Dear Tom... I paid my first visit to London last October, where I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting you - my childhood hero - at the Time Quest event in Hammersmith. I was so very nervous, that I think I stuttered-out everything I tried to ask / say to you! Let's try it in writing
I think (as do many of your fans and Sherlockian enthusiastis) that your appearance as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC TV production of "The Hound" was fantastic and quite faithful to the flavour of Doyle's creation, although I've read that you were quite displeased with your work in the film. Aside from the "Mask of Moriarty" stage play in the 90's, have you had any other offers to reprise the role, and would you ever be open to revisiting Holmes again (i.e.: in audio format for radio / CD / etc)?
You're still my favourite actor of all time, Tom - I'm dabbling in "the biz" myself, playing Holmes in a new film ("Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow Watchers") -- thanks so very much for taking the time to correspond with your fans as you do.... cheers!
