Good old Sherlock, he does just as you would expect from the world’s first and best consulting detective.

Although, in reading the various Sherlock Holmes stories I get a very different sense of Holmes than the one tv and film adaptations portray, especially in relation to his relationship with Watson. Too many adaptations have Watson the old dope, but both he and Holmes are fit and active men and while Watson is often there to show how superior Holmes’ brain may be there is never any indication that he is anything but capable.
