SHERLOCK HOLMES SERIES

- What few
people realize is that the world's greatest fictional detective had
addictions. It was his failing health that made Dr. John
Watson necessary to be around him all the time. Cocaine and
morphine were the drugs of choice for Sherlock. However, both of
were legal in Holmes' time. Movies and television shows based on
Sherlock Holmes play down or ignore completely this important quirk.
Sherlock's author, Sir
Arthur Conan Doyle.
