YOU REALLY ACTUALLY MEAN I GET TO SEE THE LOST 1916 SHERLOCK HOLMES FILM??????
"The film will be restored for viewing by European and American audiences, under the supervision of film restorer and SFSFF Board President Robert Byrne, who said, ‘It’s an amazing privilege to work with these reels that have been lost for generations. William Gillette’s Sherlock Holmes has ranked among the holy grails of lost film and my first glimpse of the footage confirms Gillette’s magnetism. Audiences are going to be blown away when they see the real Sherlock Holmes on screen for the first time.’"
According to the Cinematheque, “[This] is a complete nitrate duplicate that, to date, appears to be unique. Originally intended for the French operations, it contains duplicate French intertitles, and annotations of hues. The latter feature is still surprising because Essanay films have rarely been exploited in color in the United States. It seems therefore plausible that color version was created specifically for France. [The duplicate]  is currently being restored by the French Cinematheque digital and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, an organization with which we have restored American films of our collections for 2 years now. This restoration is made ​​possible through the generous support of individuals who are passionate about Sherlock Holmes.”

I was talking about canon. The original stories, I mean.

The only mention of ‘Three Continents’ in Sherlock is on John’s blog, which is considered at least partial canon by TPTB. It was right before John met Sherlock:

Great to see you again, mate. And you should come down and meet the Mrs. Just remember she’s mine, Casanova!

Bill Murray 28 January 11:46

Casanova??! My brother?!?!.

Harry Watson 28 January 13:36

Oh yeah. The things he got up to before we went out to A. Dirty boy!

Bill Murray 28 January 17:56

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Harry Watson 28 January 18:12

So he may not even have that nickname in Sherlock. Sherlock did ask him in TSoT if he had an ‘international reputation’, to which John responded, “No, I don’t have an international reputation.” But he was drunk. So who really knows?

The blog doesn’t specify gender.

I feel the need to add this bit of information, which can be found here.

This fan-created nickname has its origins in the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novel The Sign of Four, in which Doctor Watson boasts “an experience of women which extends over many nations and three separate continents.”

Further details of the good doctor’s lady-killing history are never discussed, making it unclear whether he is simply an unapologetic whore or whether he has had many brief and ill-fated past marriages. Regardless, one can be reasonably assured (given the rather characteristic Victorian stiffness of vocabulary) that Doctor Watson had more than made the acquaintance of aforementioned women.

In fandom, this moniker is most often referred to in fanfiction (a notable culprit being Atlin Merrick) and is used as a testament to John Watson’s sexual experience, which generally goes hand-in hand with sexual prowess.

"Now, Watson, the fair sex is your department." —Sherlock Holmes (it isn’t *his* department, mind you)
