Episode transcripts (and commentary, and DVD extra transcripts)

Just for anyone who missed my recent announcement elsewhere:

For years people have been asking, “Why hasn’t Ariane made the transcripts available to download?” To which my answer has been along the lines of, “You know why she’s here? She’s not paid or anything.”  
But, three and a half years after starting to write Sherlock transcripts, I have finally relented and have made the transcripts available to download.  
Not only that, but I’ve done variations on just the full transcripts.  They are:

1.  One single file containing all the episodes (including the pilot and Many Happy Returns).  428 pages, with a page index and everything!
2.  One single file containing all the episodes (including the pilot and MHR) with just the speaker and the spoken words.  No descriptions or voice tones, no snarky asides from your transcriber.  A mere 192 pages!
3.  One single file containing a list of all the lines spoken by each of 25 of the characters throughout all the episodes (including the pilot and MHR).  158 pages, with a handy page index so you can easily see who’s included and then jump to the appropriate character’s lines.

All files are available to download in Word (.docx) or as a PDF.  To save clogging up this forum, if you’re interested in more details, head to my Livejournal blog for the links.

Additionally, the original transcripts, together with DVD commentary summaries/transcripts, and transcripts of the DVD special features can be found here.

Thank you very much, Ariane, for the amazing work you did and for making it available as download. I am sure this will help many of us in finding quotes, etc. even quicker and easier. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Wondeful, Ariane! Thank you so much for all those beautiful transcripts again and for making them available in this manner! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Episode transcripts (and commentary, and DVD extra transcripts)

Wow, thank you so much! I had created file #1 already by myself but without MHR, and made some feeble attempts to transform a copy of that to file#2.
Now I will exchange them for #1, #2 and #4

Sorry, sorry - I had so many places to post the link and forgot this forum.

I hope to work on the DVD Extras fairly soon.

Re: Episode transcripts (and commentary, and DVD extra transcripts)

There are now transcripts of new material which appears only on the Special Features of the DVD of The Abominable Bride. They do not include descriptions of every visual moment – you should buy the DVD yourself to see those! But I hope that they may be useful in particular to viewers whose first language is not English and/or who are unable to access the subtitles.

There’s no audio commentary on the DVD. I suspect that in a few months there will be a new DVD called something cunning like “The Special Special” and we’ll all be expected to buy it again to get an audio commentary and one or two extra extras.

Warning: Each of the Special Features contains spoilers. Enter with care if you haven’t seen the episode yet.

Re: Episode transcripts (and commentary, and DVD extra transcripts)

Back in September last year I announced that I had finally made all of my Sherlock transcripts available to download.  I have now updated all of the downloads to incorporate the transcript of The Abominable Bride.  However, for the benefit of anyone who downloaded earlier versions and then edited/annotated them and doesn’t want to tamper with them, I’ve also added TAB-only files in the hope that they’ll be useful to a few people.

The various downloadable versions of the transcripts are:

1.  One single file containing all the episodes (including the pilot, Many Happy Returns and the Special).  473 pages, with a page index and everything!  Additionally, there is a TAB-only version.
2.  One single file containing all the episodes (including the pilot, MHR and the Special) with just the speaker and the spoken words.  No descriptions or voice tones, no snarky asides from your transcriber.  A mere 213 pages!  Additionally, a TAB-only version.
3.  One single file containing a list of all the lines spoken by each of 25 of the characters throughout all the episodes (including the pilot, MHR and the Special).  179 pages, with a handy page index so you can easily see who’s included and then jump to the appropriate character’s lines.  Additionally ... no, sorry, you’re on your own with that one.

All files are available to download in Word (.docx) or as a PDF.  To save clogging up this comm, if you’re interested in more details, head to my updated LJ blog entry for the links.

Now, you see, this is the way I should be treated, with the bowing down and all. ;)

Seriously, you're very welcome.  It's always nice to know that people are excited even now to discover the transcripts.

I'm new to the fandom but I'm amazed by the energy of the fans here !
