The real Baker Street in London UK is not like that of the Arthur Conan Doyle novels, but it is fully decorated with memorabilia concerning Holmes, Watson, and Moriarty. Even the tube terminal and tunnels in Baker Street are fully decorated as if Sherlock Holmes and company were the most important business and cultural incomes in London. People believe that he lived or is still living today – and that is the premise of a new mystery series that is sure to attract new fans.
Business owners in Baker Street run two(2) museums, several pubs, hotels, restaurants, and a transportation terminal (the tube) all decked out like the 19th Century and covered with Holmes and Watson materials. You can make a full vacation tour just visiting these sights, seeing the pictures, quotations, artifacts and other items. This is glorious for Sherlockians, especially since the new season of BBC’s SHERLOCK comes around again in autumn 2011 on PBS in America.
Watson and Holmes seem very like two very real gentlemen, as does James Moriarty, Inspector Lestrade and many others. Some like them better than their real friends.
