When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote The Final Problem in 1893, in which Sherlock Holmes seemed to plunge fatally to the bottom of the Reichenbach Falls in the grip of his old adversary, Professor Moriarty, he vowed to have nothing more to do with his celebrated sleuth. But the pressure of public demand, not to mention the financial offers from British and American publishers, persuaded him to relent. In 1903 he wrote The Adventure of the Empty House in which the delighted reader discovered Holmes had survived the fatal drop to hound Moriarty's remaining confederates.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Episode One includes the following classic mystery tales:

  • The Adventure of the Empty House
  • The Adventure of the Devil's Foot
  • The Adventure of the Abbey Grange

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
