Sherlock in cinemas

As you will know by now (you have been warned!), ‘The Abominable Bride,’ the Sherlock Special episode, will air on BBC One on New Year’s Day 2016. For the first time, for a Sherlock episode, it will also be shown simultaneously, in cinemas across the UK/Ireland. The list of over 100 cinemas (including website links) can be accessed on our Home page, also the three trailers (including the latest extended version). For local crew, we’ve also provided a link to Odeon Belfast, the only Sherlock venue in NI. Best advice for those who want to see it in cinemas is not to delay. These shows will include extra content (not on TV).

It’s an Elementary date!

Joe Marino (Elementary and Man. City fan!) says that Season 4 of Elementary will air in the UK on 19 November – it’s on Sky Living at 9.00pm. In the meantime, SL is repeating (again) Season 1 (Mon./Tues./Wed./Fri.). Joe is not the only crewmate who loves Elementary; Maria McCann and Paul Murphy have been known to wax lyrical about it, and its many attractions are not entirely lost on yours truly either.

A Novel event

Our crewmate Geri Schear’s second novel, Sherlock Holmes and The Other Woman (MX, Paperback, 328 pages, £10.99) was released on November 4th. Her first Holmes novel was A Biased Judgement. Geri tells me that she’ll be launching the book at The Gutter Bookshop in Temple Bar, Dublin on November 11th at 6:30pm. She’ll also giving some readings from the book in the Kells, County Meath Library on November 19th at 7pm.

“A bargain everyone”

Our eagle-eyed webmaster, Maurice ‘Spike’ Milligan, has spotted a new guide book, The Sherlock Holmes Book, edited by experts David Stuart Davies and Barry Forshaw, at Sainsbury’s Holywood Exchange for the knock-down price of £6.99 (DK, Hardcover, 352 pages, 1 Oct 2015, £16.99). The price, as I write this, is £12.99 but has it for less, £10.68. Presumably it’s on sale in other Sainsbury’s stores.

Not forgetting………

Anthony Horowitz’s Moriarty, is in paperback format for the first time (Orion, 5 Nov.). Read Alex’s Kane’s review, which he wrote when the novel was first published (Hardback, Oct., 2014).

Robert Ryan’s A Study in Murder, his third Watson novel, is  also just out (Simon & Schuster, Hardback, 8 Nov.).
