There are so many wonderful moments that fandom has given me, so it's hard to pick one.
One that really meant a lot to me was the second SHAM (Sherlock Holmes Annual Meetup), the first of those that I organised. I was living in Colchester at the time but for some reason organising an event that took place in London seemed like a good idea at the time.
Fifty people came. We went on a guided walk of Sherlockian locations, went to a pub, hung out in the National Gallery, and had dinner together. Oh yeah, and we stood in front of Speedy's and held up signs with letters that spelled out "I believe in Sherlock Holmes". Series 2 had just finished airing so there was a real big buzz. It was so good to see so many fans in one place, to feel like I was a part of something. I am still getting used to the fact that there are people in the world who want to spend time in my company so it was also very overwhelming at that point, but in a very positive way.
