Babes Curly, Ardy, Taylor, and Marie chat with Honorary Babe Lyndsay Faye about the Guy Ritchie sequel. We fawn over Jared Harris, applaud antithesis, bitch over the ladies, and laugh a ridiculous amount, as well as get a little sad. But most importantly we discuss Guy Ritchie's alarming hatred of trees. Star Wars and Batman make appearances, as Lyndsay's monkey voice.
Stay tuned for a message about SherlockNYC's AMAZING events in The Big Apple. http://www.sherlocknyc.com/

Just in time for Game of Shadows, our interview with Les Klinger is a knock out. Sherlockian scholarship and Brad Pitt jumping his neighbor's fence, this episode is as much of us interviewing him as it is just a full on discussion of why we love Sherlock Holmes, in all his forms. Learn all about his dinner date with Robert Downey Jr, A Study in Sherlock, and quite a bit of banter!
Babes: Curly, Ardy, and Jenn.
Stayed tuned also from a message from Maria (from Episode 2!) about The German Sherlock Holmes Society, Undershaw, and Sherlocon! A Sherlock Holmes convention happening at the end of August, 2012! Find out more at http://www.dshc.de/
Les Klinger is a legend in the Sherlockian world. He is the editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, a three book edition of all of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes fiction with extensive annotations, “hailed as the definitive exegesis of Holmes and his times;” the book won an Edgar Award.
He is the consultant of the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law. He also edited the scholarly ten-volume Sherlock Holmes Reference Library, a heavily annotated edition of the entire Sherlock Holmes canon, and The New Annotated Dracula, an annotated version of Bram Stoker’s novel.
He published two collections of classic fiction in 2011, In the Shadow of Dracula and In the Shadow of Sherlock Holmes, both from IDW. In 2011, he co-edited with Laurie R. King The Grand Game, a two-volume collection of classical Sherlockian scholarship, published by The Baker Street Irregulars, and A Study in Sherlock, a collection of stories by all-star writers inspired by the Sherlock Holmes tales (Random House).
Klinger is a member of the Sherlock Holmes literary club called The Baker Street Irregulars, as well as numerous other Sherlockian societies. He served three terms as chapter president of the Southern California chapter of the Mystery Writers of America. He is a member of Sisters in Crime, the Horror Writers Association (and currently serves on the Board of HWA), the Dracula Society, and the Transylvanian Society of Dracula.
He’s also just a really nice guy.

Never have we had a more important episode than this. Undershaw was the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle from 1897 to 1907, and the residence where he wrote The Hound of The Baskervilles and The Return of Sherlock Holmes, as well as his piece on The great Boer War which earned him a knighthood. Many literary giants visited him within these personally designed walls, including J.M. Barrie, Bram Stoker, and Virginia Wolfe... not to mention his own illustrator Sidney Paget. This episode speaks with The Undershaw Preservation Trust's Lynn Gale and author of "An Entirely New Country," Alistair Duncan about the plight of Undershaw, why it needs to be saved, and how we're trying to do that.
