Remember that time we won The Geekiary’s Favorite Summer Show poll?
Are you up for a spooky season rematch? Vote here!
We can do this again!
Mass voting schedule.
ETA: the poll isn’t closed yet, keep voting!
URGENT ACTION REQUIRED!
An In The Flesh fandom signal boost for the The Geekiary’s Favourite Horror Themed TV Show 2014, because the Sherlock fandom is pretty good at getting behind polls and bringing them home - and also because, Luke Newberry (Sherlock: S2E1) is one of ours too!
So please cast your vote and help the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign in persuading the BBC to commission series 3 of In The Flesh!
Voting closes TODAY, 20th October, 23:59 EST and 21st October, 4:59 GMT
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.
So please, take two minutes to fill in our short survey, we’d really appreciate it :)
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.
#SaveInTheFlesh - Sunday 10pm UK time - let’s grab the BBC’s attention!
Hello fellow In The Flesh fans! Wow, there are a lot of us now, aren’t there?
So, we all want series 3. Unfortunately, it’s not a done deal. To make sure we’re perfectly clear in letting the BBC know we’re behind the show, we propose that on Sunday night at 10pm UK time, we all start talking about #saveintheflesh
- We all create a post - this isn’t about likes and reblogs, this is a show of numbers. It could be a bit of fan art you’ve made, your favourite quote, a picture of your favourite character, or even just one of the images above
- Here are screencaps for images and here are the scripts for quotes
- In the caption, say how much you like the show and that you want another series
- Mention BBC Three’s tumblr account in the caption so they get a notification when you publish. To do this, simply include “@ bbcthree” without the space. This is important - we want them to see
- Tag it saveintheflesh
- Schedule it for 10pm UK time on Sunday night
- Go and write on BBC Three’s facebook page that you want a new series
- tweet #saveintheflesh at BBC Three
- after creating your own tweet, retweet a few others from the tag a few minutes later
Timing is everything here people! If we all work together at the same time, we can send a strong, united message of support for the show to the BBC. If we’re lucky, we might even trend.
Remember: Sunday 22nd June 10pm UK time
Spread the word!
Team Sherlockology believes that In The Flesh deserves to live and supports #SaveInTheFlesh - Best of luck on Sunday with the campaign!!
In the Flesh - Review
Very occasionally a new drama comes along that really makes you sit up and take notice. For many reading this, Sherlock was one such series. From the opening scenes of the very first episode, you knew it was different. Taking a totally fresh approach to a tried and tested genre, it was incredibly smart and boasted a sharp script with a complex narrative, applied a highly unique and innovative visual style, not to mention sourced some of the most talented British actors working today. The BBC had certainly struck gold with Sherlock and to say the same of Dominic Mitchell’s BAFTA winning post zombie apocalypse drama In the Flesh on BBC Three and BBC America, would not be an exaggeration.
Open House London 2013 – see the Sherlock Locations you rarely can
Late notice we know, but this weekend (September 21 and 22) sees hundreds of iconic buildings across London throw open their doors to the public. Among them are a number of buildings that have memorably appeared onscreen in Sherlock, and we’ve selected the three best choices below.
For sale: Irene Adler’s residence
Got a spare £3.25m ($5m) laying around?
Then you could move into a 2 bedroom ground floor flat at 44 Eaton Square, the building used to portray the exterior of Irene Adler’s residence in Sherlock S2E1: A Scandal in Belgravia!
Read more about the property listing on zoopla.co.uk.
Read more about how the building was used onscreen in Sherlock in the Locations Guide on Sherlockology.com.
