Hi all.
I just joined today. I've been a Sherlock Holmes fan for over 30 years. I collect books on Doyle/Holmes and I'm also on a quest (cash permitting) to get all the movies/tv series on DVD and radio shows on cd so I have a fair size collection which even includes silent movies.
As a bit of a traditionalist I was wary when Sherlock came out but I loved it immediately and still do. I hope that they get around to doing more but I know that Mark Gatiss and Stephen Moffatt are working on a version of Dracula( though I'm unsure if it's set in modern times like Sherlock) at the moment.
I'd say that Cumberbatch is my 3rd favourite Holmes (it changes.) It currently goes:

1. Brett - absolutely perfect/unbeatable.
2. Rathbone -
3. Cumberbatch - a high placing for a traditionalist like myself.
4. Cushing
5. Wilmer
6. Wontner

Favourite movies are the Rathbone/Bruce Hound Of The Baskervilles and Mark Gatiss' favourite The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes.

I recently visited Southsea to see a Holmes/Doyle collection and to see the blue plaque on the site where Doyle set up his praction.

Yup I'm a bit of a Holmes/Doyle nerd! Maybe a bit old to be considered a nerd?!

That's about all.

Thanks.

Hi Herlock,

There is no such thing as being too old to be something or to do something. My back would disagree, but why would I listen to it right??? Frog jumping is perfect for my age!

I am a nerd as well, and quite old. But I'm more like regular nerd for anything useless. So you win :P.

Welcome!
I may be on the side of the angels, but don't think for one second that I am one of them.
I said I'd tell you the truth. Didn't say you'd like it.

Hi Doe,

Thanks for the greeting.

To be honest I don't know why. I just never really considered doing it. I joined 2 Forums about Jack The Ripper (the other subject that I've been interested in for 30 years) recently so this gave me the idea to look for a Sherlock Holmes Forum to join. And so here I am.👍

Hi Van,

Thanks for the welcome. I'm going to be tested out very soon as I'm off to London for an 11 day break which will involved a lot of London Walks (including 2 Sherlock Holmes ones.) My own fault for being so unfit!
I need to go for a lie down now after the exertion of typing this reply.

Thanks again for the welcome

See, no taker! Nyah nyah nyah :tongue:
I'll let you see the frog jumping if you promise to help me glue back the scattered kneecaps.

Hey Herlock, do document your London sherlocky trip and share with us! I'd love to read about it.
London is probably in the my very low list of place to visit, so most probably I'll never see all the Sherlock's references myself. But Switzerland is quite high, at least I would like to see a setting of a detective and professor's cat fight. I can't help imagining them laughing, helping each other, sharing energy bar during the trek. :P

Wanna bet? :D
 
Glueing shattered kneecaps ... do I get to choose the pattern? That sounds like something that would fit in with my latest art project.
 
Which is this, by the way, and yes, it's a really long story, and no, it's not Smaug.......

But those are his baby scales -- you know, like how young humans often have different color hair than when they grow up.

Hi admp123. Be careful with Arcadia, her favourite food is the green (radioactive) blob! :P

Dark and light, one is where I prefers to spend time in summer and the second is something that just informed our new friend about Arcadia's eating habit.
