  • catch his target.

  • The scene does leave one question unanswered, though.

  • Why does Holmes use cabs as frequently as he does, if he can travel just as quickly

  • on foot?

  • Seems like a waste of fare money.

  • We're picking apart passwords next, as Sherlock's faced with the four-digit code to Irene Adler's

  • infamous phone.

  • And with apparently endless combinations in front of him, we spend the entire episode

  • trying to figure out what it is.

  • As usual, the actual solution is so painfully simple that we're kicking ourselves for

  • not realising it sooner, as Sherlock's thrown into an unexpectedly emotional exchange.

  • The 'I Am Sherlocked' line quickly became a mantra for the show, and understandably

  • so.

  • Sherlock's no stranger to injury, but he usually escapes fairly unscathed - until Mary

  • shows up, that is.

  • Just as we find out Mary isn't all she claims to be, she goes and shoots our gifted detective.

  • But things are never simple with this show, not even point-blank bullet wounds.

  • Time seems to stop, and Sherlock has seconds to determine how to fall to reduce the damage

  • done.

  • An ultra-intense moment, with viewers begging him to think fast, Holmes' ability to make

  • the right call was never really in doubt, was it?

  • Seeming like an ultra-logical superpower, Holmes' Mind Palace stores all of his memories,

  • and every piece of seemingly pointless information he's ever encountered.

  • Quite unbelievably, it's actually a legitimate memory technique, although Sherlock's is

  • much bigger, more effective and more extravagant than anyone else's could ever be, naturally.

  • Tapping the Palace for this scene, it takes him mere seconds to solve a huge piece of

  • the Hounds of Baskerville mystery - shining light on significant details his brilliant

  • brain has always had access to.

  • He just needed to cut through the chaos.

  • A huge moment at the start of the series, this scene establishes the Holmes/Watson friendship.

  • Serving as our introduction to both characters too, it's where we learn John's backstory

  • and it's when we get a first look at just how brilliant Sherlock really is.

  • Watson arrives and Sherlock instantly deduces that he's an army man with family issues.

  • Later, John's bemusement turns to amazement, when Sherlock explains exactly how he came

  • to those near-perfect conclusions.

  • We can forgive him that brother/sister slip-up - he's still human, after all.

  • For one

  • of the biggest surprises in the entire show, Sherlock jumps to his death at the end of

  • series two.

  • Or he seems to, at least.

  • We soon learn that the sleuth's still alive, but how did he do it?

  • Fans had to wait two theory-filled years to find out, with the first episode of season

  • three proposing multiple possibilities - including a plan involving a Sherlock mask, Derren Brown

  • and a bungee cord, and another hinging on a giant crash mat.

  • It's all about the ambiguity here, though - with some fans still unconvinced by Sherlock's

  • version of events.

  • What do you think?

  • It's not often that Sherlock shows his emotions, but here his straight-faced facade slips just

  • for a second - so he starts to question his most valuable asset, his mind.

  • But just because he's scared doesn't mean he's not still brilliant, and he proves

  • it by deconstructing a random couple nearby.

  • Revealing everything from their familial relationship to the breed of the lady's pet dog, he's

  • very clearly still in control, turning simple observations into spectacular details.

  • In case we didn't know it by now, nothing phases this guy - not even a supposedly supernatural

  • killer hound.

  • The solution is always within his grasp.

The game is on.
