How Sherlock Changed the WorldHDPG

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Sherlock Holmes is, without doubt, the most famous fictional detective in the world and interest in the legendary detective has never been higher. But what was the inspiration behind the character, and why was he so popular? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle modelled Holmes’ lightning powers of deduction and observation on a real surgeon, and added his own knowledge of fledgling forensic techniques to create his fictional detective. In an era when eyewitness reports and ‘smoking gun’ evidence were needed to convict criminals, and police incompetence meant that Jack the Ripper stalked the streets freely, Sherlock Holmes’ crime-scene methods were revolutionary. Forensic scientists, crime historians and Sherlockian experts reveal for the first time the astonishing impact the fictional detective had on the development of real-life criminal investigation and forensic techniques.
