Central London overfloweth with gorgeous, intelligent woman with a thirst for murder. The Baker Street Babes: The Web's Only All Female Sherlock Holmes Podcast. Eat your heart out Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The Baker Street Babes are an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans who talk about everything from canon to Cumberbatch, Charles Augustus Milverton to Jude Law, and dancing men to Jeremy Brett. We love Sherlock Holmes and we love having well informed, but also quite fun discussions about it.
Kafers and Taylor traveled to Birmingham to attend Starfury's Elementary Con and interview New York Times Best Selling author Tony Lee on one of the panels.
The girls and Tony discuss Sherlock Holmes, Tony's deep and unabiding love for Professor Moriarty, and talk everything writing from ideas to how Tony fleshes out his own work. Thoughtful questions from the audience, and lots of love.
Tony Lee is a multiple-time New York Times Best-seller List Author and Eagle Award winning Writer. He has written for Radio 4, The BBC, commerical television in both the UK and the US, magazines, and both local and national newspapers. You can find out more about Tony on his website at http://www.tonylee.co.uk/
BSB Amy has a new book! Silent Hive is a new story about Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler that ties into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original story “The Five Orange Pips." We chat to her about what it's like having three pastiches out, a LOT about The Five Orange Pips, and how to start writing your own pastiches.
Amy has previously written The Detective and The Woman and The Detective, The Woman and The Winking Tree. Silent Hive is the third in the series, and it continues her exploration of the lives of Holmes and Adler post-Reichenbach. The new story stands alone, but if you’ve read the other two, you’ll find references and continued plotlines to enjoy.
Here’s what the book is about:
The mysterious death of Irene Adler’s bees leads to a consultation with Sherlock Holmes and the discovery of a sinister connection to a case many years in the past. When this threat imperils the safety of everyone the detective holds dear, he and The Woman are forced to use every ounce of their ingenuity to save their friends.
Kafers and Taylor traveled to Birmingham to attend Starfury's Elementary Con and got to have a brief chat with Sherlock's Lars Mikkelsen (Charles Augustus Magnussen), Jonathan Aris (Anderson), and Arwel Wyn Jones (set designer), as well as some cosplayers.
What were their favorite scenes? How much does Arwel like to tease the fans? And how did Jonathan scare the shit out of the camera man?

Fan fiction is being brought to the screen. You read that right. Curly chats with the team behind ‘A Finger Slip: The Webseries’ and finds out where the project came from, why it’s important, and something about pancakes.
Most importantly, you should check out their Kickstarter, which is nearly at its goal! But keep funding it, because the more money they have, the better this web series will be.
Don’t know what A Finger Slip is about… well here’s a handy summary:
A fan fiction by Pawtal (inspired by Sherlock Holmes) in which John and Sherlock accidentally meet through texts as teenagers. Read it.

It seemed like Sherlock Series 3 only started less than two weeks ago... oh... wait. Yup, it's finale time, and what a finale it was! Sherlock Series 3 is over just like that, and with it there wer emore twists and turns and exploration than we've ever seen before. No more so than in His Last Vow.
BSBs Curly, Lyndsay, Kafers, Ardy, Amy, & Sarah get their teeth into His Last Vow.
We debate, we have opinions, we change opinions, and we all agree that Charles Augustus Magnussen is the best... in a "he's horrible I hate him" kind of way.
Questions from followers and listeners, our thoughts on THE ENDING and what Series 4 may have in store for us.
