Steven Moffat talks about Sherlock and John: “A lifelong Partnership”…

… which is (I assume not only in my books) good news regarding the possible longevity of the “Sherlock” (BBC) Series.

“These are still the formative years of Sherlock Holmes, [the] important thing about the series is (…) that those two men are still young and are still at the beginning of  what they don’t yet know is gonna be a lifelong partnership.” (Steven Moffat, starting about 18:18 in the video)

I do consider it good news, especially regarding the famous three teaser words “Rat”, “Wedding” and “Bow”, that have been given to us by the makers of “Sherlock” as an outlook onto the yet to come third season. Especially the third word “bow” seems to be hinting at “The Last Bow” of Sherlock Holmes in the Canon and thus a conclusion of the BBC series. And WHO WANTS THAT????

So, when the creators of this particular “Sherlock” consider Sherlock and John “still at the beginning” during Season Two… then I don’t assume they are planning to be done with them any time soon… What say you?


Sherlock BBC, Staffel 3…

Vielen Dank (und Grüße) an das Sherlockian Newsdesk für die Info! Tja, besonders aussagekräftig ist das Foto ja nicht… aber zumindest lässt es Spielraum für die Fantasie… und überhaupt, jedes Zeichen, dass es da drüben mit der 3. Staffel weiter geht, ist für mich als Fan schon mal ein gutes Zeichen! 🙂

Happy Birthday, Mr. Holmes!

Shame on me – without the holmesslash people over at yahoogroups I would have actually forgotten the “birthday” of our favourite supersleuth, Mr. Sherlock Holmes.

Happy Birthday!!!

YES, I am actually aware that he is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s literary creation and therefore the matter of a birthday seems a bit… obsolete. But to most Sherlockians, Holmesians, or whatever you want to call us, it is not… so the 6th of January was kind of agreed upon (see Klinger, Leslie: The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes).
