‘He [Moriarty] is the Napoleon of crime, Watson. He is the organizer of half that is evil and nearly all that is undetected in this great city.  He is a genius, a philosopher, an abstract thinker.  He has a brain of the first order.’

Moriarty 1

 

‘He [Moriarty] sits motionless, like a spider in the centre of its web, but that web has a thousand radiations, and he knows well every quiver of each of them. He does little himself. He only plans. But his agents are numerous and splendidly organised. Is there a crime to be done, a paper to be abstracted, we will say, a house to be rifled, a man to be removed – the word is passed to the Professor, the matter is organised and carried out. The agent may be caught. In that case money is found for his bail or his defence. But the central power which uses the agent is never caught – never so much as suspected. This was the organization which I deduced, Watson, and which I devoted my whole energy to exposing and breaking up’

‘Sometime when you have a year or two to spare I commend to you the study of Professor Moriarty.’

 

Moriarty 3

‘You know my powers, my dear Watson, and yet at the end of three months I was forced to confess that I had at last met an antagonist who was my intellectual equal [Moriarty].’

All quotes was written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, said by Sherlock Holmes in the novels.

1. Details Matter

Whatever incarnation Sherlock Holmes appears in, his best quality is his exacting eye for detail. If you pay as much attention to detail in your work as Holmes does, you will find that little will get past you

Details on the wall

2. Get acquainted with all fields of knowledge 

Holmes knew what facts were relevant and also knew where to go in order to get them.

3. Look for a possible alternative and provide against it

One should set aside any and all prejudices when considering facts -Sherlock Holmes

Yep

4. There is more than one way to approach problem 

Holmes uses many problem-solving approaches. Sometimes he goes out in disguise and asks the right questions. Other times, he sits up all night smoking a pipe and thinking about it. At yet other times, he uses clever deception to draw the players into the game.

5. Some mysteries are never solved

For Holmes, this is not a bad thing. It doesn’t bother him that he can’t find the answer to everything. Instead, he finds it fascinating and files the information away for future use. If every case were so neatly resolved, he would probably lose interest, being prone to boredom as he is without a puzzle at hand. The infinite nature of the puzzle keeps the fun alive in his work.

Our beloved Moriarty

6. Free yourself of your habits of over-thinking

Be aware of your feelings and emotions and get some measure of detachment from them.

7. Partners are indispensable 

As we all know, Watson is Holmes’s partner, his assistant and follower. He is also the audience and narrator of Sherlock Holmes’s most unique adventures. Even the brilliant Holmes likes to have someone to bounce ideas off of, and Watson’s mere presence is sometimes more useful than any other tool at his disposal.

To a great mind nothing is little -Sherlock Holmes

I am going to post fun facts about our beloved fictional detective character, Mr. Sherlock Holmes

GIVE APPLAUSE PLEASE

/loud applause

Thank you.

I am going to reveal the fact either from the novels, or the movies.

 

Talk about the novels first, here they come!

1. Sherlock Holmes played the violin pretty well

Tv Series Sherlock Holmes played violin

Movies Sherlock Holmes played violin

Sherlock Holmes, in fact, created some songs with his violin. It was seen in Scandal In BelgraviaTV series Sherlock Holmes made a sad song for Irene Adler. It seemed like Sherlock started to like her intelligence. But yeah, that case was one of several mysterious ending that had ever been written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

2. Sherlock Holmes once killed off by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle because he got sick of writing about him, but fan support made the author bring him back

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I know, I do know, that fan support is AAAMAAZZZING. I am so glad that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle finally made a right decision.

Nice mustache by the way, Sir.

3. Gregory House from the TV show, House, is made based on Sherlock Holmes

Gregory House

Tv Series Sherlock Holmes (what a good-looking guy!)

Movies Sherlock Holmes (amazing as usual, Sir!)

That TV show, House, well I admit I have watched it, but like only several times. Because it was good, really, but it hasn’t stolen my mood yet, but as far as I watch, Gregory House does have a good skill in debating, like Sherlock did.

4. Sherlock Holmes is a drug addict (uses cocaine and opium) and at the time it was socially accepted

I watch the movies, I watch the TV series, and of course I read the novels. The novels was made long time ago, in there I read that Sherlock Holmes was a true drug addict. But when I saw in TV series, Sherlock Holmes used nicotine patches to control his addiction to cigarettes.

5. Sherlock Holmes was using fingerprints as evidence long before most police departments

There are still a lot of facts in Sherlock Holmes movies, but you can read it yourself in IMDb.

 

Done. Go busy yourself.

When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First things first, for those who haven’t seen any of Sherlock Holmes movies or TV series

WATCH THEM FIRST

I don’t care HOW or WHEN, but please, watch it. Or read the novels, the authentic novels.

THEY ARE TRULYMASTERPIECE

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle released his books between 1890s. And, the novels NEVER BECOME OUTDATED.

You really don’t believe me?

TRUST ME.

Fine, we’re heading to our head topic now. I am going to compare Sherlock Holmes in the movie, which is Robert Downey Jr. – the philanthropic, billionaire, genius, playboy  *quoted from the Avengers /wink* –

Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes

As you know, he is also the main figure of Marvel’s technology geek superhero – the Iron Man – . I am amazed with his ability to debate with someone. He is invulnerable when he is speaking, there’s always an answer for him. And, he has a grrrreeaaat sense of humor.

STILL, there is one man that I will compare to him

He is Benedict Cumberbatch 

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes

I am guessing a lot of people do not know him. He was born in London (aww here he comes my England cutie) and he is 36 years old now. He is planned to act in Star Trek 2 *source from google; I’m not a fan of Star Trek*.

The way he investigates something is adorable. He represents the true Sherlock Holmes, like what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in his novels. Shortly, he is 90% likely to true Sherlock Holmes.

According to that comparison I wrote, obviously I took Benedict Cumberbatch as the winner. Why?

Here, to Robert Downey Jr. You are good-looking for a man like your age, you have a FANTASTIC sense of humor, and your skill in debating is… /hands up.

BUT, you are better in your Iron suit, saving people with your guns and weapons, than investigate, figuring out something mysterious. Sherlock Holmes does have sense of humor, but not as big as you.

Benedict Cumberbatch represents the true Sherlock Holmes. The way he talks, laughs, investigates, mad, yes, you deserved the role, Mr.

FYI, the Sherlock Holmes 3 (movies) still remains unknown, who are the casts, the plot, when it will be released. (source IMDb)

the Sherlock Holmes season 3 (BBC) is confirmed will be premiered in FALL 2013. (source http://www.deadline.com/2012/08/sherlock-creators-steven-moffat-mark-gatiss-reveal-three-key-words-season-3/)

HAPPY WAITING!
