Sherlock Holmes is a classic story many people around the world  have read. Arthur Conan Doyle helped our minds travel into the life of Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson in late 1800’s in England. There is another version of the story that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman star in, which is the BBC show Sherlock, first airing in July of 2010. This show has taken the heart of over 10 million people. Both are great ways to spend your time, but what makes them different?

Lets start with the shows first episode: A Study in Pink. It starts out with Watson, alone and depressed after he came back from Afghanistan. He is walking in a park one day when he sees an old friend Mike Stamford. You won’t ever see Stamford again after this episode, but he is very important. He started the classic friendship between Sherlock and Watson. The story continues with Watson coming to meet Sherlock at Barts hospital where he works. Sherlock immediately deducted almost everything about him. They solve a case together, and things boom from there. They become flat mates; they start solving crimes together. There’s problems on the horizon: such as Irene Adler, Moriarty, or even Eurus.  But, in the end they are all conquered.

Now on to the book, A Study in Scarlet.  The start is very similar to the show. Watson comes back from the British front lines. He’s lonely and he thinks his life is meaningless until he meets an old acquaintance, Stamford; he’s the same character from earlier. Sherlock and Watson meet almost the same way as the show.  Overall, the book is wonderful. If you want to know more about it though, you must read it yourself!

Sherlock Holmes, weather from the book or the show is great.  Arguably, this is one of the best shows of our generation.  Next time you have any free time, consider giving the whimsical stories a try.
