Shirley Holmes Listed in
The Original Baker Street Babes



Howard Ostrom has compiled a fascinating series examining actresses throughout history that have played the role of Holmes or Watson. Shirley is included in The Original Baker Street Babes : Part 4 - 1980-2012.

You can also read the complete series of The Original Baker Street Babes, and much more at the comprehensive site No Place Like Holmes.

A decade (and more) on from the show's first run conclusion, it's been exciting to see the BBC Sherlock series, and CBS' Elementary, both sure to keep fans of the Holmes' canon entertained for years to come. It's been especially interesting to see Elementary, and their imagining of Moriarty as a woman. As Shirley fans well know, we've been there, and I will always maintain that the Shirley / Molly dynamic is one of the most rewarding I've seen.


And for those of you lamenting the lack of opportunities to re-watch Shirley online, you might be interested to know that as of March 2014 the majority of episodes from seasons 1 and 2 have reappeared on YouTube - somewhat surprised the uploader has not been directed to remove them. Enjoy them while they last.

Where Shirley Fits
in the Holmes Canon

"The third son Sebastion married a woman named Peggy. They had one son Robert who married Joanna. Robert works as a diplomat for Great Britain in Canada. His daughter Shirley (3) has shown the family flair for mystery work solving 39 cases as well as for acting and disguise. (It should be noted here that Sebastion inheirited a puzzle chest from his Uncle Sherlock. Inside the Chest is a note to the solver of the puzzle Sherlock states that he has left no heir. Sherlock left the chest with Sherrinford before he left for the events of THE FINAL PROBLEM. At that time Sherlock had only Raffles Holmes as a son and he did not hold great hope for the boy) (SHIRLEY HOLMES Television program)"

You, Me & The Kids Episode
"Hollywood Kids" features Meredith Henderson

You, Me & The Kids was a docudrama series from the late 1990's that explored how growing adolescents deal with the world around them, interspersed with drama and documentary. Meredith was featured for several minutes in an episode titled "Hollywood Kids", where she talks about her role as Shirley.




The embedded video above starts with Meredith at around 4m40s. Kind thanks to Bianca for alerting me to the video's existence - it's a valuable trip down memory lane.


Mythquest on Netflix

In 2001, Meredith starred as Cleo in the 13 episode series "Mythquest", which has recently been added to the Netflix (US) library.

"Teenagers Cleo and Alex Bellows lose their father in a computer program called the Cyber Museum, which allows them to travel into myths and inhabit the main characters. As they negotiate the myths, they must search for their dad."

If you're a Netflix subscriber, check it out.

Where Can I See Shirley ?

With the show completing it's first-run episodes in 2000, and without an official DVD release, finding a way to see the series again can be tricky. As far as I know, it is not currently screening anywhere, either on broadcast, cable, or streaming service - but that does not mean it is unavailable.

For several years it has been possible to purchase a copy of the complete series - a search for "ioffer" and "shirley holmes" will point you in the right direction. I don't know who the seller is, and I'm not recommending anything - just letting you know.



The Adventures of Shirley Holmes

         Unsure what all the fuss on the site is about - here's a quick introduction to the show ......

"The Adventures of Shirley Holmes" focusses on young Shirley, the great-grand-niece of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous Sherlock Holmes. Meredith Henderson, who started in the role at age 12, is the recipient of two Gemini nominations for her portrayal of Shirley.

Bright, kooky, and prepared for everything -- Shirley's sleuthing kit contains everything from a magnifying glass to state-of-the-art cell phones and laptops.

Shirley is aided in her sleuthing by Bo Sawchuk (Sherlock's Dr. Watson), and wins despite the efforts of her nemesis, Molly Hardy (Sherlock's Moriarty). For many years, there was one mystery that plagued her more than any other -- the mystery of her mother's disappearance -- but that question was finally answered for fans in the third season.

With viewership in over 80 countries (including Australia, the US, and Great Britain), the show has been dubbed into French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Norweigian, Polish and Turkish.
