mymetalphantom: (Holmes/ attempt at  not)
I heard a BBC Radio 7 comedy thing this morning; a spoof of Sherlock Holmes. It wasn't great (in my opinion), but this bit cracked me up, and set me up for a not-so-bad day.

Lestrade: I have a body I'd like to show you.

Holmes: Oh, Lestrade, you're such a flirt.

Re: BBC's Sherlock and my fangirly ways.

This thought had sort of been in my mind since the start but after the last episode I was completely and utterly sold on the whole idea.

Kind of a spoiler, but only if you haven't seen the first episode.

A Study in Pink

This is the BBC, modern day adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson.

The plot sort of follows A Study in Scarlet but there are a lot of changes. A lot. So many changes that to say more would spoil it for those who haven’t seen it; but let me just say that if you were in STUD for the Mormon bashing, then you’re going to be very disappointed XD

So for this, I will just talk about the characters and themes and how well they have been adapted for a modern setting.

These are just some quick thoughts that I had jotted down then shaped into a vaguely coherent structure. There aren’t really any spoilers, especially if you're already familiar with the canon.

Apologies for babble.

It’s a three patch problem. )

Okay cats and kittens, I got some goodies for you!

I had precisely nothing to do today so I finished making my Lestrade icons.

As a bonus I also uploaded the Russian Holmes icons that have been clogging up my hard drive for like, ages!
