Sherlock Meets The Doctor In This Fanmade Video

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 14, 2013 in Dr. Who, Fandom, Television

Wholock

Steven Moffat is in charge of both Doctor Who and Sherlock, two of the BBC’s biggest current exports (along with Downton Abbey). Unsurprisingly, there are many fans of both who have been dying for a crossover — Wholock, if you will. While Moffat thinks such a move would ruin Sherlock‘s setting (and I’m inclined to agree), that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be awesome to see. That’s why this fanmade crossover is so great. There are minor flaws here and there, but for the most part, the two series mesh pretty well thanks to some clever compositing. it’s pretty cool to see Sherlock enter the TARDIS after years of searching for information on the mysterious Doctor and go off on an adventure. It’s just a shame that in becoming a companion, Sherlock is leaving behind his own companion. Read more…

Sherlock Season 3 Premieres On PBS This January

Posted by Bob Muir on Oct 24, 2013 in Television

Sherlock

The wait is almost over for Sherlock fans. There hasn’t been a new episode (really, more like a new 90-minute movie) since May 2012 (or January 2012 if you watched the British broadcast like me). But now we know when season three is airing, at least in the US. The first of the three new episodes will air on January 19 at 10PM on PBS’s Masterpiece anthology program. Of course, the episodes will likely be out there before that, as the BBC does have first airing rights. While the BBC hasn’t announced their premiere dates, they will be sometime before PBS airs the episodes, possibly airing even by the end of 2013. Read more…

We’re seeing plenty of fanboy-related topics show up on LEGO CUUSOO all the time now, and it looks like the latest one to win the support of the community is a Sherlock model. Based off of the popular BBC show, the creator on CUUSOO has included a variety of options for LEGO to consider when making it a set, including different sets of minifigures, different sizes of the model itself, and an optional display stand. Basically, they put a lot of thought into the factors that LEGO themselves considers when making a set. Now that it’s got support, LEGO has to evaluate the model and obtain the rights to make the set. This is usually the biggest hangup, but with a versatile model like this it might just work out.

Sherlock Holmes: A Cinematic Christmas Gift from Guy Ritchie

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 15, 2009 in Cinema

Looking at all of these clips of the upcoming Sherlock Holmes I’ve got to say that I’m intrigued enough to see it on opening day (Christmas!). I recently caught RocknRolla by Guy Ritchie on cable and found myself re-watching more than once — while it wasn’t original his craftsmanship and storytelling was wonderful. He’s turned Sherlock Holmes into a bit of a superhero in these clips — and I’ve got to say that Jude Law makes a great Watson: Read more…

Sherlock Holmes: Now Improved with Vampires!

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jul 17, 2009 in Cinema, Pulp Fiction

This is the second trailer for the upcoming Sherlock Holmes flick — normally I’d slag the mere notion of having to improve Holmes through cheap plot mechanisms like vampires (why not go all the way and have zombies too?) but I’ve got to say that the idea of teaming up high quality actors like Robert  Downey  Jr. as Sherlock and  Jude  Law as Watson makes me think that this film might be a bit better than I’d expect.
