I come back to this question often. Every time the answer seems straightforward. Yet, it is also tough trying to delve deep into what truly attracts a reader to Conan Doyle’s stories of the London detective.
Without too much elaboration, I’ve whittled down my thoughts to a simple list. A list which I’m sure many other Holmes readers have already identified on their own as to the main criteria of why they are haunted by this literary figure.
I am excited to announce that, having successfully written my first ever book, a new Sherlock Holmes pastiche will be released on June 13th!
This new stage in my life has brought with it a mixture of emotions. It being my first publication of any sort, I’m both nervous at the expectation but also looking forward to sharing my work with you all. Continue reading “My First Ever Book! The Trials of Sherlock Holmes”
Following my recent post in which I ranked my top 10 favourite Sherlock Holmes short stories, I decided it was time to tackle and discuss briefly the four novels penned by Conan Doyle. Continue reading “The Sherlock Holmes Novels Ranked!”
It takes 3 months to film a single series of Sherlock. Two years of pre-production and a couple of months for editing, scoring and other post-production stages.

With Sherlock Series 4 now behind us, I thought it would be a good exercise to try and determine what I think are my favourite episodes from the series. I’ve been thinking a lot about this during the in-between series hiatus and, as difficult as it is to do, I think I’ve cracked the case!
This is because I feel like putting most of the episodes on the same rank, side-by-side, but then again it would defeat the purpose of a “list”.
