Further thoughts on Undershaw news

Yesterday evening I wrote a quick opinion piece on the news that Undershaw is to become a school...

Undershaw - Sorry but I'm not celebrating yet

Well people are popping champagne corks re the news that Undershaw has been "saved". I'm reserving judgement.

Musings on "Hands of a Murderer"

In my last post I talked about my Holmes and Moriarty galleries and this in turn reminded me that I needed to add a Moriarty.

I was recently asked a question....

Yesterday, I was asked on Twitter why I don't have a picture of JLM as Holmes amongst my many Holmeses at the top of this blog.

Does the internet fill the gaps?

It is now widely stated on the Internet (rightly or wrongly) that we are likely to see Sherlock series 4 in 2016. Now, we've put up with a two-year wait before but will we do so again?

A Study in domesticity

In the Canon Arthur Conan Doyle gave us very little insight into the domestic lives of Holmes or Watson. This was apparently based on a desire to avoid what he saw as irrelevance.
