(non-BBC-Sherlock) Holmes-related Miscellany


Recommended Posts

Emma Thompson wants to be the first woman to play Sherlock Holmes?  Well, good luck with that.

Alrighty then. I can't picture that, but I would be willing to see it. If anyone could do it, It would be Emma Thompson or overrated Meryl Streep.

Jesskay!!!!!!!

 

I'm so used to seeing Sherlock as a young man now that my first thought was, "But she's too old!" :rolleyes: But I think she'd be great in the role, I love Emma Thomson.

Some new Holmesian stories - new canon fodder for Mofftiss?  Not likely, but it may have some more credence because it comes from one of the Baker Street Babes.

His grandfather was a (possibly dour) Englishman, the Rev. Mr. Sabine Baring-Gould (who appears in Laurie R. King's Mary Russell novel The Moor), an Anglican clergyman of some note (having written the popular hymn "Onward, Christian Soldiers," among many other works and various pursuits).  I was rather startled to read this on his Wikipedia page:
 

One grandson, William Stuart Baring-Gould, was a noted Sherlock Holmes scholar who wrote a fictional biography of the great detective—in which, to make up for the lack of information about Holmes's early life, he based his account on the childhood of Sabine Baring-Gould.

 
This means that the "biography" is a pastiche partly in the sense of an imitative work, but also partly in its other sense, a work made up of bits and pieces of other works -- literally, a "paste job."  Well, at least he didn't borrow Grampa's birthday!

William S. Baring-Gould himself was "creative director of Time magazine's circulation and corporate education departments," so apparently an American, yes.
