Welcome to Spooky October at Costume Drama Rewind! All month long, we’ll be tackling historical films that have a supernatural element. We kicked it off with “The Abominable Bride,” the Sherlock episode that returns its characters to their 1890s origins.
*Vincent Starret’s poem 221b is worth a read.
*Get lost in the archives of The Strand.
*Meet Dr. James Barry, the woman who passed as one of Britain’s most male celebrated doctors for half a century.
*Bonus: The Honest Trailer for Sherlock is one of their best.
