Here's the place for all those Holmes-related tidbits.  (But please note that items relating specifically to the BBC program Sherlock belong in the thread "'Sherlock' articles & other miscellany.")

There didn't seem to be a more appropriate thread, so I made one!

 

P.S.:  Gotta love that one Holmes-society name:  the Seventeen Steppes of Kyrgyzstan!

Well, there's some of the BBC Sherlock mentioned as well as Cumberbatch but also a whole lot of Jeremy Brett.

Emma Thompson wants to be the first woman to play Sherlock Holmes?  Well, good luck with that.

Also interesting that, as of yesterday, Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British monarch in history.

I was really amazed to read that the third-longest-reigning British monarch was -- dear old George the Third!

 

(Judging by what I've heard from Alex's relatives in Wales, he wasn't terribly popular on his own side of the Atlantic either.)

A bizarrely sad situation, marginally related to Sherlock Holmes:

Agatha Christie mentions 'Sherlock Holmes' quite a few times in her books - usually in conversations that her characters have.

There is a new X-Box Sherlock game coming out.  Not related to the BBC version.

Looks like it's cross-platform again, like Crimes and Punishment was (phew - means I don't have to wrestle the XBox controller from my husband's grasp :D). Thanks for the news - I quite liked Crimes and Punishment (that we're-not-calling-it-thus-but-it's-totally-a-mind-palace system was great), so really looking forward to this :smile:.

I was watching 'The Murder Detectives', part 3 of a 3-part documentary series on Channel 4 on Tuesday I think it was. It followed a Bristol police department through a young man's stabbing, all the way through the process of finding suspects, charging and eventual trial.

 

I couldn't help noticing that the symbol on the ribbon of all the police dept's lanyards was a little white Sherlock (deerstalker and pipe) silhouette against a blue background :)
