Image Description

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, tired of his famous character Sherlock Holmes, 'killed' him in the tale titled 'The Final Problem' at the Reichenbach Falls (Meringen, Switzerland). Holmes was then being stalked by his archienemy Moriarty (behind the bushes in the picture) and they both seems to fall to the waters after a lethal struggle.


Spoiler alert: Conan Doyle had to resucitate Holmes as the readers demanded it, so later in 'The adventure of the empty house' the detective reappears telling Dr. Watson that he didn't die in the fight with Moriarty because he had learned jiu-jitsu and he simulated his deadly dissaparition to investigate better other criminals.

"Had to" in the very loosest possible sense of the phrase. :lol: I thought the TV series Sherlock dealt with this storyline very cleverly though, given how cobbled-together the source material was.
