Biography: Sherlock Holmes - The Great Detective

Despite the fact that he never even existed, Sherlock Holmes embodies the very essence of Victorian-era London. Since he was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the 1880s, Holmes has been the subject of countless films, books, and biographies. It's a testament to Doyle's talents as an author that the public should take such a shine to the character and now, fans of mystery fiction can get to know their favorite detective better than ever before. In addition to examining the detective's brilliant inductive methods, his many personality quirks, and his relationship with his indispensible assistant Watson, this revealing documentary also offers a look at author Doyle's life, and his unique role as the grandfather of contemporary crime fiction.
