Editorial Policy

Sherlock Holmes is probably the worlds greatest detective, famed for his powers of observation and deduction. The stories have a good rhythm, the characters of Holmes and Watson are well developed, though now appear stereotypical through their familarity.

I'm a particular fan of the CliveMerrison and MichaelWilliams BBC radio versions. They performed the whole canon.

Sherlock Holmes Sitting Room

In October 2004, I visited the Sherlock Holmes pub in Northumberland Street, London, which is full of Sherlockian memorabilia including a re-creation of Sherlock Holmes' sitting room. Visible features include the bust of Holmes with a gun shot, the papers on the front table are from Baskerville Hall, and some of the code from the Adventure of the Dancing Men is visible on the left.

The Sherlock Holmes pub used to be the Northumberland Hotel, which is featured in The Hound of the Baskervilles

In LA, Chuck Kovacic has build a replica of Holmes's sitting room - http://www.221bbakerstreetla.com/ , while Russ Stutler has drawn a plan of Holmes' apartment - http://www.stutler.cc/other/misc/baker_street.html
