Remembering the connections between Sherlock Holmes and the Titanic on the anniversary of the end of its fateful voyage.
"heard of it first by that strange wireless" [LAST] Today at 11:40 p.m. we remember that it was exactly 103 years ago the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage and took 1,517 souls with her by the time she s...

Sherlock Holmes Statue, London (Underground Station Baker Street) When I noticed that I needed a break from Sherlock Holmes (see post 'And suddenly it felt like goodbye') I was shocked and confused. But then I thought that i...

What's in a name?
Sherlockian/Holmesian Brad has done his part, in a recent post, of rekindling the debates of "Are you a Sherlockian or a Holmesian" and "what should fans be called." The source of this discussional rebirth can be found here. ...

Don Libey, "Buttons" of the John H. Watson Society, passed away on March 14. I only knew him through the medium of email, but he was generous with his time; a brilliant and knowledgeable Sherlockian (author of The Biography and Autobiography of Sherlock Holmes: Being a one volume, two book edition of My Brother, Sherlock and Montague Notations), vintner (you can see the ads for 221B Cellars in the past two years of the BSJ) and, as I am now learning, a giant in the direct marketing field. The void he'll leave in the Sherlockian world will be large, but that void will be small compared to the other holes he'll leave in the world at large.

I also only knew him through email and like Sandy said, he seemed like a genuinely nice man.

Highly illogical. #leonardnimoy
 
We recall the Sherlockian exploits of Leonard Nimoy.
"dignified and logical" [LADY]  Leonard Nimoy, best known for his role as Mr. Spock in Star Trek on television and film, has passed away at the age of 83.  While Nimoy was a poet, photographer and musician, he is most w...

"Edmond Locard wasn’t just an artist, a lawyer, a violin virtuoso, a botanist, a linguist and medical doctor. He was also the founder of modern forensic science.
He persuaded the city of Lyons in southern France to establish the world’s first CSI laboratory—it would change the face of crime fighting for ever.
Like Sherlock Holmes, the fictional detective who inspired him, he was a genius."
It all seems so exciting on “CSI,” the sleuths glamorous in Armani suits. But real forensics is messy and intricate, as its French inventor, Edmond Locard, showed in the early 1900s.

What have they done for you lately?
Lets face it, ever since his very first appearance in Beeton's Christmas Annual, outside influences have been effecting our image of Sherlock Holmes. Obviously for early readers of the Canon, the first illustrations first sha...

Is Molly Hooper really worth a third of a Sherlock? The price list from the Sherlocked convention thinks so.
The Sherlocked convention released their price list, and a sherlock holmes selfie will cost you 45 quid. How does the rest of the cast rank?

Not much to say. . .
I almost didn't review this episode. From a Canonical or Sherlockian point of view there isn't much to review. Oh, sure we can really dig and 'play the game' (no capital letters this episode) and come up with some good discus...

There's still time to visit the exhibition in the Museum of London. I liked it:
I was so glad I could travel to London and to be able to see this exhibition in the Museum of London.  The entrance to the exhibition itself was fun as one had to look for a way through the bookshelf. First there were poster...

Fellow Sherlockians, #stayweird  
"in the city of the weird" [STUD]  Sherlockians are a weird bunch by definition. We obsess over a fictional character and claim that "he never lived and so can never die." We host dinners in his honor, we make toasts to the...
