The Dancing Men. Peter Melonas Peter Melonas
   
Conan Doyle repeatedly said that Holmes was inspired by the real-life figure of Joseph Bell, a surgeon at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, whom Conan Doyle met in 1877 and had worked for as a clerk. Like Holmes, Bell was noted for drawing broad conclusions from minute observations. However, he later wrote to Conan Doyle: «You are yourself Sherlock Holmes and well you know it». Sir Henry Littlejohn, Chair of Medical Jurisprudence at the University of Edinburgh School, is also cited as an inspiration for Holmes. Littlejohn, who was also Police Surgeon and Medical Officer of Health in Edinburgh, provided Conan Doyle with a link between medical investigation and the detection of crime.
Perhaps no fictional character ever created has become so charmingly real to his readers. Holmes has inspired a universe of portrayals in books and popular culture, and the detective's legacy can be summed up with the Museum of London's description of him: «The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die.
