Raikespeare

The writer-to-be who was instrumental in giving both Poirot and Holmes their voices.

Here's my first question: where is he now?

A good question indeed. I have already determined that there is a good possibility that he will begin posting on one or both blogs in order to give us more info on the detective debacle, at such time as the puppetmasters determine that the plot should advance.

Now that I think about it, he's probably being questioned by the police--being involved with not one but two suspected murderers can't look good.

And he's recent acquaintances with both suspected murderERs (edit: I speak English good). That's... quite a coincidence.

A very suspicious coincidence... :idea: JAMES IS MORIARTY! HAH! I HAVE FIGURED IT OUT! (OK, OK, just kidding.) :D

I really need some of those WMG hats...

I considered it, but he's too young and tech-savvy. Also, he can't be Shakespeare, again too young.

If you are responding to me, I was joking...

I've already mentioned in Hefner's thread: we missed that Raikes has never actually encountered Poirot. He wasn't, as it turns out, posting on his behalf - he just didn't log off at Widdecombe's computer.
I have attempted to suppress my inner hyperspace future gardener crying out against all the injustice I am committing.

True, but there's still a connection.

Had a eureka moment last night--Assuming our good Professor is Mooreiarty, James could easily be where he got the phone number of the Widdecombe residence. I have no problem believing that he'd be able to fake Verhaeren's voice.
