Left-wing political messages smuggled none-too-subtly into a popular BBC drama programme? Could that really be true? (Please see the title of this post!):
Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, has criticised the "biased" BBC after he was attacked during an episode of Sherlock.
In a mocked up newspaper which flashed up on screen on Sunday night programme makers took a swipe at the “dithering, incoherent, and self-interested” Mayor and his “hair-brained” (sic) schemes.
Responding to the attack, which was seemingly unrelated to the rest of the show, Mr Johnson said: “It is elementary my dear Watson, I deduce a simple case of BBC bias.”
