Here’s what you’ve been saying since we published Issue Twenty-Two.
I completely agree with your assessment here. I’ve completely fallen in love with this show, despite having a lot of opposition to it in my household. My sister is a die-hard Sherlock Holmes fan who loves Watson, and she refused to watch part the first episode of Elementary because of the changes to Joan’s background. Did anyone else get this show as one that you kind of had to watch several episodes to really get into?

We’ve just had a chat in the office and we think it lured us in slowly, yes – it took a couple of episodes and then we were completely hooked. Thanks for getting in touch! -Ed.
What we’ve been talking about on Twitter:
- We got chatting about hiatuses with @Penns_woods, @travelingheidi and @legionseagle – specifically that long space between Harry Potter books… ah, we remember it well.
- We – perhaps foolishly – asked which people preferred out of Sherlock and Elementary. We got tons of responses – thanks to @Saymorian, @MKUltraMuser, @penn_joanna, @ClassicFilmIdol, @Masqueblanc, @CeceCalabrese, @MysherlockDIARY and @frenchnavygirl for sharing your opinions! We think both shows are great.
- The Editor took her eye off us for two minutes and we got chatting to you all about superheroes. Specifically, we asked for your favourites. @HiddlesDarlings chose Superman – who’s celebrating an anniversary – while @Masqueblanc went for Iron Man and @221B_DE picked Batman… and Sherlock Holmes. @samurang87 nominated the Doctor (with Superman as second choice) and @RyuNoYoake chose Pippi Longstocking. We’re not sure how many of those would be counted as superheroes in the traditional sense, but we’ve never been very traditional. Thanks to all of you who sent us your favourites!
- We retweeted our article on How to Get Involved in Fandom – @HiddlesDarlings pointed out that it’s harder to get uninvolved, but we don’t see the problem. Why would you ever want to get out?
- @MysherlockDIARY responded to our article on Fandom As Family by pointing out that any fandom could be a family, and @Februkauzie reminded us that some fandoms are in larger families by way of established crossover fandoms like Wholock.
- Since we reviewed Shaun of the Dead, we asked where you’d hide from zombies. @221B_DE went for the short-term approach of hiding in a tree, while @Februkauzie opted to prepare for a siege… from the safety of Hogwarts. Well done, both of you, we think you’d survive.
So, if you’re not following @FandomWanderers, you’re missing out on some good gossip!
