This book was so good. I'm completely obsessed by all things Sherlock and really enjoyed reading this book and seeing references from the original Conan Doyle books being transfered onto the tv series. I found I couldn't put it down and always made sure I had it close at hand while re-watching episodes of Sherlock (for the 100th time!) a great gift for any Sherlock fanatics

Thank you Valerie Frankel 13 Jun. 2014
By Rosa Kohler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was sure that some intrepid geek had to have gone through the episodes of the new BBC series looking for canon references, and I was right. As a huge fan of Holmes pastiches, I appreciate this reference work despite the typos. It will be a major help in my own research work.

OCD Fan's Delight! 20 Aug. 2014
By Sherry B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought I was reasonably knowledgeable about the Doyle canon--but I couldn't come close to the detail in this little book! I can't wait to watch the shows again, and read along to catch every little reference. Fun for all Sherlock fans--and all Obsessive-Compulsives who need to know absolutely everything about Holmes.

ALL THINGS SHERLOCK: From the hit series 1-3. 16 Feb. 2015
By Pennie Mae Cartawick. Author of the Sherlock Holmes book series - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Being a Sherlock Holmes author myself and an avid fan of the BBC series 'Sherlock' I just have to take my hat off to the author of this volume 'Valerie Estelle Frankel. Through her diverse and thoroughly exhaustive research of a behind the scene look at EVERYTHING' series 1-3 has to offer, she did an amazing job.

Valerie E. Frankel is not new to the publishing world. She has won several book awards and is the author of various pop culture genres. An extremely established and diverse progressive talented lady and once a lecturer at San Jose State University.

'Sherlock: Every Conan Reference You May Have Missed in the BBC Series 1-3' brings to light this classic adventure seeker Holmes and his ever ready companion DR. Watson too fans across the board and into our homes once again. This book offers unseen references, footnotes, and quotes delivered with flawless attitude for all of the heavy literary works associated in the 'Sherlock' episodes. Connecting the dots to each behind the scene portrayal by taking an extensive gander into London's well known locations. The friendship of the two main characters, and textual elements play a large part with the guided pursuits of rich insight. We dwell a deeper cast with the screen portrayal of the BBC hit series 'Sherlock' starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes, and his esteemed companion, Martin John Christopher Freeman as Dr. Watson. A great reference guide to all die hard fans of the show.

Great book for Holmes fans 13 Dec. 2014
By Tom Knapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Valerie Estelle Frankel is far more invested in the Holmesian tradition than I. In fact, one might assume she has studied the great detective's many lives under a magnifying glass, deerstalker cap firmly planted on her head.

Her book is an exhaustive bit of research. She examines the particulars of the BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as his erstwhile companion, Dr. John Watson, and she relates every plot twist, every minor character, every tiny clue and textual reference to Doyle's original work, as well as the various classic screen portrayals. I suspect the reading would be a little dry if you saw down and read the book through -- unless, I suppose, you are a true Holmes fanatic. I instead kept the book handy, and each day I read one or two chapters, most connected to a single episode and its many references.

Frankel examines each episode's title, its story, connections to canon, locations, innuendo (are Holmes and Watson more than friends?), ties to the actors' outside work and references to pop and British culture, such as the closely connected series Doctor Who and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the protagonists' work on The Hobbit.

It's a little daunting to see how much work the show's makers put into these little Easter eggs for fans, and it's even more so to imagine how much time Frankel spent finding them all.

The author seemed to cover every imaginable reference, crossover ... 5 Dec. 2014
By David R. Baynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author seemed to cover every imaginable reference, crossover, etc. The only problem were some errors in facts in the latter part of the book. I don't know if this was by the author or an editor or what. The most egregious was a citing of Molly as "Sally".
