If he's not smoking, he's almost invariable fiddling with his pipe in one way or another. He keeps a rack of pipes on his office desk and another rack on his home coffee table.

* As noted above, Granada Television's legendary Franchise/SherlockHolmes adaptation subverted this by having him switch to cigarettes later on, as per the books. Giving 21st century Series/{{Sherlock}} a ''nicotine patch'' habit is probably the logical extension of this, although Creator/BenedictCumberbatch's take on the character comes off as more the type to smoke [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beedi beedies]] or something else aggressively obscure and unfashionable out of sheer bohemian contrariness.

** ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' gave its titular character
a ''nicotine patch'' habit is probably due to [=21st=] century London's stringent smoking laws. The show's adaptation of "The Abominable Bride" had Sherlock and Watson puffing away on pipes due to the logical extension of this, although Creator/BenedictCumberbatch's take on the character comes off as more the type to episode's Victorian setting[[note]]Creator/BenedictCumberbatch said, however, that he and Creator/MartinFreeman, rather than actually smoking, were using thermal pipes that merely created smoke [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beedi beedies]] or something else aggressively obscure and unfashionable out of sheer bohemian contrariness.from the bowl.[[/note]].
