  1. It’s a string of words basically Arcadia. There’s no need for such vagueness. I tend to think that a series 5 will happen but I’m not basing that on any knowledge ( how very un-Holmes like of me☹️) Lets hope that Moftiss don’t get too Doyle-like and start seeing their creation as a burden that they want to distance themselves from. I wouldn’t have thought so.
  2. I’m assuming that this is old news? https://thedigitalweekly.com/2020/01/25/sherlock-season-5-bbc-and-netflix-release-details-revealed/
  3. Are they hinting here at their next project? https://www.denofgeek.com/uk/tv/dracula/69539/dracula-could-frankenstein-be-next-for-gatiss-and-moffat
  4. So what’s the current betting about the possibility of Sherlock news this year now that Dracula is done and dusted?
  5. Hi all, I watched Dracula with the same reservations that I had when I first watched Sherlock and like Sherlock I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was really well done though maybe they could have rolled back some of the humour (or am I just being grumpy?) One thing hit me straight away though. Claes Bang = James Bond. I think he’s made for the role. I was never a massive fan of Daniel Craig I’ll admit but I think that Bang could be just the man to play the role with that slightly sinister hint of Connery but with the humour and style of Roger Moore. The trouble now is that however they chose to take over from Craig I’m gonna be thinking “nah, should have been Bang.” Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year?👍
  6. Things look different here? 🤔 I’d like to wish everyone a great Christmas and New Year .
  7. Looks Ike we aren’t going to get a new Columbo then. I can’t say that I’m disappointed. That said, a few years ago I couldn’t see myself liking a modernised Holmes but it happened. We’re all used to different interpretations of Holmes though. Columbo was Peter Falk and Peter Falk only. I really can’t imagine being convinced by a new Columbo. I remember Stephen Fry once saying how brilliant Columbo was and although I rarely see an episode whenever I do I can’t help agreeing with him.
  8. I never actually received my Arsenal Lupin book which got damaged in transit. I keep meaning to re-order. Thanks for reminding me Carol👍 Considering Doyle tended to be a bit dismissive toward his most famous creation he certainly wasn’t willing to let anyone else write Holmes into stories. This is the reason that Solar Pons came into being. Doyle refused to let August Derleth write Holmes stories after Doyle had told him in 1928 that he was definitely finished with him. So Derleth invented Pons. Holmes in all but name. And I’m glad he did.🙂
  9. I assumed that the five that are mentioned at the bottom aren’t the ‘other’ five? Maybe they are though?
  10. It would be the nephew’s Carol. I wonder why only these three get a mention? https://conandoyleestate.com/
  11. The Directors are Catherine Ruml Doyle who is the daughter of Doyle’s nephew from his first wife. Richard John Francis Doyle who is the son of Doyle’s nephew from his second wife. And Director Of The Conan Doyle Estate is Richard Pooley who is Doyle’s step great Grandson. They don’t exactly advertise who the other 5 are though. No mention of them on the Estate website.
  12. Perhaps with someone like Stephen Fry petitioning something might happen? I thought Rupert Everett was excellent as Holmes too. It would have been good if they’d decided to make another one. Ian Hart was a was Watson twice of course, to Everett and Roxburgh. Apparently he appeared in an episode of Elementary too.
  13. I also hope that he gets the long overdue recognition that he deserves in the form of some kind of Lifetime Achievement Award.👍
  14. Me neither Carol. I enjoyed Mr Holmes. I wouldn’t have complained if they had decided to do another ‘older Holmes’ movie. Not 90 of course but perhaps in early retirement.
  15. Perhaps they might have asked him to star in Mr Holmes instead of Ian McKellen?
