  • Sherlock: A Study in Pink — review

    Whenever I see this episode, I’m immediately taken back to a holiday in Devon in 2010. I was staying in a hotel on the day this episode aired, and I watched it purely because it was written by the man who was about to take over Doctor Who, Steven Moffat. Earlier that day, I’d been down into Paignton (wonderful place – promenade, palm trees, lots of shops with models of old cars and things) to inspect Sherlock Holmes by purchasing a reprint of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, making A Scandal in Belgravia and The Red Headed League the first two Holmes stories I experienced. The Red Headed League in particular made a fascinating read and was the adventure that convinced me of Holmes’ genius. That afternoon, given Torbay’s high sun levels, I sat in the garden writing Sherlock Holmes fanfiction (it was a crossover with The Sims 3, please don’t judge me) in a small, blue notebook with a new, red biro, both of which I’d also purchased that day. I felt somewhat like Agatha Christie, who also used to write murder mysteries in her Devonshire garden.
