In 'The Musgrave Ritual,' Holmes says, "When I first came up toLondon I had rooms in Montague Street," and in 'The Adventure ofthe Greek Interpreter,' Holmes said, "My ancestors were countrysquires." It seems, from these statements, very likely that Holmescame from one of the provinces of England ou…tside of London.
A fictional character created by the famous writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes is a consulting detective/sleuth who solves cases simply with the power of observation and deduction. The reason people are drawn to this particular character is probably because he was the unlikely detective,… a cocaine addicted man with an obsession for studying crime.
Sherlock Holmes didn't take a fancy to women though he was engaged to Charles Augustus Milverton's maid, and, then, only to aid in solving the case. He criticizes women's intellect until he has an encounter with Irene Adler -- the only woman to beat Holmes -- whom he referred to as " The Woman". He …was certainly respectful of Irene Adler's abilities and admired her, but they never married. Dr. Watson had hoped that Holmes would take a liking to Violet Hunter in 'The Copper Beeches,' but he did not. Holmes stated that he felt involvement with a woman would awaken the passions -- a bad thing in upper crust Victorian England's thought, and especially in Holmes' philosophy. Holmes preferred a life of pure intellect, devoid of emotion. Holmes retired to the country and raised bees as a hobby. In many of the alternate-universe (spin-off) Holmes stories written by other authors, Holmes marries or has a love affair. One of the better series which marries Holmes off is a mystery series by Laurie King, which begins with the book The Beekeeper's Apprentice.

The fictional Sherlock Holmes was the world's first Consulting Detective (self-avowed).
No, in the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The movies where Basil Rathbone plays Holmes, Holmes does not fight, but assists Scotland Yard and Washington D.C. in their war efforts against the Nazis. The case 'His Last Bow' takes place during World War 1. Sherlock Holmes would have been about 85 …when World War 2 started.
Sherlock Holmes is about the adventures of an English Private Detective.

There are only two stories indicating there is a telephone at 221b Baker Street with no mention of a phone number. In 'The Adventure of the Three Garridebs' Holmes calls Nathan Garrideb to setup an interview at Garrideb's home. In 'The Adventure of the Retired Colourman' Holmes says, "Thanks t…o the telephone and the help of the Yard, I can usually get my essentials without leaving this room." Both of these stories are late in Holmes' career, so it is likely the phone was a late addition. NOTE: If you are referring to the 'Sherlock' BBC TV series, your question is in the wrong category.
At the beginning of 'The Sign of Four,' Watson asks, 'Which is it today morphine or cocaine?' though we are not told of any morphine use until 'The Adventure of the Illustrious Client' after Holmes is involved in a scuffle. Holmes' attending physician, Sir Leslie Oakshott, tells Watson when he arriv…es: "Two lacerated scalp wounds and some considerable bruises. Several stitches have been necessary. Morphine has been injected and quiet is essential, but an interview of a few minutes would not be absolutely forbidden." These are the only two references in the stories.
He never said "Elementary, my dear Watson," although he simply said "Elementary" a couple times.
In the short story 'His Last Bow,' Holmes and Watson are spies forthe British government at the beginning of WW I though Holmes doesnot seem to understand the value of secrecy in the spy community.
It already is!
He was a cocaine addict, [and occasionally took morphine] he smoked, and often was untidy and (both purposely and non-purposely) tended to neglect his health when on a case. He also knew very little about things that did not relate to crime.
The story starts when a man drops dead in the moors. A beggar triesto rob him. Holmes is told of an almost identical murder. Theyfollow Mortimor and Henry Baskerville out so that nothing happensto him. Holmes and Watson find a man pointing a gun in a nearby caband warn Henry. Watson and Henry later …go out to the moors whenthey see a butler that looks like the gunman in the cab. He has acandle and is waving it about. Watson asks him of his actions. Thebutler disappears. They see a distant light that looks like acandle. They go out to the moors and find a lit candle in a stonecave. The beggar in the beginning of the story is spying on them.
Robert Downey JR. played Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law played Dr. John Watson.
You can get the ability of thrill and adventure and you can also get the ability to put pieces together to a mystery. :}
No, Sherlock Holmes was not a real person.
"Young Sherlock Holmes" (1985). Stars Nicholas Rowe as Sherlock Holmes, Alan Cox as John Watson.
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character and cannot be anyone's ancestor except another fictional character.
Impossible, because Sherlock Holmes wasn't a real person.
In the trailer, it shows a casket being lowered into a grave marked Sherlock Holmes: 18 something something to 1888. So it's safe to assume that he truly does die. But they could also do with this what Conan Doyle did after The Final Problem.
Sherlock Holmes 3
