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.

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.

Watson liked reading sea-stories. A detailed study would probably reveal he had a keen interest in current affairs as well. Writing, of course!
He originally died at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland during a fight with his arch-enemy Moriarty. However Conan Doyle had to pretend that Holmes had not actually died at all because of the adverse reaction from his readers.
He didn't die - in fact he never even lived! He was a fictional character invented by Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle, the author of the detective novels featuring Holmes. He didn't die - in fact he never even lived! He was a fictional character invented by Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle, the author of the detec…tive novels featuring Holmes. THE AUTHOR of the Sherlock Holmes book series was Conan Doyle. He died in 1930. According to Wikipedia: '...he killed off Holmes in "The Final Problem", which appeared in print in 1893. After resisting public pressure for eight years, the author wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles , which appeared in 1901, implicitly setting it before Holmes' "death" (some theorise that it actually took place after "The Return" but with Watson planting clues to an earlier date). The public, while pleased with the story, was not satisfied with a posthumous Holmes, and so Conan Doyle resuscitated Holmes two years later. Many have speculated on his motives for bringing Holmes back to life, notably writer-director Nicholas Meyer, who wrote an essay on the subject in the 1970s, but the actual reasons are not known, other than the obvious: Publishers offered to pay generously. For whatever reason, Conan Doyle continued to write Holmes stories for a quarter-century longer. Some writers have come up with alternate explanations for the hiatus. In Meyer's novel The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, the Hiatus is depicted as a secret sabbatical following Holmes' treatment for cocaine addiction at the hands of Sigmund Freud, and presents Holmes making the light-hearted suggestion that Watson write a fictitious account claiming he'd been killed by Moriarty, saying of the public: "They'll never believe you in any case." In his memoirs, Conan Doyle quotes a reader, who judged the later stories inferior to the earlier ones, to the effect that when Holmes went over the Reichenbach Falls, he may not have been killed, but he was never quite the same man after.

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. ( Full Answer )

Sherlock Holmes has quite a few interests apart from the obvious mystery solving. He plays the violin, he enjoys smoking a pipe (and has a compendious knowledge of different types of tobacco ash), He likes to perform chemical experiments, he is a keen boxer and fencer, he took up the beekeeping when… he retired, and has always had an interest in many topics including the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus, miracle plays, mediaeval pottery, Stradivarius, violins, the Buddhism of Ceylon, and the warships of the future. He kept a collection of agony column clippings and -- what he called -- an index of biographies, about anyone and everyone of note, he must have been a voracious reader to be so well versed in the quotes and languages he used on several occasions.

Well if you want an honest answer it's going to have to be a spoiler. So if you don't want a spoiler don't read any farther... (The murderer, Stapleton, had a dog which he pretended was a ghostly dog from an old fairytale concerning the Baskerville family. Sherlock shot it in the head at the climax …of the story and killed it instantly.) Dr. Mortimer's spaniel also dies. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )

Sherlock Holmes was a skilled violinist and was learned in the Oriental defense art of baritsu, which is actually a fictional martial art but related to judo, I believe. He was interested in chemistry, and frequently dabbled with poisons and acids and anything he needed to fulfill experiments. Accor…ding to Dr. Watson, he was an excellent singlestick player (one-handed fencing stick), boxer, and swordsman. He also spoke French quite a lot in his sentences, so odds are he was able to speak it fluently. Then there is the obvious interest in crime and sensational happenings. ( Full Answer )

"The final Problem" was the name of the book in which Sherlock Holmes was written to die, however, readers insisted he be brought back, and to great surprise he was!
In the books and most movies, Prof. Moriarty (his arch nemesis) and Holmes fall off the Reichenbach Falls. Sherlock survives, but Moriarty dies. The only reason Conan Doyle killed him off was because he grew tired of the character and the series, and it was distracting him from other projects. He br…ought back Sherlock Holmes because fans of Holmes got angry and forced Conan Doyle to bring him back. In the BBC modern-day adaptation of Sherlock, Moriarty tells Sherlock that he will kill Sherlock's friends is Sherlock does not kill himself. This exchange occurs on top of St. Bartholomew's Hospital. Moriarty shoots himself in the head, and then Sherlock jumps to his apparent death. At the very end of the episode, it is shown that Sherlock is still alive. ( Full Answer )
It is in the short storyÂ¨"The Final Problem," which can be foundin the book 'The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.'
Sherlock Holmes didn't actually die in the Doyle stories. Although Doyle tried to kill him off once. Doyle got tired of writing about Holmes, and wanted to move on to other things. So he decided to kill Holmes, once and for all. In the story THE FINAL PROBLEM, Doyle wrote that Holmes plunged over th…e Reichenbach Falls in a death-grip struggle with his arch enemy Moriarity, and they both died together. The world exploded in protests and recriminations. The day after the story was printed, Englishmen wore black armbands on their way to work, as if a relative had died. Doyle received so many pleas, and so much hatemail, and so many escalating offers of pay to resurrect Holmes, that he finally gave in. About two years after Holmes' "death", Doyle wrote a new story: to explain that Holmes really hadn't died at all, and where he'd been all that time. The story that brought Holmes back was THE EMPTY HOUSE. Doyle gave up trying kill Holmes. He finally just retired him to raise bees in Sussex. ( Full Answer )

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.

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. ( Full Answer )

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.

Well, his hobbies included playing the violin, sword fighting, singlestick and boxing along with a mixture of some martial arts. In later times he became a beekeeper. That was definitely surprising to me!
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character and cannot be anyone's ancestor except another fictional character.
He killed off Sherlock Holmes for several reasons. 1) He got fed up with writing him. The books were immensely popular in England when he wrote them, and were clammering for more. 2) He wanted the public (and himself) to focus on his other stories. 3) He hated writing the Sherlock Holmes stories bec…ause they were difficult to write. That's why he killed him off, though I couldn't tell you why he brought him back, probably because he failed at getting the public to pay attention to his other stories. Hope it helped!

Sherlock Holmes never died in the books, he just retired to Bee Keeping. And Sherlock Holmes was never a real person so he can't die in real life.
no, but he has came close. Answer: The novelist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle grew tired of writing the Holmes stories (thinking that he should write more "meaningful" material) and decided to kill him off so he could stop. In The Final Problem (1891), Conan Doyle has Holmes and his archenemy Profes…sor Moriarty fight on a ledge above the Reichenbach falls. During the fight both tumble over the precipice, presumably to their deaths. Unfortunately for Doyle but luckily for Holmes, Doyle didn't reckon on public opinion. The outcry forced Doyle to restart the series in 1903. To do this he claimed that Holmes had managed to grab a tuft of grass during the fall into the "dreadful cauldron" and so had lived to solve more cases. ( Full Answer )
It is made to appear as though she died, however it is not directly confirmed. After all, if she did, there certainly wasn't much fuss over the death of a major character. It said she exhibited signs of a rare form of tuberculosis from the poisoning, not that it killed her.
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.
The great detective faked his death at Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland, but Conan Doyle never did write about where Holmes died later in life.
Sherlock Holmes quickly tosses the ashes from his pipe into Professer James Moriarty's face, grabs him, then jumps off his brother's castle taking Moriarty with him. However Holmes survives and puts on one of his funny looking disguises and waits for Watson to take the "bait" and types a question …mark after the end . No he didn't die, but, for Moriarty, it remains a mystery to me. ( Full Answer )
Sherlock Holmes is the fictional creation of Arthur Conan Doyle. He first appeared in ' A Study in Scarlet' in 1887, his last stories appear in 'The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes' published between 1921 and 1927. The story ' His Last Bow' is set in 1914 just before the outbreak of the war, Holmes c…atches German spies. This is the last Holmes story (not the last written, but the one which tells of his last case), He has by this time retired to a small farm in Sussex to keep bees. The Story 'The Final Problem' set in 1891 and published 1893 sees Holmes and Moriarty fall over a waterfall in Switzerland. Holmes is presumed dead, but it turns out survived the last fight and went into hiding to enable him to catch the rest of Moriarty's gang. Holmes returns to London, and Watson in 'The Adventure of the Empty House' set in 1894, but published in 1905. Holmes faked his own death on Monday 4 May 1891 to allow him to work undercover.

Homes is a fictional character and was killed off in one story. In that case it was in Switzerland and he disappeared from public view for several years.
No, Sherlock Holmes faked his own death, and then he was brought back in an additional thirty-two short stories and two novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In my opinion, Sherlock died of old age even though he was a beekeeper in retirement.
