Out of all venues for an event dedicated to the discussion of an interpretation of Sherlock Holmes, there could be none better than the Criterion Theatre, located on one of London’s most famous junctions - Piccadilly Circus - and next to the Criterion Bar, famous as the place where Doctor John Watson first heard the name ‘Sherlock Holmes’ spoken aloud by Stamford in A Study in Scarlet.
The Game is On: An Afternoon with Mark Gatiss and friends was held in support of London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard. Since the event was recorded by LLGS, this isn’t a full transcript of what occurred, but rather a collection of many of its highlights that relate most directly to Sherlock. All told, The Game is On was a raucous and hilarious time, with anecdotes coming thick and fast throughout its duration to an almost bewildering, and extremely face aching degree.

We’ve been in contact again with London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard to find out more about the sales process of the Signed Posters during The Game is On at the Criterion Theatre on Sunday November 11 2012, and here’s what they’ve told us:
- There aren’t a confirmed number of posters that will be available for sale, but we’re assured there will be a ‘reasonable’ amount.
- Sales of the posters will take place in the main bar of the Criterion Theatre, so they will not be available for purchase by non ticket holders.
- Sales will take place during the interval and after the talk, not before to discourage early queuing.
In a further addition, it’s been confirmed that Photography by patrons is prohibited, but a photographer has been booked for the event so good quality photographs will be available for all to see soon afterwards.
