Just read some of this delicious bit of naughtiness in the bathtub. I do so appreciate that Mark Gatiss exists. I am also now entirely convinced that Irene Adler’s quip about Sherlock’s cheekbones in Season 2 was all his idea, and was as much a reference to Lucifer Box as to Benedict Cumberbatch’s own magnificent cheekbones.
OMG. Now I am thinking about how perfect a film version of The Vesuvius Club would be with Benedict as Lucifer. Oh god. I can’t…I just can’t.
Anyway, this book (and the sequels) are fantastic and everyone who enjoys British humor and Victorian naughtiness should read them.
EDIT: OKAY. I just went through the tags for The Vesuvius Club, because that is what I do, and OMG THERE NEEDS TO BE A MOVIE WITH BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH NOOOOOOOWWWW.
