“I’m a bit of a single-stick expert, as you know. I took most of them on my guard. It was the second man that was too much for me.”

Arthur Conan Doyle, The adventure of the illustrious client

Single-stick fighting DOES exist!

‘Speak softly and carry a big stick,’ has new meaning for me now.

We owe you so much.
Happy Birthday old boy!

Conan Doyle, You Troll.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, enjoyed practical jokes. He is said to have once sent a telegram to twelve of his friends, all people of great significance and power. The telegram said: ‘Flee at once, the secret is discovered’. Within 24 hours all twelve had left the country.

Even months after the airing of BBC’s unresolved take on The Final Problem a shadow remains over the Sherlockian community.
The 121st anniversary of that fateful plunge into The Reichenbach Falls (or leap off of St. Bart’s) is approaching. May 4, 1891 is widely recognized as the date Professor Moriarty met his demise and Sherlock Holmes vanished, leaving his trusty comrade behind. Source

Central London overfloweth with gorgeous, intelligent women with a thirst for murder. The Baker Street Babes: The Web’s Only All Female Sherlock Holmes Podcast.

The Baker Street Babes are an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans who talk about everything from canon to Cumberbatch, Charles Augustus Milverton to Jude Law, and dancing men to Jeremy Brett. We love Sherlock Holmes and we love having well informed, but also quite fun discussions about it. We’re all young and we’re all females, but we’re all die hard Sherlockians/Holmesian. It’s a demographic within the Sherlock Holmes fandom that is new and growing and doesn’t yet have a voice. We hope to become that voice and we want to prove that we’re not just going to coo over Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch, as lovely as they are, but that we know the canon and want to have discussions about it as well.

Eat your heart out Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

There are two ways you can listen to the podcast! You can stream it or download it on podOmatic or subscribe via iTunes and have it download directly to your iTunes. Click on your choice below!
