  1. I should at this point maybe inform you that this forum skews rather heavily towards female, just so you're warned. :D That being said, many actors have an advantage when it comes to aging gracefully, male and female alike. Say, Dame Judi Dench or Katherine Hepburn are two who come to mind immediately.

    Off to google Peter Mandelson now, thanks for that info and I have to admit that name rings only a very faint bell. :blush:

    eta: Oh, you meant the Prince of Darkness. :lol: I didn't remember his name, only the moniker. Also, googling brought me this: https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/features/playing-peter-mandelson-mark-gattis-channels-the-prince-of-darkness-in-channel-4s-coalition-10134081.html

  2. Hello CGRaines and welcome to the forum! :wave:

    One one hand, I kinda like the idea ... Lady Smallwood struck me as tough and intelligent (at least going by S3, can't say for S4) and she can't have been too happy in her marriage, so she was presumably well over her loss at that point. On the other hand, wasn't Mycroft hinted at being gay in S2 (that "see the Queen" quip by Sherlock)?

    As for the age difference, nobody would bat an eyelash if it were reversed, so good on her, I'd say. :lol:

  3. 4 hours ago, All Right, Spock said:

    Yep!! I'm a huge Trekkie. I love this quote because I have always interpreted it as being a reference to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, in which Spock says "An ancestor of mine once said that when you have eliminated the impossible what ever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." (or something to that effect)

    Canonically, Spock (my favourite TV & film character) and Sherlock Holmes (my favourite literary character) are related. Yay.

    Then again, maybe John is just pointing out that Sherlock is taking the whole "no emotions" thing a bit too far and is acting like a psychotic weirdo. Either way it's cool. 

    You might like this blog post by Diane Duane then, where she talks about the relationship between Star Trek and Sherlock Holmes: http://dianeduane.com/outofambit/2012/02/02/the-starship-and-the-upstairs-flat/ . :smile:

  4. Note from Carol the Dabbler:  I'm combining a new thread into this one for the simple reason that (unlike the last few pages) it's actually ON TOPIC!!!  :D  Here's the original post:

    Over 55 years, (since I was 20)  I have accumulated a lot of books and other sherlockiana.  Since no one in my family is interested  ,'I'd like to know where to find either a market, or at least a good home for the accumulation.  I do not have a current inventory.  It is mostly modern parodies/pastiches, but some rarer stuff.  At least 50 original BSJ's, The Hound in shorthand, for use in teaching shorthand,  and stuff like that.  Can anyone point me in the right direction(s)?

    ... and here's Caya's response:

    Hello Occasional Irregular and welcome to the forum! :wave: 

    Unfortunately, I have to admit that I, for one, can't help you, but we have some bona fide Holmesians on the forum and I'm sure one of them will be along shortly. Meanwhile, you are from the US, right? Asking because it might help to clarify if you are looking for a home for your collection in the US as well or if you would be willing to ship it overseas if need be?

    Sad to hear that your family doesn't share your passion. :unsure: If you want to chat about all things Baker Street-related, we'd be happy if you stuck around. :smile:

  5. That, in my experience at least, may hurt even more than cutting her off completely, because you keep being reminded of the old camaraderie. YMMV, of course.

    Sheerluck is right, you did the right thing and should be proud of yourself. A suicide note is nothing to be taken lightly, and if she sent one just as an attention grab, the fault lies with her, not you. Still, people do weird stuff while grieving, so if you can find it within herself to forgive her, you might want to see if she's back to normal (whatever that may mean in her case) again. Only you can know if you're ready and willing to give her another chance, however.

  6. Dunno, I for one was happy being an only child - probably helps that I've always been an introvert. I had my friends at school and in the neighborhood, and we'd visit each other and play together, but I also treasured having time for myself with only my books for company (and maybe a snoring dog to snuggle against when reading). Having siblings, who from what I saw at friends had a rather loose grasp of the concepts of privacy or wanting to be left alone, would probably have driven me up the wall, so I'm glad my parents gave up after me. :lol:
