I looked older and he assumed I had to be the clever one. A Study in Scarlet enlivened a weekend with his grandparents. He acknowledges how much they took from the original when producing the BBC series. They both envy anyone reading my stories for the first time. I know that not really helping keeping the bookshop in business but you could buy something else whilst you were there and what about buying these editions for someone you know who enjoyed the BBC series but has never read my original stories on which the series was based?
The pilot version of A Study In Pink has a subtly different plot and is nowhere near as polished as the broadcast version. But there are some memorable shots including one of Holmes on a roof looking for the pink suitcase I think in a sort of Batman pose! His new house, named Undershaw, represented a fresh start but it was also the beginning of a dramatic decade that saw him fall in love, stand for parliament, fight injustice and be awarded a knighthood.
However, for his many admirers, the most important event of that decade was the return of Sherlock Holmes — whom he felt had cast a shadow over his life.
This volume is not released until December 6th. Another bumper year for Holmes fans and with a new film and a new series of Sherlock coming soon there must be more to come!

This is the first Sherlock Holmes novel written by Anthony Horowitz. That would raise the interesting possibility of another screen Holmes! Alistair Duncan has already published a review of the book and as usual this is an admirably balanced critique. He points out a glaring chronological error and, as I have noted above, the many Canonical references, some of which work better than others.
For me, one of the strangest examples of this is the introduction of Professor Moriarty, who has nothing to do with the main plot, who promptly disappears again after making me promise to pretend I have never met him when I do eventually get a glimpse of him at Victoria Station when Holmes and I are heading for the continent a year later in The Final Problem.
He does get himself into a knot by using all these references to other cases. Episodes were broadcast Monday November 7th to Friday November 11th. Posted in Books , Pastiches. Following on from the release of the first collection on six compact discs, this Sherlock Holmes Further Collection BBC Audio comprises six more compact discs with another twelve of my stories from the Canon with Carleton Hobbs as Holmes and Norman Shelley as me.
The packaging of this second set differs from the first. The six compact disks are stacked together on a spindle rather than in pairs in separate 2CD cases and this may result in some wear over time. One quibble though. The track listings are incorrect. Someone has assumed that each disc contains 20 tracks and that each of the two stories on each disc takes up 10 tracks.
This is not the case as my correct track listing below shows. I have also given the full broadcast date. As I usually transfer compact disks to iTunes I also noticed that the track listing have not been uploaded into Gracenote where iTunes get its track information from so there is no information downloaded into iTunes to identify each track other than the track number.

He always seems to prefer to complain about my romanticising of his investigations instead! So it is quite a shock when I find that he has decided to put the record straight about his first encounter with Russell back in April when there was a darkness in his own mind that she, quite literally stumbling upon him, extinguished how can you extinguish darkness?
He did not realise the danger that was shadowing Russell in those dark months following his own little victory in August the previous year His Last Bow.
As Holmes explained to me, after I had recovered from my faint, on his sudden return that spring of , he was never in that awful abyss at the base of the Reichenbach Falls. When reports differ on any aspect of a drawing, I typically provide what appears to be the most authoritative version. Letters to John P. The stories are not in chronological order, and the only characters common to all twelve are Holmes and Dr. Annual dinner, View item s Includes dinner menu, signed dinner menu from The Woman dinner, and toast presented by Kenneth C.
He had, of course, moved to Sussex and taken our housekeeper Mrs Hudson with him away from the dangers of London, and I remember him telling me the story with laughter in his voice. This must have been only a few weeks after the actual meeting as it was shortly before that the Lusitania was sunk by a German U-boat and Holmes was concerned about my planned trip to America the following day. It was therefore a while before I met the young lady who did so much to cheer up Holmes and keep him away from his darker moods and even darker practices.
But I am probably rambling on a little too much when you could read this exciting tale for yourself! You can find out more about Russell here. Tags: Mary Russell Posted in Uncategorized. As Holmes explained to me, after I had recovered from my faint, on his sudden return that spring of , he was never in that awful abyss at the base of the Reichenbach Falls.
He had used his knowledge of the Japanese system of wrestling, known as Bartitsu to escape from Professor Moriarty. Barton-Wright was an engineer and his work took him all around the world. He spent a period living in Japan where he became fascinated by jujitsu and took lessons in the art. The book is a neat pocket-sized volume so that you can have it handy at all times with chapters entitled:.
One puzzle remains. Looking forward to later in the year. Sherlock Holmes continues to have a perennial allure as the ultimate sleuth. A domesticated Holmes, by contrast, would have faced Doyle with a new set of problems to solve. Much better keep him as he is, already an unlikely figure in Victorian England in his absence of interest in women but far more so today, so leading to the modern need to look for further explanations. We know from the originals that Holmes took up bee-keeping in Sussex.
But how did he fare? What happens to a great mind when it ages? Can this process in retrospect tell us anything interesting about the person involved at the younger age when we knew him best? Here we find Holmes aged 89 and in poor health. This is not a purely random affliction. In another passage, he adds that.
In particular he feared dying in some undignified way, on the jakes or with his face in the porridge …. The prospect of setting himself on fire with his own pipe conformed to his worst ideas of the indignity that death would one day visit upon him Attempting to solve one last problem, he feels he has failed, and suffers what are for him the terrible consequences of finding he is no longer able to cope as he would once have wished. Or, as Chabon puts it,. Meaning drained from the world like light fleeing the operation of an eclipse.
The vast body of experience and lore, of corollaries and observed results, of which he felt himself the master, was at a stroke rendered useless.
The world around him was a page of alien text It is more a matter of revealing his essentially human fallibility. Quoting Chabon again,.
