The new issue of Mysterical-E is now up after a delay, and I'm back with a column I wrote back in November. The column is entitled Elementary, My Dear Holmes! and you can find it here. In the column I take a very general look at some notable Holmesian pastiches, both good and not-so-good. I spell out my conclusions about Sherlock and its American derivative, Elementary, and why one show gets Holmes so right and the other gets Holmes so wrong.
Note: Unfortunately there are no accompanying images to break up the block of text, but some day I will reprint the article on here complete with illustrations.
