Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
INCIDENTAL EPISODE: THE GREAT SHERLOCKEDCC SCAVENGER HUNT with the Baker Street Babes (4th July 2018)
“…did you miss me?”
How this isn’t the tagline for this incredible event, taking place across every corner of the San Diego Comic-Con, is beyond me as it marks the return to the public eye for the SDCC portion of the awesome Sherlock Holmes fansite, the Baker Street Babes. Last seen in operation during the convention in 2016, the Babes have been sorely missed: during their last iteration, they created some of the most epic memories for Sherlock fans with their groundbreaking off-site gatherings. Possibly becoming too big, too fast, they decided to step back, rethink, re-organise, regroup – and they have returned with something truly magnificent!
Teaming with some amazing nerd brands, the Babes have created an epic Scavenger Hunt, working from the mission statement that participants don”t just follow in the footsteps of the Great Detective, they must BECOME him. Bold words! To explain what that means, and to give more of a taste of what fans can expect, we are joined by Kristina Manente, aka Curly, on the show to talk about what it’s meant to be a Baker Street Babe in some pretty intense spotlight, why they’ve chosen this manner to return to the fold, and what the Scavenger Hunt promises to bring to the Great Game which is San Diego Comic-Con! Maybe she’ll drop in some clues along the way!
