There are a few weeks to go before the teams in The Great Sherlock Holmes debate are finalised, but here are the initial people that have been confirmed onto the teams in the first 24-48 hours.
BBC – Roger Johnson (BSI) (UK), Kate Workman (USA), Dan Andriacco (USA),
Guy Richie Movies – Kieran McMullen (USA), Joe Revill (UK), Larry Feldman (USA),
We’re working through lots of other approaches as well and looking forward to many more. We’ve confirmed that there will be at least 80 audience members drawn from fans of the Facebook page for The Great Sherlock Holmes Debate and numbers are growing nicely on there.
We’re particularly excited to have Roger Johnson (editor of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London journal) involved and several of the other societies around the world will have people on the teams too. It will be interesting to see who joins the side of the movies – initial voting on Facebook is strongly on the side of the BBC, but then most votes have come in from the UK so far.
