LESTRADE & A DORIAN REVIEW


(A Study in Scarlet © 2009 SelfMadeHero)
Lestrade makes a brief appearance towards the end of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Here's his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. I do like Lestrade. Like Watson, he's often misrepresented - mostly as a bumbling incompetent glory hound (again I think the Rathbone films are to blame there).

Also, nice things have been said about Edginton and I's first book, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' here which brightened up my day.

So, are you a Leh-strayde or Leh-strahd man?

I've said both often, but I believe the correct pronunciation is Leh-strayde (as it's written).

I shall bow to your wisdom, then.

I. N. J. Culbard said...

I take it you were a Leh-strahd man then?

I was Schrodinger's Lestrade, and vacillated between both states...

Like it. He looks like David Warner.
