Sherlock is back. Both from the grave and for our viewing pleasure. With Series 3 now on Netflix, we’ve hardly been doing anything else.
Except, perhaps, making tea. Because there’s just something about that perfect hot beverage that fortifies you for whatever lies ahead. Which, with Sherlock, could be nearly anything. So, with that in mind (and for obvious other reasons that involve tea being wonderful), we’ve been making a lot of it.

-- Lwaxana Troi to Odo
Majel Barrett was the first lady of Star Trek. Though her name or her face might not be instantly recognizable, she appears in TNG, DS9, and Voyager as the voice of the Federation computer. She’s also integral to the mythology of the franchise, playing both Spock’s non-Kirk love, Nurse Chapel, and Counselor Deanna Troi’s mom, Lwaxana. It’s the latter role that has probably made the bigger impact on modern fans, and this week, she’s bringing the act to Deep Space Nine.
“You can’t do serious comic book films!”
“You cannot do dark superheroes!”
“No one’s ever made an old television series into a movie!”
Executive Producer Michael E. Uslan remembers well the indignant howls. During the 1980s, every studio executive in Hollywood slammed their doors in his face. They refused to hear his pitch for a comic book movie aimed at adults. None of them believed that a summer blockbuster could be based on a character that the editor of DC Comics at the time referred to as “dead as a dodo.”
That all changed on June 23, 1989.
