Meet the Parents

I did some research into 1960's UK fashion for descriptions in 'Acceptably Close to Love' that I didn't end up using, and as I was browsing Google, I kept getting photos of Jean Shrimpton. Whereupon I discovered that she looked pretty much identical to my mental image of young!Mrs Holmes. Jean Shrimpton is rather prettier than I imagined, but otherwise fits rather nicely.







And, in the spirit of my favourite game of 'if you put that celebrity and that celebrity together, they would make this celebrity', my mental image for Mr Holmes has always been Jeremy Northam (if he had hazelly eyes). I think it's the nose. And the slightly sarcastic eyes.








There you go, people, answers to questions you didn't have. You're welcome.
