Arthur Conan Doyle was both a physician and a versatile author of historical novels, short stories, volumes of poems, plays, histories, science fiction, and publications on occult science. Holmes and Watson are 2 of the most immediately recognizable figures in popular culture. Their images have been adapted countless times for innumerable purposes. Biographical data concerning them can be drawn from the research efforts of Holmesian authorities.

Letter to the editor. "From the Honorary Secretary of The Sherlock Holmes Society Sir, One cannot help wondering if the good Dr Hugh Watson, who so cheerfully admitted to an IQ score of 65 (letter, October 29), is not a distant connection of his namesake, the late Dr John H. Watson, who himself was no great shakes in the IQ department. 'It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light', was Holmes's assessment of him...."

42. Thomson, June. Holmes and Watson. New York: Carroll & Graf Publishers, 2001.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 286-288); "Scrupulously searching out the clues and uncovering all the shreds of evidence in the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmesian scholar and crime writer June Thomson explores and illuminates one of English literature's most celebrated friendships in this fictional biography of the inscrutable sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his redoubtable companion, Doctor Watson. Speculative only when precise data is wanting, Thomson examines in striking detail the personalities of Watson and Holmes, traces the development of their partnership in crime detection, and addresses such long disputed issues as the possible homosexual implications of their relationship, Holmes's disappearance for three years, and the identity of the second Mrs. Watson.". "With theories as to the location of 221B Baker Street, the actual person of the King of Bohemia, the dating of The Hound of the Baskervilles, and other matters much debated by Sherlock Holmes experts, Thomson offers fans of the Great Detective a fascinating companion volume to Conan Doyle's tales. And for anyone who has enjoyed the Holmes stories in print or in their adaptations for film, television, and radio, she provides an engaging biographical account of the immortal literary friendship born of a bond between a sleuth and a physician that thrived for forty-six years."--Book jacket

45. Trelford, Donald. "Trelford On Thursday: Illingworth rattling the chain." The Daily Telegraph (London), Nov 24, 1994: 32.

Elementary, my dear [Trelford], writes Nick Utechin of my request for further and better particulars about the rugby career of John Watson, MD. Did he play for Rosslyn Park or Blackheath?; This is to be found in 'The Sussex Vampire,' a story in 'The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes,' where Robert Ferguson, recently returned from South America, writes to Holmes expressing the fear that his wife, a Peruvian beauty, may be a vampire, and adds a postscript: "I believe that your friend Watson played rugby for Blackheath when I was three-quarter for Richmond."; The most authoritative confirmation comes from H M Brodie, archivist at Blackheath RFC, who says a framed likeness of Dr Watson (taken, presumably, from a book illustration) hangs in the clubhouse at Rectory Field. He adds that a Blackheath shirt and other mementos are on show at the Sherlock Holmes Museum at Meiringen in Switzerland.
