So to start off this blog now I have time again and don’t have to worry about deadlines, I’m going to start to post regularly again, I plan on keeping the same formula as before and post on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and if that’s not enough for you all you can pop on over to my other blog Elle Hache where I post about books and music every Monday, Wednesday and Friday!

I’m going to kick this off with a TV Tuesday post, I was recently walking through central London being a tourist in my own city when I stumbled across ‘Speedy’s Cafe’ and I instantly realised where I had found by accident, it was Sherlocks House from the TV series!

Sherlocks house in the TV series isn’t in Baker Street, it is in fact in North Gower Street, at number 168, to film the scenes with 221B on the door the production company drill the numbers over the existing one!

Sherlock has had 4 series, they started in 2010 and have had the final ever episode in January of this year (2017), it was title The Final Problem, which had a sort of torture house vibe to it, which showed just how much effort goes into creating such an impressive series.

If somehow you’ve never seen or heard of Sherlock the TV series, it’s a new and contemporary way of interpreting Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s world famous Sherlock series.


It features award winning actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Dr Watson, all of the episodes are named after titles of the books and are adapted in a modern day way of seeing a detective.

They truly are impressive episodes, so grab some popcorn and sit down to watch it on Netflix, and don’t forget to go and find Speedy’s Cafe and his house above it!

There’s also a museum on Baker Street for the famous detective.
