What’s to like about Martin Freeman? Oh, it’s too early in the day to do this, isn’t it? It’s tricky, it’s tricky. I haven’t got my list for the day ready yet. But um, but he’s very smart, he’s really good company, he’s one of the funniest men I’ve ever met, and he’s a craftsman. He works incredibly hard and creates authentic characters and moments in drama and he’s an inspiration to work opposite and I’ve got nothing but good things to say about Martin.

We’re hard at work planning a Halloween event with the Sherlock Breakfast Club and the Curious Collectors of Baker Street for a costume party extravaganza. Use your imagination to dress yourselves as any character from any incarnation of Sherlock Holmes, from Victorian era to modern day.
There will be games, contests, food, fun, and prizes. More information on the event along with details regarding price and ticketing will be forthcoming.

We don’t take anything too seriously, so you don’t need to be a Holmes scholar or budding cinematographer. Just find a copy of the episode or movie we’re watching, and come make some goofy internet friends.
And as always, you can keep an eye on the calendar and/or my #the giant chat of sumatra tag for updates on chat events.
