the adventures of sherlock holmes

I think that the biggest tragedy in my life is the fact that I will never be able to tell Jeremy Brett how much I love him as a person, and how he was perfect as Sherlock Holmes that watching him acting wasn’t like watching someone acting at all, it was like watching Sherlock Holmes in flesh and bones in front of me and I was never ready for that experience and I will gratefully never recover from it, because I always feel like this everytime I watch the granada version.

“Several times during the last three years I have taken up my pen to write to you, but always I feared lest your affectionate regard for me should tempt you to some indiscretion which would betray my secret.”

  • Sherlock Holmes Adaptations: Sherlock Holmes is clean and respectable; the epitome of a British gentleman. He is STERN and STOIC and NEVER JOKES ABOUT ANYTHING
  • Canon Sherlock Holmes: *is an angry college dropout who lives in a pile of his own trash*
  • Canon Sherlock Holmes: *spends 90% of any given story screwing with everyone*
  • Canon Sherlock Holmes: *almost starts crying because Lestrade was nice to him*

A clever detective, a modest army doctor, and a sallow inspector walk into a pub… This bookmark is based off of “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.” If you haven’t read the original stories, I highly recommend you do! They’re so much fun. (Also, I have some exciting news: soon, these bookmarks will be for sale!)

“Everything comes in circles. […] The old wheel turns, and the same spoke comes up. It’s all been done before, and will be again.”  - Arthur Conan Doyle  

It’s always 1895.

“ The wheel turns. Nothing is ever new” - BBC’s Sherlock Holmes

Every fairy tale needs a good old fashioned villain.

Happy Birthday, Nigel Bruce!

Born 4 February 1895, and best known as Dr. Watson to Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes in the classic Hollywood films, made from 1939–46, and the radio series based (sometimes) on the Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries—14 films and over 200 radio programs in total. Unlike the stories from which the films and radio program drew inspiration, Bruce’s Watson was a bumbling but lovable piece of comic relief, which many of us still fondly remember having first caught the films on the local TV station’s Saturday afternoon matinée.

I doubt I have enough followers to actually respond to this but I’m in a writing senior seminar class and we basically get to write whatever we want during it. Would a completely gender bent web series of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes set in modern times be of any interest to anyone? Like I actually want to write and create a web series of it. Would anyone watch? 

Update: I’m a writing major and I promise I’m not super shitty at it! I’ve already turned in a few scenes and gotten some pretty positive feedback. I’m just curious to see if there would be any viewership before I invest actual money into producing it.
