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.
This is a recording of the From House to Psych panel at 221BCon 2014.
Panelists Lindsay D. Colwell (@overeducatedgrl), Deirdre (patrick-jane.tumblr.com, @pensive1), Mixie (m6i.tumblr.com) and our very own Amy Thomas discuss TV shows that use characters who are (more or less) based on Sherlock Holmes. They cover such diverse shows as House MD, The Mentalist, Lie to Me, and Psych.All these shows feature main characters who share traits with the Great Detective.
Whether you’ve an avid fan of any of the shows discussed, or whether you’re just intrigued to look at Holmes through a different lens, this panel will be interesting and fun to listen to. The panellists talk about the shows as adaptations vs. derivations, their storytelling techniques, and ways in which characters such as Patrick Jane of The Mentalist or Greg House differ from Sherlock Holmes (and each other), and ways in which they are similar. And, of course, they touch on possible reasons why characters like these are so enduringly popular with audiences around the globe.
Sherlock Series 4 is coming and we have lots of theories, thoughts, and one hell of a wishlist. From basting turkeys at Christmas to John Watson dying in Sherlock Holmes' arms, our predictions for Series 4 will be, as Moffat says, "devastating."

When the Baker Street Babes went to Dashcon, little did we know what was in store! We are honored to have been asked, and we would like to thank our amazing fans for being a part of the podcast and quiz, and our special guest, emmagrant01, for being a brilliant addition to our live podcast episodes.
Join Babes Liz and Lyndsay and our fabulous Dashcon audience as we discuss with Emma Sherlockian AUs--from Rathbone to tunalock, from "A Cure for Boredom" to "Nothing to Make a Song About," we will chat over everything about Emma's work that makes us excited and curious about new incarnations of Sherlock Holmes, as well as aspects of the character which will always and forever remain timeless. Babes Liz and Lyndsay, who both attended Dashon, also offer a commentary at the outset of the episode. More importantly: listen to Emma being fierce, and applaud the wonderful people who contributed their time and helped make this new live ep so special!
We sit down with Mitch Cullin, author of A Slight Trick of the Mind, which tells the story of a 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes' battle with his diminishing mind.
It is 1947, and the long-retired Sherlock Holmes, now 93, lives in a remote Sussex farmhouse with his housekeeper and her young son. He tends to his bees, writes in his journal, and grapples with the diminishing powers of his mind.But in the twilight of his life, as people continue to look to him for answers, Holmes revisits a case that may provide him with answers of his own to questions he didn't even know he was asking-about life, about love, and about the limits of the mind's ability to know.

Spanning centuries of storytelling, the connections between 221B Baker Street as imagined by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the universe of Star Trek created by Gene Roddenberry cannot be ignored! Trekkies and Sherlockians own a very great deal in common, and in this special panelist episode that took place at 221B Con in Atlanta, 2014, we'll nerd out over the huge overlap in our Venn diagrams.Lyndsay Faye is one of several Babes who had loved all things Trek for almost as long as she's loved all things Holmes. Join her along with Stephen Seitz (who is a writer, editor, film critic, author of Sherlock Holmes and the Plague of Dracula, and the host of Book Talk) and Lynne Stephens (entertainment journalist and co-creator of one of the very first video mashups of footage from the original Star Trek: The Motion Picture as edited into a musical comedy, which resulted in her being invited to the set of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan by Roddenberry himself). If you harbor any interest in Spock's ancient human consulting detective ancestor, or in Data's turn with a deerstalker, tune in to this special episode!
