Sometimes, the impossible takes place: Sherlock Holmes makes a mistake. Yes, it happens. The master detective falls prey to some of the very errors he urges us to avoid. If even he falters, what chance do we mere mortals have? Well, for one, we can examine those moments when Holmes does go wrong and see what we can learn from the shortcomings of the normally infallible master–after all, it is often in the very errors and flaws of a process that we are able to discern the most about how something actually functions.
This was a brilliant read. Fantastic article, and very informative! I quite enjoyed this.
“The upper class were often criticized for living a fluttery-sort of life style, who made ‘much ado about nothing,’ if you will. However, the newest adaptations of the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson comment on almost the same thing. It’s funny to see how almost two centuries can pass, and stories can still be boiled down to the same routes as their ancestors.”
Throughout the years, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character of Sherlock Holmes has interested so many in writing and reading mystery novels, and psychological thrillers such as the novels he wrote. Directors, producers, and actors alike have been itching at the chance to get involved with the series in one way or another, which has lead to many different adaptations to the characters throughout the past two centuries. It seems that with every new interpretation of the character, comes an entirely new wave of intellectual theories, and outrageous ways of solving their mysteries. Sherlock Holmes has earned his rightful title of “the greatest detective who never lives, and who will never die.”
“In the first season (which is comprised of only three, hour and a half long episodes), Holmes favorite means of communication with Watson is by text message. Little prompts of what each message says pop up on the screen, and allow you to just barely enter the mind of the 21st century adaptation of Sherlock Holmes. The entire mystery is solved via iPhone; clues, research, the whole shebang takes place through text message. It’s the most current adaptation of the series to date, and what a brilliant job Gatiss and Moffat have done.”
No, Watson, don’t shoot him!
From the Rathbone!Holmes film Terror by Night. Colonel Moran played by Alan Mowbray. He is said to be the cleverest criminal since the late Professor Moriarty. Here Moran is not a terribly good villain though, prone to using overly complicated and supposedly clever plots but then being easily defeated (but that seems to be a trademark of all of these films) but I find a couple of things interesting with this version. One that he’s a jewel thief, which seems to reference Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s play The Crown Diamond, and two, that Holmes makes reference to Moran having an addiction to the study of mathematics. Make of that what you will. (I personally may choose to view it using slash goggles and take it to mean Moran rather liked studying a certain professor of mathematics.)
Based on my earlier post. John and Sherlock swapping jobs with Moriarty.A chance encounter leads John Watson, ex-con, to meet the infamous Sherlock Holmes. They offer a unique service, claiming they can fix any problem, no matter how difficult, just make sure you have the funds.
Jim Moriarty, a freelance detective, Has been tracking down Sherlock Holmes for months now, with barely any results to show for it. But with Sherlock and John keeping constant tabs on him, will he stop them before they stop him?
