Mr. Holmes, starring Sir Ian McKellen and based on the book
A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullen, has been
a subject of tremendous excitement in the Sherlockian world ever
since the news of its early planning! In Episode 66, join Babes
Sarah, Amy, Melinda, Taylor, and Lyndsay as they discuss their
impressions of this important new contribution to the legacy of the
Great Detective, and a gosh darned good flick at that.
This episode is not
spoiler-free, so be warned--we cover a lot of ground
here. How were the film's themes interwoven and mirrored? What
other Sussex-era content should you be getting your greedy hands
on? What were the film's most resonant moments for Sherlockians and
just how hot did Sir Ian look in those pinstriped trousers?
If Sherlock Holmes, as it's said, never lived and so can
never die, what does that mean for late-life adaptations? How meta
is this movie and how much of that is thanks to Doyle himself?
Deep thoughts, much appreciation for Sir Ian and his
colleagues, fan-casting Sir Patrick Stewart as Watson--all this
awaits in Episode 66.
