Summary, etc.:
Sherlock Holmes is the most adapted literary character in history, with millions of fans worldwide. But who is Sherlock Holmes, and how has the ever-popular detective influenced modern-day crime-solving, espionage, and even space travel? For the first time, the fascinating hidden side of Holmes' legacy is revealed through exclusive interviews-including with BBC Sherlock creator Mark Gatiss-as well as through reconstructions and memorable clips from popular Sherlock productions. Top NASA scientists, pop-culture experts, and front-line detectives uncover his incredibly widespread impact-without Holmes, there would be no inspiration for Bond, Batman, or much of the crime-investigation entertainment that is so popular today. Fast-paced and entertaining, The Real Sherlock Holmes is compulsive viewing for any Sherlock Holmes or literary fan.
