Did anyone else catch David Arnold re-using a 4-note motif from TWINE in the latest Sherlock episode, The Abominable Bride? It occurs at about 34:14 mark, when Eustace sees a 'ghost' and believes his past sins have caught up with him.


Sorry my musical vocab is rubbish, but it is clearly recognisable in the Sherlock episode. I remember hearing it and recognising it straight away. The TWINE OST uses it at the beinning of 'Remember Pleasure' and in 'Torture Queen' at about 53 seconds (slightly sped up).

Great catch! I hadn't picked up on that! You're absolutely right!

Ha, yes; that's very TWINE. Good spot.
