The Baker Street Babes
About This Show
The Baker Street Babes are an all-female group of Sherlock Holmes fans who talk about everything from canon to Cumberbatch, Charles Augustus Milverton to Jude Law, and dancing men to Jeremy Brett.
We love Sherlock Holmes and we love having well informed, but also quite fun discussions about it. We’re all young and we’re all females, but we’re all die hard Sherlockians/Holmesian.
It’s a demographic within the Sherlock Holmes fandom that is new and growing and doesn’t yet have a voice. We hope to become that voice and we want to prove that we’re not just going to coo over Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch, as lovely as they are, but that we know the canon and want to have discussions about it as well.

Episode 76: Sherlock and Shakespeare
In this episode Babes Maria, Lyndsay, Amy, and Tiffany take a look at the connections, overlap, and similarities of our favorite consulting detective and the many characters of Shakespeare's creation. From Jeremy Brett to John Barrymore to Jonathan Pryce to Peter O'Toole and Benedict Cumberbatch, many of the actors who played Holmes in their life also played Hamlet. Is there a connection? Is what Baz Luhrman did for William Shakespeare what the BBC did for Sherlock Holmes? We talk about this and more in Sherlock & Shakespeare!

Quite possible the best Sherlock Holmes podcast!
These ladies know their stuff and they have a ton of fun with it, which is the best thing! They're knowledgeable and have introduced me to so many new iterations of Holmes and Watson.
