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'

The exhibition, including items from the collection of the late Richard Lancelyn Green, includes various interactive features...
"Narrated by Stephen Fry, the collection’s patron, the exhibition showcases a range of interactive displays and a 'new' Sherlock Holmes mystery, giving visitors the chance to try their hand at being a clever sleuth as well as fully immerse themselves within the extraordinary world of Sherlock Holmes.
It also includes interactive readings of selected works by Conan Doyle, virtual display panels and a new Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Case of the Portsmouth Doctor, written and performed specially for the exhibition."Read the full article at 24 Hour Museum
From the Books For Kids Blog ....
"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

Brad Keefauver of Sherlock Peoria contemplates a Holmes specific Wiki : To Sherlockipedia and Beyond . . .
Sounds like a terrifc idea. The original Wikipedia, in the meantime, has done an excellent job with the Canon themselves - Wikipedia: Sherlock Holmes
The ten minute interview on film that occasionally shows up, in full or in excerpts, on various DVDs and Sherlockian documentaries has been posted at YouTube by TVDAYS
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is now online. Each story is read by a different Librivox member, and while the quality varies a bit the good will and volunteer spirit behind the project more than makes up for it.
In the works are Memoirs (get a sneak preview here) and Return (progress report here)
