The variety of portrayals of Sherlock Holmes is slightly less interesting to me than the passionate responses they provoke among Holmesians. The character is written just colorfully enough that readers develop a very precise picture of him in their heads -- but it's a very different picture from person to person.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the greatest detectives of all time. He's appeared in television shows, movies, short stories, and novels. Get out your magnifying glass and look at the Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes in Pictures. http://on.nypl.org/1kEslGC
