What with the two recent Sherlock movies, the wonderful British television show, the forthcoming American show, and Andrew Lane’s young Sherlock series, there’s been a lot of the detective out there lately. Of equal interest to me is his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not just because of his famous fictional sleuth, but because of his interest in psychic matters. The story of the Cottingley fairies (more from me about it here), for instance, would never have gone viral (in the Edwardian sense) if not for Conan Doyle’s involvement. Now via the wonderful brainpickings I’ve come across this film of the great man speaking at length on this and other matters. Amazing!
