It is conceivable that the fellow might hold it back to see what bids come from this side before he tries his luck on the other. There are only those three capable of playing so bold a game; there are Oberstein, La Rothiere, and Eduardo Lucas. I will see each of them. My friend has so often astonished me in the course of our adventures that it was with a sense of exultation that I realized how completely I had astonished him. He stared in amazement, and then snatched the paper from my hands.
This was the paragraph which I had been engaged in reading when he rose from his chair:. A crime of a mysterious character was committed last night at 16, Godolphin Street, one of the old-fashioned and secluded rows of eighteenth-century houses which lie between the river and the Abbey, almost in the shadow of the great tower of the Houses of Parliament. This small but select mansion has been inhabited for some years by Mr Eduardo Lucas, well known in society circles both on account of his charming personality and because he has the well-deserved reputation of being one of the best amateur tenors in the country.
Mr Lucas is an unmarried man, thirty-four years of age, and his establishment consists of Mrs Pringle, an elderly housekeeper, and of Mitton, his valet. The former retires early and sleeps at the top of the house. The valet was out for the evening, visiting a friend at Hammersmith. From ten o'clock onwards Mr Lucas had the house to himself. What occurred during that time has not yet transpired, but at a quarter to twelve Police-constable Barrett, passing along Godolphin Street, observed that the door of No. He knocked, but received no answer.
Perceiving a light in the front room he advanced into the house and again knocked, but without reply. He then pushed open the door and entered. The room was in a state of wild disorder, the furniture being all swept to one side, and one chair lying on its back in the centre. Beside this chair, and still grasping one of its legs, lay the unfortunate tenant of the house. He had been stabbed to the heart, and must have died instantly. The knife with which the crime had been committed was a curved Indian dagger, plucked down from a trophy of Oriental arms which adorned one of the walls.
Robbery does not appear to have been the motive of the crime, for there had been no attempt to remove the valuable contents of the room. Mr Eduardo Lucas was so well known and popular that his violent and mysterious fate will arouse painful interest and intense sympathy in a widespread circle of friends. Here is one of three men whom we had named as possible actors in this drama, and he meets a violent death during the very hours when we know that that drama was being enacted.
The odds are enormous against its being coincidence. No figures could express them. No, my dear Watson, the two events are connected - must be connected. It is for us to find the connection. They know all they see at Godolphin Street. They know - and shall know - nothing of Whitehall Terrace. Only we know of both events, and can trace the relation between them. There is one obvious point which would, in any case, have turned my suspicions against Lucas. Godolphin Street, Westminster, is only a few minutes' walk from Whitehall Terrace.
The other secret agents whom I have named live in the extreme West End. It was easier, therefore, for Lucas than for the others to establish a connection or receive a message from the European Secretary's household - a small thing, and yet where events are compressed into a few hours it may prove essential.
Mrs Hudson had appeared with a lady's card upon her salver. Holmes glanced at it, raised his eyebrows, and handed it over to me. A moment later our modest apartment, already so distinguished that morning, was further honoured by the entrance of the most lovely woman in London. I had often heard of the beauty of the youngest daughter of the Duke of Belminster, but no description of it, and no contemplation of colourless photographs, had prepared me for the subtle, delicate charm and the beautiful colouring of that exquisite head.
And yet as we saw it that autumn morning it was not its beauty which would be the first thing to impress the observer. The cheek was lovely, but it was paled with emotion; the eyes were bright, but it was the brightness of fever; the sensitive mouth was tight and drawn in an effort after self-command.
Terror - not beauty - was what sprang first to the eye as our fair visitor stood framed for an instant in the open door. I beg that you will sit down and tell me what you desire; but I fear that I cannot make any unconditional promise. She swept across the room and seated herself with her back to the window. It was a queenly presence - tall, graceful, and intensely womanly. There is complete confidence between my husband and me on all matters save one. That one is politics. On this his lips are sealed. He tells me nothing. Now, I am aware that there was a most deplorable occurrence in our house last night.

I know that a paper has disappeared. But because the matter is political my husband refuses to take me into his complete confidence. Now it is essential - essential, I say - that I should thoroughly understand it. You are the only other person, save these politicians, who knows the true facts. I beg you, then, Mr Holmes, to tell me exactly what has happened and what it will lead to.
Tell me all, Mr Holmes. Let no regard for your client's interests keep you silent, for I assure you that his interests, if he would only see it, would be best served by taking me into his complete confidence. What was this paper that was stolen? If your husband thinks fit to keep you in the dark over this matter, is it for me, who have only learned the true facts under the pledge of professional secrecy, to tell what he has withheld?
It is not fair to ask it. It is him whom you must ask. I come to you as a last resource. But without your telling me anything definite, Mr Holmes, you may do a great service if you would enlighten me on one point. From an expression which my husband dropped in the first shock of this disaster I understood that terrible public consequences might arise from the loss of this document.
I cannot blame you, Mr Holmes, for having refused to speak more freely, and you on your side will not, I am sure, think the worse of me because I desire, even against his will, to share my husband's anxieties. Once more I beg that you will say nothing of my visit. Then she was gone.
What did she really want? Think of her appearance, Watson, her manner, her suppressed excitement, her restlessness, her tenacity in asking questions. Remember that she comes of a caste who do not lightly show emotion. What did she mean by that? And you must have observed, Watson, how she manoeuvred to have the light at her back. She did not wish us to read her expression. You remember the woman at Margate whom I suspected for the same reason. No powder on her nose - that proved to be the correct solution.
How can you build on such a quicksand? Their most trivial action may mean volumes, or their most extraordinary conduct may depend upon a hair-pin or a curling-tongs. Good morning, Watson. With Eduardo Lucas lies the solution of our problem, though I must admit that I have not an inkling as to what form it may take. It is a capital mistake to theorize in advance of the facts.
Do you stay on guard, my good Watson, and receive any fresh visitors.
I'll join you at lunch if I am able. All that day and the next and the next Holmes was in a mood which his friends would call taciturn, and others morose. He ran out and ran in, smoked incessantly, played snatches on his violin, sank into reveries, devoured sandwiches at irregular hours, and hardly answered the casual questions which I put to him.
It was evident to me that things were not going well with him or his quest. He would say nothing of the case, and it was from the papers that I learned the particulars of the inquest and the arrest with the subsequent release of John Mitton, the valet of the deceased. The corner's jury brought in the obvious 'Wilful murder', but the parties remained as unknown as ever. No motive was suggested. The room was full of articles of value but none had been taken. The dead man's papers had not been tampered with. They were carefully examined, and showed that he was a keen student of international politics, an indefatigable gossip, a remarkable linguist, and an untiring letter-writer.
He had been on intimate terms with the leading politicians of several countries. But nothing sensational was discovered among the documents which filled his drawers. As to his relations with women, they appeared to have been promiscuous but superficial. He had many acquaintances among them, but few friends, and no one whom he loved. His habits were regular, his conduct inoffensive. His death was an absolute mystery, and likely to remain so.
As to the arrest of John Mitton, the valet, it was a counsel of despair as an alternative to absolute inaction. But no case could be sustained against him. He had visited friends in Hammersmith that night. The alibi was complete. It is true that he started home at an hour which should have brought him to Westminster before the time when the crime was discovered, but his own explanation that he had walked part of the way seemed probable enough in view of the fineness of the night.
He had actually arrived at twelve o'clock, and appeared to be overwhelmed by the unexpected tragedy. He had always been on good terms with his master. Several of the dead man's possessions - notably a small case of razors - had been found in the valet's boxes, but he explained that they had been presents from the deceased, and the housekeeper was able to corroborate the story. Mitton had been in Lucas's employment for three years. It was noticeable that Lucas did not take Mitton on the Continent with him. Sometimes he visited Paris for three months on end, but Mitton was left in charge of the Godolphin Street house.
As to the housekeeper, she had heard nothing on the night of the crime. If her master had a visitor, he had himself admitted him. So for three mornings the mystery remained, so far as I could follow it in the papers. If Holmes knew more he kept his own counsel, but, as he told me that Inspector Lestrade had taken him into his confidence in the case, I knew that he was in close touch with every development. Upon the fourth day there appeared a long telegram from Paris which seemed to solve the whole question:. A discovery has just been made by the Parisian police [said the Daily Telegraph] which raises the veil which hung round the tragic fate of Mr Eduardo Lucas, who met his death by violence last Monday night at Godolphin Street, Westminster.
Our readers will remember that the deceased gentleman was found stabbed in his room, and that some suspicion attached to his valet, but that the case broke down on an alibi. Yesterday a lady, who has been known as Mme Henri Fournaye, occupying a small villa in the Rue Austerlitz, was reported to the authorities by her servants as being insane. An examination showed that she had indeed developed mania of a dangerous and permanent form.
On inquiry the police have discovered that Mme Henri Fournaye only returned from a journey to London on Tuesday last, and there is evidence to connect her with the crime at Westminster. A comparison of photographs has proved conclusively that M. Henri Fournaye and Eduardo Lucas were really one and the same person, and that the deceased had for some reason lived a double life in London and Paris.
Mme Fournaye, who is of Creole origin, is of an extremely excitable nature, and has suffered in the past from attacks of jealousy which have amounted to frenzy. It is conjectured that it was in one of these that she committed the terrible crime which has caused such a sensation in London.
Her movements upon the Monday night have not yet been traced, but it is undoubted that a woman answering to her description attracted much attention at Charing Cross Station on Tuesday morning by the wildness of her appearance and the violence of her gestures. It is probable, therefore, that the crime was either committed when insane, or that its immediate effect was to drive the unhappy woman out of her mind. At present she is unable to give any coherent account of the past, and the doctors hold out no hopes of the re-establishment of her reason.
There is evidence that a woman, who might have been Mme Fournaye, was seen for some hours on Monday night watching the house in Godolphin Street. Even now this report from Paris does not help us much. Only one important thing has happened in the last three days, and that is that nothing has happened. I get reports almost hourly from the Government, and it is certain that nowhere in Europe is there any sign of trouble. Now, if this letter were loose - no, it can't be loose - but if it isn't loose, where can it be? Who has it? Why is it held back? That's the question that beats in my brain like a hammer.
Was it, indeed, a coincidence that Lucas should meet his death on the night when the letter disappeared? Did the letter ever reach him? If so, why is it not among his papers? Did this mad wife of his carry it off with her? If so, is it in her house in Paris? How could I search for it without the French police having their suspicions aroused?
It is a case, my dear Watson, where the law is as dangerous to us as the criminals are.
Every man's hand is against us, and yet the interests at stake are colossal. Should I bring it to a successful conclusion, it will certainly represent the crowning glory of my career. Ah, here is my latest from the front! Lestrade seems to have observed something of interest. Put on your hat, Watson, and we will stroll down together to Westminster.
It was my first visit to the scene of the crime - a high, dingy, narrow-chested house, prim, formal, and solid, like the century which gave it birth. Lestrade's bulldog features gazed out at us from the front window, and he greeted us warmly when a big constable had opened the door and let us in.
The room into which we were shown was that in which the crime had been committed, but no trace of it now remained, save an ugly, irregular stain upon the carpet. This carpet was a small square drugget in the centre of the room, surrounded by a broad expanse of beautiful, old- fashioned, wood flooring in square blocks, highly polished. Over the fireplace was a magnificent trophy of weapons, one of which had been used on that tragic night.
In the window was a sumptuous writing-desk, and every detail of the apartment, the pictures, the rugs, and the hangings, all pointed to a taste which was luxurious and the verge of effeminacy. No doubt it's just as they say. A part from these snippets of news which I shared with all the readers of the daily press, I knew almost nothing of my old comrade and friend. One evening—I remember that it was the 20th of March, I was returning from having seen a patient for I had dedicated myself to civil practice , when my way led me through Baker-street. He never speaks of her other than under that denomination.
In his eyes she eclipses completely the weaker sex. All violent sentiments, and that one particularly, were contradictory to his cold, methodical, and admirably balanced character.. Holmes is truly the animated observing machine the most perfected that one may encounter; but I do not see my character in the role of a lover. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a scornful jest and a mocking smile. A violent emotion for a nature such as his equated to a grain of sand in an instrument of precision or a fissure on one of his more powerful microscopes. And yet for him there was but one woman in the world, and that woman was the late Irene Adler, of doubtful remembrance.
He was, as ever, particularly attracted by criminal inquiries, and was putting his wonderful faculties of observation in service of these mysterious crimes that the police had renounced to clear up. I knew that he had been called to Odessa in order to study the murder of Trepoff, that he had thrown light on the singular tragedy of the the Atkinson brothers at Trincomalee and, lastly, that he had acquitted himself, with much tact and success, of a delicate mission for the count of the reigning house of Holland.
Sherlock Holmes: Four Investigations [Jeux de société]

I'd really appreciate if you could let me know if the site is helping you as it's taking up quite a lot of my free time and a little encouragement would help. Even a simple 'thank you' would be much appreciated. Tick the box below if you don't mind me publishing your comment alongside the name you gave on this website. Ballistics is used when spent bullets can be recovered, and their calibre measured and matched with a suspected murder weapon, as in The Adventure of the Empty House. Holmes was also very perceptive of the dress and attitude of his clients and suspects, noting style and state of wear of their clothes, any contamination such as clay on boots , their state of mind and physical condition in order to infer their origin and recent history.
Skin marks such as tattoos could reveal much about their history. He applied the same method to personal items such as walking sticks famously in The Hound of the Baskervilles or hats in the case of The Blue Carbuncle , with small details such as medallions, wear and contamination yielding vital indicators of their absent owners. In , the Royal Society of Chemistry bestowed an honorary fellowship of their organisation upon Sherlock Holmes, for his use of forensic science and analytical chemistry in popular literature, making him the only as of fictional character to be thus honoured.
His stories also include several detective story characters, such as the loyal but less intelligent assistant, a role for which Dr Watson has become the archetype. The investigating detective became a popular genre with many authors such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers after the demise of Holmes, with characters such as Hercule Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey. Forensic methods became less important than the psychology of the criminal, despite the strong growth in forensics in use by the police in the early 20th century. Sherlock Holmes has occasionally been used in the scientific literature.
John Radford speculates on his intelligence. Using Conan Doyle's stories as data, Radford applies three different methods to estimate Sherlock Holmes's IQ, and concludes that his intelligence was very high indeed, estimated at approximately points. Snyder examines Holmes's methods in the light of the science and the criminology of the mid to late 19th century.
Kempster compares neurologists' skills with those displayed by Holmes. Finally, Didierjean and Gobet reviewed the literature on the psychology of expertise by taking as model a fictional expert: Sherlock Holmes. They highlighted aspects of Doyle's books that are in line with what is currently known about expertise, aspects that are implausible, and aspects that suggest further research. The fifty-six short stories and four novels written by Conan Doyle are termed the " canon" by Sherlock Holmes fans. Early scholars of the canon included Ronald Knox in Britain and Christopher Morley in New York, the latter having founded the Baker Street Irregulars, the first society devoted exclusively to the canon of Holmes, in Author Laurie R.
Certain details in "The Gloria Scott" Adventure indicate Holmes finished his second and final year at university in either or Watson's own account of his wounding in the Second Afghan War and subsequent return to England in A Study in Scarlet place his moving in with Holmes in either early or Together, these suggest Holmes left university in ; if he began university at the age of 17, his birth year would likely be The author Dorothy L. Sayers suggested that, given details in two of the Adventures, Holmes must have been at Cambridge rather than Oxford and that "of all the Cambridge colleges, Sidney Sussex College perhaps offered the greatest number of advantages to a man in Holmes's position and, in default of more exact information, we may tentatively place him there".
Holmes's emotional state and mental health have been a topic of analysis for decades. At their first meeting in A Study in Scarlet , the detective warns Watson that he gets "in the dumps at times" and doesn't open his "mouth for days on end". Many readers and literary experts have suggested Holmes showed signs of manic depression, with moments of intense enthusiasm coupled with instances of indolent self-absorption.
Other modern readers have speculated that Holmes may have Asperger's syndrome based on his intense attention to details, lack of interest in interpersonal relationships and tendency to speak in long monologues. The detective's isolation and near-gynophobic distrust of women is said to suggest the desire to escape; Holmes "biographer" William Baring-Gould and others, including Nicholas Meyer, author of the Seven Percent Solution , have implied a severe family trauma i. Writers have produced many pop culture references to Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle, or characters from the stories in homage, to a greater or lesser degree.
Some have been overt, introducing Holmes as a character in a new setting, or a more subtle allusion, such as making a logical character live in an apartment at number B. One well-known example of this is the character Gregory House on the show House M. D , whose name and apartment number are both references to Holmes.
Often the simplest reference a writer can make is to portray anybody who does some kind of detective work in a deerstalker and Inverness cape. However, throughout the entire novel series, Holmes is never explicitly described as wearing a "deerstalker hat". Holmes dons "his ear-flapped travelling cap" in " The Adventure of Silver Blaze".
Sidney Paget first drew Holmes wearing the deerstalker cap and Inverness cape in " The Boscombe Valley Mystery" and subsequently in several other stories. A third major reference is the oft-quoted catchphrase: "Elementary, my dear Watson", which is never actually uttered by Holmes in any of the sixty Holmes stories written by Conan Doyle. In the stories, Holmes often remarks that his logical conclusions are "elementary", in that he considers them to be simple and obvious. He also, on occasion, refers to Dr. Watson as "my dear Watson".
The two fragments, however, never appear together. One of the closest examples to this phrase appears in " The Adventure of the Crooked Man", when Holmes explains a deduction: " 'Excellent! The first known use of this phrase was in the novel, Psmith, Journalist , by P. It also appears at the very end of the film, The Return of Sherlock Holmes , the first Sherlock Holmes sound film. William Gillette, who played Holmes on stage and radio, had previously used the similar phrase, Oh, this is elementary, my dear fellow.
The phrase might owe its household familiarity to its use in Edith Meiser's scripts for The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes radio series, broadcast from to Holmes aficionados refer to the period from to —the time between Holmes's disappearance and presumed death in " The Final Problem" and his reappearance in " The Adventure of the Empty House"—as the "Great Hiatus". It is notable, though, that one later story " The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" is described as taking place in Conan Doyle wrote the first set of stories over the course of a decade.
Wanting to devote more time to his historical novels, he killed off Holmes in "The Final Problem", which appeared in print in After resisting public pressure for eight years, the author wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles , which appeared in , implicitly setting it before Holmes's "death" some theorise that it actually took place after "The Return" but with Watson planting clues to an earlier date.
In his memoirs, Conan Doyle quotes a reader, who judged the later stories inferior to the earlier ones, to the effect that when Holmes went over the Reichenbach Falls, he may not have been killed, but was never quite the same man. This is contradicted in part by Watson's evaluation in "The Adventure of Black Peter" that "I have never known my friend to be in better form, both mental and physical, than in the year '95", which would have been four years after the fall over Reichenbach Falls. Both are still active though the Sherlock Holmes Society was dissolved in to be resuscitated only in The London-based society is one of many worldwide who arrange visits to the scenes of the Sherlock Holmes adventures, such as the Reichenbach Falls in the Swiss Alps.
The two initial societies founded in were followed by many more Holmesians circles, first of all in America where they are called "scion societies"—offshoots—of the Baker Street Irregulars , then in England and Denmark. Nowadays, there are Sherlockian societies in many countries, such as Australia, India and Japan.
During the Festival of Britain, Sherlock Holmes's sitting-room was reconstructed as the masterpiece of a Sherlock Holmes Exhibition, displaying a unique collection of original material. Both exhibitions, each including its own Baker Street Sitting-Room reconstruction, are still open to the public. In , the Sherlock Holmes Museum opened in Baker Street London and the following year in Meiringen, Switzerland another museum opened; naturally, they include less historical material about Conan Doyle than about Sherlock Holmes himself. A private collection of Conan Doyle is also housed in the Portsmouth City Museum which has a permanent exhibit, due to his importance in the city where he lived and worked for many years.
The London Metropolitan Railway named one of its 20 electric locomotives deployed in the s after Sherlock Holmes. He was the only fictional character so honored, alongside fellow eminent Britons such as Lord Byron , Benjamin Disraeli , and Florence Nightingale. The enduring popularity of Sherlock Holmes has led to hundreds of works based on the character — both adaptations into other media and original stories. The copyright in all of Conan Doyle's works expired in the United Kingdom in and are public domain there. All works published in the United States prior to are in the public domain; this includes all Sherlock Holmes stories with the exception of some of the stories contained within The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes.
For works published after but before , if the copyright was registered, its term lasts for 95 years. On February 14, , noted Holmes scholar Leslie S. Klinger filed a declaratory judgment suit against the Conan Doyle estate in the Northern District of Illinois, asking that the court acknowledge that the characters of Holmes and Watson are in the public domain, no longer protected by copyright in the U. The Guinness World Records has consistently listed Sherlock Holmes as the "most portrayed movie character" with more than 70 actors playing the part in over films.
Holmes's first screen appearance was in the Mutoscope film Sherlock Holmes Baffled in , albeit in a barely recognisable form. By , Harry Arthur Saintsbury had played Holmes on stage more than a thousand times. This play formed the basis for Gillette's motion picture, Sherlock Holmes. Forty-five short films and two feature length films were produced featuring Eille Norwood in the role of Holmes and Hubert Willis cast as Dr Watson with the exception of the final film, The Sign of Four , where Willis was replaced with Arthur Cullin. It starred Clive Brook as Sherlock Holmes.
A silent version of the film was also produced to accommodate theaters which did not feature sound.
The 20th Century Fox Hound of the Baskervilles contains an unusually direct reference to Holmes's drug use in the last line of the film, "Watson, the needle". The storylines deviated from the books of Conan Doyle, changing characters and other details. He would return to the role several times in both film and television performances. Peter Sallis portrayed Dr. The film was heavily edited after its release and parts of it are now lost. Watson's great-granddaughter Jane Watson, a Boston private eye, who stumbles upon Sherlock Holmes's played by Michael Pennington body in frozen suspension and restores the Victorian sleuth to life in the s.
The film was intended as a pilot for a TV series which never materialised. Holmes played by Anthony Higgins froze himself in the hopes that crimes in the future would be less dull. He discovers that consulting detectives have been replaced by the police department's forensic science lab and that the Moriarty family are still the Napoleons of crime. Jeremy Brett is considered by critic Julian Wolfreys to be the definitive Holmes, having played the role in four series of Sherlock Holmes , created by John Hawkesworth for Britain's Granada Television, from through to , as well as depicting Holmes on stage.
The adaption was written by Nicholas Meyer from his book of the same name, and directed by Herbert Ross. Between and , Soviet television broadcast a series of five made-for-TV films in a total of eleven parts, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr.

In addition to the Sherlock Holmes corpus, Conan Doyle's " The Lost Special" features an unnamed "amateur reasoner" clearly intended to be identified as Holmes by his readers. His explanation for a baffling disappearance, argued in Holmes's characteristic style, turns out to be quite wrong—evidently Conan Doyle was not above poking fun at his own hero.
He also wrote other material, especially plays, featuring Holmes. Starting in , Sherlock Holmes was featured in a series of German booklets. Among the writers was Theo van Blankensee. Watson had been replaced by a 19 year old assistant from the street, among his Baker Street Irregulars , with the name Harry Taxon, and Mrs. Hudson had been replaced by one Mrs. From number 10 the series changed its name to "Aus den Geheimakten des Welt-Detektivs".
Sherlock Holmes's abilities as both a good fighter and an excellent logician has been a boon to other authors who have lifted his name, or details of his exploits, for their plots. These range from Holmes as a cocaine addict, whose drug-fuelled fantasies lead him to cast an innocent Professor Moriarty as a super villain The Seven-Per-Cent Solution , to science-fiction plots involving him being re-animated after death to fight crime in the future Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century.
Some authors have supplied stories to fit the tantalising references in the canon to unpublished cases e. Others have used different characters from the stories as their own detective, e. Hodel and Sean M. Laurie R. Her Holmes is semi retired in Sussex, where he is literally stumbled over by a teenage American girl. Recognising a kindred spirit, he gradually trains her as his apprentice and subsequently marries her. As of the series includes twelve novels and a novella tie-in with a book from King's present-time Kate Martinelli series, The Art of Detection.
The first book, Good Night, Mr. Holmes , retells that tale from Irene's point of view. The series is narrated by Adler's companion, Penelope Huxleigh, in a role similar to that of Dr. The film They Might Be Giants is a romantic comedy based on the play of the same name both written by James Goldman in which the character Justin Playfair, played by George C.
Scott, is convinced he is Sherlock Holmes, and manages to convince many others of same, including the psychiatrist Dr. Watson, played by Joanne Woodward, who is assigned to evaluate him so he can be committed to a mental institution. The film Young Sherlock Holmes explores adventures of Holmes and Watson as boarding school pupils. In the s Ben Kingsley played Dr. Watson in Without a Clue.

In this film, the comic premise is that Dr. Watson is actually a brilliant detective, and that he has hired an actor, Sherlock Holmes Michael Caine , to take credit for the cases that Watson has been writing about, to draw attention away from himself. The powerful criminal Dr. Moriarty is said to know that Sherlock Holmes has no abilities as a detective whatsoever. The Japanese anime series Sherlock Hound adapted the Holmes stories for children and had the characters portrayed as anthropomorphic dogs.
The series was co-directed by Hayao Miyazaki, who later went on to direct the Oscar winning film Spirited Away. The story noticeably departs from the style and backstory of the canon and D'Arcy's portrayal of Holmes is slightly different from prior incarnations of the character, psychologically disturbed, an absinthe addicted, a heavy drinker and a ladies' man.
