Sherlock Holmes (/ˈʃɜːrlɒk ˈhmz/) is a fictional private detective created by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Referring to himself as a "consulting detective" in the stories, Holmes is known for his proficiency with observation, forensic science, and logical reasoning that borders on the fantastic, which he employs when investigating cases for a wide variety of clients, including Scotland Yard.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's intent with Holmes' final battle with Moriarty was to end the series and begin something new. But, the fans and the publishers demanded more. Readers wore mourning attire and walked down the street and the publishers pleaded for Doyle to write more. Doyle finally gave in and brought Sherlock back to life.

Sherlock: You're wrong, you know. You do count. You've always counted and I've always trusted you. But you were right. I'm not okay. Molly: Tell me what's wrong. Sherlock: Molly, I think I'm going to die. Molly: What do you need? Sherlock: If I wasn't everything that you think I am, everything that I think I am, would you still want to help me? Molly: What do you need? Sherlock: You.

Molly Hooper: You're a bit like my dad. He's dead. No, sorry— Sherlock: Molly, please don't feel the need to make conversation. It's really not your area. Molly: When he was dying, he was always cheerful, he was lovely. Except when he thought no one could see. I saw him once. He looked sad. Sherlock: Molly. Molly: You look sad. When you think he can't see you. Molly: Are you okay? Don't just say you are, because I know what that means—looking sad when you think no one can see you. Sherlock: You can see me. Molly: I don't count. What I'm trying to say is, if there's anything I can do—anything you need, anything at all—you can have me. No, I just mean. I mean, if there's anything you need, it's fine. Sherlock: What could I need from you? Molly: Nothing. I don't know. You could probably say thank you, actually. Sherlock: Thank you. Molly: I'm just going to go and get some crisps. Do you want anything? It's okay. I know you don't. Sherlock: Well actually, maybe I— Molly: I know you don't

Sherlock: Molly! Molly Hooper: Oh hello. I'm just going out. Sherlock: No you're not. Molly: I've got a lunch date. Sherlock: Cancel it. You're having lunch with me. Molly: What? Sherlock: I need your help. It's one of your boyfriends. We're trying to track him down. He's been a bit naughty. Watson: It's Moriarty? Sherlock: 'Course it's Moriarty. Molly: Jim wasn't actually my boyfriend. We went out three times. I ended it. Sherlock: Yes, and he stole the Crown Jewels, broke into the Bank of England and organized a prison break at Pentonville. For the sake of law and order I suggest you avoid all future attempts at a relationship, Molly.

Watson: That's the phone— the pink phone. Lestrade: What, from A Study in Pink? Sherlock: Well obviously it' s not the same phone. But it's supposed to look like— "A Study in Pink"? You read his blog? Lestrade: Of course I read his blog. We all do. Do you really not know that the Earth goes around the sun?

Sherlock Holmes is not only a timeless detective, spawning countless adaptations and generally never going out of style, but is also referred to copiously as a source material. The television character Gregory House draws influence from the Holmes archetype, for example, as does the video game character Professor Layton. (Coincidentally, pulling from Holmes also calls for pulling from Watson; House and Layton both sport foils who fill this position!)
