Put this on an easel in our arts class. Sorry for the quality. The letter M made of four crossed sabres is a “trademark” of Moriarty from the Soviet screen version of SH. I Believe! Found hanging off cafe Florin in Utrecht The Netherlands! Due to the weather it had suffered - but I still believe!

The paper had "lost the plot", she said.

According to Guinness World Records , Sherlock Holmes has been depicted on the big and small screen a monster 254 times, reports the Mail . Shakespeare's Hamlet is the runner-up with 206 appearances.
Edit Storyline In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan war, less adoring and more active. Written by KGF Vissers Plot Summary | Add Synopsis

Ali Miller's tea set makes a guest appearance in Sherlock. Photograph: BBC It was a key scene in Sunday night's Sherlock . After evading justice for the crime of the century, the master detective's nemesis had popped round to Baker Street for a gloat. As he revealed how he'd got away with it, Sherlock poured him a cup of tea from a most striking teapot – and designer Ali Miller suddenly had a hit on her hands.
We all saw Sherlock jump to his death from the roof of St Bart's hospital in his latest BBC reincarnation. We even saw the blood pouring from his head. But within five minutes he was looking on wistfully as Watson stood by Holmes's own grave – all ready for a third BBC series.
Jeremy Brett in Granada's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Photograph: ITV / Rex Features Everyone knows he was the arch villain – the Napoleon of crime – dashing about in the fog with an evil laugh and probably a sword stick. But, like most things everyone knows about Sherlock Holmes, it's not quite true. Professor Moriarty, with the quietly sinister manner and reptilian sway of the head, turns up in exactly one story, The Final Problem, although he plays a direct role in The Valley of Fear, and is indirectly mentioned in some others. Like Irene Adler – of A Scandal in Bohemia fame – and the Hound [of the Baskervilles] itself, he is a one shot deal. True, he does kill off our hero in his one go, but since that was reversed a few years later – oh, Sherlock, we knew you were kidding – it hardly accounts for his fame.
