  1. Recently I took up Audible's three month free trial and with one of the free credits snapped up this gem. It's all of Sherlock Holmes canon read by the marvellous Stephen Fry. It's 72 hours long and worth every penny. If you haven't done so I recommend signing up with Audible just to listen to this.
  2. It is, I believe, essential a love story between Tolkien and his wife Edith with bits of war and Middle-Earth references added at points.
  3. I was worried that they would turn Tolkien's Somme experience into some sort of action film but that, thankfully, doesn't seem to have happened. I'm very interested to see it now.

    If you're a fan of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman as I am, you've been eagerly awaiting the release of the Good Omens adaptation. It's now known that Benedict Cumberbatch will play Satan. Roll on 31 May! https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/feb/14/benedict-cumberbatch-to-play-satan-in-neil-gaiman-fantasy-series-good-omens

    He is, however the way Grant played it you could see him easily doing Sherlock Holmes similar to the way Cumberbatch did.

    Mortar & pestle of course.

    Does it matter? But yeah, fish & chips. It was terribly difficult getting them in the syringe though.

    Thank Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. They pretty much created the mould that is continued to this day. And in fairness Fielding and Wodehouse have a lot to answer for as well.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    I had a rewatch of The Young Ones. Just so funny. If you're too young to have seen it the first time around you probably won't like it.

    A long overdue honour in my opinion. Grant was marvellous in Withnail & I. I don't think he's received the credit he deserves either at home or in America. I think his portrayal of The Scarlet Pimpernel is the prototypical Cumberbatch Sherlock. If' you've not seen it I highly recommend tracking it down. He's brilliant.

    I just watched this and surprisingly I enjoyed it as well.

    R.I.P. Albert Finney 1936 - 2019

    I was very saddened to hear of Finney's passing. His portrayal of Tom Jones was stellar and his Hercule Poirot was very memorable. Truly a wonderful actor. His talent will be missed.

    I saw Star Wars back in the cinemas when it was first released. Han was a cad and a rogue but redeemed himself in the end. His history was shadowy and dangerous and you wanted to know more. The new film makes him out rather insipid and uninspiring never mind some of the ridiculous things that are said and done throughout the film. I would only recommend seeing it if you are a Star Wars fanatic and then only if there isn't anything better to watch.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story. Pretty much a waste of film.

    A Collector’s Lot

    A sovereign has a nominal value of £1 but the gold value is much higher.

    A Collector’s Lot

    In case you were unaware, the Royal Mint is issuing a new 50p coin for Sherlock Holmes anniversary. https://www.royalmint.com/discover/uk-coins/2019-annual-sets/sherlock-holmes I think it should have been a pound coin, or better still a tenner.
