Irene Edit

I added back in the statement, ""Irene Adler" is the protagonist of the Sherlock Holmes short story "A Scandal in Bohemia" and actually manages to outwit Holmes. Watson called her the only woman Holmes ever loved." removed from a prior editor.

Cursory check online agrees with this sentiment as part of the original novella; however the Sherlock Holmes movie will not. Trickyar 20:44, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, Watson also expressed this sentiment in the Granada TV series episode, and the TV series is closer to the stories than the movies are. Time for some research! --SteveHFisyh 03:05, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

  • Trying to untangle prose isn't exactly my forte. Does it need to be taken back out, or remain in? Trickyar 03:42, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

The actual quote is: "To Sherlock Holmes she is always THE woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer." - --SteveHFisyh 03:11, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Movie v Published Works Edit

Some sort of policy regarding how source material from the movie differing from the original printed articles/stories will need to be made clear in the very near future.Trickyar 20:44, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Written works rule! :-) --SteveHFisyh 03:06, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

House was based on the pre-film Holmes, the "canonical" Holmes - so nothing regarding the film should be brought up. 14:35, May 5, 2010 (UTC)
