Fellow MX Writer Tim Symonds, who once made it possible for us to get a guided tour of the Reform Club in London, asked me to re-post this. I'm happy to do so:
Many of us know quite a bit about Sherlock Holmes – his Stradivarius violin, his ear-flap hat, the fact he keeps his tobacco in a slipper, that he bumps off the Professor Moriarty, the ‘Napoleon of Crime’. But what about Holmes’s great friend and biographer Dr. John H. Watson? Try these multiple-choice questions. A score of 8 out of 10 would be brilliant.
How did I do? Perhaps I wouldn't answer that question if I hadn't answered all 10 questions correctly, And perhaps you will do as well as I did. It's a good quiz, but even better are the explanatory paragraphs by Tim once you choose an answer.
Tim Symonds has published five full-length Sherlock Holmes novels including ‘Sherlock Holmes And The Sword Of Osman’ (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/178092755X) and his latest, ‘Sherlock Holmes And The Nine-Dragon Sigil’.
