Episode 59: An Interview with Sherlockology
Scott Monty & Burt Wolder
"Compliments of the season."
We can unabashedly say that we’re huge fans of Sherlockology. So it was with great pleasure that we sat down with Jules Coomber and David Mather, two of the four (in addition to Emma and Leif) who run the burgeoning online presence of a site that pays homage to the BBC’s Sherlock and the cast and crew that are responsible for it. It’s been so well done that many think that it’s either an official BBC site or that it’s only about the show.
Go with us behind the scenes to understand who these energetic and fascinating people are, what brought them to Sherlock Holmes, what keeps them committed, the relationships they’ve forged with the creators and staffers of the show, and some behind-the-scenes commentary about how this is all done. And please don’t forget to visit Sherlockabilia, the online shop run by these enterprising people. All of the proceeds go back into running the site, which is purely a labor of love.
Full show notes - including how to get a bonus piece of audio content - are available over on the main I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere site. We hope you’ll consider subscribing!
Of course, Sherlock Holmes wore slippers as mentioned in “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,” and while he didn’t wear it, he kept his tobacco in the toe of a Persian Slipper.
Additionally, he observed the scorching of the bottom of Watson’s slippers in “The Stock-Broker’s Clerk,” and slippers served as clues in “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” “The Musgrave Ritual,” and The Valley of Fear.
But the crossed legs show off the lovely shoes! x
Ahhh you noticed! I thought a pair of slippers would be casual enough for this art but I wasn’t sure if Victorian men wore them and how so I did a quick googling and
not original Victorian but I could totally imagine Holmes’ pale feet in these.

Interesting. The Holmes and Watson in the new Russian series look closer in age to these two.

- "You think that’s got a kick? Ever done radis pedis diaboli?"
- "Even Holmes would call that a body of evidence!"
- "No problem! What I really wrote is that I had an experience of three incontinent women."
