Hello everybody,
That podcast was really fantastic!
I have learned so many about Sherlock Holmes. I thought that he was a really person until I listened to this podcast!
Recently, I bought a hat like Sherlock's hat (I don't know the name of that kind of hats is this), so my friends started calling me Sherlock Holmes... Sherlock Holmes and I feel that's funny!
I haven't watched any film about Sherlock but I hope to watch one of them soon after my exam as.
I like Detective Conan, the manga show, it's wonderful anime talk about a young detective turned to child and all the cases are crimes and murders!

Wow! I like Detective Conan too! :D

Wow! :-D

Many thanks for all those struggles , so delicious .

Hi everyone,
I´m new on this website and I must say that I like it very much. It has very interesting things and It gives me the opportunity to learn new things about English language. I´ve read most of the books about Sherlock Holmes and I love it. It is one of my favorite characters.

Even though I never watch films about Sherlock Holmes before, I still think that he is a real person, and he is very mystery

Thanks for this podcast. It's wonderful!

I'd would say the detective things well I like it a little but Sherlock Holmes I didnt hear about him before
Anyway I agree with both of you I agree a little with No and a little with Adam thank u so much

Hi everybody,
I love all films about Sherlock Holmes, but before now, I did not know that Sherlock Holmes isn’t real person. I listened this series of podcast and I knew that. Thank you very much, because today I have learned one new information.
