So, I've decided to read the complete set of Sherlock Holmes
stories, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I would be lying, of course, if I wasn't inspired to do so by this Harlan Ellison interview
at around 2 min, 40 seconds. And just as I was thinking that it was about time they made an updated film for Sherlock Holmes... there it is, coming out this year! Unfortunately, I saw the trailer.
It seems to be... "slightly" off the mark :(
