Of course, when you see the phrase “Elementary, my dear Watson” you think of Sherlock Holmes. But…Holmes never uttered this phrased. It’s one of the great misquotes in literary history, and it’s just one of many we explored recently when we welcomed three ‘Sherlockians‘, all part of the group The Hounds of the Baskerville.
Dr. Sherlock Holmes is still alive and still working. Surely his body must have slowed a bit as he’s over 160 years old, but his mind is still as sharp as ever. Donald Terras, Janice Weiner and Al Shaw filled us in on the legacy and long life of the world’s greatest detectives, revisit some classic cases, and review many of the classic films and spinoff television shows based upon Holmes and the Doyle canon.
