Sample text

A man by the name of George Edalji was in prison for mutilating animals and sending threatening messages. However, Doyle proved that he was physically incapable of committing the crimes, and also showed that they had continued whilst Edalji had been in jail! A discrepancy in the stories is that Watson’s bullet-wound moves from his shoulder to his leg after it is introduced! And Finally...

Arthur was initially friends with escapologist Harry Houdini. However the friendship soured after Conan Doyle insisted Houdini had magical powers. This was even after he had demonstrated to him that all his feats had real-world explanations. Doyle twice ran for a seat in parliament. He failed both times. We must not forget that Arthur Conan Doyle was a doctor first and an author second. He decided to specialize in ophthalmology, and set up an eye clinic in London. Not one patient ever visited the clinic.

Watson are introduced to each other in the stories by a mutual acquaintance named Stamford. Before settling on the name ‘Sherlock Holmes’, Arthur Conan Doyle went through a number of other choices, including ‘Sherrinford Holmes’ and ‘Sheridan Hope’. Despite being considered Holmes’s most famous nemesis, Professor Moriarty only appears in two stories. Sherlock is said to have had one single love in his life - Irene Adler. As the only person to have outfoxed him, most critics believe the love comes from an admiration of intelligence and not from a sexual attraction.
