Sherlock Holmes’ appeal must be elementary

Sunday’s column is about Sherlock Holmes, the world’s greatest consulting detective. I recently finished reading all the original stories and thought I’d tell you about them, and him. The photo above was shot outside the Baker Street stop of the London Underground on my vacation last year.

    I am also a Sherlock Holmes fan, and I enjoy most of the movies and TV shows. I am a particular fan of the recent BBC series – which unfortunately has only produced six 90 minute episodes, with 3 more promised. I was suspicious that the stories could be transferred to present time, but the do an outstanding job. I highly recommend it. An interesting note – Dr. Watson is played by Martin Freeman – aka Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit.

      That is interesting. A lot of smart people really like “Sherlock,” and I’d probably be among them if I give it a chance.
