Sherlock Holmes - Case of Copper was made as an IBH Film Studies project, which turned out rather well. I attempted to write a script as if it had been Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote it, using the same language and style of writing. Aside from writing the script, I was also the Director, Editor, and Chief Actor in the film. A lot of work, that turned out well. There was numerous other crew members who where a crucial part in making the film, not only actors, but people behind the set as well, including youtube member M4771, who was the chief camera man. I hope you all enjoy 'Sherlock Holmes - Case of Copper'

"Enola, by her very name, which spelled backward is "alone," is no stranger to her mother's penchant for ciphers and hidden meanings, especially of the botanical sort, but when her mother suddenly disappears on her fourteenth birthday, Enola feels that the birthday gifts left behind for her contain the secret of her mother's whereabouts. Her much-older brothers, Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes, are, however, clueless about the disappearance until an audit of the manor's accounts shows that their mother has been embezzling funds for years, enough to provide herself with considerable "mad money" far from the restraints of Victorian widowhood."Read the complete review at Books For Kids

My First Meeting with Sherlock Holmes - Burt and Scott each share their own first experience with the great detective
The Editor's Gas Lamp - from the Baker Street Journal, Vol. 1, No. 2 (1946), "What Is It That We Love In Sherlock Holmes?"
"There are several questions which arise from the report of Dr. Watson on the activities of Sherlock Holmes in connection with the case that grows out of the death of “Black Peter” Carey.
First, Watson tells us that at the time of this case Holmes had “an immense practice.” However, the facts appear otherwise. If Holmes had an immense practice, why did he spend most of a week investigating this case when he was not employed to do so and before he was ever consulted?
We know he was brought into the case by Insp. Stanley Hopkins a full week after Peter Carey (aka Black Peter), a retired sea captain, was found dead, impaled to his cabin wall by a steel harpoon. But before Holmes even met with Hopkins he had already begun, and partly completed, his investigation.
We are compelled to ask why Holmes, if he had such an immense practice, found time to undertake an investigation in a case in which he had not been employed or consulted. His investigation must have begun several days before he was consulted by Stanley Hopkins. We are told that, following an evening telegram, Hopkins met next day with Holmes to discuss the case. The death of Black Peter had occurred seven days prior..."
"One of the most difficult things in animation is to give the true feeling of weight. This seems to be especially true in 3D where characters often feel like they float rather than have any effect from gravity. The particular pencil test presented here was done for a promo for a show called "Sherlock Holmes in the 21st Century" that Filmation was pitching back in 1986. The assignment, as it was explained to me by the director, was that this was the climatic scene in the show. It had to play well and give a true feeling of struggle and doom. This is Moriarty dragging Sherlock Holmes, who is unconscious, to the edge of the top of a large tower in order to throw him off to his death. At the last minute a beam of light shines down and blinds Moriarty who drops Sherlock and he himself trips and falls off the tower..."
This week, the literary world celebrated the birthday of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I, like most of you, knew him as the creator of literature’s ultimate detective, Sherlock Holmes. What I didn’t know about him until recently is that he was involved in the real-life legal battle leading to the creation in 1907 of the Criminal Court of Appeal in Great Britain.
"...This book was published and marketed as a mystery. And it is a mystery. It's also a western and a damned fine one. All the elements are there, and Hockensmith doesn't stint on period details that show he actually knows what constitutes a western. This novel is a fantastic example of precisely how western writers today can rebuild their market space.
The story itself is funny at times, hilarious at others, and the ranch, the hands and the working life of a cowpuncher described with great flair and accuracy. Overlooked as a western novel, but praised as a mystery, HOLMES ON THE RANGE delivers the goods on both genres with wit, charm and excellent writing. That said, there are also plenty of times where the storyline is serious and the scenes intense...

"Her name is Enola Holmes and she is the much-younger sister of the celebrated fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and his brilliant older brother Mycroft. Enola is a girl with spunk and smarts, which are put to the test when her mother disappears on Enola's 14th birthday. Enola's older brothers, both conventional Victorians, believe that a finishing school is the best place for their untamed sister. Enola, however, has other plans. After a daring escape from her country home, Enola heads to London where -- using all of Sherlock Holmes' methods of disguise and then some -- she sets herself up in London as a woman detective, solving cases as she avoids her brothers' attempts to discover her whereabouts..."
Sherlock Holmes tour far from elementary, my dear Watson
Titchard, a Sherlockian scholar, is tour guide on a walk that gives visitors a taste of places associated with the Great Detective.
Along the way he demolishes a number of myths that have grown around the hero of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous creation.
For a start, however, we have to play a game, the only rule of which is that we accept that Holmes and Watson, Moriarty and Irene Adler and all the rest were real people and not an author's inventions.
So now, "The game is afoot!" to borrow a quote from The Abbey Grange.
First, those myths. Says Titchard: "Let's talk about the meerschaum pipe he never smoked, the deerstalker cap he never wore and the Inverness cape he never had."
