  1. I'm thinking of ideas for a new tattoo, and I had the thought: In a world where Sherlock is tatted up, what would he get to honor his friendship with Watson? I'd like to get that tattoo! It can be an image related to a case/adventure, it could be a quote, no wrong answers. I thought it might be fun to hear some ideas from my fellow Sherlock Holmes fans!

  2. Just watching this episode from 2010... it aired 6 months before Sherlock. he plays a gay, whisky priest- great role and it's a good one! Oh, it's called The Sword of Guillame.

  7. You sure this doesn't belong in the WTF thread? Moral of story: Don't spit while committing a crime.

  8. I don't know what it is, but there's a fence very similar to that not far from here. It doesn't enclose anything, it just runs alongside the road, and on the other side is a golf course. It's to keep stray golf balls from hitting cars. Could there be anything like that inside that fence? Putting range, maybe?

  11. Hello Carol, Your request shouldn’t take long as there is no evidence but sadly this can be par-for-the-course in the Whitechapel Murders case - especially in recent years. Certain writers resort to finding someone that was alive at the time and living reasonably close-by and then weaving a ‘case’ around them. If it can be shown, for example, that the suspects father had left while he was young or that the suspect had some kind of illness then ‘bingo!’ We’re now getting close to the position of wondering who hasn’t been suggested as a suspect by now (Dr. Barnado, Lewis Carroll, poet Francis Thompson, Oscar Wilde, Vincent Van Gogh and (horror of horrors) Conan Doyle!) The latest nonsense is the suggestion that it was a police officer called Endacott. He had absolutely no connection to the case but earlier had been involved in quite an infamous case after he’d arrested a young woman for soliciting on completely spurious grounds. The woman was provably not soliciting and there was justified outrage at her treatment. The guy claims that this was some kind of ‘trigger’ (yawn) for Endscott to murder prostitutes. Anyway, on to Holmes. Mudgett claims to have inherited diaries which ‘experts’ have shown to have been written by HH Holmes (although I’m unsure if he’s ever actually produced them?) In them Holmes claimed to have been in London at the time of the murders (this can’t be backed up with evidence despite Mudgett’s efforts) with another man who was some kind of assistant. Holmes instructed him to commit the murders as some kind of distraction to his own murders (in London?) and to discredit the police. Mudgett also claimed to be terminally I’ll due to a tumour which later magically disappeared. While he still had the tumour he was getting seizures which produced hallucinations where he heard his grandfathers voice. The theory is completely baseless Carol. It can’t be shown that Holmes was even in London and, whilst all murders are horrible, the ripper murders were of a very different type. Holmes was a maniac but not the Whitechapel maniac.

  17. It's produced by Studiocanal, so probably gonna end up at Canal+ first, thus, streaming. But they didn't say so outright, which means it's probably still up to negotiations whether it'll be an exclusive. Fwiw, studios seem to be moving away from those lately (and good riddance, honestly).

  18. According to the article that J.P. linked to, How to Stop Time is going to be a television mini-series (6 episodes). Has anybody said where it's to be televised -- broadcast network, cable channel, streaming??? Seems like everything's on streaming these days.

  19. You got it all in one! Exactly what I was thinking. I was inspired by a fandom video of BBC Sherlock set to the song “Titanium.” The lyrics were from Sherlock’s POV, but they could also describe Watson. And SH would not choose anything so sentimental as a picture. He’d probably give himself the ink. I had a year of chemistry and it was a terrifying experience. On a whim I looked up the properties of Ti and by Jove, it’s perfect. that Blog line got stuck there when I cut and pasted from a webpage and I tried to delete it but couldn’t.

  20. Upon consideration, and knowing Sherlock's background as a chemist, I think he would select the elemental number for Titanium (Ti) to signify his 'Boswell'. Consider: Titanium has the highest strength to weight ratio of all the elements It has a very high melting point of 1800 degrees Celsius Because of its stable properties, Ti is used to store nuclear waste securely Titanium does not occur naturally as a metal and will always be bonded with another element. Due to this, Ti is considered rare and costly. It alloys well with iron and aluminium (crutches)

  21. Moi? Never seen it in my life! As far as I am aware, it has never been available to Brits. It's a piece of Benedict's work, that has been missing for me.

  22. Heads up to Brits: this is being shown here on BBC2, 10PM Sunday night... I will be in bed(and hopefully asleep!)...but I am recording it! Oh and I forgot my first post on this... never saw it, then!

  23. Like besleybean, I'm a republican. A monarchy is outdated, archaic and a waste of taxpayers money that could have gone to the NHS and the poor. I only watched it because of the bragging rights to the generation that is born now. Also, it's unclear on what grounds the leader is arrested. But I've heard (idk if it's right) that England has passed harsher anti protest laws, my respect for England has gone ever since they want to change the Equality Act to excludes transgender and non binary people, and because of the harsher anti protest laws it's even lower.

  26. Elephant can be very dangerous, especially the males. However, that is not the concern if they are left alone as most wild animals do. The danger would be, as usual, comes from human. Imagine the tusks, poachers who don't hesitate to do anything. However, I doubt we have the space and resources for them. But I agree with you, why do we want to spend resources to create this instead of helping the endangered species? Beat me. I wish to work in research field because for some, it seems fun and easy money to do meaningless studies. These are the actual studies that fits this thread because No Shit Sherlock: Study shows beneficial effect of electric fans in extreme heat and humidity Why Snow-Blower Use Declines in July Holding on to the blues: Depressed individuals may fail to decrease sadness Being homeless is bad for your health WELL NO SH--

  28. Hi, Herl, Trudging along here . . still alive so that's something. Are you still actively involved in your Ripper community? I guess as with Sherlock Holmes aficianados, there's no danger of interest in the Ripper dying down. I discount Mr. HH Holmes since I'm convinced that the Ripper was a man local to Whitechapel. A visiting American or even a visiting toff from the better parts of town would have really been disadvantaged in navigating the district. Not to mention the MO of the crimes that Holmes committed is worlds away from the Ripper's work, geographically and stylistically. It's really rare for a serial killer to alter his hunting grounds and his signature methodology that much. It's usually what trips them up in the end . . their little habits. One suspect I've always felt incredibly sorry for is Montague Druitt, who seems to have been targeted for no other reason than because his body was found in the Thames shortly after the murder of Mary Jane Kelly. No less a personage than the Assistant Chief Constable of the Met published his theory that Druitt was the Ripper. Druitt was accused of 'sexual insanity' . . which I believe meant that he was a homosexual. He had been dismissed from his post as a a schoolmaster owing to having been outed, and killed himself in despondency, at least so it seems to me. His unfortunate death was coincidental to the cessation of the murders but because people theorized that the Ripper had stopped because he'd drowned himself in the Thames, Druitt being found there was convenient 'evidence' of the theory. Evidently some of Druitt's associates/family members even accused him posthumously of these crimes. I think they must have been looking for notoriety and profit from a man who could not defend himself against the charges, because apart from the fact that Mr. Druitt lived a considerable distance away from Whitechapel in Kent, he had rock solid alibis for several of the killings, having been away as far as Dorset playing in cricket tournaments. To have boarded a train and done a round trip of some 200 miles each way to cut up some wh*ores in Whitechapel and make it back to the cricket pitch seems . . well, fantastical. I hope that poor man has found some peace. If he was actually the Ripper, it would have been quite a feat to pull off. Seems unlikely that a barrister/schoolmaster would have chosen that milieu.
