In the early 21st century, Benedict Cumberbatch gave the world the definitive portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in the BBC's Sherlock.
Then again, Jeremy Brett had been declared the "definitive" Holmes in Granada Television's series in the 1980s. The same was said of Basil Rathbone's performance in 14 films before that, and William Gillette's version of Holmes on stage at the turn of the 20th century had also been lauded to the skies.
In short, all four actors were declared to be the "definitive" Holmes, and yet their various interpretations of the greatest character in fiction could not be more different.

What caused Victorian readers to respond with such fervor to Arthur Conan Doyle's creation? How did an eccentric American actor from Connecticut become acclaimed as the definitive Holmes on both sides of the Atlantic? Who were the original fanboys who ushered in the concepts of fandom and cosplay in the 1930s?

When her beloved uncle is arrested in relation to a series of murders near the British Museum, Poppy and the burgeoning detective set out to find the evidence to set him free. Can they track down the real killer in time to save Uncle Ormond from the rope?
In the latest adventure of Poppy Stamford and Sherlock Holmes, the two not only uncover secret societies, but find themselves soul-searching to clarify their beliefs about an array of moral issues including euthanasia and the death penalty, as well as their feelings toward one another.
