Cheesiest Holmes Lines
Even in good Holmes adaptations there can be some cheesey dialogue. In the straight-to-DVD Holmes adaptations it can be hard to escape the bad lines.
Either way, there's something specially enjoyable about poorly written lines. Whether it's an awkward simile, an clumsy piece of exposition or an unsubtle hint, they bring a special joy.
It is the DRC's goal to collate a list of as many of these poor lines as possible. And then enjoy them.
Originally we had in mind TV or Film productions, but if you find cheese in books, articles, comics or any other media, feel free to submit that too!
Once we have a sizable list, we'll have some sort of knockout competition or vote to put them all in order of cheesiness.
I've no idea when that will be - maybe in a month, maybe a year. Whatever seems right.
To submit your discoveries please email them to me at DoylesRotaryCoffin@outlook.com
Remember to include which adaptation they came from, roughly where (eg "Chapter 3" or "30 minutes in") and the name you'd like the find credited to.
I've also set my Twitter account up so you can Direct Message me even if we aren't following each other. I am @BaronVonBork.
