Sidney Paget: The illustrator of Sherlock Holmes

Sidney Paget is the most famous of all illustrators of the Canon. He illustrated The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Return of Sherlock Holmes for the Strand Magazine. The art editor of the Strand wanted Paget’s younger brother Walter to do the artwork, but the commission was sent in error to Sidney, who used Walter as a model for Sherlock Holmes.

Here are some of them:

It’s a fact: #SherlockLives

tumblr_mwqp78dYyK1r3cc8ko1_500It’s a fact: #SherlockLives. The most famous detective in literature is more alive than ever. This charismatic character and his inseparable friend Dr. Watson are assured success wherever they go thanks to the boundless imagination of its creator, the writer Arthur Conan Doyle. If we add to this the undeniable and overflowing talents of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman can only expect an exceptional result.


Sherlock: Season 3 has begun. “The Empty Hearse” is the first episode which is brilliantly written by Mark Gatiss. In it we will meet again with everything we expected of this serie and its characters and…  much more.

Brilliant. Always new and fresh. A luxury of television of our time.


Returning to 221b Baker Street.

Sherlock is back.

Please talk Mr. Holmes…

Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce

Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce

“I think that you know me well enough, Watson, to understand that I am by no means a nervous man. At the same time, it is stupidity rather than courage to refuse to recognize danger when it is close upon you.” Sherlock Holmes

The Final Problem

Peter Cushing
Peter Cushing




“A man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber-room of his library where he can get it if he wants.” Sherlock Holmes

The Five Orange Pips

Benedict Cumberbatch




“How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?’ Sherlock Holmes

The Sign of Four

Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law

Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law

“I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it.” Sherlock Holmes

A Study in Scarlet
