Sherlock Holmes is the most adapted literary character in history, with millions of fans worldwide. But who is Sherlock Holmes, and how has the ever popular detective influenced modern-day crime-solving, espionage and even space travel?

For the first time, the fascinating hidden side of Holmes’ legacy is revealed through exclusive interviews – including BBC ‘Sherlock’ creator Mark Gatiss – reconstructions and memorable clips from popular Sherlock productions. Top NASA scientists, pop culture experts and front-line detectives uncover his incredibly widespread impact – without Holmes there would be no inspiration for Bond, Batman or much of the crime investigation entertainment that is so popular today.

Fast-paced and entertaining, The Real Sherlock Holmes is compulsive viewing for any Sherlock Holmes or literary fan.
