Forensic scientists and crime historians reveal the impact Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional character had on the development of real-life investigations. As a detective ahead of his time, Sherlock Holmes popularised techniques, instruments and a special reasoning method that went on to solve many crimes using seemingly inconsequential detail and invisible evidence. He became the only fictional character to be honoured by the Royal Chemistry Society, as scientists and detectives reveal many of the high-profile cases solved thanks to his ingenious techniques.
