Murder Rooms Blog Party: Oct 26th-Nov 1st

I’m co-hosting this with The Dark Beginnings.

We’re inviting any Murder Room fans to join us for reviews of the books, episodic reviews, collective thoughts on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dr. Joseph Bell, and so on.

If you have never heard of it, this will be a great introduction for you to a tragically short-lived but brilliant BBC murder mystery series. It follows the fictional antics of Doyle in his real-life friendship with Dr. Bell, who inspired the character of Sherlock Holmes. The mysteries are creative, blending familiar elements from Doyle’s short stories into unusual settings, with a sense of humor, irony, and depth that is rare in detective stories.

We invite you to participate (please do!) in whatever way strikes your fancy, to spread the word if you can, and to follow our posts.

If you intend to participate, please let me know so that I can track down and share your blog post on tumblr when it goes live.

Here’s a button if you wish to share / participate.
