Holmes is a cult figure in France and, like every aspect of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved sleuth, the mystery of his ancestry is hotly debated and the deductions anything but elementary...."

'Yes,' replied Dr. George Vanderburgh, a family physician from Shelburne, northwest of Toronto. 'We're all Sherlockians, people who admire Sherlock Holmes.' The woman scrunched her brow. 'You mean, you sit around and read the stories together?' Not quite. This annual gathering of several hundred devoted Sherlockians every January in New York is much more an exercise in contemporary idolatry than a study of Victorian literature...."

"The Irregulars, who insist that Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are far more real than the cast of characters in "'he Adventure of the Impeached Politician,' met in New York earlier this month for their 65th year. Their annual dinner, 'perpetuating the myth that Sherlock Holmes is not a myth,' has grown into four days of festivities, leaving celebrants enervated but happy at the end of a remarkable menu of lunches, dinners, and cocktail parties for the devotee to choose from. The tone reflects not the ascetic life of the Great Detective, but the gregarious and thirsty tendencies of the Manhattan literati led by Christopher Morley who gestated the Baker Street Irregulars in the back room of a speakeasy in the later years of Prohibition. These days there is a more explicit scholarly note, but even the weekend's keynote address by Edinburgh University historian Owen Dudley Edwards was a clarion call to let the revels begin -- not that Irregulars need much urging. At the BSI dinner, the governor of New York watched amused as his latest appointment to the Court of Appeals donned a British barrister's wig to conduct a mock trial of some of the Sherlock Holmes stories. 'Will you be wearing that wig in Albany?' asked one Irregular. 'No!' the governor answered for him."

His creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, vowed to kill him in the 1890's and turned to the archcriminal Professor Moriarty to do the job. 'You won't! You can't! You musn't!' the author's mother protested. Holmes survived, only to face rival creations by others who shamelessly copied his methods, and a legion of parodists who trifled with his name. Nevertheless Holmes is entering a third century, standing taller than ever. Several hundred Americans and a sprinkling of foreign guests gathered in Manhattan over the weekend to salute the master detective on his 146th birthday. For more than half a century this has been an annual rite, organized by the Baker Street Irregulars, the organization of Holmes devotees...."

The gas lights on the narrow street outside Auberge Le Vieux St. Gabriel are suitably Victorian. Guests inside dressed in various guises - deerstalker caps, meerschaum pipes and Inverness capes - added an appropriate touch. But one thing was elementary - you couldn't mistake the stinging frost for London fog.

"In the detective's shadow: Abbey National has tried to dilute the image of banks as soulless organisations, whose only driving force is the creation of profit, by unveiling a three-metre high bronze of Sherlock Holmes as part of its 150th anniversary celebrations. The move commemorates the bank's 'association' with the detective, dating back to 1932, when Abbey's head offices moved to Baker Street and incorporated Holmes' fictional address of 211b. Abbey still receives letters addressed to the crime-buster, which are answered by his 'secretary' who works for the bank."

"...The most celebrated recreation was at the Reichenbach Falls in 1968, when, watched by a large crowd of bemused Swiss, the society staged the desperate struggle between Holmes and Moriarty (played by Lord Gore-Booth and Charles Scholefield, QC, respectively). Her editor, Barbi Boxall, recognised her qualities, and Dalton quickly became an associate editor, deputising for Boxall, who appreciated her eye for detail. Dalton stayed on for more than a decade and continued to work part-time until her retirement. Dalton was infuriated when rheumatoid arthritis confined her to a wheelchair. She hated to be thought an invalid and was as active as her painful debility permitted. At the time of her death she was planning a trip to Madeira...."

The P G Wodehouse Society is playing the Sherlock Holmes Society at cricket: in full Victorian costume. 'We're resigned to the fact that the Sherlockians will win the sartorial contest, because they're very into dressing up anyway,' grumbles a Wodehousian. 'Whenever they go off on their trips to the Reichenbach Falls, they get dressed up in Victorian costume as a matter of course, and they've had 1895-style cricket caps made up specially.'"

"Few fictional characters divide audiences so passionately. Some are fans of Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes, others are devotees of the Peter Cushing version, while many argue that no actor quite caught the manner of the greatest consulting detective of them all until Jeremy Brett took up his deerstalker. Now two more actors are to take on the challenge of playing the heroic detective in a TV battle between rival interpretations, one ITV, the other BBC, which is likely to equal the struggle between Holmes and Moriarty atop the Reichenbach Falls. In the ITV corner is Stephen Fry, a passionate scholar of the work of the character's creator, Arthur Conan Doyle....Over in the BBC corner is a relative newcomer, Rupert Everett, 45, the glamorous Hollywood star who made his name on the British stage in the early Eighties....Members of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London are poised to make their judgment and, at first sight, neither actor appears to pass muster...."

It is more than 70 years since Sherlock Holmes solved his last case, but he is still sent more than 40 letters a month to his rooms in Baker Street. One of the most enduring mysteries, however, is how this most famous of detectives came to be commemorated in Japan, Switzerland and Edinburgh but never by his home at 221B. The answer, when it finally emerged, was elementary, my dear Watson -- nobody had ever got round to it. But now, more than 60 years after the death of author G K Chesterton, who was the first to suggest a statue of the sleuth, planning permission for one has been granted to the Sherlock Holmes Society...."

"The matter of how to handle women's chess has been a dilemma for American chess for years. Women have traditionally been weaker players than men and there has been much debate over this subject. There has been the feeling that women shy from head-to-head competition and, perhaps, from defeating men. However, by winning at chess, they will earn respect. One role model must surely be Irene Adler, the only person in the works of Conan Doyle ever to outwit Sherlock Holmes. In the short story 'A Scandal of Bohemia,' Dr. Watson wrote of Adler, 'To Sherlock Holmes, she was always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex.'...Still, the only person to outwit Sherlock Holmes would not be able to join the Speckled Band, which is the Sherlock Holmes Club that meets annually on Boylston Street. The popular Speckled Band simply does not admit women."

"The story for the evening, 'The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire,' was a succinct masterpiece of Victorian suspense, a whodunit with a Freudian twist. It might easily have passed for something more recently composed, were it not for a certain polished elegance and an occasional giveaway phrase -- like 'Rubbish, Watson, rubbish!' But the group of 35 people who assembled at Town Hall here to celebrate the 140th birthday of Sherlock Holmes needed no reassurance of their hero's relevance. Many in the group, which is named the Three Garridebs -- the title of another story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about the master detective -- were dressed like illustrations of Holmes in deerstalker caps, three-button jackets and high-collar shirts. They had come to match wits and exchange scholarly views about what they call 'the canon,' the 56 short stories and 4 novels by Doyle featuring the sleuth of Baker Street...."

"Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts in Italy have unveiled a bronze bust of the Great Detective at a Florence railway station to mark Holmes's -and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's -little-known Italian connection. Gianluca Salvatori, head of the Italian Sherlock Holmes society Uno Studio in Holmes (A Study in Holmes), said it was not widely known that Holmes had visited Florence after his struggle to the death with Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. In 'The Adventure of the Empty House', the first story in The Return of Sherlock Holmes, the detective tells the astonished Dr Watson (who like everyone else thought that Holmes had perished) that after surviving the encounter with Moriarty thanks to a hidden ledge, 'I took to my heels, did ten miles over the mountains in the darkness, and a week later found myself in Florence, with the certainty that no one in the world knew what had become of me'...."
