    Sherlock fan in Paris

    Oh I certainly am fan of Conan Doyle stories, of course . Altough certain of them I did not read recently , and not in english . But I am beginning to re-read them all in english, after seeing the series I get also that older people may not be as much huge series fan in general compared to the younger one ,well of course there were plenty of adaptations of Sherlock Holmes for television I guess, but now it is on computer, android device etc ..

    Sherlock fan in Paris

    I believe there's someone else in France who's been fairly active on the forum lately, but I can't offhand think who it is, nor do I recall what part of France they're in. There are definitely members in neighboring countries, but again I have no idea how far they may be from you. Are you a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, or mostly just the television show Sherlock? It's my impression that most Holmes Society members are primarily Doyle fans (and a few of them may be fairly snobbish about that), although some members also enjoy watching movies and television programs based on his stories. When you do get a chance to attend a meeting, it might be wise to just listen for a while, until you have some idea who is a media fan and who is strictly a Doyle fan. In other words, don't walk in assuming that they'll all know (or care) who Molly Hooper is.

    logics inconsistency in Sherlock,

    Yeah, that's the problem as I see it. Laboratory experiments can be repeated exactly, but with real-life stuff, you often get only the one chance. Of course you can do population studies, and see whether Method A or Method B tends to give the best results, but that applies only to the mythical average person. It doesn't necessarily prove which method would work best for you or me.

    logics inconsistency in Sherlock,

    How do you do repeated experimentation for murder-solving , or just figuring out real-life events ? Just wondering .

    Fullmetal Alchemist is amazing. It’s one of my favorite works of fiction. I actually just rewatched the whole thing last February because it came up on Netflix, and I had only seen the first half before that, many years ago when it was first being aired. It had left an impression on me, especially those first dozen or so episodes. They were still popping up in my thoughts, years later, lol. I watched the Brotherhood version through as well, which is also amazing, but I didn’t get quite the same feeling from it. It’s no less good though.

    Episode 3.3, "His Last Vow"

    Lovely takes on a really dark episode. We have discussed the point-blank shooting quite enough, but I found in both ACD canon and the Granada JB Sherlock version the great consulting detective pointing out that 'brains come before the cudgel', so the creators have for the umpteenth time played fast and loose with their pet project. Nothing new under the sun, but...*sigh*

    Which story...?

    Hi all, I finished the complete collection and no butler. It must have been a pastiche, but from where I don't know as I always remembered it as the genuine article. It wasn't vital information but just something to add a little colour to what will probably be a very dry academic paper. Thanks for your suggestions. If I find it I will let you know.

    I remember the Dark Phoenix storyline really made me sad. I think that's about the time I stopped reading comics, actually. Only to get sucked into manga/anime a few years later … oh, go ahead and rip my heart out, Full Metal Alchemist!

    Which story...?

    I think so Nofim. I’ve been trying to think of any tv or movie adaptations that it might have been from but none come to mind. A pastiche seems the likeliest candidate and there are so many of them that I’ve only read a very tiny fraction.

    Which story...?

    Hi Herlock, I'm now at page 954 of the Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes and no sign of my butler yet. I am starting to think it must have been an imitator...
  17. HerlockSholmes

    Which story...?

    Hello all, To be honest I can’t recall the reference. I don’t have any books with me to look through either. The most famous butler in the Holmes stories is, as Hikari mentioned, Brunton in The Musgrave Ritual But Holmes already knew him and so didn’t need to make any kind of deduction. I have a notoriously poor memory but I have to say that I can’t recall a case where the client was a butler. As has already been mentioned perhaps it was a pastiche. When I’m back home I’ll check up.

    Jeremy Brett

    Recently, just as a change from binging on Granada episodes, with all the technical limitations of the 1980s, I stumbled upon a production of The Merry Widow, by Franz Lehar, where, contrary to My fair Lady, JB does all his singing in his own voice, and it's a treat. Not to mention his Byronic curls. Now... where have I seen this hairstyle again? Moftiss version, perchance? And Plaidadder has written a wonderful meta called The Best and Wisest Adaptation on the Granada series, which is thoughtful, insightful and about 90% spot-on. Addendum: You have got to hand it to the French, they do everything in style: Sherlock Holmes received the Legion d'honeur for saving the Mona Lisa in The (original) Final Problem, Jeremy Brett received the same award by the French president a few months before dying. Meanwhile, on the British side, not even a single BAFTA or other honour for his multifaceted talent. Oh, well, maybe getting out of the EU, AND staying out, may prove salutary in the end.

    I am dying. I'm sure there was a time, centuries ago, that I was somewhere other than this office.
