Hmmm.... can't say I'm expecting much.

I've been watching them and thought they were very good. :D

Sherlock Holmes and other Conan Doyle stories are in the Public Domain here in the UK. I don't think she's got a case at all. And this is a typical Daily Mail type story designed to make people angry. ;)

Pretty much think the character has always been public Domain based on Conan Doyles own attitude -
When asked by another author could she use the character he said.
"You may marry him or murder him or do as you like with him."

I think any legal challenge will fall with that point.
The stories all passed into public domain in 200 in the UK and only a few short stories remain under copyright in the US. Might be a teeny case if they use one of those and then sell it in the US but that's it really.

There's an American writer named, Laurie R. King, who has written a whole series of books featuring a retired Sherlock Holmes and his young, female apprentice. If that woman really owns the rights to the character names, why hasn't she sued earlier? :roll:

Probably hoping the TV thing will pay her off to shut it. Bloody stupid anyway . Its about the 240th time Sherlock has appeared in some form on tv or film and I can't imagine they all sought permission in the last few years. Sounds like a nutter chancing her arm.
There's a stupid case in Ireland where one comedian is suing RTE television for using the name Damo on a show. Every second chav in Ireland is called Damo . people will just try cash in on undefendable copyrights

The actor is OK, but I thought he played the character like a camper (if that's possible) Graham Norton.
