Life imitating art, or the other way round?
9 people found this helpful.
Actor Sheridan Haynes is really Sherlock Holmes. Well, not really. But he does play him in a British television program. He has a bit of an obsession about the detective. They share the same initials. He even has a flat on Baker Street. If only life were as simple as it is in the books.
Very high quality for what is essentially fanfic
This guy is immersed, a Doylean scholar, let us say, so these are worth reading right there almost right up with the canon. Symons is very serious when emulating Doyle. There have been many imitators for over 80 years now, and I have seen some of the worst. This gentleman runs ahead of the pack , yea, he is almost the Hound itself. Only withvery close scrutiny will you see the luminous paint. Well worth the purchase if looking for more Holmes!
Sherlock Holmes steps out of the TV to solve another case
This is really a clever little book. TV actor Sheridan Hayes, who plays Sherlock Holmes on TV, decides to try his hand at a real case.
