To answer your question, the date generally accepted by scholars as the date that Holmes supposedly plunged into the Reichenbach Falls is: Monday, 4th May 1891. His death of old age or some other cause later in his life is not recorded. ------ Sherlock Holmes was not a real person but a chara…cter created by writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This fiction hero "died" in the story "The Adventure of the Final Problem" published in 1893 in The Strand Magazine and then in "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" People were so concerned that Conan Doyle had to bring the great detective back. In 1901 Sherlock Holmes reappeared in "The Hound of the Baskervilles". The story supposedly happened before Holmes' "death" at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland. Holmes returned officially from the dead in the 1903 story "The Empty House", which is the first story in the book "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes stories until 1927 though the chronology of Holmes' adventures ends with "His Last Bow", at the beginning of World War I in 1914. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in 1930. (MORE)
Sherlock Holmes usually wore a collared shirt, a hat that looked some what like a top hat. Deerstalker hat, small top hat, or bowler hat, a hand woven tie, frock coat, trousers, Wellington dress shoes or boots, and, being the gentleman that he was, often seen with a cane or walking stick. The usual …standard attire of the Victorian Londoner. Evening wear, top hats, dressing gowns, etc. etc. Sherlock Holmes is most famous for his Inverness (the cape-like coat he wore) and his deerstalker (the hat). The Deerstalker cap and Inverness cape are travelling clothes, and, as such, were only depicted by Sidney Paget when Holmes was travelling. They have since been given disproportional importance by later actors. Please see a limited selection of Sidney Paget drawings linked below. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)

Sherlock loved to solve interesting cases, to make chemistry experiments and to play the violin. He did make money out of solving cases.
Sherlock Holmes' first case was 'The Gloria Scott' published in1893, but the first published Sherlock Holmes story was the novel,'A Study in Scarlet' (1887) which, coincidentally, was his firstcase where he was accompanied by Watson.
I'm not sure exactly when, but I know he retired to Sussex and lived as a beekeeper with no one for company except for his bees and his books. Very sad, I know. But at least he didn't die!! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle veiled his famous character Sherlock Holmes by stating that he has retired and is li…ving somewhere in Sussex engaged in bee-keeping, agricultural cultivation and research. "My villa is situated upon the southern slope of the Downs, commanding a great view of the Channel." -- Sherlock Holmes, 'The Adventure of the Lion's Mane' It is generally accepted as sometime in late 1903 or early 1904 when Holmes retired, and he would have been about 50 years old (based on other speculations). (MORE)
Of course! He was a very lean and agile man with lots of strength and endurance. Considering his skills in fencing, it was not at all anything difficult for him to jump across and over walls or from parapets and sunshades to ground. In The Hound Of The Baskervilles, how he crosses and recrosses …the deadly, sucking, oozing marsh at the dead of night alone is significant of his martial, mental and physical capabilities. However it should be noted that as a detective of shrewd observation, logic, deduction and diagnosis, he would not jump to conclusions. (MORE)
It appeared that his only friend was really Dr. Watson. He had a very large set of acquiantances from which he drew specialized knowledge and services. Harold Stackhurst (The Adventure of the Lion's Mane) was an acquaintance later in life. His brother Mycroft could be considered a friend. In 'The… Gloria Scott' Holmes speaks of a friendship with Victor Trevor in college. In 'The Musgrave Ritual' Holmes speaks of an acquaintance with Reginald Musgrave in college. I am certain there were others who Watson never saw fit to mention. (MORE)
As an avid reader of the series myself and a great obsessor of the Victorian era, I would believe Sherlock Holmes to be dressed in a shirt, plain, wrinkled, with a dark waistcoat (vest) and matching jacket. His black pants would be held up by suspenders while his shoes would be polished to perfectio…n. I assume his hair would be set to the requrement of dress (fancy or everyday). I hope this is helpful to you! pipe, deerstalker hat, magnifying glass, cape, jacket Please check the link below for a sampling of drawings from The Strand Magazine. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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.
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. (MORE)
I think that it depends on whether or not you believe that Sherlock Holmes was ever alive, or if he were simply a fictional character. If you are a Sherlockian, and believe that he was real, then I figure that he is probably dead by now, simply because he was 'supposedly' born January 6, 1854. Which… at this point in time, would make him about 156 years old. It is possible, (I guess) that he could have lived that long, but I highly doubt it. As for, if you believe that he was fictional, well.... he technically was never alive to begin with. Unless you are speaking of his life through the world of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In that case, I'm not exactly sure because it is claimed that he had died once at a waterfall, and later revealed himself to be alive the entire time. So, he may very well have died later on and has simply not 'come back to life' again. (MORE)
"Silver Blaze" is a short story where Sherlock and Watson journey to the countryside to attempt to solve the death of a trainer and the disappearance of a racehorse. The horse's name is Silver Blaze.
No, Sherlock Holmes was not with the police. He was a private consulting detective. He cooperated with the police when it served his purpose..
'The Naval Treaty,' in 'The Adventure of the Empty House' there is a description of Holmes' fight with Moriarty three years earlier, 'The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist,' and 'The Adventure of the Illustrious Client.'
You can get the ability of thrill and adventure and you can also get the ability to put pieces together to a mystery. :}
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle the author did kill off Sherlock In the story, 'The Final Problem' But everyone was mad and unhappy with him, even Queen Victoria said she was mad at him killing him off, and then a few years later, he had another idea for a story and continued writing as if he never died.
i think the final problem, as it builds up a lot of tension In 1927 'The Strand Magazine' ran a contest to see who could most closely guess the author's dozen favourite Sherlock Holmes stories from the first 44 short stories as a promotion for the release of 'The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes.' Her…e is Conan Doyle's list: 1. "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" 2. "The Redheaded League" 3. "The Adventure of the Dancing Men" 4. "The Final Problem" 5. "A Scandal in Bohemia" 6.

Practice deductive reasoning and make a habit of looking at thesmall, minor details. Also, pick up only trivia and skills thatwould be useful to you and your work. Everything else isunimportant and not worth keeping in mind. That would be a start.Most importantly, do not jump to conclusions before y…ou have foundall you need to know and weeded out everything irrelevant. Answer: In addition to the above and depending on hw much you want to belike Holmes there are other attributes you should consider. Learn unusual skills . disguise and acting to blend into crowds . stick and cane fighting (Bartitsu) . memorize vast amounts of trivial knowledge . write tretises on arcane subjects (pipe tobacco ash etc.) On the negative side: . develop a cocaine habit . be uncomfortable with women . live in a messy apartment . play violin badly . smoke a Meerschaum pipe . discharge your guns in the house . treat your friends badly These negative habits will not make you smart, like Holmes is, butthey will make you seem like him to your friends.

As my name makes apparent, I am a great fan of Robert DOwney Jr as am I his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. I have heard the rumours of a sequel with none being confirmed as of yet, though it has been brought up so many times, I think it shall have one.
We never really hear the term crazy, it is often pointed out that Holmes is very eccentric. These eccentricities are almost always attributed in one way or another to his genius mind and his inability to quiet his thoughts. Often Holmes's actions come into question, leaving Watson and the reader to …wonder if Sherlock has finally gone over the edge. Without fail the situation which left us wondering about his sanity inevitably turns out to be nothing less than a stroke of genius. When Holmes explains events, he restores our faith in his sanity. This is of course just my opinion; but, I have read most things by and about him and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. (MORE)

Well, Holmes often refers to his detecting techniques as the Science of Deduction. He also like chemistry.
The stories are set in the late 1800's. There is a TV series on the BBC that is set in the present.
I think the closest thing to a friend Sherlock has ever had is Watson, though he does have a romantic interest in Irene Addler in the film.
Considering he was born and raised in Great Britain, I don't know how he couldn't have an accent.

Guy Ritchie is the director of the new one staring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.
Sherlock Holmes was not the type to believe in the supernatural so his faith in anything would not be unquestioning. There is a line in The Adventure of the Gloria Scott where, while he is telling a story about his friend Victor Trevor, Holmes said he had been on his way to chapel when Trevor's dog …bit his ankle. Therefore, one can assume he was of a Christian background of some sort. One could also make an argument that he was more of an athiest but had to study religious things in case of a case involving religion. There have been stories, though, of him being of other religions but those are fan created. (MORE)
In the Basil Rathbone movies, he said: "Elementary, my dear Watson." He said many things in the books. He tended to mutter to himself while searching a crime scene. He usually twitted Watson that "You see but you do not observe". He complained that he must have information to work on "Data! Da…ta! Data! I can't build bricks without clay." he once said. His pride was that he based his deductions on observational clues. One of his fans' favourite quotes is "Come, Watson! Come! The game is afoot." which is a hunter's phrase meaning "the quarry is stirring from its den" and a paraphrase of Shakespeare. He said it only once; but it's often quoted. He almost always complained that the police did not keep the crime scene intact. Always stamping about with their muddy boots. When a police officer had done something right according to Holmes' standards, Holmes is invariably surprised. (MORE)
