Did you watch the show to the end m8? at the end you see Sherlock watching Watson at his grave.
I did, I just don't think it was the bin truck. Watson checked the pulse of the body and and certainly seemed convinced enough looking at it that is *was* Sherlock - and he does have a rather convincing face.
I mean, he could have magically flown into the bin truck, rolled out of it's closed caged sides, covered his face and the floor with blood, and stopped his own pulse, and laid there looking dead for a bit. Or Molly somehow found an extremly close looking twin of his, (maybe Jeremy Clarkson's uncle
) and stuck his dead body on the floor, but I like to think it's not such an obvious solution.
Although, on the other had - despite him not jumping, his body does seem extremely far out from the building when he's falling. He was also falling basically in a nice forward-facing star shape - whereas the body itself was on it's side, rotated 90 degrees clockwise to what it should have been - like it could have been neatly rolled off the truck, and Watson may have conveniently mistaken his identity after being hit on the head and being slightly out of it, whilst the truck drove off nice and safely with Sherlock in it.
Of course, I like Sherlock because it point's out what you don't notice as the answer, and these are all really noticeable so I'd be personally disappointed if that was the solution.
