Elementary/Sherlock SPECIAL: Part One by maryfgr23 Elementary/Sherlock SPECIAL: Part One by maryfgr23
OH MY GOD YES I FINALLY POSTED THIS.
I am so so sorry to all the lovely readers who had to wait so long for this follow up to my introduction of this Special. At first I was bogged down by all the research I had to do for this, particularly the costumes (thank you Tumblr). Then life and work started getting in the way and I literally had to claw myself some free time just to finish the specific coloring I had to do for this page.
Bless you if you get the sci-fi pop culture references here.
Okay I'm off to lie down.
---
Special edit. I have been schooled on the definition of the 18th century. Apparently it ends around the 1800's. Since this takes place around the late 1800's, the Sherlock team is in fact the 19th century. Thank you very much to those readers who politely pointed out my mistake.

Um... It's actually the 19th century (if you want it in the late 1800's, the time Sherlock Holmes was first written.)

Yes I know, but it's actually the late 1800's. I just didn't want to be specific about the date.

Then it IS the 19th century!

2000 = 21st century
1900 = 20th century
1800 = 19th century
1700 = 18th century

Just pointing out an error, not to criticize. :)
I absolutely love your Elementary/Sherlock comics

You mean 19th century, right? If it was 18th century, the men would be in knee breeches!

 

Anyway, thanks once again for this entertaining comic. I so wanted to see Elementary's Holmes and Watson in Victorian garb! It hasn't happened in the series yet, but you made my wish come true!

Yep, just read the other comments. You meant for them to be in 19th century clothes while they are in the 18th century. No worries! Amy run around 16th century Venice in a mini skirt, I don't think those four's clothes will scandalise the locals too much.

Oh my God Joan's dress!! :meow: It's so cute! I love it! And the rest of it is pretty awesome too. Both Sherlocks' comments were perfect. Especially BBC. "It's a cultural thing." And then there's the the Doctor. "Sperm whale and a bowl of petunias to rescue." Oh, how I love 10 :XD:

I think it's brilliant that only the TARDIS and those who are currently touching it have color. It makes the rest of the world feel so appropriately timey wimey in comparison.

And oh my, what adventures will the Sherlocks and the Watsons have this time? Like you would really trust them to not monumentally disrupt the time space continuum.

OH!!!! *inhuman noises* More comics from you make me soo happy. Joan looks so pretty and even though I know that Joan is gonna stay with her Sherlock I'm really glad Joan made it clear she is already a companion. I laughed at John's comment. It was great. Everyone is great! *does a happy dance*

I love the set up!  I have to agree that Joan's outfit is gorgeous.  I wonder what kind of people they will meet?  And I am curious about how the other Dr. Watson would react to a female Chinese version of himself?

Yes--that is exactly what Joan would say. She makes her choices and sticks with them.

(Small nickpick though--they seem to be in 19th century clothes. Did you mean the 19th century?)

Sorry I was worried if it seems anachronistic but for one thing, I wanted to be a bit imprecise about when exactly in the 18th century they are. Also, I just really wanted to draw them in these type of clothes but for the (future<oh hey time travel pun>) plot's sake I had to mention they were in the 18th century. For now, just think it as a basic time traveler faux pas.
