Entertaining trifles


in Geek stuff, Writing

Watching the Jeremy Brett adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes story “The Golden Pince Nez” left me wondering about some of the specific changes made between the story and the ITV Granada TV series, specifically the role of Holmes’ brother Mycroft.

An idle Google search about the substitution of snuff for tobacco ash in the story led me to An Observance of Trifles: a thought-provoking and entertaining discussion of each component of the Holmes canon, including the television and film adaptations.

I have only read a few entries so far, and have found much which had not occurred to me, despite having heard the Stephen Fry audiobook versions of each story several times. I look forward to making my way through the site as a periodic distraction.
