S1:Ep354 mins2009Guest: Philip Gardiner, Brian Allan

Without doubt Sherlock Holmes is the most famous detective in print and on film. He has been with us for generations and is constantly remade and retold. He became more widely known than his author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and thousands even believe he actually existed as a real man and lived in Baker Street, London.

There is another character in the stories that is often neglected and misunderstood and that is Dr. Watson. We take a deep look into the character of Dr. Watson to expose his origin. He may have been more than just a story telling device used to highlight the genius of Watson. Join us as Philip Gardiner and Brian Allen unlock the mysteries of Dr. Watson, the man behind Sherlock Holmes.
