"The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work give him a unique place in English letters. Personally, I'd walk a million miles in tight boots just to read his letters to the milkman" - Stephen Fry "The brilliance of the stories lies in the relationship between Holmes and Watson, which is both funny and touching" - Jonathan Coe "Now, as in his lifetime, cab drivers, statesmen, academics, and raggedy-arsed children sit spellbound at his feet. No wonder, then, if the pairing of Holmes and Watson has triggered more imitators than any other duo in literature" - John Le Carré
