Am I the only one who noticed that they are using BBC shows to put in the world. First Doctor Who, The Professor with the long colorful scarf *hint hint* (4th Doctor) and he is in front of a red telegraph box, instead of being a blue police box. Also Sherlock one spot on the map 221 B. Barker St... instead of being 221 B. Baker St. Don't get me wrong I love these shows and I thought that was really neat that they added these in the game, it's humorous, but please tell me I'm not the only one who noticed this.

Um, the entire world is based on London, so yeah.

Oh dear... They call them "the brilliant easter eggs". You are going to love this thread:

Well not just BBC, it's based entirely off of London. And who doesn't like puns? Yes I did notice most of these refrences ( I just got into MB don't expect me to see everything already).

Just wait until you get to Avalon. Everyone from Led Zeppelin to George R. R. Martin gets a neat plug in that world.

Okay I can't be the only one... So I think there should be a quest for the Doctor Who guy in marleybone. Like if you do the quest from zaferia, and you get the key and sense he leaves, he comes back and you get to go into space with him. You get to fight the weeping angels that are And like just fight things. I mean it would be fun for the 50th anniversary of the show! Just an idea

If you search for him, you will find a dog named gordon sumner. That is the birth name of rocker Sting.

One of my friends and I spent FOREVER trying to read the sign on the front, and we figured out that the last sentence said "Warning: Smaller on the inside!"
