Did you know that…

…Sherlock Holmes never actually existed? He is a literary figure invented by the English author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930). Shrewd private investigator Holmes solved complex criminal cases in 56 short stories and four novels.

…Sherlock Holmes is a scientific detective and most famous for his skills of deduction, deriving happenings from minor clues and details?

...Sherlock Holmes also is the world's first and only consulting detective, meaning that he advises other detectives (private ones as well as Scotland Yard employees) in difficult cases?

…all but two of the Sherlock Holmes stories are written from the perspective of Dr. Watson? Holmes first met his loyal companion in the novel A Study in Scarlet, which is a “Reprint from the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D.”

…Dr. Watson is, of course, a literary invention, too? However, he was modelled after one of Sir Doyles close friends.

…Holmes resides in 221B Baker Street, London, which is easily the most well-known literary address? Baker Street 221B really exists, and contains a Sherlock Holmes Museum today.

…Holmes’ most famous principle is “When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”

…Holmes was supposedly interested in a woman named Miss Irene Adler, whom he met in the story A Scandal in Bohemia? There is, however, no evidence that they ever had an affair.

…Sherlock Holmes smokes regularly (he eccentrically stores his tobacco in a Persian slipper) and uses morphine and cocaine occasionally?

…Doyle killed Sherlock Holmes in one story, but was forced to restore him to life after enormous public protest?

The Hound of Baskerville is a Sherlock Holmes story? You've probably seen the movie. Now go read the novel.
