Ahh the benefits of people watching and taking mental notes if one is an author. And it is entertaining even if one is not.
wow. we were once thought in a high school newspaper seminar that sometimes, the best stories are from personal experiences. :)
No kidding? How amazing to know Sherlock was based on a real person. At first I thought it was Alexander...
Then it wasn't him at all, lol.
He doesn't look anything at all like Robert Downey Jr.!
He probably fell somewhere on the autism spectrum too.
I think some people are born with the ability to "solve things" like that. I don't think it can be a learned skill. Interesting.
My dad was is/was like that, he can figure out things from the smallest detail.
That is very, very interesting, I never knew that and I love Sherlock Holmes from Basil Rathbone up to the present day.
Must have helped a lot to have seen it happening
Interesting, must have been a great man to be around!-Kati
That one I actually knew
And I thought it was made up
I've read about Dr. Bell. i wish I knew someone worth writing about so I could become famous.
That is very interesting. I had no idea.
The Sherlock Holmes series is still good to read. Doyle did very well in writing that. Basically it is CSI without all of the dramatic facial expressions! :)
another good fact to know....:)
