Mycroft Holmes + places: 1/? The Diogenes Club

“There are many men in London, you know, who, some from shyness, some from misanthropy, have no wish for the company of their fellows. Yet they are not averse to comfortable chairs and the latest periodicals. It is for the convenience of these that the Diogenes Club was started, and it now contains the most unsociable and unclubable men in town. No member is permitted to take the least notice of any other one. Save in the Stranger’s Room, no talking is, under any circumstances, allowed, and three offences, if brought to the notice of the committee, render the talker liable to expulsion. My brother was one of the founders, and I have myself found it a very soothing atmosphere."  - The Greek Interpreter (x)

Mark Gatiss - Opening number: Voodoo Lady - The League of Gentlemen (Live at Drury Lane) [x]

“Ju ju hey hey, Voodoo Lady. Don’t mean maybe, Black Magic Chile. The clock struck 13, And I was searching for that midnight woman of my darkest dreams. She looked right through me. Her spells undo me. My Voodoo Lady, sweet witchcraft maid. Voodoo Lady, Voodoo Lady, I go goo. When you do voodoo, Then she smiled, oh so sweetly, thrilled me like a Dennis Wheatley. She’s got hexes like no one has, but Baron Samedi warned me, don’t mess with that. Voodoo jazz. Voodoo Lady, Voodoo Lady, I go goo when you do voodoo. Ju ju hey hey, don’t mean maybe, Voodoo Lady and the chills you gave me, I beseech you from Satan save me. No one knows the secret of the black magic box of myVoodoo Lady, don’t mean maybe, Ju ju hey hey, Black Magic Chile.”
