Ever wonder why the Hit Counter on John Watson’s blog (that happened to be popular) at www.johnwatsonblog.co.uk always stuck in 1895? (Is it only to mislead Sherlock from typing the code on A Scandal in Belgravia?)
Answer. Once upon a time a Sherlock Holmes enthusiast from Chicago (actually born in Toronto) wrote a poem:
Here dwell together still two men of note
Who never lived and so can never die:
How very near they seem, yet how remote
That age before the world went all awry.
But still the game’s afoot for those with ears
Attuned to catch the distant view-halloo:
England is England yet, for all our fears–
Only those things the heart believes are true.
A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
As night descends upon this fabled street:
A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
And it is always eighteen ninety-five.
I’d like to give my personal salute to BBC team who really give amazing details on their work. They have many website to support their work for fan at http://www.sherlockology.com/ (totally deserve to win 2012 Fansite Shorty Award)
and bring back the character to live via pseudo-website
Molly Hooper’s http://www.mollyhooper.co.uk/
and even the minor character who they mention on the series
Connie Prince www.connieprince.co.uk
Btw I’m really busy now T__T …. (We always do this kind of thing when we are busy) . It just for interlude 😉
