The Shackles Of Sherlock
Outline: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the world’s most popular detective, Sherlock Holmes. He was the template from which all fictional detectives are based and is firmly entrenched in literary history. However, while Conan Doyle did far more that just breathe life into his principal character, many of his other achievements have gone largely unrecognized. In The Shackles of Sherlock Holmes, David Burke (television’s most recognizable Dr Watson) shows why Sir Arthur Conan Doyle should be remembered as more that just a one‐detective wonder.
