Rob nunn has written a Sherlockian pastiche – that is, a fictionalized reimagining of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle – called The Criminal Mastermind of Baker Street.
After this conversation, I have a better appreciation for the ways in which being a fan of something can evolve into a more considered exercise in historical context, critical analysis, and debate. What Sherlockians do is what you might have observed in the Stranger’s Room of the Diogenes Club as part of the Sherlock canon. Considered discussion and intellectual exercise and creative expression with a shared experience.
Rob’s creative exercise would have come to nothing – and likely wouldn’t even have started - without his deep passion and analysis. The passion that fuels so many people in their creative pursuits, the pure fandom of whatever it is you’re doing, takes just a slightly different spin here with a Sherlockian context.
#VerseShow comprises conversations that give voice to creators, their process, their struggles, and the celebrations of their work. It's an interview podcast with a bend toward curiosity about the creative process.
