So of course Sherlock had more of a challenge with her. He didn’t want to take the case at first because he didn’t think anything of it at first and figured it was going to be really easy for him, but he was wrong when he came to her, she was already expecting him in the living room in her house. For the first time he was blank and couldn’t read her like he can normally can read anyone. Quickly he looks at Watson to read him just by what he is wearing and turns back at her, yet everything is still blank but that’s because she is not wearing anything on her. So it seems he can’t read her for that reason like normally he can read people by just what they’re
People thrived to experience life, and to seek out emotions, whether they were good or bad. This emotion and imagination of th...
Another convention of the detective story is that the detective will have a confidant through whom he can explain his reasoning to the reader. Holmes has a confidant, Watson, who is the stereotypical gentle doctor who is plain and uninteresting so as not to draw attention away from Holmes. “I had no keener pleasure than in following Holmes in his professional investigations'; this implies that Watson lead an uninteresting life, without many interesting hobbies or pastimes.
“You can get up now, Watson. The war is over.” (Columbus) Many readers may be familiar with the Scottish physician and author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote short stories about a famous detective named Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Dr. John H. Watson (Wilson). The 1985 film, Young Sherlock Holmes is an imaginative creation of how Holmes and Watson met during their younger years. In the beginning of the film, the viewers are introduced to the young detective Sherlock Holmes and later introduced to Holmes’ close friend, Dr. John H. Watson. The viewers are also introduced to Holmes’ nemesis Professor James Moriarty. The film displays a background for the creation of Sherlock Holmes and how Holmes and Watson “supposedly” met during their early years. If Young Sherlock Holmes creates background information for those who are interested in Sherlock Holmes and wonder how Holmes, Watson and Professor Moriarty met as well as how they were created, then maybe the film is a great way to introduce these famous characters as well as provide a bit of information on how these characters came to be created and how they continue to fascinate the viewers of today with multiple films and two television shows.
To be quite honest, I personally do not and will not voluntarily read any science related, science fiction, or just science textbooks at all. But because it was required to choose a book and turn in a paper with a PowerPoint presentation, I decided to pick a book that I am somewhat interested in and thought would be easy to write a paper about. And since emotions are something every living creature has inside of them (well maybe a majority of them) I figured Joseph LeDoux’s book would give me an insight on grasping a better understanding the emotions and their role inside our body. And it actually did give me some knowledge about this topic. This book was not only about the emotions and the outcomes of the researches LeDoux performed, but it was also about the evolution, the thought, and the memory of the brain and how it all works inside humans and animals.
The key phrase in this passage that sums up the relationship between the two is “I am lost without my Boswell.” (Conan Doyle) “Boswell” relates to James Boswell, companion and author of Dr. Samuel Johnson’s biography. Watson relates to Boswell in the sense that the Sherlock Holmes stories are told through Watson’s point of view, as Boswell writes about Dr. Johnson. Watson is proven to be very useful tool to Holmes, because while Watson proven useful, it is often Holmes that ties all the knots together. The two are a working match and cannot function to their best without each other.

Many people knew who Sherlock Holmes was and many people also knew who Dr. Watson was. Dr. Watson was an assistant of Sherlock Holmes. Watson was the narrator in most of the original stories. But even though these two were partners, they weren’t always the best together. I think that Holmes could have treated Watson better.
In Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s mystery novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Holmes and Watson illustrate how opposites attract. Holmes’ personality comes across as condescending and flippant, while Watson, obedient and mannerly, show diversity attracting. As these characters speak, their actions and the way they talk bring out their very different personalities. Throughout this novel, Holmes and Watson show how extremely different personalities come together into one beneficial relationship.
With regards to the recent tragic murder of our good detectives Mr. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson that I, Julius Calvin Peterson the Third, am so deeply saddened to hear about;
Watson’s loyalty is evident in the “Adventures of A Dying Detective”, as Holmes insults Watson’s medical competence. Watson endures the depreciative comment and resumes to help Holmes. Although Holmes challenged Watson’s professional intellect, Watson pushed his pride aside and persisted seeking aid for the betterment of Holmes. Watson never once had the intention in leaving Holmes’ side. "I must wait and hear his opinion, Holmes." Watson remains by Holmes’ side until sure his companion is receiving the attention he needs in order to get
