The Watson Letters started as a series of emails between myself and a friend, which amounted to little more than idle banter. These eventually became the basis of my Watson Letters Blog and were written in what I imagined to be the style of Arthur Conan Doyle (after several bottles of Newcastle Brown Ale). The original blog was part of a website (about Sherlock Holmes), but this proved too time-consuming and costly, so I decided to back-track a little and focus only on the blog.
The Watson Letters is set in a not-quite post-Victorian, steampunk parallel universe, where all sorts of real and imaginary literary characters can, and do, turn up to confound our hero Sherlock Holmes and his trusty assistant Doctor Watson. Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, Mary Shelley, Wilkie Collins and even Conan Doyle himself tread the metaphorical boards along with Hannibal Lecter, Madame Arcati, Bill Sikes, the Hooded Claw and Richard Hannay.
