It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat. The literary cult of Sherlock Holmes shows no sign of fading with time as each new generation comes to love and revere the penetrating mind and ruthless logic which were the undoing of so many Victorian master criminals.

But I have a few thoughts, from my SH newbie status: The origin story of Dr. Watson meeting and understanding SH's work was fascinating an...

5.0 Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection
After one year and almost four months, our buddy read, or rather "buddy listen", of the complete Sherlock Holmes canon narrated by Stephen Fry came to an end tonight. I'm still in shock, and I'm sure grief will set in at some point, too. I've immensely enjoyed reading the stories every week an...

4.0 Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans
“To act, Sherlock--to act!” cried Mycroft, springing to his feet. “All my instincts are against this explanation. Use your powers! Go to the scene of the crime! See the people concerned! Leave no stone unturned! In all your career you have never had so great a chance of serving your country.” “Well...

5.0 Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Final Problem
It is with a heavy heart that I take up my pen to write these the last words in which I shall ever record the singular gifts by which my friend Mr. Sherlock Holmes was distinguished. In an incoherent and, as I deeply feel, an entirely inadequate fashion, I have endeavored to give some account of my ...
