The Curious Incident of the Doggerel in the Night-Time

The Conan Doyle estate is infamous for trying to control all presentations of the Great Detective, and I always figured that they were too strict but someone had to do that or we’d have TV shows bringing Holmes into the present and making Watson into a woman. Anyway, the new show has decided that Holmes must be an action figure because audiences won’t identify with an intellectual crime solver (you know, like POC or queers). Someone at the Grauniad complained, and there is a defense of the new approach, complete with alleged poetry, noting that Doyle himself stooped to that sort of thing.

Thanx to Tor.com.
