MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: MC

Nickname: Mc 

First introduced to BBC Sherlock: A friend knew I was enjoying the reboot of Doctor Who and recommended Sherlock. I binge-watched the first 2 series on Netflix in 2012 and there’s hardly a day that goes by that I haven’t watched all or part of an episode since. 
Favorite BBC Sherlock Character: Sherlock 
Favorite BBC Episode: The Sign of Three. It was an inspiration for me when I officiated a friend’s wedding. It also inspired kmy ideas for fanfiction. 
Sherlock Beyond BBC: [Anything you enjoy Sherlock related, that’s not BBC?] 
On my first trip to London, I had the pleasure of going to the Sherlock Holmes Museum. In my excitement I had to have a conversation with myself to remind myself that Sherlock Holmes was a fictitious character. 
Personal Interests: My friends accuse me of stalking Benedict Cumberbatch. In truth I’ve been extraordinarily fortunate in encountering him a few times. 
I enjoy traveling and I’m putting together a video travelogue of my Sherlock related travels. 

I enjoy doing what I call casual closet cosplay. I’m not sure if I could even call it cosplay compared the Fantastic work I’ve seen other people do. I get a kick out of being accepted. I’m particularly proud of my first attempt because I was immediately recognized as River Song. 

Making up fanfiction but it’s still mostly in my head.
Things I enjoy watching aside from Sherlock include: Grantchester kept me occupied while Sherlock was off on his adventures 

British programming. We’re lucky in the Washington DC area that we have several  PBS stations especially WETA UK, the only PBS station that does all UK programming. 
I tried to catch up on all things Marvel after watching Doctor Strange five times in the theaters.

Favorite character: Sherlock

First discovered Sherlock: Totally by accident. Flipping channels I landed on PBS during one of Steven and Mark’s Special Features (don’t remember which one) and paused long enough to get a little interested – hey! this was really different. Saw Benedict and thought he was so strange but I was not yet convinced.  Hurriedly I ordered Season 1 from Amazon and devoured it. But I had to hurry because S3 was coming out in two weeks!  So I ordered S2 and by the time S3 showed it was too late. I was obsessed.

Favorite episode: Scandal in Belgravia. I loved the tying together of Moriarty and Irene. Another whole episode could be written right there. And then the game playing between Irene and Sherlock was brilliant!  (This can’t be happening, can it?  This is not happening; this is happening, I think.  This couldn’t happen – or did it?) 

 Beyond BBC: Basil Rathbone was the ONLY Sherlock Holmes I would ever accept. I was such a snob that I had never even heard of Jeremy Brett until after Sherlock! My stepfather introduced me to SH when I was about 7 and I was allowed to stay up late on Sat. night and watch the Basil Rathbone classics.  (and if I remember rightly we also watched Peter Seller movies). Then I started reading ACD in high school and have read them all at least 3 times.

Personal interests:  Reading – ACD, Laurie R. King, Diana Gabaldon. Fashion, beauty – I own a salon and boutique. I love doing nails and being a personal shopper for my clients. All of whom have been gracious to accept my obsession with Benedict and Sherlock.  In fact, I’ve even converted a few – my goal in life right now. 

Things I enjoy watching aside from Sherlock include: I enjoy watching Outlander (would love to find an Outlander Con), Poldark, NCIS, Bull, Mr. Selfridge, anything Benedict is in and Instinct.

Where To Find Me: I’m on twitter and fb. On twitter I follow Sue, Amanda, Tom, Louise, & Mark. et al
