Ha, very good! You needed an index! :)

Which reminds me that I need to update mine. *argh*

I was looking for some Sherlock transcripts. Thank you very much for the hard work!

Thank you so much for your fabulous work on those transcripts, since I believe they'll save my life (or at least a loooooot of time) I didn't know where exactly to leave a comment so I decided to do it here.

I probably will be using some of your transcribed parts in my term paper which i decided to write on identity and politeness in the BBC Sherlock series.

Of course I'll cite you as a source, that's the only right thing to do after all the hours you spent writing this :) (and also because i wouldn't dare to take the credit for something that i didn't do myself)

So again, thank you really much, I appreciate your hard work!

3rd-Aug-2012 07:03 pm (UTC) - Re: Transcripts Sherlock Season 2
It's very kind of you to say so! And good luck with your term paper.
15th-Sep-2012 06:59 pm (UTC) - The Great Game
LOVE the transcripts! Any plans to do The Great Game??
15th-Sep-2012 10:52 pm (UTC) - Re: The Great Game
Yep! I've already started it!
1st-Nov-2012 05:48 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for taking the time to do all the transcripts! I'm crossing over Sherlock with a few other series for NaNo this year and these are a godsend. I'll be sure to give you credit for them. And thank you again for doing them.
15th-Dec-2012 03:59 am (UTC)
Amazing, wonderful work. Priceless for someone who isn't a native English speaker like myself. THANK YOU.
17th-Dec-2012 05:19 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for this hard work you've done! It's really priceless!
23rd-Jan-2013 02:33 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much for doing these transcripts. I was so alone, and I owe you so much.
Sorry. XD Quotes aside! I really appreciate the time and effort you put into this! I haven't had the opportunity to watch the episodes again yet because I haven't got my DVDs at the moment and my Internet is a butt so I can't watch clips longer than thirty seconds- a minute if I'm lucky. So thank you for these, they're really tiding me over until I can get to my DVDs again :) They are also wonderful for helping me understand whatever I didn't catch.
La'ers! ;)
27th-Feb-2013 01:57 pm (UTC)
Hey, girl! First of all thank you for all these <3 Secondly, would you mind doing a transcript for the PBS Q&A with Ben, Steve and Sue? The whole 50 min version in on YouTube and it's HQ! I will love you forever and ever (?) Thanks in advance! :D
27th-Feb-2013 03:47 pm (UTC)
Sorry, but I actually would quite mind doing a transcript for you. Let me explain why:

Transcripts which I have done in the past consist of episodes rather than interviews. I’ve done summaries of interviews and of DVD commentaries but never a full transcript. Nobody else has expressed a need to have that particular interview transcribed – not that I’ve seen, anyway – and to be honest it’s a bit rude to say, “It’s on Youtube,” with the inference, “Go and find it,” without providing even a link to the appropriate page.

Secondly, it’s not straightforward – at least on my computer – to stop and start and rewind the last few seconds of a Youtube video without a lot of click and dragging. I usually work from mp4s or avi files which I can stop, start and rewind using the keyboard, which makes the transcribing work much quicker. If such a file of the interview exists, I don’t know where it is.

Thirdly, as an example, a thirty-minute sound-only episode of Cabin Pressure takes at least four and a half hours to transcribe, including the first typing of the episode, then re-running it to check that I’ve got all the words in the right order and didn’t mis-hear anything first time around, then spell-checking it, formatting it, and finally proof-reading it. When I used to do transcripts of 42-minute episodes of Stargate, where I was typing the spoken words, facial expressions, plus action, they took anything up to ten hours. So a 50-minute sound-and-vision transcript – incorporating facial expressions – would take ... I don’t know, but you’re probably looking at anything between six and eight hours. That is rather a lot of work for just one person, I’m afraid, especially in light of how out of date the interview now is. Not to mention the fact that I do all this work voluntarily and don’t get paid for it!

So, with respect, I have to decline your invitation.

Thanks so much for all of these (not to mention the hard work that must have gone into them). I cannot tell you how many times they've been a godsend!
28th-Mar-2013 10:51 am (UTC)
Thank you for taking the time to tell me! I'm so glad they're helpful.
21st-Apr-2013 09:21 am (UTC)
So I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for all your hard work! These are amazing!!! And super useful for non-native English speaker like me! :)
Truly thank you!
21st-Apr-2013 12:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you for writing! It's very much appreciated.
23rd-Apr-2013 03:58 am (UTC)
you. are. AMAZING. you get that often but surely you don't hear it enough! just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you, thank you for spending so much time on these, this is also a great help to those like me who sometimes can't hear what they're saying exactly between their murmurs. THANK YOU! <3
23rd-Apr-2013 02:32 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you, sweetheart! It's always so nice to learn that all that effort was worthwhile and helpful to people. Thanks so much for writing.
2nd-Jun-2013 04:53 am (UTC)
Thank you very much.
i've found this for a week!! and now i find it. how wonderful!
i'am going to read all of them right now.
22nd-Jun-2013 04:33 pm (UTC)
Ariane DeVere, your transcripts are a gift to the world. I'd call them a random act of kindness, but I know there was nothing random about the amount of care and attention and TIME you put into these. You've nailed all the snappy and periodically unintelligible dialogue, your descriptions of action are hugely helpful, and oh Lord your interjections. (The fandom screams with one voice, “KISS HIM!!”) They capture exactly the feel of the show, or at least the feel for those of us who ship Johnlock. Which, really, isn't anyone else just being willfully oblivious?

So thank you. Thank you thank you thank you.
23rd-Jun-2013 09:59 am (UTC)
What an absolutely marvellous comment! I am grinning like a loon at the moment. Thank you so much.
1st-Jul-2013 02:25 pm (UTC) - Thank you
You are a little gem, brilliant transcript, luurved your comments :-)
26th-Jul-2013 06:50 pm (UTC)
This is great work!

Is it okay if I use the transcripts for a Sherlock references list? I want to put the episodes side to side with the relevant quotes of the canon, to show how much in this show is actually a more or less direct quote or based on Watson's observations of Sherlock. If I ever finish the task, I would naturally credit you and link back to your side.
27th-Jul-2013 11:59 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for asking! I'd be honoured for the transcripts to be used like this. A link back would be appreciated, and please do also give me a link to the finished work so that I can publicise it.

Good luck!

I was randomly googling about Sherlock when I came across this.
I am totally overjoyed and gobsmacked.
You probably don't realise how excited I am because I'm typing in lower case. Sherlock. Cabin Pressure. Transcipts.
Sherlock DVD Commentary.
LOTS OF LOVE for the hardwork you put into this!
2nd-Sep-2013 02:59 pm (UTC) - Thanks
Your work is amazing, and you are hilarious too! There's just one thing I wanted to point out: in Sherlock, Season 1, episode 2 transcript: The Blind Banker, part 2, you mentioned that the numbers written for Soo Lin in different from the others. Well, when you use these numbers, you read from right to left, or up to down, so the numbers would be 1 and 15. Thought you might wanted to know~
3rd-Sep-2013 09:27 am (UTC) - Re: Thanks
Thanks for your kind words.

you read from right to left, or up to down

Are you sure? Because if that's the case then the paint sprayed across Sir William's portrait, the library shelf and the windows of 221B are wrong, because they read left to right.
12th-Nov-2013 03:52 am (UTC) - thank you!!!!!
I want to say thank you!!! before i read these.. really appreciate them.. i've been thinking (and still going to when i have the money) to buy the series. Because there's some scenes I need to replay just to catch the words (sherlock fast talk! The pronunciation!!)
4th-Jan-2014 07:41 am (UTC) - Gahhh
Thank you SO much! English accents take some getting used to if you aren't native. There are so many and they all seem to speak so fast...
10th-Jan-2014 12:27 pm (UTC) - Wreckers
Hi there,
at first a big thank you for your hard work, it's really appreciated and it helped me a lot with those blurry lines in Sherlock.
I've bought Wreckers and I'm appalled about the bad audio quality and that they didn't add subs. Do you have any idea, where I can find a transcript or subtitles for that series?

Thanks a lot again!
10th-Jan-2014 01:51 pm (UTC) - Re: Wreckers
Sorry - not a clue. And don't even look at me - I thought the movie was awful, so I won't be doing a transcript for that one!
13th-Jan-2014 10:39 pm (UTC)
Of all the numerous things to have come out of His Last Vow (I'd say probably 75% of which I'm sure I missed...) I am still impressed, almost a full day after the fact, that you correctly called that Redbeard was going to be a pet from his younger years (dog is actually more likely than bunny - balance of probability) - but, in any case, you are GOOD!! At least as good as Billy...
14th-Jan-2014 01:04 am (UTC)
I am extremely smug about this! There may have been a bit of fist-pumping at the first sight of Redbeard, albeit that there was some disappointment that he wasn't a bunny.

(And thank you for not putting your comment under the transcript for The Sign of Three and thereby giving spoilers to anyone who's not yet seen His Last Vow.)
16th-Jan-2014 02:59 am (UTC) - Wow - great work!
Thank you so much for doing this! Barely scratched the surface - so looking forward to reading them all.

16th-Jan-2014 05:46 pm (UTC) - Thank you so much
I was so happy to find your comprehensive transcripts of Sherlock! My daughter finally talked me into watching it, but I don't hear very well and her copy doesn't have closed captioning. Now I can understand all those times when I ran the show back over and over again, and could never fathom the words!
24th-Jan-2014 04:31 pm (UTC) - thank you again:)
Ariane, Ariane, Ariane!!

As usual, before i started the transcript for s3, i want to say thank you very much.
There is this particular word Mary said in s3e1 when John was removing his mustache (when she teased john regarding sherlock) that i really can't get it. I immediately remembered you (and hang my hope on you). I'm waiting to watch all 3 episodes before reading this though.

Thank you so much.
