I had a pleasant surprise for it being a Monday, and then I nerded out a little.
An email arrived from The Official Sherlock Convention. (For those who may not know, the first ever convention for BBC’s Sherlock was held in London this past April.) At first, I was like “Come on, stop bragging about how amazing the convention was.” However, there was a line that changed my tune:
It’s true, in the VERY NEAR future we will be announcing not one, but two dates for 2016 and one of those dates will be in America!
Prepare to be SHERLOCKED!
Now for those who may need a refresher on Sherlock, allow me to remind you. It is a BBC production staring
my man Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson. So far, there have been 3 seasons, chalk full of crime and mystery. It’s a unique series with each season having 3 movie-length episodes, and while it tackles the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, it definitely has a modern twist, plus some fun shots of one of my favorite cities in the world: London.
If the 2016 conventions are anything like the first, there will be opportunities to see many of the show’s actors in person, participating in Q&As and–most importantly–being available for autographs and photos (for a price, of course…but then again, can you really put a price on a photo with Mr. Cumberbatch? I think not!).
In light of this news, I’m raising my wine glass to toast my fellow Cumberbitches as we sit and wait for more information on such an amazingly nerdy experience. 2016 is still a ways out, but time does fly. Stay tuned!
