    Thanks for this podcast! The insights into both the blogs and transmedia (definitely done right in ‘Sherlock’) are fascinating. I’m a U.S. fan, eagerly awaiting Series 2.

    I must say, I love the character (and the show and the site) but John is a *terrible* writer. Did Martin Freeman get a say on how his blog posts were written?

      I find them simple and sometimes unclear – but that’s how diaries often are.
