Hardy and Miller are back!

david-tennant-and-olivia-colman-580702I’m so happy to announce that the brilliant tvseries Broadchurch is back for a 3rd series in February and this time it has nothing to do with series 1 and 2.

Can’t wait and I think I will just use the rest of January reliving the brilliant 2 series and the great detective work by the most dysfunctional copper duo I have seen I LOVE IT!!!

To read more about series 3 read this article Broadchurch series 3. It has everything about what the theme is for this series, and introducing some new characters.

Sherlock goes Shakespeare!

Well as many of you Sherlock fans out might know Sherlock is back on telly, but I feel that Benedict have forgot he’s not on The Hollow Crown… in the second episode The Lying Detective Sherlock goes all Henry the fifth in 221B.s_s4_e2_0822

Set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide! Hold hard the breath and build up every spirit to his full height! On! On, you noblest English whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof! And you, good yeoman, Whose limbs were made in England, show us here the mettle of your pasture.
Which I doubt not for there is none of you here so mean and base that hath not noble lustre in your eyes! I see you standing like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start! The game’s afoot.

Well it also proves that Doyle borrowed a phrase from the great Bard – with iconic the game’s afoot phrase.

Okay I have a last thing I really want to get off my chest. If you have found me on social media you might have seen that I would have loved Tom Hiddleston to play Sherrinford, but that will not happen, so I was glad to hear the Henry the fifth speech… the closest thing to get Hiddles on Sherlock, but if there will ever be a series 5 please let Hiddleston have a part on there!

The Night Manager

635878802254689284-The-Night-Manager-AMCOkay now there’s not long till The Night Manager airs on BBC, and I have just started reading the book by John le Carré, and i must say that it’s great and I can’t wait to see the series!

SHERLOCKED Convention 2016

headerOkay today there were info about the SHERLOCKED convention in London – tickets value/sale, location and the first guest was also announced.

The guests are Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue, Mark Gatiss (who is the lead guest) and for the first time Natasha O’Keeffe (The Abominable Bride).

From the header photo on their website it is also going to have a touch from the Victorian times, and included in the weekend pass for adults there is a Victorian set photo.

I really want to go, but my budget is tight right now so I am going to wait a bit to see who else is going to attend before I buy ticket or a pass… so hopefully they will announce more guests soon so I can make my mind up whether or not to go.

I attended last years convention and it was the greatest three days of 2015!

You can read more info here: Sherlocked convention

There will also be a convention in the US, but more news is going to be released soon

John quote of the day – woman in a man’s world

S_TAB_0656

I AM observant in some ways, just as Holmes is quite blind in others…Amazing what one has to do to get ahead in a man’s world.


Yes Sherlock has some great lines in The Abominable Bride, but we should never John’s amazing lines and observation skills 🙂

 

Moriarty quote of the day – your rooms smell so manly!

S_TAB_1867

I like your rooms. They smell so..manly…Well, you are always away, on your little adventures for The Strand.
Tell me, does the illustrator travel with you? Do you have to pose during your deductions?…By the way, you have a surprisingly comfortable bed. Did you know that dust is largely composed of human skin? Doesn’t taste the same, though, you want your skin fresh. Just a little crispy.

– Moriarty, The Abominable Bride

Is the game on or afoot? – contains spoilers

img_1785The wait is over and The Abominable Bride has finally aired.

So they have told us time and time again that this is a one-off special episode and that is has nothing to do with series 4 (which starts filming in April), but my question hende the title, is that really the case?!

I loved The Abominable Bride and *SPOILER*, how it tied together with the modern version – yes we also see the modern Sherlock where series 3 ended and we find out some secrets about Sherlock – that if you have read any of Doyle’s stories you’ll know Holmes had a drug problem.

The episode was in the spirit of Doyle’s stories and there are a lot of references – so if you’re a fan of the books you will have a field day guessing them all!

The episode starts out in Victorian times and I must say it brought me back to my favourite Holmes Jeremy Brett. The characters interaction is slightly different – or should I say more witty, and it made for some hillarious moments both between Holmes and Watson, but also between the two Holmes brothers… And now for another *SPOILER* I now get why Mycroft is on a diet in the current version – because he is SO fat in this episode it reminded me of the very fat man in Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life. Although in the books Mycroft is heavier than Sherlock I did not think was on these scales!

The whole episode surrounds the case of the Bride that apparently kills men even after she is dead – a ghost, which Holmes do not think is the case. The case brings Holmes in deep and even deeper into his mind palace, where he meets an old friend Moriarty. Yes the brilliant Andrew Scott is back as the Napoleon of crime Professor Moriarty.

This was actually my favourite moment, when Moriarty as a part of Sherlock’s mind palace helps him with the case.

But it is also during these mind palace and drug fueled stages that we pop in and out of Victorian time and current time, but it flows very well with the story!

I don’t think I will go into more detail now. But my verdict is that this episode is great in the sense that as I said earlier ties great with the modern version and I think it makes for a great start to series 4 – a little wish for new series please bring back Moriarty, I would love it if he was alive but it is okay if he is only a part of Sherlock’s mind palace.

It also has a gothic feel to it which I love because it is my favourite literary genre, so my final verdict is I give it 5.5 out of 6 stars.
