Revati There came the time when we have to deal with the modern Sherlock Holmes adaptations, where the detective is moved from the Victorian era and is placed into modern age.

Why is it important to notice this? I am rather conservative. I know many people think being conservative is boring, and to mention it in connection with Sherlock Holmes one may say: I watch them gladly, but at the same time I know — and it is painful to know — that the greatest value of Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes is missing from them.

We have to talk about this value if we want to treasure the reminiscence of the fantastic writer and of the great detective and respecting the facts at the same time.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created his hero to act in his own age, in the Victorian era. And though Sherlock Holmes lived according to the Victorian standards, his profession was far beyond his time.

In the 19th century England — just like everywhere else around the world — criminology was in an elementary state. Not just because of technology was undeveloped, but another reason for this was that the different phases of the investigation were done separately, by different people, and virtually there was no effective cooperation between them.

Because of the lack of communication and collaboration crucial details of important cases remained undetected. Sherlock Holmes appeared in literature, but he relied on his exact observations and fantastic deductions, and even used new methods while working on his fictional cases.

And he accomplished much more: This way the British sleuth brought spectacular development into the history of criminology — without him this branch of science would not be on its present level.

But doing so would be unreasoning. It would be as absurd as not accepting the facts. At high school I had a lovely teacher. She had long, blonde hair, she was thin and dainty and had a beautiful face. I can say she was like a Barbie doll, and this is not an overstatement. Her sense of humour was even bigger than her beauty, and she was very humane.

Her lessons were always enjoyable, because she gave interesting or funny examples to things. I already loved books before high school, but thanks to her I became fond of literature and she gave me lots of useful knowledge for life. I am much obliged to her for having a Sherlock Holmes website.

It was long ago when I was a schoolgirl, and at that time cinemas showed the modern version of Romeo and Juliet starring Leonardo Dicaprio. She told she understands that the play was adapted, but unfortunately this way the gist of it had lost. Romeo and Juliet must be evaluated in their own age, because their acts are outstanding only in their original age.

Modern times have different values and many of their motives is not understandable. I think exactly the same of the modern Sherlock Holmes adaptations: I watch them gladly, but I am grieving the lost of their gist.

Throughout the history of science there were several great scientists who were beyond their time with their theories and inventions. Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla are perfect examples. Their work affects both our present age and the future.

They brought development not only into their own age, but into the life of the upcoming generations as well.After the first Sherlock Holmes film came out in , a couple of adaptations on the small screen followed.


In , BBC One debuted the critically-acclaimed mini-series titled Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Holmes and Watson in .

Sherlock Holmes has been around for years and has had at least as many adaptations. Probably twice as many, come to think of it. And while many of the really famous Sherlock Holmes adaptations originate in the UK, there’s a whole world out there that loves Sherlock Holmes just as much.
