Blog2005 ≫ The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle

BBC 2 tonight, "The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle", a one off (I think) drama about the birth and death of Sherlock Holmes. Looks good to me, though Radio Times1 says it's a "slow-moving, vaguely supernatural essay". Coincidentally (or is it a PR stunt?) there are plans afoot to exhume bodies over the suspicion that Conan Doyle had someone MURDERED to cover up the fact that he'd stolen "Hound of the Baskervilles"! I read it in this morning's paper, can't find much online yet just this in the Glasgow Herald2 (not Folkestone Herald).

Today's commute in was rubbish, two annoying blokes sat behind us talking loud crap all the way in. SHUT UP! Or go sit in another carriage! When Folkestone Gerald goes paper I will write an editorial on this, oh yes, extreme measures...

Happy Birthday Clare! And me! It's both our birthdays today! No plans, what with getting up early and going to bed early, we'll be saving the celebrations for the weekend.

Didn't bring a lunch today, haven't enjoyed my home made dinners so much this week, so I will trudge up to Chap A Nash in the rain in a bit.
