Andrew Scott at Stage Door!

present-laughter

Although my real reason for going to London was to set up at the London Film and Comic-Con event, to share our love for Sherlock! Seeing Andrew Scott just added to an amazing week! Above photo from Present Laughter.

 

They gave a choice of a photo or an autograph… I went with an autograph!

 

Stepping away, I managed to pick up some amazing video footage of Andrew too! To those fans in this video… I wish I had a way of contacting you!

Hi(gh)jinks on the London Eye

One of the touristy places we visited during our week was the Coca-Cola London Eye.

It was a beautiful, sunny spring-like day in London when a few of us decided to go take a whirl.  There were six of us in one of the cars with about six other people who thought we were some of those crazy Americans that they had always heard about but never properly seen.  I noticed that, literally, when Rosemary, Meg and myself went to one side of the car, the other (non-Sherlockian) people kind of migrated away from us.  As far away as they could get.  (I feel accomplished.)

A little known fact of mine is that I am afraid of heights.  The Eye moves so slowly that you really don’t realize how high up you are.  The cars are large and heavy so they don’t rock.  We were having a grand time taking snaps and videos. It was so amazing!

At the zenith, you can see almost all of London.  From Mycroft’s MI6 building to Battersea Power Station to St. Paul’s Cathedral, the views are a sight to behold.

It was one of the best Valentine’s Days I have had in years:

Sherlock and John being chummy.

Mary giving a ring to Moriarty.

Sherlock blowing off a marriage proposal.

All I can say is, next time James will have a bigger bauble and maybe a locked-room mystery or two to entice Sherlock away from John.  Or maybe kidnap Johnny boy to get Sherly’s attention.  Hmm… decisions, decisions…

This is 30 minutes of my life I will never forget.  Thanks to my partners in crime: Rosemary, Meg, Beverly, Beth, and Anne.  You made this day more than I thought it could be.  Thank you from the bottom of my little heart.

Next week: Lunch at the Sherlock Holmes Pub.

Back from London, and still working on getting settled in, along with posting something fun! Hopefully, within a day or two, I’ll have things more organized… Until then enjoy this fun video I put together. Not very professional I know, but it’s still enjoyable! Above Photo: This Blogger posed with my Sherlock Fan USA sisters!

Martin was so kind and sweet, and greeted each fan!

 

And for those that haven’t seen it yet, Benedict has a new charity and contest listed with Omaze! Keep watching and do enter, you could just win a trip to meet our favorite talent!
