An Entirely New Country - Arthur Conan Doyle, Undershaw and the Resurrection of Sherlock Holmes

Synopsis lifted from Amazon:

The late 1890s saw Arthur Conan Doyle return to England after several years abroad. His new house, named Undershaw, represented a fresh start but it was also the beginning of a dramatic decade that saw him fall in love, stand for parliament, fight injustice and be awarded a knighthood. However, for his many admirers, the most important event of that decade was the resurrection of Sherlock Holmes - the character that he felt had cast a shadow over his life.

Cabin Pressure Fanart

As the date draws nearer to Cabin Pressure on the Royal Wedding Day, I'm getting all hyped up and listening to the Cabin Pressure I have on hand! I managed to embarrass myself utterly when the Christmas Cabin Pressure reached the 7-minute christmas bit when I was in the lift this morning going up to my office and I couldn't stop laughing uncontrollably in front of ten other office-types groggily trying to get to work. Hahahaha.

To commemorate that, I shall link a very very nice piece of Cabin Pressure fanart I found the other day: Go to Eastern-Passage's Post! Her art is generally amazing and I love how she's blended bits of the voice actors but also bits of their characters! Martin with freckles! Arthur with mismatched patterned socks! Douglas being a BAMF! And Carolyn feeling very much like Mrs Hudson! Do click to see it and leave her a nice comment!
