David Welsborough, Cabinet Minister

Big fan of Margaret Thatcher

DAVID: Oh, it’s a sort of shrine, I suppose, really.
DAVID: Bit of a fan of Mrs T. Big hero of mine when I was getting started.

(The first of six Thatcher busts gets smashed at the Welsborough home.)

The Welsborough Family


Major Barrymore, Commanding Officer of Baskerville

Big fan of Margaret Thatcher

SHERLOCK:  Copy of “The Downing Street Years”; one, two, three, four, five separate biographies of Thatcher.

‘Maggie’ is the code which unlocks 'Baskerville’

(Including the 'Downing Street Years’ - this makes six books about Thatcher, if I’m not mistaken)

Father and son - Barrymore senior - Falklands veteran.

 The Barrymore family? Mummy, Daddy, brother, sister?

A lot of interesting parallels.

Coincidence? The universe? Or something else?   


I leave you to your own deductions.  Thanks @callie-ariane for the scripts.

If you’ve given money to a political campaign, brace yourself.

You’re going to be seeing a whole lot of emails in your inbox over the next couple of weeks, asking for money as the year draws to a close.

Those emails will take many different forms:

  • Urgent pleas to help boost totals before campaigns have to make their fundraising results public. “Dropping out,” read a recent note from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign. The explanation for the alarming subject line came from an email Cruz supposedly wrote from his iPhone: “Jindal dropped out of the race b/c he was short on funds.”
  • Outraged responses to news of the day. “Media says I’m to blame,” wrote Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul in the wake of recent terrorist attacks.
  • They’ll try to sell you things. (Black Friday Deal: Get Your Donald J. Trump Supporter Pack Today!)
  • And a whole lot of candidates will want to hang out with you. From former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “dinner?” And from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, “Friend, let’s meet.” Sometimes you’ll even get an invite to win dinner with a real-life nonpolitical celebrity. “I’d love to meet you and your family,” Drew Barrymore wrote to Clinton supporters earlier this month.

Here’s the thing: as odd as some of these messages appear to be, campaigns know they work. Most political operations conduct meticulous tests to see which appeals work best, before they blast notes out to their bases.
