I recently went on a Sherlock Holmes walk in London. Fascinating information about the various films and series, including the latest. For example, if you watch episode 1 of the first series, you'll see Watson and companion sitting on a park bench drinking coffee from a takeaway cup as he first hears about someone looking for a roommate. On the side of the cup is the word Criterion. This is the name of the restaurant in Piccadilly Circus where, in the books, Watson first hears mention of Holmes. There are apparently quite a few similar nods to the novels like that. :D

A good bit of it is filmed in Cardiff as well. :)

Oooh! that sounds intriguing! I never really get to go to these kinds of things - maybe if the timing is right I could consider it... if I had someone to go with. Hmm... :think:

I like the series and the original books. :) I think the third series wasn't so good as the other two. Needs another watch, mind! :D

Will be difficult, I've never bought a lottery ticket in my life :P I've never even won ANYTHING with those little cards you have to scratch stuff away on to see if "three symbols match" or "if you have a crown, you've won!"... always get one of those for my birthday, I do like the scratching part though :)
