What adaptation of the canon do the Baker Street Babes consider the greatest Sherlockian film of all time? Which movie weaves the best villain and a long-lost member of the Holmes family into a single immaculate tapestry known as "Thorpe"? Is it true that each and every film would be substantially improved with the addition of mechanized min-T-rexes? And which actor to play Sherlock Holmes provides both the smallest stature and the biggest presence of any to date, despite doing so with both hands wedged firmly behind his back?   Lyndsay and Maria answer these questions and far more in a stunning new interview with Lyndsay's fiance Nicholas Anderson, the founder of the shatteringly unique new society (it is NOT a scion, we learn) The Knights of Thorpe. Discover its origins, how to become a Thorpe yourself, ways to revere the Sacred Film, and rejuvenate your love of Sherlockiana in the most reverential—and perhaps unexpected—way possible.
