SHERLOCK HOLMES

 

Sherlock Holmes was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle during the Victorian Era;

His detection methods were based upon logic, reason, and solid physical evidence.

Eventually Doyle grew tired of his creation and decided to kill him off at the

Reichenbach Falls in a fatal battle against the evil Professor Moriarty.

London, England and the rest of the world plunged into deep mourning

Over the death of this fictional detective whom they loved and admired;

Conan Doyle was eventually forced to resurrect the beloved detective

Killing Holmes was a bad mistake; Doyle couldn’t escape his creation.

 

Holmes had a loyal sidekick and biographer in Dr. John Watson

Over time Watson was spoofed in Hollywood and seen as inferior

Logic fails there as Watson was a doctor-just blame Nigel Bruce

Medical men must be quite intelligent and Holmes wouldn’t tolerate

England’s favourite narrator if he was unable to respect Dr. Watson

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson continue to “live” and solve new cases.

 

 

P.S. My favourites:

My favourite Holmes novel is The Hound of the Baskervilles.

My favourite Holmes short story is “The Dancing Men.”

My favourite Holmes actor is Jeremy Brett. 

My favourite Jeremy Brett performance of Sherlock Holmes is “The Resident Patient.”
