I have absolutely nothing in this world but time - so I believe I should invest it wisely...

Don't worry about any repeats on 'Said he.", 'He said.' etc, just wanted to give myself some choice in the final edit! :wink:

Here's Holmes for story 2, The Red Headed League

(21.09)

I don't know if it matters, but in the list of keywords in the opening post, the word "detective" is misspelt as "detetive".

Hello Peter,

I also had a slight prob with this one...

When I was reading the lines indicated for Watson - I found that I was referring to Sherlock as 'Dr' in one place - this
brought me up short, a bit!

I'm afraid that I got caught up in editing 'Scandal', so completely forgot to mention this! (My BAD! V. Sorry!)

Elizabby, if you would like to clear this up for me, let me know - and I shall give you
a slightly more coherent location for the lines in question!

If I got it wrong - nil problemo! - ONE of us will have to read those lines! :lol:

Andrew :D

PS: I have noticed in other stories that Sir Conan Doyle often gets carried up in the narrative - and so
neglects to mention just who is actually speaking! (Even geniuses - eh?)

Thank you, Andrew.

***

Beth, the lines “My dear doctor, this is a time for observation, not for talk. We are spies in an enemy’s country. We know something of Saxe-Coburg Square. Let us now explore the parts which lie behind it.”

are Sherlock's instead of Dr Watson's. I'm going to include them in my recording and re-upload. EDIT: this has been done; it's now 21.25 long.

Thanks Peter, the script is now corrected (which should make it easier for editing too, Andrew) I must have got confused with the page turn and missed that paragraph - you're right, it quite clearly belongs to Holmes!

Andrew, as this is a separate paragraph, it should be easy enough to edit out of the Watson file.

No worries, Beth!

(I stumbled over the line - and decided not to record it anyway!)

I had a quiet bungalow yesterday, so struck while the iron was hot!
Now in the process of tidying up Sections 5 and 6 for PL!

Wer'e cooking with gas now! :wink:

Andrew :D

(Apologies for the pops and clicks - I just can't seem to beat them - and I'm using
two 'pop' filters! :roll:

No Pressure, Matey!

(We don't have a 'deadline'!)

I just feel that I've been so useless lately, that I need to make the best possible use of my time! :wink:

Lotsaluv,

Andrew :D

(And just think how much longer poor old Peter's files will be! :lol:

Couple of notes, Beth. Something happens at the ten minute mark - not sure if I had a drop out,
or simply lost a line somewhere.

Also - at 16:03 - I may have cocked something up...

These are 'easy fixes' - so worry ye not! (I just wanted to let you know that I was aware of them! :D)

Very Best!
