The Complete Sherlock Homes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Brilliant series and inspired some of my favorite modern-day characters (Goren from Law and Order: Criminal Intent and Gregory House from House M.D.).
"I ended it." Molly Hooper broke up with the most dangerous man in all Britain. Molly Hooper beat Chuck Norris in a fight. Molly Hooper knows all the digits to pie. Molly Hooper can ski through a revolving door. Sherlock didn't survive the fall; Molly Hooper's tears can bring the dead back to life." Tumblr
Law and Order Criminal Intent is one of my all-time favorite shows! Since TV isn't showing it anymore, I've started watching it on NetFlix. Robert (Bobby) Goren (played by Vincent D'Onofrio) reminds me so much of Sherlock Holmes!
