The MOD letter is interesting, we now know he was working there in 2003 and had classified status in 2008 thanks to that file. Also the contractor flight crew form is dated May ‘95, pretty early in his carer - not sure what dept you’d be in for that sort of thing, but sounds MOD ish too. Does that sound right, that he worked up the ranks there & then went more freelance as he seems to be now, or just all part of his cover?


“I don’t want you to be unhappy, But I want you to be safe.
My hands are tied right now, but hold on a little longer, for me.
Because I need to
save you from that dangerous time bomb. Even if I need to sacrifice my own life for it.
ps: I’m going to burn this letter before you get the chance to read it. It would be
dangerous If mary gets her hands on it - SH

on the thirteenth day of Sherlockian, (The Sherlock “Christmas” has more than 12 days, dont mind me.) Littlefirefly00 gave to me: Another “dear John” gifset and holy hell I typed more than usual. Story time, I guess?


Happy 16 December!! Just 16 days to go now :D y'all ready for this? I’m certainly not!! And after the “serious” Q&”A” from yesterday, I feel more frustrated than ever. But it’ll be alright! (I hope)


How many friends do you imagine he has?

When the death of Sherlock Holmes was first announced in Tit-Bits on 24 November 1893, there was an outcry. Letters were sent to the proprietors of the Strand Magazine imploring them to use their influence to persuade Conan Doyle to revoke the sentence of death, and others went to him direct. “I never thought they would take it so much to heart,” he said later. “I got letters from all over the world reproaching me on the subject. One, I remember, from a lady whom I did not know, began ‘You Beast.’”

A fangirl reacts to The Final Problem.

Something positive you want to say to Mark Gatiss/Ben Mansfield?

As I am going to be able to give Mark Gatiss and Ben Mansfield (Primeval) a letter or something similar, I wanted to ask you all if you have something POSITIVE you want to tell them (or one of them, it’s gonna be a letter each). If so, just write to me and I’ll write it down and give it to him!

You can either just answer to this post or send something in my inbox - if you do so with your username, I’ll include it, but you can send it anonymously as well, if you like. 

I don’t know when exactly I’m going to give it to him, but probably on Thursday (16 Feb) or Friday (17 Feb).

Also - you can also send me things for Ian Hallard (Mark Gatiss’ hubby).

I’d be happy about a signal boost, so more people can see this!

Tagging some people under the cut who might want to see this.

In 1893, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Final Problem” was released, a short story which killed both Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty.
And in Victorian time where there was nothing like what we have now to communicate with our beloved writers, in order to make their voice to be heard by Canon Doyle these victorian Sherlock Holmes fans wrote him letters, wore mourning armbands and protested to bring back our favorite detective to life.

But today If you criticize the creators of BBC Sherlock for queerbaiting you simply get blocked.
