    Episode 150: Elementary!

    “"Excellent!" I cried. "Elementary," said he.” [CROO]    We'll be honest. The CBS drama series Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu doesn't get enough attention here on I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.   It's largely because Scott and Burt haven't carved out the time to watch it. As a weekly series, there's much more to absorb than the three-episode series that the BBC produced every few years.   Fortunately, James O'Leary, a regular contributor on the IHOSE site, has made it his business to watch, follow, and dissect Elementary on behalf of all Sherlockians. And we welcome him to the show to talk about its strengths, its longevity, and how the writers are doing a wonderful job of engaging Sherlock Holmes fans along the way.   Please try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet and try to win a prize – you don't need to be a Patron of the Arts – every listener is eligible to participate!

    Episode 149: Conan Doyle for the Defense

    “requisitioned for the defense” [VALL]    Conan Doyle's real-life turn as Sherlock Holmes has typically been shared through the George Edalji case. But there was another case involving one Oscar Slater that has been more of a footnote than a feature. Author Margalit Fox set out to change that.   In Conan Doyle for the Defense: The True Story of a Sensational British Murder, a Quest for Justice, and the World's Most Famous Detective Writer, she has crafted a fascinating true-crime narrative thanks to her career as an explanatory writer (most notably as a senior writer for The New York Times).   Our conversation with Ms. Fox ranges from the origin of her fascination with this story, to the societal prejudices and corruption that weighed on the victim and verdict, to Conan Doyle's own revulsion with the actions of the innocent man, and takes us from the streets of Glasgow to the barren north shore of Scotland, home of a gulag-like prison that held an innocent man for 18 years.   It's a fascinating and tragic story that fully exposes the chinks in Sir Arthur's armor, the true nature of an accused criminal, and the elements that still stick with society today.   And don't forget to try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet and win a prize – you don't need to be a Patron of the Arts – now every listener is eligible to participate!

    Episode 148: Roger Johnson and Jean Upton

    “a most united couple" [DANC]     Another episode in our Florin Society series, this time with Roger Johnson, BSI ("The Pall Mall Gazette") and Jean Upton ("Elsie Cubitt"). The Florin Society of course refers to spouses who each have received an investiture from the Baker Street Irregulars.   Roger's and Jean's story was a fun one to explore, not the least of which was because they're deeply involved in the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. During our conversation, they shared some of the early history of the Society and its members and the secret behind how they're able to regularly access the legendary 221B Baker Street sitting room at the Sherlock Holmes Pub.   Plus, we learn that Roger got an intro to the world of Sherlock Holmes in a Pontine manner, Jean grew up in a house once inhabited by a legendary Baker Street Irregular, and had her photos used as official documentation of the Granada set. It's a love story and a story of mutual affection for Sherlock Holmes — something we can all appreciate.   And don't forget to try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet and win a prize – you don't need to be a Patron of the Arts – now every listener is eligible to participate!

    Episode 147: Sherlock Holmes and Silent Films

    "no ordinary merit" [REDH]  In 2014, the Sherlockian world was taken by complete and utter surprise when William Gillette's 1916 film Sherlock Holmes was discovered. It was the closest thing we'd ever have to seeing Gillette on stage, and Russell Merritt, BSI ("The Trepoff Murder") was part of the team that restored it.   We carried the news on our site, but now we're pleased to share the backstory of how it came to be, thanks to an interview with Russell Merritt, a University of California Berkeley film professor and an expert on silent films. In this episode, Russell also discusses the impact of Eille Norwood and the whereabouts of his 45 movies, the recently rediscovered 1929 German film Der Hund von Baskerville, and how he is likely the last person to first read A Study in Scarlet in an original Beeton's.   And don't forget to try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet and win a prize – you don't need to be a Patron of the Arts – now every listener is eligible to participate!

    Episode 146: Revision, My Dear Watson

    “a slight nick” [SILV]    If you're a regular Sherlockian, you've likely discovered that many other people in this hobby also enjoy Star Trek (which makes the Spock / Leonard Nimoy connections all the more...fascinating, as Spock would say). But how often do you hear from a guest that Irene Adler was the Boba Fett of the Sherlock Holmes stories?   That's exactly one of the unusual and unique takes we got from Nick Martorelli, BSI ("Seventeen Steps"), the Headmaster of the Priory Scholars of New York, audio producer, and all-around good humored Sherlockian. Nick reminds us that looking across works as a whole, rather than at individual parts, can help us make more sense of things. He shares the premise of a major talk he recently gave at A Scintillation of Scions, which looked at the four long stories in the Sherlock Holmes Canon.    Plus, if you listen closely, you might hear Nick take a stab at the Priory Scholars school song and tease an upcoming Sherlockian audio book.   And don't forget to try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet and win a prize – you don't need to be a Patron of the Arts – now every listener is eligible to participate!       Please do consider becoming a Patron of the Arts.
