Potential questions for Mofftiss at Sherlocked Con, feel free to add on to or use:
– “Clearly you admire Billy Wilder’s work, the man who directed a film called ‘The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes’, considering you went out of your way to name a character after him. Do you think Wilder would be proud of your contribution thus far to the Holmesian narrative and a 21st century audience? Why or why not?”
– “Earlier this year the BBC went on record to state how involved you are with advocacy for the LGBT community, is there a reason, then, you made every LGBT on-screen character in Sherlock, thus far, a sexual predator?”
– “One of my favorite moments - and I suspect yours too - in all of Doyle’s canon comes from the Adventure of the Three Garridebs. You perfectly captured the raw emotion of the original story in that brief nod during The Final Problem. What made you choose Garridebs for one of Eurus’ mind games?”
So Jane Austen used her access to parish records and archives when she was a teenager (due to her father being a vicar) and faked two marriage records saying she married some fictional dudes. Also one of the dudes had the surname Fitzwilliam so that just makes this story even better.
Have you ever read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?
I’ve never read it, but I can quote it chapter and verse, becuase one of my fondest memories is listening to the BBC Broadcast recording during summer road trips.
Dad ended up going to a total of 19 parent-teacher conferences because my sister and I kept fucking quoting it at school. My sister did a great impression of Marvin the Paranoid Android, which made several teachers understandably worried but my “I wish i had a head like yous, Mrs. Moor. I could have hours of fun, banging it against a wall and suffer no ill consequence” darn near got me suspended.
