“It seems to me that I have done you full justice in the matter”

Sherlock fails to deliver

Despite being nominated for thirteen awards at this year’s Emmys , the BBC’s Sherlock has come away empty handed. It failed to collect anything at the Craft Awards on Saturday evening, and the luck was still out at last night’s Awards also. You can find a full list of last night’s nominees and winners here.  You’ll be able to watch Sunday night’s ceremony tonight on 5USA at 10pm.


For those who can’t get enough of Benedict Cumberbatch, here’s the star basking in The Sun.

SH3 on long finger?

According to Virgin Media Movie Watch, we’re not likely to see the follow-up to Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows anytime soon. It’s all down to the fact that RDJ & JL are pre-occupied with lots of other projects so sometime in 2014 seems the very earliest date for the movie’s release.

It’s still out there!

The BBC’s 2002 The Hound of the Baskervilles is getting a re-run thanks to the Virgin Media Player. Is it worth watching again?

Aspects Irish Literature Festival

Nothing really to do with Sherlock Holmes as far as we know, but still worthy of mention here, is the 21st Aspects Irish Literature Festival which runs from 26 – 30 September 2012 in Bangor, Co. Down.

Of specific interest to many crime fans will be Bangor’s own Colin Bateman, whose Crime Night on Thursday 27th will feature the best-selling author  in conversation with Scottish crime writer Chris Brookmyre.

In a morning event which should capture the imagination of the younger generation, Derek Landy, creator of the bestselling comic and action-packed adventure series about smart-talking skeleton detective Skulduggery Pleasant, will talk about his books and characters. It’s on Saturday 29th.

Punt PI

Nothing to do with SH either, but there’s a nice little series running on BBC Radio4 every Saturday morning called Punt P1. The series is only half-way through and you can still catch the earlier ones on the iPlayer. We particularly liked ‘The Woman in Black’ (episode 2) on Saturday 14 September. You can listen to it here.
