“Well, I don’t like it; but I suppose it must be,” said I. “When do we start?”
”You are not coming.”
”Then you are not going,” said I. “I give you my word of honour — and I never broke it in my life — that I will take a cab straight to the police station and give you away unless you let me share this adventure with you.”
[…]”Well, well, my dear fellow, be it so.”

Perfect show was perfect.
In developing his literary detective, Doyle based Sherlock Holmes on Dr. Joseph Bell, a surgeon and teacher he had studied with while attending Edinburgh University.
Holmes’ last name may have been based on American jurist and fellow doctor Oliver Wendell Holmes (above), whom Doyle greatly admired.
“Never,” Doyle once wrote, “have I so known and loved a man whom I had never met.”
(How can you not admire a man with a ‘tache like that.)
His detective’s first name may have come from Alfred Sherlock, a prominent violinist of his time, although other possibilities have been put forward.
“Years ago,” Doyle was once quoted in a newspaper, “I made thirty runs against a bowler by the name of Sherlock, and I always had a kindly feeling for that name.”
Holmes’ devoted friend Dr. John Watson may have been named after a doctor who, like Doyle, had practiced at Southsea. The real Dr. John Watson also was a Portsmouth Literary and Scientific Society member who’d served time in Manchuria.
Sherlock Holmes and John Watson were not the original names Doyle chose.
In “The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes,” Sherlockian scholar Vincent Starrett writes: “A leaf from a notebook of the period exists, and the astonished eye beholds it with dismay. ‘Sherrinford Holmes’ was the detective’s name as first it was jotted down by his creator. And from the same source, one infers there was an earlier name for Watson. The good doctor, one learns with tardy apprehension, was to have been ‘Ormand Sacker.’ It is a revealing page, that page from Conan Doyle’s old notebook, and a faintly distressing one. In the end, however, it was Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock Holmes it is today – the most familiar figure in modern English fiction; a name that has become a permanent part of the English language.”
One of the most remarkable characteristics of Sherlock Holmes was his power of throwing his brain out of action and switching all his thoughts onto lighter things whenever he had convinced himself that he could no longer work to advantage.
The good Watson had at that time deserted me for a wife, the only selﬁsh action which I can recall in our association. I was alone.

Can I just gush here for a moment, and say that I absolutely love the detail that the BBC Sherlock prop department puts into the sets?
I mean, LOOK AT THOSE BOOKS. They are all such excellent choices.
The neck isn’t bad either.
