| The Judge |
|Behind the scenes|
|Appearances||"The Reichenbach Fall"|
|Portrayed by||Malcolm Rennie|
The Judge was the overseer for the trial of Jim Moriarty, who stood accused of attempting to steal the British Crown Jewels (stored in the Tower of London), whilst simultaneously opening the vault of the Bank of England and shutting down security at Pentonville prison.
The Judge is less than impressed with Sherlock's conduct during the trial, beginning with when Sherlock starts correcting the questions he is being asked. He is unimpressed with Sherlock's quick deductions conceerning the jury members to prove his credibility and seems cross that Sherlock is dawdling.
After Sherlock outs the jurors as to their jobs, history, and in one case, an affair, the Judge tells Sherlock to simply sit there and answer the questions being put to him. Sherlock is seen about to answer this before the scene cuts to him having been found in contempt and jailed, implying that Sherlock had replied with something rude.
