Be prepared for old fashioned English humor, some Bram Stoker chatter, Southern twang, and lots of Sherlock Holmes love (as always). Holmesian authors Gerry O'Hara and Tracey Revels chat with Babes Maria & Taylor about Sherlock Holmes and the supernatural. From Dracula to Titania with a dash of Lord of the Rings and bunnies (what?).
Gerry O’Hara is an English film and television director. O’Hara was an assistant director on Laurence Olivier’s film, Richard III; the Carol Reed film, Our Man in Havana and the Academy Award-winning Tom Jones. O’Hara’s directorial debut was the 1963 cautionary tale That Kind of Girl, about the dangers of contracting venereal disease. During the 1960s, he directed episodes of The Avengers and a film based on a Van Der Valk novel by Nicolas Freeling, Amsterdam Affair. O’Hara directed the highly controversial film The Brute. O’Hara directed and wrote the screenplay for the 1979 film, The Bitch, an adaptation of the Jackie Collins novel. Later television credits include directing and writing episodes of The Professionals, script editor for the ITV series C.A.T.S. Eyes and directing an episode of Press Gang. Most recently he has become a published author, writing Sherlock Holmes & The Affair of Transylvania.
Tracy Revels is a professor of history at Wofford College in South Carolina, and author of a few Sherlock Holmes pastiches! The most notable is Shadowfall.
And we’re happy to say a sequel was written, entitled Shadowblood.

Joe Lidster is the talent behind BBC Sherlock's blogs (John Watson's Blog, The Science of Deduction, Molly Hooper's Blog, & The Connie Prince website). With a fabulous writing repetoire including Doctor Who & Torchwood, it's no wonder he is a BBC fav. Babes Curly & Marie (plus Curly's snarky flatmate/BSB Science guru Stephen) got to sit down with Joe after hearing his great talk at BAFTAGames' Transmedia Meetup.
It’s a brilliant episode and loads of fun. We chat with him about our love for Molly Hooper, how he got into Sherlock Holmes, jellyfish, viagra, getting into character, and generally a lot of gushing about Sherlock. We talk a bit about the #BELIEVEINSHERLOCK campaign as well.
You can follow Joe on twitter at @joelidster , he loves getting new followers haha, though apologizes if he only talks about lunch and going to the pub.
The event was hosted by @BAFTAGames, and the folks there are amazing. Seriously, if you’re in London, you need to follow them on twitter. They have tons of free events and talks.

It's John Watson Appreciation Hour (and a half!). This episode is dedicated to John Watson, the steadfast soldier and friend. To the man who is always there, even to the bitter end. He is the man who is a friend to Sherlock Holmes, the man who calls him out on being an annoying dick, and the man who believes in him. John Watson is more than the everyday man, he is each and every one of us, the audience surrogate taking us along on the wild ride of his misadventures in and out of London. He is the best friend of the cleverest man in the world, the healer, the soldier, and the lover. He is John Watson and we fucking love him.
What are your favorite Dr. Watson moments from the canon? Who is your favorite John Watson on screen? If you could go on a date with Dr. Watson where would you go (because let’s be honest, Dr. John “Three Continents” Watson would definitely take you on a date)? Any questions about the good doctor?
Nearly all the Baker Street Babes take you through an episode of John Watson love. THANK YOU to everyone who helped donate and our new sponsor, The Baker Street Journal!
