"But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation. That is why I have chosen my own particular profession, or rather created it, for I am the only one in the world.”'The only unofficial detective?' I said, raising my eyebrows.'The only unofficial consulting detective,' he answered. 'I am the last and highest court of appeal in detection. When Gregson, or Lestrade, or Athelney Jones are out of their depths–which, by the way, is their normal state–the matter is laid before me. I examine the data, as an expert, and pronounce a specialist’s opinion.' - The Sign of Four

Hello and Welcome
Hello and welcome to The Consulting Detective, a blog devoted to literature's most famed - and first consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes.
First, I will give you just a bit of background. I have been a fan of Sherlock Holmes for almost as long as I can remember, enjoying the detective's exploits before pursuing the many films which chronicled Holmes' career, which only broadened by love of the character to a greater extent.
Through this blog, I hope to share my thoughts on the world's foremost expert in crime. It will be a pleasure to share this with you, and I cordially invite you to return time and time again. Join me and we shall mount those familiar 17 steps to the great detective's sitting room and explore the character of Sherlock Holmes - The Consulting Detective.
