The world's only consulting detective was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887 and quickly became one of the most celebrated characters in all of literature, much to the author's surprise. Holmes' analytic rationality and his method of detailed observation and deduction have set a new standard for the detective formula. The character was partially based on one of Doyle's mentors, Dr. Joseph Bell, and his distinguished ability to deduce facts about his patients' medical conditions and personal lives simply by observing details. Besides his mental abilities, Holmes is also a charming figure, a skilled fighter and swordplayer and master of disguises.
