Homes on A&E Biography

Filed under: Uncategorized — Matilda @ 12:47 pm

We have added a review by Margaret Whitmer of a Holmes-related TV series, in the CULTURAL ITEMS section. The A&E show “Biography” presents biographic information on well-known people from all walks of life. The review may add to the century-long debate over questions exacerbated by Sherlockian’s habit of “playing the game”.

It is the fourth of February in the year 2011. It has been a severe winter, and the snow lies deep on the hillsides, in the valleys, and upon the frozen lakes and streams. The county snow-ploughs have, however, kept the roads open, and life goes on pretty much as usual, but with fewer down-state tourists.

Here, among the lumber-camps of Michigan, we like to pause on this day and drink a toast to one of our own, a man who traveled down to Chicago looking for better opportunities, and from there went on to achieve fame as someone who almost fooled Sherlock Holmes, but not quite. Sadly, he didn’t fool Moriarty either.
