John Foster proposed the idea to have a special word that clearly distinguishes people, based on the fact whether they like a Sherlock adaptation (BBC’s Sherlock, in this case) or the canon and the character of Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Foster is a devoted Sherlockian for decades, who runs a blog of great value (Sherlock Holmes of St. Charles). The team of Sherlockian-Sherlock agrees with his proposal and we would like to support him.

Please keep in mind that we respect the hard work which is behind the Sherlock series and we sincerely acknowledge the talents of the many great actors (Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Mark Gatiss) who appeared in the show. They well deserve the love and respect they get from their supporters. Our intention is by no means to hurt the feelings of those who like the modern version better.

We do hope that with this distinction there will be less misunderstandings and it will turn out shortly to which category one belongs. We would like to underline that the distinction is not a hierarchy. All fanciers of Sherlock Holmes deserve respect. The definitions help them have more information on each other’s favourites and find out whether they share their feelings or not. - You can read John Foster's post here:
