And so ends 2012, a packed year for BBC Sherlock and for Sherlockology itself. It’s the close of our first full year of running the website and all the connected social accounts, and ‘full’ is certainly the right word when looking back on the past twelve months.
With one week to go, the project to translate our book, Sherlock’s Home: The Empty House, into five additional languages is doing incredibly well on Kickstarter with over 70 pledges, and has passed 80% of the target. We now just need the final push to get the project organised by MX Publishing over the line.
The Waverley BC appeal has been denied, Undershaw is safe for now!

Thank you ALL for buying the book!
Over the last few months leading up to the High Court Judicial Review, much has been said about Undershaw. We know of its neglected state and present precarious situation, as the house balances between being brought back to life in its original form, and ripped apart by developers, never to stand whole again. The alarming reality to see this house in the flesh however, as some of the Sherlockology team did recently, is far more shocking!
The team behind Sherlock’s Home - The Empty House have confirmed a stunning competition for Sherlock Holmes Week (31st July - 5th August) for those contributors that made it into the book and fans.
Fans will be able to vote for their favourite story/poem from the book and the winners will have their work performed and recorded by a leading Holmes actor. Details of the poll will be released on the Save Undershaw Facebook Page. Fans who vote will go into a draw to win some unique Sherlock Holmes related prizes.
Sherlock’s Home is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble have it at 32% off the cover price (at just $11.55) and the Kindle , Nook , Kobo, and a brand new iBooks (iPad) version are also available.
