    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...?

    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.

    Google Dr Who news

    Hi all, ‘I didn’t know where to post this as there may already be a discussion elsewhere (so as I’ve said many times before, mods, feel free to relocate.) Ive only seen the first two episodes of the new series (I have the others recorded) but I have to say that I really don’t like Jody Whittaker’s Doctor I’m afraid. To me she appears to be impersonating a hybrid of Smith and Eccleston. So far I just find it impossible to take her seriously. I know that there have been complaints about the various PC issues which have been dealt with in the series so far, and I can see the point of those that feel that they’re almost being preached at, but for me the main issue is that I don’t see the main character has having any weight. Personally I loved Capaldi but I believe that viewing figures are up so I guess that I’m in a minority? I love Dr Who but I’m certainly not as big a fan as some on here. I’d love to hear others opinions👍

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    I’d have filled 10 pages with completely random and unconnected words and said “well if Pollock can do it with paint?”👍

    The Dinner Guest Connundrum.

    Stephen Fry’s comment was certainly a joke. They were talking about doctors when someone mentioned House.

    The Dinner Guest Connundrum.

    I certainly get the impression that RS would go into full ‘smoothie’ mode so you’d need to be on your guard. There would certainly be a few indiscreet stories being passed around. You could make a fortune by bugging the table and selling the tapes to the press. Hikarigate. Id have loved to have seen Fry and Laurie as Holmes and Watson but they would make entertaining dinner guests. They’re certainly real friends but they like a few good-natured barbs. I recall Fry saying of Lawrie once that he was “a blithering idiot without a script.” Hiddlestone is a blank page to me I’m afraid. And Benedict who?

    Thanks Hikari👍 I’ve been back home for nearly three hours now. It’s nice to sit in a comfortable chair for a change. There was no chair in my tiny room so I was perched on a far too bouncy bed whilst trying to read.

    Herlock’s London Adventure 2018

    It’s 9.45 am and I’m sitting on the world’s softest bed in the world’s smallest room listening to the drilling and hammering and shouts of workers in the distance. My suitcase is packed except for my iPad and I’m ready to roll. I’m going across the road to the Italian cafe for an omelette and a coffee then I’ll flag down a taxi to take me to Euston Station. My train is at 12.32 so I’ve plenty of time. Ive had a great 10 days. The weather has been pretty good for mid-October in England so I can’t complain. If I make it next year I think it’s time to try a new hotel. After a long days walking no one can look forward to 50 stairs up to the room! I’ll shop round. I love London but I couldn’t live here unless I was rich. Getting around all the time on the underground would test anyone’s sanity. But as I’ve said before, if you love your history, this is a great place. Just behind a modern restaurant you’ll find a 13th century church. An uninteresting looking alleyway reveleals a small square and the pub of your dreams. There’s always something. So if you haven’t been...try London. If you like sunbathing......please dont😃 Herlock Sholmes - London - signing off.👍

    Plus the funniest stand up comedian ever....in my opinion - Billy Connolly.

    I’m unsure but if it’s sardines you can be certain that they are of the very highest quality.😃

    I couldn’t comment Sheerluck as I’ve never been to Glasgow. I’ve been to Edinburgh twice when I was very young because my gran was Scottish but that’s about it. I’d like to go back to Edinburgh though to see Picardy Place of course.👍

    I’ll be home by 3pm tomorrow. It’s 7pm now and too late to go anywhere so I’ll chill out and get an early night. My friend Marty will be back in San Fransisco by now. By the way, I asked him a question that stumped him. He said it was a good question. But he might have been just saying that. That really curved street in SF (is it called Lombard?) I asked if it was built like hat for a reason or simply as a tourist attraction?

    Our guide today told us the name of the current cat but I can’t remember it. Apparently there’s a Downing Street cat, a Foreign Office cat and a Home Office cat. All paid as Civil Servants 😃 The mob that hound the pm is just the press who are allowed in. No members of the public though. But it wasn’t that long ago when the public were allowed in.

    My adventure has come to an end.😭 Apologies for my hopeless photography. We have many, many, many faults here in the UK but we do have London and if you like your history then, in my opinion, there’s no better place to be. And Sherlock Holmes lived there! Im not biased of course.😃😃😃😃 Its nearly 7pm. By 3pm tomorrow I’ll be back in the dreary Midlands.

    And my final photograph, taken from a moving taxi. No need to tell anyone what this is. https://ibb.co/hvcTmL
