Can it be that four years have lapsed since the "From Gillette to Brett" conference held in Indianapolis? The answer would appear to be "yes," as that remarkable event - which featured an appearance by Edward Hardwicke, who played Dr. Watson to Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes - occurred in 2003.
Wessex Press (aka Steve Doyle and Mark Gagen, both members of the Baker Street Irregulars) have announced From Gillette to Brett II, being held in Indianapolis, Indiana from November 16-18, 2007. Their website has all of the information, but here's the official announcement:
In 2003 Wessex Press sponsored one of the most memorable Sherlockian conferences of all time. Devoted to Sherlock Holmes on stage, screen, television, and radio, From Gillette to Brett featured a film festival, Sherlockian vendors, and an all-star roster of distinguished speakers and presenters. And now, like every box office success, the time has come for a sequel!The cost for registration is only $99 and the Saturday evening banquet is an additional $47. Quite a bargain for admission to see a stellar cast. The Wessex Press website has the complete information, including accommodations and speaker lineup. I have links below to travel arrangements as well (hotel reservation information can be found on the conference site).
And to demonstrate how far we've come in just four years, here's the YouTube version:
The game's afoot!
