In the last season, it's revealed that someone has been stalking (and secretly interacting) with Sherlock and John for quite a while.

A villain kidnaps and straps a bomb to a child to manipulate sherlock. The child is briefly heard over the phone but is never shown and is rescued safely.

The main villain constantly makes the main character question his own sanity; turns his friends against him and tells people he is crazy. Another antagonist character plays mind games with the main characters later in s4, which may be considered gaslighting.

no cannibalism, but there is slight mention of a cannibal in s3 e3. sherlock says he had a bet with a cannibal and won, very short, not graphic. this series is safe.

Not necessarily "buried," but John is trapped under/inside a bonfire at one point. Two characters are also trapped in a well at different points.

Sherlock is suffocated in S1E2 (he's fine afterwards) and John struggles to breathe after being trapped in a bonfire. John also nearly drowns in the last episode.

S1E1 a murder victim is theorized to have taken drugs, had a seizure, & asphyxiated on her own vomit. S4E1 a side-character is theorized to have a seizure.

At the beginning of season 2, when we see where Sherlock has been, he is chained up and is clearly shown that he's been getting beat up for a while by a Slav interrogator. No on-screen torture happens but definitely implied before Sherlock derails the guy and Mycroft reveals himself. In season 4, in the second episode, you see someone in essentially a POW situation being beaten, but you only see the shadows Also (spoiler), Sherlock is very much mentally tortured by the estranged sister by being forced to pick John or Mycroft to live. If suicide threats make you uncomfortable, Sherlock does put a gun in his mouth but it DOES stop the game.

In the season 4 episode The Final Problem, it is revealed that Sherlock's forgotten sister, whom his brother Mycroft and parents made him forget existed, along with other childhood memories, drowned his best friend, a little red haired boy, whom he had forgotten and thought of as a dog named Redbeard.

in S03E04, someone is a heavy drug-user, and another tells him "because you probably just od'd, you should be in hospital." he later admits that he "went to the trouble of an overdose". Heavy drug use is also in S04E02.

John's kidnapped a few times and there's often hostages in the cases that Sherlock investigates.

John kinda sorta cheats on his wife in Series 3? He talks and texts with another woman, but it never goes past that. There's also plenty of other instances of other (very insignificant) couples cheating.

No but in S3E3 a character goes into a bathroom where another character they are romantically involved with is taking a bath, the audience never sees the actual bathroom.

In S3E3 a main character “goes into their mind” and sees a person trapped in a padded cell and gets trapped themself for a short while.

Sherlock often goes to the morgue and he makes use of the lab there. There's also an episode that almost completely takes place in a hospital.

Yes, in the hounds of Baskerville John mentions in a rude/mocking way that sherlock could have autism. I’d recommend skipping the part where inspector Lestrade first shows up and talks with John.

In S1E1 there are a series of suicide looking deaths that are proven in the end to not be suicides, in S1E2 there is a man that appears to have taken his life, this one is also proven to be murder, in S1E3 there is yet another “suicide” that is proven to be man slaughter. In S2E2 a man tries to take his own life on screen while crying, he is stopped by people around him but it is a very heartbreaking scene. S2E3 has a very graphic scene where a main character fakes their own death very convincingly by jumping off a building while their friend watches. In S3E2 a minor character is close to doing something that would make the attempted murder on them successful. This is also stopped. In S4E1 a character dying from an illness “makes their death count” and gets help faking their own death and later taking their own life. S4E2 talks of being suicidal but no one attempts.

Not those exact words but i think that last episode in s4 someone who has to be shot says something along the lines of “I’ll do it myself”

A main character often doesn’t eat because they don’t feel like it’s necessary. A reappearing minor character is often seen trying to lose weight.

In the opening scenes of S1E1 (ASIP), there are flashbacks to a military excursion & it is filmed with a shakey-cam.

A minor character implies that the main character will kill someone a few times solely because she believes he is a psychopath. S4E3, it could be argued that Sherlock deliberately triggers someone. People are pretty horrible to the main characters, most of whom have some form of trauma, throughout the show.

An episode in s3 shows characters in some sort of "alternative universe" and one of them is obese. There are some cruel jokes about it in a short scene.

One of the characters in s2 is a sex worker (dominatrix) and is naked in one of the scenes (we cannot see her body, though). Some dirty jokes and sex related stuff are also mentioned but nothing too explicit.

Adding on to the previous comment sherlock’s sister mentions assaulting a female guard in the episode a final problem. While nothing is shown the conversation is explicit. I’d recommend skipping the part where Sherlock first goes to meet her alone to avoid it.

A person is shot in S1E1, in S1E2 a people are shot at but no one is hit on screen, near the end of S1E3 people are threatened with guns but no one is shot, but earlier there is an explosion caused by a bullet, S2E1 has a few brief scenes, one does have a death of a background character. S2E2 a person is in a sort of trance and tries to kill someone with a gun, but no one is hit. S2E3 main characters are threatened and a few minor characters are shot and killed. S3E3 a main character is shot but lives and a main character for that episode is shot and killed on screen, it’s a dark setting and not easy to see but still very clear. S4E1 in a fever dream a person shoots themself in the mouth but doesn’t die (it’s a fever dream), a minor character is shot with a shotgun and in one scene rather early on a character is standing on a balcony and shooting at people o the streets, it’s unclear if anyone is hit. S4E2 a person is shot in the chest and dies.

Nothing too bad. Blood/gore is either not shown on screen or very mild. There's mostly just blood pooling from things like gunshot wounds.
