There's so much to look at through the many cases that John and Sherlock have worked on. It's simply not a one-page explanation, either; each case spans several pages with many post-it note additions from Sherlock. Their bantering via the post-it notes is simply hilarious and completely in character.
As well as case notes, there is several pages dedicated to the real life of Sherlock Holmes- Jeremy Brett, Basil Rathbone, even Hugh Laurie as House- 'interviews' with the cast, information on ACD, etc. Especially interesting to learn all of the little references that Moffat and Gatiss used to bring the original canon into the series.
I highly recommend this book for any Sherlocked fan. The final entry from John brings back all the feels that Reichenbach gave to us to begin with, and a final post-it note from Sherlock is nearly nostalgic. Overall, a wonderful Sherlockian find.
I really like the blog posts from John and other characters for a more inside look into them and into the cases. I highly recommend this book!
The first two seasons are recounted by John Watson in scrapbook form, with post-it notes added by Sherlock, John, and some by Mycroft. The actual cases from the books are compared to those aired as well as the influences for both. We are also provided information regarding Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the various filmed Sherlock Holmes that are considered by fans as some of the best or most influential.
The tone is dead on character-wise, the final chapter on "The Reichenbach Fall" is heartrending, and there's a hint on the end credits page. Very well done. 5 out of 5.
