Centenary, My Dear Watson

on BBC Radio 4 FM

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote: 'I have wrought my simple plan if I give one hour of joy to the boy who's half a man and the man who's half a boy.'
The men and women of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London are still having their fair share of joy, 100 years on from 1887, when the first
Sherlock Holmes story was published. They celebrated the centenary in fine Victorian style, with a pilgrimage through Switzerland to the scene of Holmes's greatest triumph, at the Reichenbach Falls, where he vanquished Professor Moriarty. Susan Marling was there. Producer HELEN ROBSON
