The Three Patch Podcast is a podcast dedicated to the fandom culture, social issues, creative works, and analysis inspired by and related to the BBC drama series, Sherlock. Broadcasting monthly episodes since 2013, our crew of consulting fans tackle character analysis and speculation, highlight fan ingenuity and enthusiasm, explore the shipping and relationship-side of things, and share some of the more comic aspects of this fandom life. The name for the podcast is in reference to the three patch problem of A Study in Pink. Our sister podcast, Spoilercast, covers setlock and spoilers (and corresponding speculation) for the next series of Sherlock.

Customer Reviews

I’m not only a contributor, I’m also a listener...

But really, I listened to the first 50-odd episodes back to back over a six month period before I heard they were looking for new voices. I can’t convey without an hours-long talk how much this podcast has impacted my life. Every month gives me new thoughts and feels about Sherlock Holmes, fandom, feminism, and the LGBT+ community. Definitely worth a listen. :)

The highlight of every month

Sometimes you get a collection of people who can make magic together. The Three-Patch crew is like that. Brilliant, witty human beings who help us Sherlock fans find so much silly, sexy, serious, sweet, and superb content in the wide world of fandom. Smirk was right: I’m suffering the people-I’ve-never-met-are-my-besties side effect. Love love love!

Sherlock Holmes fans, unite!

A more thoughtful, in-depth and fun wild ride for a Sherlock Holmes fan I could not ask for. Starting out primarily as a podcast for the recent modern BBC Sherlock adaptation, this goes so far above and beyond for a free show, the mind just boggles. While a strong emphasis on female fandom and can get pretty explicit, please don't let that stop you. While light hearted at times, the laughs and tears can be pretty serious. For any fan, this will fulfil the need for serious scholarship and put a smile on the face of pretty much any Sherlock Holmes fan. The site that goes along with the podcast is also quite extensive with the best time-stamped notes I have ever seen for a podcast, and I follow quite a few. Thanks, 3 Patch, keep up the good work!
