I am going to discuss my adaption ideas for The Final Problem and to create a film that encapsulates the essence of the crime-solving duo of Holmes and Watson.
"Damn it!" I cursed under my breath for the umpteenth time. Once again, while balancing on a rolling ladder I had so clumsily managed to drop a book on the thankfully plush carpet of the used book store. Unfortunately this time I drop it on a patron. But what the

As a child, I loved nothing better than relaxing in front of the coal fire naturally engrossed in Sherlock Holmes movies on our monochrome television.
