Episode 6: Lyndsay Faye & The Pastiche LISTEN HERE is FULL of Sherlock Holmes jokes, BBC Sherlock jokes, and even some Cabin Pressure jokes… did you notice? Do you think we’re all insane yet?
As always, we love feedback, and we think this episode in particular is fantastic for all Sherlock Holmes fans. Not only is Lyndsay Faye amazing, she’s talented and insanely knowledgeable about the canon.
Are you a fanfiction writer? You need to listen. Hardcore. Not only do we talk about the importance and history of fanfiction, but we talk an intense amount about pastiches. The pastiches you should read as well. Yeah, add more to your reading list. Now.
Enjoy chatting about the sexuality of Sherlock Holmes? We go into that as well and into all the facets of it. Was Sherlock Holmes asexual? Was he heterosexual? Was he homosexual? Was he Watson sexual? Was he Sherlock sexual? Or did he (and Arthur Conan Doyle) just not care?
Who owns the copyright to Sherlock Holmes? And in what country can you not reference The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes without emptying your pockets?
Listen and find out just what John “Three Continents” Watson means and why his mustache is made of coconut, why Lyndsay fancies the “Glorious Cumberbunny”, and even some dorkiness about Jack the Ripper.
Lyndsay Faye, author of the Sherlock Holmes pa
stiche Dust & Shadow, graces us with her amazing presence in NYC for a fantastic interview. Babes Curly & Jenn talk with Lyndsay at length about our favourite Consulting Detective, pastiche work, why there can’t be a Watson without a Holmest (and vis versa), sexuality, and cake… what? This interview is seriously fantastic and every Sherlock Holmes fan needs to listen.
Afterwards Ardy, Taylor, and Curly talk more about pastiches, as well as fan fiction, telling you where to find some good ones and where to find some rather interesting ones. Learn everything you need to know about the Sherlock Holmes copyright, and join Jenn & Curly for a “Watson Adventure” with out report on our amazing scavanger hunt in Greenwich Village, NYC.
Wait? Sherlock Holmes CAKE POPS?! Ohhh yeah. Curly likes to bake, so she made these treats for Lyndsay and Jenn!
The very short very anticlimactic Sherlock panel just finished at Big Screen with Gatiss coming on stage for 10min to be his usual cryptic self.
The only new interesting thing he mentionned is that the Great Game cliffhanger is resolved and then the Scandal in Belgravia story begins much LATER.
There is a time break between the two! That probably takes Irene out of the equation for the cliffhanger or the Moriarty arc…
Other than that, nothing to declare :D
Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes has caused a lot of controversy with Sherlockians and Holmesians alike, so Babes: Curly, Kafers, Ardy, and Taylor take it on. Why they love it, what they don’t love about it… and why is the Bromance JUST SO AMAZING?!
We welcome new BSB Taylor into the crew, rescue Ardy from Skype Purgatory, weigh in on Rachel McAdams’ Irene Adler, and let you know about some fabulous things including a Rupert Graves shot glass and a bunch of Scots that are making Sherlock Holmes headway of their own. It’s Episode 5 and it’s less than an hour long!! Also listen to the hauntingly beautiful Ghosts of Baker Street by Sam Hoare at the end. It’s quite lovely.
Sam Hoare: I’m 16, from Oxford, UK. I sing, and have done basically since I discovered the function of vocal chords, and I’ve written song since I could hold a pencil. I play the guitar (self taught) and I write my own songs, an equal mix between fandom and original. I write stuff for Doctor Who, Sherlock and Harry Potter. They’re basically my life. I love Sherlock, and the original Sherlock Holmes books, and have found that the fandom has very quickly become my favourite of all time, because the people are so creative and lovely, and so supportive of whatever random creation I throw at them to give opinions on. And, I hope to definitely move out to London and attempt to make a career out of writing and performing my own songs, be them about silly things that I become obsessed with or real, serious musician things.
