In an interview with Bored Panda, Brennan said he had many ideas “marinating” in his head for a long time and they all “finally crashed together in just the right way”. “Firstly, of course, there’s what a lot of us have been going through with social distancing. I’m spending far more hours at home, since I’m now working from home (I’m a college professor) and pretty much all “leave the house” options are off the table,” said the author. “I’ve been consuming a lot of comfort media — books that I’ve read before and loved, TV shows that I’ve seen before and loved, and that kind of thing.” Brennan added that he thinks that British village mystery shows are “about as comfort-viewing as it gets” and that’s how the image of “people sleuthing around a quaint British village at the most beautiful stage of summer” got into the pot.

“I’ve been watching (and loving) the new Star Trek: Picard series. Patrick Stewart is so wonderful in it, and I was thinking how much I would love to see him in more things, and how really nice it was also to see a show that had a diverse age range in its cast,” said the author. This eventually led to Brennan pondering about Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen’s friendship which, combined with the British village idea, became the premise for Brennan’s plot.

Brennan thinks that the best thing about the two actors’ friendship is how delighted they seem to be in each other’s company. “They always come off as the other one’s biggest fan, and I think that it’s a beautiful example of what a good friendship is,” said the author.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
