Elementary My Dear Watson


The cover story of this week’s digital edition features the world’s greatest detective and focuses on a new exhibition – among other things – that’s set to open in London on Oct. 17.

‘Sherlock Holmes: The man who has never lived and will never die’ runs from Oct. 17, 2014 to April 12, 2015 at the Museum of London, inviting visitors to dust off their magnifying glass and explore the atmospheric locations in Britain that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his stories of the great detective.

The world of the greatest fictional detective of all time will be illuminated at the Museum of London this autumn, in a dedicated exhibition, which will be the largest of its kind for over 60 years. Drawing on the museum’s fabulous Victorian and Edwardian collection and bringing together Sherlock Holmes material from across the globe, including several key world-class loans, visitors will be able to see the iconic Belstaff coat and the Derek Rose camel dressing gown worn by Benedict Cumberbatch, from the Sherlock BBC television series (cover photo).

Created by Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, Sherlock Holmes is a character adored by his fans. London is almost a character in itself in the Sherlock stories and it’s hard to imagine the detective living anywhere else and visitors can explore the city as Sherlock did and visit some of his favourite haunts.
