JOHN: Sociopath, I get. Still waiting for 'high-functioning.'
That's one of the best lines in the entire Sherlock BBC series, yet it never made it to the screen, and we have it only because of this book, "Sherlock: Chronicles." It was from a deleted scene in "The Reichenbach Fall:"
This isn't like some of the other Sherlock fan-books written by outsiders. Author Steve Tribe is practically part of the Sherlock team, and Mark Gatiss (who plays Mycroft and is co-creator of the series) wrote the foreword to this book. So you know the information is accurate and spot-on.
It's a sturdy, glossy book that sits out on a table in my media room, beneath the TV, for easy reference. After reading it the first time, I binge-watched the entire first three seasons again and noticed so many more little secrets that were revealed by this book.
Seeing selected pages from scripts in the book prompted me to watch the series with subtitles, since the writing is so compelling and the dialogue sometimes rushes by so fast you miss a lot. And seeing pages from deleted scenes is a treat.
It's a fun and fabulous book, heavy on photos and graphic design. It reads like a printed version of the special features you find on Blu-ray versions of the BBC series, yet offering new and fresh material.
The cover says it's "the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of the hits series Sherlock," and it is all that, since Tribe has access to all the insiders. It could have been twice as long and I might have enjoyed it twice as much. The only real downside with "Sherlock: Chronicles" is that it was released before Season 4, but I wouldn't be surprised if the publisher offers an updated version soon.
A true delight for any Sherlock fan.
