"Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent
instantly recognizes genius." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes, Valley of
Sherlock Holmes is an iconic British sleuth created by Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle. Holmes and his partner, Dr. John Watson, were first seen solving crimes in
London in 1887. Doyle's works have been adapted countless times over the years and new
versions of the classics are still being released almost every year in the form of movies,
TV shows, books and more.
Sherlock's high intelligence and over-observant nature, combined
with his flaws (blatant disregard for authority, rudeness and even drug abuse), make
his almost narcissistic character an interesting and fascinating one.
