About Us

A fresh pop-culture angle on Sherlock. We start with the original stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but push on to include everyone from Rathbone to Cumberbatch as we ask ridiculous questions and often arrive at even more ridiculous answers. We're a couple of Sherlockians who are also fans of sci-fi, film noir, and pop-culture in general. Come join us for an often irreverent look at all things Sherlock. The 'cast is afoot!

The Copper Beeches – 1912 Silent Film to Play With Commentary

Ep. 22 – The Crooked Man

EPossibly our most diffuse and free-ranging (like chickens) episode yet. Geordie continues down his pet rabbit-hole of origins of everyday objects and industrial materials. Mike champions expanded limits to Victorian scripture knowledge. Nothing says Sherlock like linoleum and the Kings of Judea (We’re not even kidding).

Footnote 18 – If Sherlock Holmes had been written by Neil Simon

EMike’s excellent adaptation of Sherlock Holmes as written by Neil Simon (in The Odd Couple vein rather than Same Time Next Year). Voiced by your two co-hosts. Back in August with The Crooked Man. Until then … the game’s a footnote. Wish we were as dapper as Martin and Benedict.

Footnote 17- Michael Robertson, “The Baker Street Letters”

Ep. 21 – The Reigate Squires

EWatson vainly plays nursemaid to Holmes when the Great Detective falls prey to exhaustion following his stunning defeat of Baron Maupertuis. The preceding sentence outlines the more interesting story hidden in the real one. The Reigate Squires is not a favourite of Geordie’s though he does concede that it has some admirable points. As usual, […]

Footnote 16 – Mattias Boström author of From Holmes to Sherlock

EMattias Boström, author of the excellent From Holmes to Sherlock, talks to the Bootmakers of Toronto. From Holmes to Sherlock is a wonderful achievement in scholarship – it starts with Conan Doyle’s creation of Holmes, the advent of his immense popularity, and takes us through the cultural impact of Holmes. If you’re listening to this […]

Crossover – Hogtown Empire Eps. 3

EHogtown Empire is Geordie’s true crime podcast. In Episode 3 we look past the chummy portrait of Ambrose Small painted in Episode 2. It will emerge that he was NOT a nice man and there were plenty of people who would have nursed grudges against him – with good reason. Hogtown Empire is a true […]

Cross Over – Hogtown Empire Eps. 2

EHogtown Empire is Geordie’s (non-Holmes) true crime podcast (though ACD does tangentially appear a bit later.)

He was with someone nearly every minute of […]
