The first official guide to the BBC hit series Sherlock. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will already be familiar with The Great Game -- in which all characters and events in the novels are assumed real and discussed accordingly. BBC hit Sherlock has brought Conan Doyle's legendary detective to a whole new audience and Sherlock: The Casebook is The Great Game for the next generation. This is no ordinary guide. Each case is brought to life on the page and re-examined through Dr Watson's blog, Inspector Lestrade's police reports, newspaper articles about the crimes, Sherlock's detective notes and any other surviving clues from the cases. Interspersed amongst the evidence are exclusive interviews with the stars of the show, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Rupert Graves, writers and co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and the production team on everything from writing the scripts and bringing the characters to life on screen to set design and production. This is a multi-dimensional companion to Sherlock and a glorious tribute to the world-famous detective.

5.0 Sherlock: The Casebook - Love this book!
*5 ++ Stars**The Gush* I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS BOOK! I found this completely by accident on Amazon and was fortunate to be able to get it since it only came out in Britain (send it over here ASAP!). I wasn't sure what it was but I'd hoped they'd put out something based on my favorite TV show E...

OH MY GOSH HELLS YES. The notes XD Not going to review it, but it's not all about the TV series, there's some things about the books and classic TV series and such. But the scrapbook type set out is hilarious.

It's a mix of a casebook "created by John Watson" and brief sections on various aspects of the show, Holmes' mythology, and how each episode relates to the Doyle version. The sections written by John have post-it notes from John, Sherlock and occasionally Mycroft. The font used for John and Mycroft'...
