A MESSAGE FROM MASSIVE EVENTS ABOUT SHERLOCKED: THE OFFICIAL SHERLOCK CONVENTION
As fans ourselves we totally understand the frustration some of you are having on here! I want everyone to know we are still working very hard on a date that works for as many of the main cast of the show to attend as possible! This has been one of the hardest tasks we have ever had to deal with and we now understand how difficult it must be to film the actual tv show as so many of the main cast are incredibly busy and popular! We just wanted to let you all know that we really do care and we want to deliver the most incredible event we can and that is why things are taking a bit more time that we originally anticipated.
Having said all that, we do appear to be getting somewhere with guest availability now and so hopefully things should start to move forward soon! I also accept that communication is very important and that has not been the best so far. There are always going to be things that I can’t discuss in public, for a whole host of reasons. However, starting today with this post I will come on here and give you all a weekly update every Thursday with how things are going! It may be that I’m on here more if something exciting happens, but at a minimum you can expect to hear from me on a Thursday with some information as to what’s been going on! I will also endeavour to answer any questions I can!
Again, thank you SO much for your patience and support. Going forwards I will ensure that communication is kept up and even more importantly, I hope to have some concrete news on the event in the not too distant future.
PLEASE NOTE: We have since amended this post as Ian Hallard has clarified on Twitter that the Facebook message from “Mark” is in fact NOT Mark Gatiss! Muddled information in all the excitement we’re afraid. It happens, but we apologize for any confusion it may have caused.
We have a new project we’d like your help on - it’s a survey to try and find out exactly where the show is getting its fans from.
This is not about finding out who the “real” fans are, who got into it first, blah blah blah. For the record, this is our definition of a real In The Flesh fan:
Saw one or more episodes of In The Flesh at some point in time
Enjoyed the experience
We’re asking because like everyone else, we’ve watched in happy amazement as this once-tiny fandom has taken off and, and we’re interested in finding out how this happened. If we get a big enough response, the information will help us all to get more people into the show by allowing us to better target potential new fans, and also it will help us demonstrate how far the show has come, and to what extent it has relied on word of mouth or official marketing from the BBC. So it will hopefully become part of the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign too.
Knowing who an audience is obviously really important to a television series, and as we’re big fans of In The Flesh here at Sherlockology - and not just because of Sherlock S2E1 actor Luke Newberry being the lead actor in it - we wanted to reblog this survey to help the wonderful In The Flesh fan Tumblr account Redeemed From The Earth and continue to support the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign as good BBC drama is something we’re extremely passionate about.
Looky what we found? A Free Sherlock inspired typeface!
SpideRays Fonts have paid homage to Sherlock by releasing a free downloadable typeface, with not only the logo style letters, but the 221B style door numbers, Sherlock themed icons and even silhouettes too!
