TV Tip: Tomorrow, “Garrow’s Law” will tackle the Admiralty (9pm, BBC1)

Before the preview for this Sunday’s episode, a couple of answers and comments concerning the last. The New Sherlock Holmes community has been very busy and they’ve revealed my pro-Garrow-bias. Mea culpa – guilty as charged.

“Please could you post a picture of Mrs. Southouse’s shoes, please?”

Your wish is my command:

“You only talked about Moriaty and didnt say anything nice about Matthew McNulty! Their both important and thats not fair he’s my favourit actor and he’s amazing! >____<“

My apologies. Of course Mr. McNulty did a very good job as well and is also a rather dashing gentleman. May I hope for your forgiveness and post an additional screencap as a sign of my goodwill?

“Will the bastard make it out of the pool? – SH”

Please ask Sir Arthur Hill, I heard the case has been assigned to him.
(If he shouldn’t be in series 2, there will be a situation!)

“Could you post more pictures of Andrew Scott?”

Will two do?

“Did you see Garrow’s iPhone?”

Heh! No, I didn’t! Some people insist one can see an iPhone in the pocket of Garrow’s waistcoat, but nobody could tell me which scene this was supposed to be. Does anybody know more here?

“What was wrong with Garrow saying that Southouse was a Macaroni?”

Macaronis, though the term was often used for gay men as well, were basically men who dressed and even spoke in an outlandishly affected and epicene manner. If you look at the illustrations, you’ll know why it’s not very likely anybody could have thought Southouse to be a Macaroni…!
Being a Macaroni was a fashion statement, a lifestyle choice. Being homosexual wasn’t, isn’t and never will be a choice, despite contrary claims by groups consisting of hopeless blockheads.

“What episode will Sam West be in, and what part will he play?”

Major Edrington Samuel West will be in the last episode of “Garrow’s Law”, and he’ll play Thomas Erskine, the prosecuting barrister in the case brought by Sir Arthur Hill against William Garrow and Lady Sarah Hill.

So, and now on to the preview for tomorrow’s episode!



Returning from war, weary and wounded, British sailors are treated with contempt and abuse at the Greenwich Hospital. One man bravely exposes the corruption, and finds himself in a Newgate cell. Southouse accuses Garrow of mixed motives as his uses the case to attack The Admiralty – and in particular its Under Secretary, Sir Arthur Hill.

It goes without saying that I’m looking very much forward to this; after all a good part of “The Joyful Molly” is dedicated to the history of the Royal Navy in the 18th century. While I usually write about the good men like Admiral Collingwood rather than the rotten apples, I’m very interested to learn more about the other side of the coin.

And because I’m shallow: Wheee! NAVY UNIFORMS!

I said I’d post two, didn’t I? 😉
