The Baker Street Babes
Episode 4: The Women of Sherlock Holmes

Babes: Curly, Ardy, and Jenn look at the Women in Sherlock Holmes, both canon and BBC, beyond Irene Adler (though we chat about her too!) Join us as we look at the role of women in Victorian times and the stories themselves, compare them with other Victorian heroines, look at the strong ones and weak ones alike, and try and grapple with the BBC!Verse women. Most importantly though! We answer questions from all of you!! We have some news to tell as well, a favour to ask, and a song about a snarky and sexy Blackberry loving lady at the end. It's The Baker Street Babes and it is Episode 4!

Episode 1: Meet The Babes!

Disclaimer: This episode will be remastered to fix sound issues, also, we now realize we are not the first Sherlock Holmes podcast. Apologies to I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, our Google-fu failed us.

Our very first podcast! Meet the Baker Street Babes! In our first episode we talk about how we got into Sherlock Holmes, our favourite stories and characters, as well as taking a look at BBC's Sherlock's Series Two titles... we know the canon, now what are they going to do with it? Plus! News from the cast of Sherlock as well as the Undershaw Preservation Trust. We have songs, we have German, we have French, we have laughs and theories! We hope you enjoy!


The Baker Street Babes theme song was composed and recorded by Caitlin Obom
