World-renowned detective. The most famous film character. Mystery-solving icon. Who are we talking about? It’s Sherlock Holmes! That would be the answer for any self-respecting amateur detective.

Sherlock Holmes is the ultimate detective archetype. He has been a hero for millions of mystery fans since his creation over 100 years ago. Everyone can agree that Sherlock Holmes is more than he deserves.

My dear Watson, it is elementary!

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the Scottish author of Sherlock Holmes stories, stated that the detective character was inspired by Joseph Bell, a surgeon at Edinburgh’s Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, for whom Doyle had previously worked as an assistant. Bell, like Holmes, was known for his ability draw broad conclusions out of minute observations. However, his observations were used as a doctor instead of a detective.

The character is believed to have been influenced by Francis “Tanky”, a policeman and master disguiser who was Leicester’s first private investigator. Watson, Holmes’ best friend and medical doctor, is also thought to have influenced the character.

In 1887, Doyle published his first Sherlock Holmes story in print in a British Christmas paperback magazine. The stories were published until the author’s passing in the following forty years. The detective was often accompanied by Dr. Watson, his faithful friend and assistant. Holmes’ brother Mycroft and his criminal mastermind, Professor James Moriarty, are two other characters.

According to records, Sherlock Holmes Day was celebrated every year since 2013. Many people are unaware that Sherlock Holmes Day is observed every May 22 because Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the character, is celebrating it. There are many reasons to celebrate this day.
