    Yes, Sherlock Holmes, wherever you are reading this (because I believe this blog is worthy reading material for the most vain of detectives)HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Though we each have our preferred portrayals of you by various actors, our first allegiance is to you, the genius creation of Conan Doyle!

    1. Well put, James. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is as important to the mystery genre, just as JRR Tolkien is to the fantasy genre!

  5. Happy Birthday to a marvelous and enduring character.

    I don't always agree with adaptations for him, but that's why the stories are timeless. I can always go back and read Doyle, and the tales are as fresh as if they were just written.

    1. Agree with you about the timeless nature of the Canon. I do not believe it is possible to reproduce the same magic onscreen.

      Sherlock Holmes and Watson will always endure, thanks to the genius of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
