The more observant amongst you will have noticed that I have just changed my header photo from Sherlock to Stuart.
- Of all of Benedict's work, Stuart is the one that means, and will always mean, the most to me. It speaks to my heart
- Stuart as a piece more accurately reflects what this com is about which is that we also cover issues of social justice, big society and politics (with a small p)
- Benedict's co-star in Stuart (and actually I would argue the star of the piece) is Tom Hardy. It seems from the number of hits to the feature that I ran on Tom yesterday that we all have a soft spot for Mr Hardy (who wouldn't?)
- It differentiates this com from the numerous other Sherlock coms that are now out there
I will still run as many features on Sherlock, and Sherlock Holmes, and Canon, and Arthur Conan Doyle, and the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, as I have always done. They all have a special place in my heart and nothing is ever going to change that. I just feel that Stuart as a piece more accurately reflects the ethos of this com.
However, I fully appreciate that it is Sherlock that brought us together, so if com members feel strongly about it I will, of course, change it back!
If you want it changed back, speak now!
