My second book Close to Holmes is to be published soon in Spanish.
Yesterday I purchased signed copies of A Scandal in Bohemia and The Hound of the Baskervilles. Two comic-book versions of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Czech illustrator Petr Kopl.
Last week I read articles in both the Haslemere Herald and Surrey Advertiser re the collapse of the deal between Stepping Stones (SS)/DFN Foundation (DFN) and the Undershaw Preservation Trust (UPT).

Now this is a not a new book but, as it has formed part of my research, I felt I owed it a review.
The situation with Undershaw can come across as a little confusing. Here is my assessment of where it is at the moment.
A little over a year ago I wrote a post entitled The Elementary Problem. In this post I made the observation that Elementary was probably being judged more harshly for its mistakes than its BBC counterpart.
When the BBC announced Sherlock there were mutterings about having a contemporary Holmes. I was amongst those who went on record to say that we’d prefer a Victorian Holmes (I have nothing against Sherlock before you start lighting torches). In response there were people who said that Victorian Holmes had been done to death.
But has it really?
I've said before that I don't want Moriarty to really be back in Sherlock. Here I propose the villiains that series four should really draw on.
Without beating around the bush, as we say here, I’ll get straight to the point. While Europe and the U.S. are spoilt with conventions, Q&As, autographing sessions, meet-and-greets, special appearances, awards ceremonies and societies (need I continue?) we Sherlockians in Australia must survive on breadcrumbs.....
In the event that you've not watched His Last Vow yet please keep away from this post. You will not be happy at what is revealed herein.
I don’t pretend to know an awful lot about the activities of fandom – and by this I am referring to the social media savvy fans whose Sherlockian interest largely revolves around BBC Sherlock – but as a body it can be awfully touchy and has a tendency to the very intolerance it seems to identify and abhor in others.
My new "partner in blog" Silke Ketelsen now offers up her assessment of series three. You know the drill folks. Put your tin hats on and strap yourselves in.
The last post by Silke has attracted some ire on Twitter with some thinking that I was the author. In view of this I thought I would offer my assessment of series three. It is slightly spoilery so you may find some surprises if you've not been watching all the trailers so beware.
This post was written by new regular contributor, Silke Ketelsen and was written before episode three of series three was broadcast. As those who know her have come to expect, it is robust and pulls no punches.
Right, I'm going to be as blunt as I can. The following guest post reviews The Empty Hearse and contains spoliers. If Sherlock series three is yet to screen in your country I suggest you step away from this post.

Okay. So you’re about to compose the story of Sherlock’s return. What kind of plot do you want to craft?
