Sherlock: Every Canon Reference You May Have Missed in BBC’s Series 1-3


BBC’s Sherlock has brought the classic adventures into brilliant life—fans across the world are delighting in every moment. But more is hidden within the episodes for the more serious fans—nonstop hints to the original adventures and the classic films as well. Within this book are all the references, with quotes from the actors and creators, notes from John and Sherlock’s blogs, and loads of colorful symbolism. There are vistable locations in London and a look at the constant byplay, far more than simple friendship, between the two heroes. With character bios and notes on all the unseen cases, this book bursts with references for Sherlock’s fans, those who know the century of lore and those who are yet to begin it.

“It’s a little daunting to see how much work the show’s makers put into these little Easter eggs for fans, and it’s even more so to imagine how much time Frankel spent finding them all” – Rambles.Net


I thought I was reasonably knowledgeable about the Doyle canon–but I couldn’t come close to the detail in this little book! I can’t wait to watch the shows again, and read along to catch every little reference. Fun for all Sherlock fans–and all Obsessive-Compulsives who need to know absolutely everything about Holmes.” – Sherry B, Reviewer
