Out Now: Sherlock Holmes Magazine #1

A new magazine celebrates the Great Detective: Sherlock Holmes Magazine #1 is out now, and features plenty of great content we’re sure Doctor Who fans will love.

The first issue swiftly sold out, but such incredible demand has led to a second print-run, thankfully. Nonetheless, we advise you get in on the ground floor before this, too, sells out!

As you’ll no doubt have noticed, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock, written by Steven Moffat (The Empty Child/ The Doctor Dances), Mark Gatiss (The Crimson Horror), and Steve Thompson (Time-Heist), occupies the front, but articles inside further cover the original books by Arthur Conan Doyle; Nigel Bruce’s incarnation of Dr Watson (who starred opposite Basil Rathbone’s Holmes); the work of Cavan Scott and George Mann; and more.

Here’s what the first issue promises:

  • On set: Enola Holmes and The Irregulars
  • Elementary my dear Alexa
  • A study in tartan
  • The Spanish Secret Files
  • When Holmes was banned
  • Watson! We have a problem
  • Defending Nigel Bruce
  • Bruising encounters
  • Moriarty reimagined
  • 10 years of BBC Sherlock
  • The story of A Study in Scarlet
  • The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
  • Live theatre in lockdown

Sherlock Holmes Magazine is the brand new print magazine for all fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous creation.

This fun and informative publication is packed with articles, pictures, interviews, puzzles and more. Every incarnation of the Great Detective will be covered, from the worlds of books, television film, theatre, radio, and everything in between.

You’ll find articles celebrating the original ‘canon’, as well as adaptations like BBC’s Sherlock, Granada TV’s Sherlock Holmes, CBS’s Elementary, and the many films, plays, games, comics, pastiches and spoofs.

If you love Holmes, you’ll love this magazine. The game is afoot!

There’s also a rather fetching picture of Tom Baker in The Hound of the Baskervilles on the back cover.

You can order your copy of Sherlock Holmes Magazine #1 now, priced from £7, including postage and packaging.
