When the BBC released Sherlock in 2010, I became obsessed with emulating the title character’s powers of deduction.


Using observation as the public-method to my magic.


It’s easy to explain mentalism away as just reading someone, or being observant.


The spectator will exclaim that it’s body language, and many mentalists profess that it is, but it rattled me to see the reactions of people when you take that away… and observation becomes the method, instead of the scape-goat.


I’ve had burley men stunned to silence and women claim they can actually feel a spiritual connection between us.


I used these newly acquired powers for evil. Blagging VIP Areas in clubs, free bottles of champagne, girls numbers and larger tips at my gigs.



When you leave no explanation, the audience chooses their own. Your refusal to dismiss it merely confirms it.


They convince themselves, and it feels more true than it ever could of been if you’d just told them.
