About


The Three Patch Podcast is a podcast dedicated to the fandom culture, social issues, creative works and analysis inspired by and related to the BBC Sherlock series. Broadcasting monthly multi segment episodes, our crew of consulting fans tackle character analysis and speculation, highlight fan ingenuity and enthusiasm, explore the shipping and relationship-side of things, and share some of the more comic aspects of this fandom life. The name of the podcast is a reference to the three patch problem of A Study in Pink.

In 2013, our first year, we released 35 episodes including 16 regular episodes and 19 episodes of Spoilercast, our special spoiler episodes which covered Sherlock series 3 filming.

In January 2014 we released Rat, Wedding and Bow (Episodes 16, 17, and 18), reaction roundtables posted within 24 hours of the airing of the latest three Sherlock episodes.

We have since released our 50th main episodes, recorded live panels at several fan cons, and covered setlock for series 4 in painstaking and self-consciously amused detail in Spoilercast episodes 28 through 38. Sherlock-feels are still going strong.
