I’ve had time to get things done in my personal life, but I’m still lacking when it comes to getting things done online. So I ask your forgiveness for my delays and I hope to be more active in the future! For now, enjoy what I have posted below! -Rose (Blogger)
A tvtimes flashback from 2012 as fans got ready for the second season of Sherlock! (These clippings are from my personal collection and I will be sharing more soon, including interviews!) I’ll also be spotlighting mydogwatson stories again soon!
A throwback from Entertainment Weekly speaks of Sherlock, Downton Abby, and the Gramham Norton Show!
SHERLOCK CELEBRATION 2020
We’ve rented a ballroom and have a full weekend planned! Event Schedule subject to changes and updates! November 20th through the 22nd, 2020 at Hilton Garden Inn Valley Forge/Oaks in Phoenixville, PA! Learn more at Sherlock Celebration 2020!
[While we Sherlock fans are stuck at home, staying safe, I thought I’d share this Entertainment Weekly interview with Andrew Scott! The original print was torn, so I thought I’d rewrite it for easier reading].
As “Hot Priest” on Amazon’s Emmy-Winning Fleabag, Andrew Scott’s charm and devilish wit made us all question our faith. Last December in the WWI drama 1917 he starred opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, then, of course, he plays the part of Tom Ripley on showtimes upcoming Ripley as well as appearing in the season two of HBO’s his dark materials.
On His Ardent Fan Base. Scott doesn’t want to be defined as just one thing. But for now, the 43-year-old Duplin native is happy to bear the moniker of Hot Priest. Since playing the dreamy cleric in Fleabag’s second season – and showcasing some serious onscreen chemistry with costar Phoebe Waller-Bridge he has developed a much different fan base than in his days as Sherlock’s ruthless villain Moriarty; typical reactions now include “Strangle me!” and “Hear my sins!” “Then, when they meet you in real life,” Scott notes, “they’re like, ‘Hello, I really enjoy your work.'”
Unorthodox Choices. When one character “becomes too hot,” as the actor puts it, it’s time to look for the next big thing. “I like playing with all those different sides of yourself without losing yourself,” he says. True to form, Scott has three upcoming projects that he calls “slightly left of center. That’s always what I’m looking for.” In 1917, “there’s nowhere to hide” because the WWI film from director Mendes was shot to look like one continuous take. Scott likes to think of it as “a very expensive film [made] on your iPhone. “You can’t cut away.” The actor is also eager to put his stamp on Ripley ( “an iconic literary character”) on Showtime’s take on the Patricia Highsmith novels.
Finding His Religion. On His Dark Materials, Scott is on the other side of the cloth as John Parry, a traveler in an alternate reality controlled by an authoritarian religious institution.
“Those books are really important for kids,” Scott says of the Philip Pullman trilogy that inspired the series. “It teaches them about goodness and kindness in the world.” Growing up as a gay man in a Catholic Church, Scott faced his own struggles with faith, making him appreciate “the ethics” of His Dark Materials. “You can be a good person in the world [without] organized religion.”
That said, between all his new career adventures, Scott says, “people will forget about the Hot Priest.” Blasphemy.

It’s been busy as always, promoting The Game Is Never Over and now working on Retro Con 2020, but I had to share something fun! This Retro interview with Martin Freeman from 2016, talks about Martin’s interest in politics, his thoughts on social media, and Much Much More!!!
[PS: If you can’t read the pages, click them and that should make them larger, and easier to read.]
Most know I’ve been extremely slow of late, setting things up for the Keystone Comic Con fan table next month, and for my own convention Retro Con in October. So until I can really post a newer blog later this week.. I’m sharing some of my favorite interviews and spotlights! Today I share a personal favorite, an interview I had with mydogwatson!
So I’ve done Blogs on collecting, art and cosplay! But I’ve done nothing on my favorite part of the Sherlock verse yet, and that’s the fan-fiction! I love reading fan stories! My favorite stories, all come from a stack of Postcards! These Postcards are stories of John and Sherlock, posted by my friend mydogwatson! She’s a brilliant! Why are they called Postcards? I’ll let mydogwatson tell you and then I’ll share some of her favorites!

Sherlock Fans: How long have you been writing Sherlock stories, and when were you first introduced to the series?
mydogwatson: I wrote a few Sherlock Holmes stories years ago, just for myself. With this show, I started writing between season one and season two. I watched the first episode the night it aired in the USA and was in love immediately.
From my growing collection of magazine clippings, I share a recent interview with Benedict Cumberbatch, published in The Rake! In it Benedict shares his thoughts on his career, talks of Doctor Strange, and of his partnership with Jaeger-LeCoultre!
Much like the Jaeger-LeCoultre he wears on his wrist, Cumberbatch’s performances endure, and when we look around for greater cause for hope in our hazy present, perhaps, if you are reading this, you need look no further. [Quote by Tom Chamberlin]
I love my clippings! This is just one of many, as a young Martin Freeman, shares his thoughts on The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy! The editor speaks of fans falling in love with Martin, as Tim in The Office. Just wait a few years Martin, you have yet to meet Sherlock Holmes!
I’m a bit delayed in spotlighting this magazine, a magazine that has a brilliant interview with Martin Freeman! Released right before Ghost Stories! But, better late then never and you can still buy it on eBay!
In this magazine, Martin speaks on his earlier career and life. He speaks on not being an A-List actor, which he’s okay with. He mentions politics, religion and the fandom. It’s a must read interview! More photos below! Also since I do fall behind on blogs, I have a friend that’s going to be helping me out, Elana Mayer! She also makes a brilliant Mary!
Just a small part of that interview, by Robin Swithinbank
Martin Freeman has been in some huge movies. But despite the successes and his undeniable talent, he’s still not one of the first names in Hollywood. Thing is, he’s okay with that. Really, actually, genuinely okay. For the full interview: The Jackal
Because we love charities and I think this would be a fun way to promote our group, I’ve designed Three shirts! The deadline for buying these t-shirts is July first, they’ll be made shortly after and shipped July 10th! Each t-shirt goes towards a special charity, so let’s also raise some money!!
The first t-shirt design will have this on the front of it, and it Honor’s Redbeard! The money will go towards Cat Angel Network, a shelter for animals with special needs.
The second t-shirt design, SHERLOCK’S KIDS will go towards Mending Kids a nonprofit organization, that helps family and kids in need of medical care!
Love this interview! Martin not only talks about Ghost Stories, but he sets the record straight once again, that he loves Sherlock. He’s loves playing John Watson, and he loves working with Benedict Cumberbatch. Those gossip sites exaggerate everything online to get attention 🙂 But we fans remain strong, and the talents do love us! Even if it’s five years from now, we’ll be ready for that next season 🙂
