"Seven years his senior"

Can anyone with a better memory than me remember where the info that this version of Mycroft is seven years older than Sherlock comes from? It's not in the show is it? --Amateur Obsessive (talk) 14:49, May 29, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Amateur Obsessive, We learn that Mycroft is seven years Sherlock's senior in the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories. I believe its "The Greek Interpreter". ~~Sisyphus~~

Thanks, yeah I know that. What I mean is, is this information canon to Sherlock the TV show, or just coming from the original stories. --Amateur Obsessive (talk) 16:14, November 26, 2015 (UTC)
The creators have confirmed that he's seven years older - so they've mirrored the original stories. ~~Carlag~~
Yeah, sorry for reviving a dead and old thread but as of The Final Problem when Mycroft tells Sherlock about Euros for the first time he also reveals that this age gap is in fact also SherlockBBC canon. 22:35, January 16, 2017 (UTC)
