I have watched all of Elementary! Over a period of several days! It was good. It was very good. (I have subtitled it "Clever People Who Are Also Nice")

Cut for spoilers )

Finally saw the trailer for Elementary. It looks rather good, I must say. (I am open to any and all Sherlock Holmes adaptations, they’ll never take the place of the books.) I’ve liked Lucy Liu ever since she did the ‘I Dated A Robot’ episode of Futurama, and I like the idea of a tatooed Sherlock for some reason. And it all looks very pretty, and…yeah, I’m totally looking forward to it.

Except, again, it probably won’t air in the UK for ages. >:(

I love Molly Hooper- she is fabulous. I want a spin-off with her and Donovan.

Not as good as the first film (which is easily in my top ten favourite movies ever) but not bad. Pretty darn good in fact.

Look you guys, here's Stephen Fry as Mycroft, yay

And now here's Arthur Darvill speaking about Amnesty International, which deserves to be mentioned more than the Sherlock Holmes thing and not just because it's Arthur

Yayz! Sherlock Holmes 2 trailer. Featuring cross-dressing Holmes and SO. MUCH. homoerotic subtext. No Stephen Fry as of yet, but I'm looking forward to him...

It's still the beginning of January! It's not too late!

Anyway, here's my major fanworks during the year of 2010. Which may actually be a different version of the meme going round, but I figured I'd do it anyway.


January to Febuary -nuffin

March -The Dying Doctor, a Sherlock Holmes AU to 'The Dying Detective'. Hey, have you seen the fanfiction.net section for Sherlock Holmes? There is some magnificent stuff there. I hope this lives up to their standards... (Not often you see the words 'magnificent' and 'fanfiction.net' together, is it?)

April -The Girl, a quick Doctor Who thing where Eleven meets Rose and does not get off with her.

May -No Matter, a Doctor Who/Sherlock Holmes crossover. It trailed off somewhat towards the end but I bloody loved writing it. (Link leads to the last chapter, posted in July.)
Cut for length! )

And...hey, that's it!

Good day, everybody.

You know what? I've decided I don't like Sherlock. It was alright, and I enjoyed it while it was on, pretty much, but...I just can't really bring myself to like it. The acting's good and the scripts are good, it's got all the gloss and style of a Really Good Show, but the way they've done the characters, it just leaves me cold. Holmes is a hero, even though I suppose Moffat and Gatiss don't think so, and he'd never dismiss people in danger so casually! And Watson isn't an Everyman, not even close, he's a war hero and a regular hero and he's so kind and loyal and awesome that he's probably in the running for my favourite literary character of all time. Anyway!

I guess I just don't see the friendship that's meant to be between them, either. I think we were told that they were best friends a lot, but we never saw it.

I did like what they did with Lestrade, though. And the plots were pretty clever. I feel like I'm bringing down the party, but now I'm just sort of hoping Sherlock fades away into being just another of so many adaptations...

It was good. Interesting. I don't think it's ever going to be my favourite adaptation though...

Four years on and I can finally stop seeing Benedict Cumberbatch as the paedophile rapist from Atonement.

I am looking INSANELY forward to the BBC's Sherlock.

I really, really hope they get it right...they may have stripped away the Victorian stuff (which I think will work! That's going to be pretty much the point of this new show after all), but I always thought the main thing in the books was the friendship between Holmes and Watson. Get that right and it'll be good!
