The name Sherlock Holmes has become a byword for talented detectives since Arthur Conan Doyle first created Holmes in his novels about 130 years ago. Sherlock solved many mysterious cases with his extraordinary powers of observation, knowledge, and reasoning. His character has been revived in a recent TV series, aptly titled, “Sherlock.” All of the settings have been changed to modern-day. Sherlock takes a taxi to the crime spot instead of a carriage. He uses a cell phone and computer to solve cases. Dr. John Watson, Sherlock’s best friend and partner, records an investigation log and posts Sherlock’s story on his blog. Much has been changed in this new interpretation, but one thing has not ? Sherlock’s superb reasoning. The cold-blooded decisiveness that he shows has made fans around the world even more rabid about him.

Sherlock When I met you for the first time yesterday, I said Afghanistan or Iraq. You looked surprised.

John Yes, how did you know?

Sherlock I didn’t know, I saw. Your haircut, the way you hold yourself says military. But your conversation as you entered the room (A bit different from my day.) said trained at Barts ? so army doctor, obvious. Your face is tanned but no tan above the wrists. You’ve been abroad, but not sunbathing. Your limp’s bad when you walk, but you don’t ask for a chair when you stand like you’ve forgotten about it, so it’s at least partly psychosomatic. That says the original circumstances of the injury were traumatic. Wounded in action, suntan ?Afghanistan or Iraq.

John You said I had a therapist.

Sherlock You’ve got a psychosomatic limp, of course you’ve got a therapist. Then there’s your brother.

John Mm?

Sherlock Your phone. It’s expensive ? email enabled, MP3 player. If you’re looking for a flat share you wouldn’t waste money on this. It’s a gift, then. Scratches. Not one, many over time. It’s been in the same pocket as keys and coins. A man sitting next to me doesn’t treat his one luxury item like this. So, it’s had a previous owner. Next bit’s easy. You know it already.

John Sherlock, run!

Moriarty Oh, good! Very good.

John If your sniper pulls that trigger, Mr. Moriarty, then we both go up.

Moriarty Isn’t he sweet? I can see why you like having him around. But then, people do get so sentimental about their pets. They’re so touchingly loyal. But oops! You've rather shown your hand there, Dr. Watson. Gotcha! Westwood. Do you know what happens if you don’t leave me alone, Sherlock, to you?

Sherlock Oh, let me guess. I get killed.

Moriarty Kill you? No, don’t be obvious. I mean, I’m gonna kill you anyway, some day. I don’t wanna rush it, though. I’m saving it up for something special. No, no, no, no, no. If you don’t stop prying, I’ll burn you. I’ll burn the heart out of you.
