    When I first saw this being advertised for pre order on I wasn't sure whether to buy it or not But I'm very glad it did Because as it turns out Sherlock The Casebook is much than a simple tie in guide to episodes of the TV showThe casebook is basically split in to three main categories sections talking about the creation of the different episodes their adaption from the original stories and the illusions and references to original canon contained in them; sections talking about the casting and creation of the characters; and finally John's own hand written casebook or 'scrapbook' as Sherlock scathingly calls it punctuated with often rather amusing sticky note conversations between Sherlock and John detailing the cases he and Sherlock have covered over the course of the two seriesThe main reason this casebook is so brilliant is because like with John's website rather than simply re writing the events that occur on screen and within the actual TV series it instead builds on them Namely in that it answers some of the niggling little uestions that never had the time or opportunity to be answered within the actual episodes and provides us with a little insight in to the not so blissfull domestic lives of Sherlock and John Ever wondered exactly what it was that Sherlock said to the judge during Moriarty's trial that got him thrown out for contempt? Why he has a human skull on his mantelpiece? What's with the antelope skull stuck to the wall and why on earth is it wearing headphones? What did John have to eat at Angelo's? How do I contact 'Jim from IT'? Is John aware of his fanbase? How old are the characters? What story inspired Moriarty's ringtone?In addition to providing us with some answers for some of the niggling little uestions that never uite got answered in the actual episodes the casebook also examines these cases from all angles including newspaper cuttings published at the time of the crimes police reports stolen by John an impressed Sherlock notes autopsy reports photos of the crime scenes and bodies diagrams and floor plans print outs of emails and phone call transcripts and snippets of press releases linked to Sherlock and John including one published at the time of Sherlock and John going on the run following Sherlock's arrest It also includes additional fun and interesting touches such as a look at 'Richard Brook''s CV photos of Little Kirsty and Bluebell 'The Magical Glow in the Dark Rabbit' from Hounds of Baskerville and even amusingly apparent facebook pictures tagged by John Watson at one pointMy favourite section has got to be one which talks about the interior of 221B mainly the rather bizarre collection of items the clutter it Another really interesting part was a section talking about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's life which seemed surprisingly sad and difficult The first section also talks about the shows conception and how Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss came to create itAll in all this really is a truly brilliant tie in guide that I am extremely glad I brought and would really recommend to any member of this fandom Gorgeously illustrated cleverly presented funny informative and interesting this book is a brilliant accompianment to the BBC series and one that I really would recommend fans check out

    Well I think that the BBC book series of Sherlock The Casebook is a wonderful product to own This is because thatthis book is filled with visual graphics such as crime scenes the characters the euipment and the intriguing sense of puzzles that might capture people's imaginations I think that the bond of Sherlock Holmes and his companion Doctor John Watson have been brilliant because you learn about John Watson's past in the first episode of Sherlock series one episode one ''A Study In Pink'' Also the character of Mycroft Holmes Sherlock's brother is brilliant and also Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade is a good character So the actors of Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Mark Gatiss and Rupert Graves do deserve a reward for being their characters in series one and series two of Sherlock Anyway the value of £900 for this product is absolutely fantastic because it is less than the recommend retail price of £1500 I mean it is just a good bargain to purchase However I would recommend this product to children and to adults who are between the ages of twelve and thirty five Also buy this product if you are have an interest in drama at school such as myself So thank you couk for being a reliable and prompt service to me and to my family Five stars all round From Richard Hill

    This is partly a non fiction book about the making of the BBC series Sherlock and the mechanics of making an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's classics there are great interviews with the writers and you really get a feel for the behind the scenes creation of the seriesThis book has another side however which is perhaps my favourite part which is when we get to see the cases from both series as told by John Watson with constant interruption from Sherlock of course These parts are really entertaining also there is the normal amount of homoerotic undertones so the shippers will be happyThis is a very uick and easy read as it is written in small sections so it is really good to dip in and out of while your'e reading something elseI would recommend this book to any fan of the series and I think it would make a particularly good gift for any Sherlock fan

    I'd like to begin by saying I was very surprised with how well made this casebook turned out to be When I purchased it I thought it would be a book full of halfhearted comments about the six episodes of the TV programme that I had already analysed countless times myself I thought the book itself would be slapdash at best I could not have been wrong The writers and artists of this casebook evidently put a ton of heart and time and care and effort into its creationWithout spoiling its contents I can tell you that Sherlock The Casebook is definitely worth a read It's filled with new uirky little facts about the show and what goes on behind its scenes; it includes uotes from the show's directors and writers Steve Moffat and Mark Gatiss as well as lead actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman; it provides an in depth exploration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's life and the publication of his original short stories; and last but not least it includes the much anticipated notes of John Watson and his verging on psychopathic flatmate Sherlock HolmesEven though I've watched both seasons of the show time and time again the ending never fails to utterly crush me And the casebook does just that as well Reading John's last entry was like reliving the first time I watched The Reichenbach Fall I am not ashamed to admit than many tears were shed that night Though the book itself is a light read the notes that Sherlock and John wrote to each other throughout the book really bring a new perspective to their friendship and make them seem so much real Additionally the facts and uotes by the producers are nowhere near redundant Everything in this book brings clarity to specific aspects of the show it characters and its storylinesI definitely recommend this book for any fan Curl up in bed have a nice hot cup of tea and try not to cry into your mug when you reach the end And lastly I would like to conclude with the fandom's powerful ringing motto BELIEVE IN SHERLOCK

    This was a really interesting read by someone who clearly is a fan of Sherlock Holmes The book talks about each episode with Sherlock and Watson making comments sometimes Mycroft on post it notes which are amusingSeries 1&2Guy Adams has put in cast and crew interviews as well as tie in to the original novels with a brief history on Sir Arthur Conan DoyleI would recommend this to a fan of the series as it's about thatHope Guy Adams writes another one for Series 3
