[personal profile] damned_colonial posting in [community profile] queering_holmes
Over on [community profile] podficmeta they did something for 3W4DW that I think might work well here. One of the moderators, [personal profile] zvi, posted asking people to suggest things they'd like to have discussed on the community. So, I'm going to do the same, lifting most of the phrasing from her post ;)

Please comment to this post if there's a discussion you'd like to see happen on this community. If you have a full fledged entry, you can tell me that you'd like to do the posting. If you just have an idea you'd be okay with me riffing on, say that and I will.

I'll then post top-level posts prompting discussion on the subjects suggested.

I think this was touched on by other comments, but it would be cool to explore Holmes and Watson as a character/duo type. For example Strangers talks about Poe's detective fiction and the queer nature of the detective character. Then there are re-interpretations like House and Wilson and to what extent the show is or is not drawing off the same tropes.

There's certainly a history of it before H/W e.g. with Poe, but I can't say how far back it reaches. That would make its own reading list :D
