ep61Welcome to the Baker Street Babes Podcast, Episode #61!

Join Babes Liz and Lyndsay as they interview Adam Christopher, the author of a new series of Elementary show tie-in novels.  A longtime lover of New York and a passionate fan of Elementary, Adam is also an acclaimed comic writer, winner of the Sir Julius Vogel Award as an editorElementary 1_sales (New Zealand’s highest science fiction honor), and SciFiNow’s Book of the Year Winner for Empire State.

Adam (as you will hear) is also a longtime lover of the canonical Holmes, Doctor Who, and many other fannish pursuits that make him the perfect choice to provide us with fabulous spin-off Elementary adventures.  We’ll chat about all these things, ask whether Holmes qualifies as a superhero, and discuss the Joan-Sherlock relationship and its importance to his new series.

To read an excerpt of The Ghost Line, the first in Adam’s collection and recently released in the US both physically and electronically via these websites, visit CriminalElement before (or after!) listening.

We’re giving away two copies of The Ghost line, details [HERE].

Elementary Review 03 x 08 – End of Watch

Talk about relevant programming. In the midst of a national crisis around police relations in this country, the mid-season finale of Elementary starts with the news that a police officer has been murdered on patrol. To make things worse, he was unable to defend himself because his firearm had been replaced with a BB gun…. Read More »

Elementary Review: 03 x 07 – The Adventure of the Nutmeg Concoction

Let’s just admit this: Mrs. Hudson is the most underutilized character in the Elementary universe. In The Adventure of the Nutmeg Concoction, Mrs. Hudson makes a brief appearance as temporary assistant and police scanner in the middle of an investigation into a series of murders that all have the scent of nutmeg in common. In… Read More »

Elementary Review 03 x 06 – Terra Pericolosa

Translated from Italian, Terra Pericolosa means “dangerous land” – but in this case, it’s more of a dangerous map. On facts alone, this episode should have been brilliant. It had all the makings of a truly awesome story. Vintage maps. A mysterious break in. Lucrative business dealings on native lands. Add in the guest star, Mamie… Read More »

Elementary Review: 03 x 05 Rip Off

When I learnt that “Rip Off” was an episode without Joan, I was disappointed. It is understandable that the writers needed to build the plot so that Lucy Liu could spend some time behind the camera, but removing one of the show’s protagonists for a whole episode had me questioning how well it would hang… Read More »

Elementary Review: 03 x 04 Bella

In the original stories, Sherlock Holmes often dealt with some odd cases: “The Speckled Band” comes to mind, as well as the most bizarre of all, “The Creeping Man” (the first rule of “The Creeping Man” is do not talk about “The Creeping Man”). Elementary has often steered away from the stranger side of Sherlock… Read More »

Elementary Review: 03 x 03 Just a Regular Irregular

The third episode of Elementary continues exploring how Sherlock’s sudden absence has affected his relationships, and once again poses questions about his ability to have and maintain meaningful friendships. So far the series has, naturally, focused on beginning the rebuild of Sherlock’s relationship with Joan. This episode opens this up a little, and asks whether… Read More »

Elementary Review: 03 x 02 The Five Orange Pipz

After the premiere promised that things would be shaken up a little in this season of Elementary, “The Five Orange Pipz” for the most part returned us to familiar territory. There is a murder at the episode’s beginning and an arrest at the episode’s end, and this conservatism is a little disappointing after the energy… Read More »

Elementary Review: 03 x 01 Enough Nemesis to Go Around

Elementary is back in business. After a mixed bag of a second season, where the writers seemed unsure about how to develop Sherlock and Joan’s relationship, the choice to separate them was an interesting one – the show’s greatest strength is in its characters and relationships, and the chemistry of Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy… Read More »
