Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes has caused a lot of controversy with Sherlockians and Holmesians alike, so Babes: Curly, Kafers, Ardy, and Taylor take it on. Why they love it, what they don't love about it... and why is the Bromance JUST SO AMAZING?!
We welcome new BSB Taylor into the crew, rescue Ardy from Skype Purgatory, weigh in on Rachel McAdams' Irene Adler, and let you know about some fabulous things including a Rupert Graves shot glass and a bunch of Scots that are making Sherlock Holmes headway of their own. It's Episode 5 and it's less than an hour long!! Also listen to the hauntingly beautiful Ghosts of Baker Street by Sam Hoare at the end. It's quite lovely.
Sam Hoare: I'm 16, from Oxford, UK. I sing, and have done basically since I discovered the function of vocal chords, and I've written song since I could hold a pencil. I play the guitar (self taught) and I write my own songs, an equal mix between fandom and original. I write stuff for Doctor Who, Sherlock and Harry Potter. They're basically my life. I love Sherlock, and the original Sherlock Holmes books, and have found that the fandom has very quickly become my favourite of all time, because the people are so creative and lovely, and so supportive of whatever random creation I throw at them to give opinions on. And, I hope to definitely move out to London and attempt to make a career out of writing and performing my own songs, be them about silly things that I become obsessed with or real, serious musician things. Listen to more of Sam's songs at Soundcloud and @SamSailsShips

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!

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
