Holmes was assisted by his trusty {{sidekick}}, [[TheWatson Doctor John Watson]]. Watson also served as the {{narrator}}: all of Holmes's adventures were (with a few exceptions) told via the FramingDevice of Watson's journals, ably [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis edited for publication by]] [[Creator/ArthurConanDoyle Sir Arthur Conan Doyle]]. Holmes had a number of well-known [[CatchPhrase catch phrases]]: "[[{{Koan}} When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth]]", "The game's afoot" (itself a quote from Creator/{{Shakespeare}}'s ''Theatre/HenryV''), "ThePlotThickens", and, most famously, "Elementary, my dear Watson" (which Holmes [[BeamMeUpScotty never actually said]] in any of Doyle's stories).

* Andrew Lane's "Young Sherlock Holmes" series (not to be confused with the movie of the same name), chronicling a [[TeenGenius teenage Sherlock's]] adventures. These stand to be the only teen novels endorsed by the Doyle Estate.

* ''Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street'', a popular tongue-in-cheek "biography" of Sherlock Holmes written in 1962 by W.S. Baring-Gould, has been the source of many interesting theories about Holmes, some of which are often assumed to be canon (even in this very entry). These include the idea that the King of Bohemia was Edward [=VII=]; that Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler became lovers in Montenegro during the time Holmes was hiding from Moran, and that Irene returned to New Jersey to bear his child, a boy later known as Literature/NeroWolfe [[note]]This was actually suggested to him by Rex Stout, the writer of the Nero Wolfe novels, but given that Stout once wrote a paper suggesting that Watson was a woman...[[/note]]; that Holmes in his twenties was a stage actor in a company that toured America; that he worked on the UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper case; that Watson had three wives; that Holmes's bee-keeping in later years was intended as a way of producing royal jelly, then thought of as a "fountain of youth"; and that Holmes died in the 1950s after spending the war years - when he would have been roughly 90 years old - fighting Nazis. In ''Film/TheAdventureOfSherlockHolmesSmarterBrother'', the title character, Siegerson, is named for Baring-Gould's Holmes ''pere''. As a way of freeing up Sherlock and Mycroft for their various occupations while still ensuring they were members of the "right" class, Baring-Gould invented Sherringford, the eldest--and smartest--brother, who stayed home in Yorkshire to take care of the responsibilities of a country squire. Sherringford was Holmes's original name in Doyle's first draft of ''A Study in Scarlet''.
