One of my favorite sketch comedy shows is out of Brigham Young University's byuTV, a show called Studio C. They did a parody of the BBC's Sherlock in a sketch a few years ago. I wonder if they know how uncomplimentary A Study in Scarlet was to Mormons?
According to Brad Keefauver (Sherlock Peoria), February 6 is the date on which "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter" begins. The adventure begins with an enigmatic telegram, which reads:
Please await me. Terrible misfortune. Right wing three-quarter missing; indispensable to morrow.—OVERTON.
The "three-quarter" referred to in the title is a player on a rugby team. Godfrey Staunton is missing, and Sherlock Holmes, despite his lack of expertise in the real of "amateur sport" is on the case to find him. You can read the story (and listen to it) HERE.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote a brief review of the 2018 film Sherlock Gnomes, and animated take on the legendary detective (as well as a sequel to an earlier animated feature, an animated version of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, called Gnomeo & Juliet). Shortly after I wrote that review, I offered to expand it a bit and submit it to I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere. They posted my expanded review today. I've copied it below.
