The Appeal of Sherlock Holmes (ET)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Is it his mental abilities? His isolated lifestyle? The fact that he chooses to fight crime? What would a writer have to do with Holmes to make the character, in effect, not “really” Sherlock Holmes?
