Sue Baker's view...

Sherlock Holmes will be featured at a Museum of London exhibition this autumn and 2015 will see the return of the BBC TV series – what better time to brush up on your Sherlock Holmes knowledge. Matthew Bunson has compiled a small companion to the life of the great man – and his creator. There’s everything here from what disguises our Detective used – including his Clergyman disguise in Scandal in Bohemia, his film and TV appearances to the most famous Mrs Hudsons. Facts and interesting information throughout including the details of the only actor to play both Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes and choice quotes from the novels and stories including what Watson said when he spotted that “Clergyman”. Lovely stuff.
