Dr. Watson and Mr. Holmes: Or The Worm That Turned (223B Casebook)

223bYou can’t blame Dr. Watson with having it up to here with Sherlock Holmes. So superior, so right, so condescending to his friend. That’s why this story’s a delight. Published in 1904 in the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, “The Worm That Turned” creates a Watson who knew his stuff as a doctor, and while he loves his old friend, he needed to be taught a lesson in humility.

Stories from the 223B casebook — stories published during Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s lifetime (plus later ones I liked) — are published here every Monday and Friday. The up-to-date list can be found here.
