Summer Baker Street Journal - my favourites

Yesterday I received the Summer issue of The Baker Street Journal and I began working my way through it on my commute.

The highlights for me are Chris Redmond's Dr. Hill Barton Pays a Call and Victoria Rood's The "Masculine Novel". The former does some digging into the questions arising from one of my favourite stories The Illustrious Client. The latter looks at the role of female characters in the Canon and how and why they have been depicted.

I enjoyed reading Redmond's article the most but found the most food for thought in Rood's.

At the time of writing, I'm one article away from the end but I'm saving that for the journey home.
