The mansion they filmed the interiors in TFP was indeed for sale last year. The information might be somewhere here too. It's even possible that I've posted it here. :D

Well, you never know where you end, once you start looking for Mycroft. :P Be careful it's not Serbia or Sherrinford.

I am reading Sherlock and looked up Sherlock forums.

That'll do it!

You're reading the original Conan Doyle stories?  How far have you gotten (assuming you're reading them in order)?  I've read about half, but some of the other members are major fans.

As you presumably noticed, the forum's main focus is the BBC/PBS television series Sherlock (have you seen any of that?), but we're also happy to discuss other adaptations plus the originals.

I just picked up 'A Study in Scarlet' and am working my way through that. As far as I know it's the first one, but I'm not sure.

Yes, I did notice that. Once of the reasons I signed up for this forum specifically is because Sherlock is one of the tv shows I watched all the episodes for, unless there's more content that I'm not aware of.

Yes, that's the very first Holmes story (which is presumably why the first Sherlock episode was "Study in Pink").  It's one of the four novels.  If you're wanting to stay chronological, the next installment would be another novel, The Sign of [the] Four (which introduces Mary Morstan but was some of the inspiration for the episode "Blind Banker"), followed by the first short-story collection Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (and so on).  Once you've read Scarlet, though, you've got the basic background, so you could read the rest in another order if you prefer.

There have been four series of three episodes each, plus the mini-episode "Many Happy Returns" [video here] (which aired online just before Series Three, i.e., between Reichenbach Fall and Empty Hearse) and the holiday special "Abominable Bride."  If you've seen "The Final Problem" (the one with Eurus), you've presumably seen 'em all -- though it's possible there will be more, eventually.

Of course if you want to be really complete, there's the unaired pilot, which was the original one-hour version of Study in Pink, and is available on the Series One DVD.  It's basically the same story, but sufficiently different to be interesting in its own right.

I am definitely wanting to stay chronological, so I'll for sure pick The Sign of the Four up next.

Nice, you have all of the information I was looking for and more Sherlock to boot! I am fairly certain I watched The Abominable Bride and the behind the scenes look thing produced by Netflix that Mark Gatiss did. However, I somehow missed that Christmas short thing.

"The Abominable Bride" was the episode set mostly in Victorian times (though it did kind of tie into Moriarty's "Did You Miss Me?" bit at the end of "His Last Vow").

I doubt I'd have known about "Many Happy Returns" if I hadn't already been a member here -- it appears to have been advertised mostly in fan circles.  It wasn't shown on television like the regular episodes and the special, just posted on YouTube as of the Christmas Eve before Series 3 aired.  Can't tell you how many times I watched that little video over the next few days!

Ah, “Monk” was a great show.

it reminds me a lot of the Monk episode they did when he pretends to be a mechanic in some small town.

A -  Sorry, I'm confused -- what reminds you of it?

B -  Monk pretended to be a mechanic?  As in, greasy overalls?  How can that possibly NOT ring a bell?!

C -  Love that show!

Ah, he worked in the car-wash area -- lots of soap, no grease!  :D   Still don't recall that one, though.  Guess it's about time I rewatched the series.
