7-22-10: Arthur Conan Doyle on Sherlock Holmes

This is a pretty interesting video featuring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle talking about Sherlock Holmes, as well as about his interest in psychic matters.

What's interesting to me is that Doyle mentions an instructor of his, a doctor, whom he used as a base for Holmes' deductive ability. Any one who watches the show House may know that the writers based House's character on Sherlock Holmes. So, in the end, House, a doctor, is based on Sherlock Holmes, a detective based on a doctor.
