If you send us a question, hopefully we'll have time to get back to you promptly. The Watson Foundation is not accepting donations at this time and does not intend to in the foreseeable future. We are not a political action committee of any kind, and actually support campaign finance reform to get money out of politics.
IBM made 12 billion dollars last year, so contributions from the public are not required for the continued research on Watson. I confess, too, that I was irritated by the egotism which seemed to demand that every line of my pamphlet should be devoted to his own special doings".
In " The Adventure of Silver Blaze ", Holmes confesses: "I made a blunder, my dear Watson—which is, I am afraid, a more common occurrence than anyone would think who only knew me through your memoirs"; and in The Hound of the Baskervilles , chapters 5—6, Holmes says: "Watson, Watson, if you are an honest man you will record this also and set it against my successes!
Despite this, it was succeeded by twenty other stories. In the later stories, written after Holmes's retirement c. So long as he was in actual professional practice the records of his successes were of some practical value to him, but since he has definitely retired After Holmes's retirement, Watson often cites special permission from his friend for the publication of further stories; but received occasional unsolicited suggestions from Holmes of what stories to tell, as noted at the beginning of " The Adventure of the Devil's Foot ".
In " The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier ", one of only two stories narrated by Holmes himself, the detective remarks about Watson: "I have often had occasion to point out to him how superficial are his accounts and to accuse him of pandering to popular taste instead of confining himself rigidly to facts and figures"; but the narrative style seldom differs, and Holmes confesses that Watson would have been the better choice to write the story, noting when he starts writing that he quickly realizes the importance of presenting the tale in a manner that would interest the reader.
In any case, Holmes regularly referred to Watson as my "faithful friend and biographer", and once exclaims, "I am lost without my Boswell ". At the beginning of " The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger ", Watson makes strong claims about "the discretion and high sense of professional honour" that govern his work as Holmes's biographer, but which do not keep Watson from expressing himself and quoting Holmes with candour of their antagonists and their clients.
In " The Red-Headed League ", for example, Watson introduces Jabez Wilson: "Our visitor bore every mark of being an average commonplace British tradesman, obese, pompous, and slow"—wearing "a not over-clean black frock-coat". In A Study in Scarlet , having just returned from Afghanistan, John Watson is described "as thin as a lath and as brown as a nut. Watson used to be an athlete: it is mentioned in " The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire " that he used to play rugby union for Blackheath a famous old London club , but he fears his physical condition has declined since that point.
In " The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton " , Watson is described as "a middle-sized, strongly built man -- square jaw, thick neck, moustache Furthermore, he is considered an excellent doctor and surgeon, especially by Holmes.

For instance, in " The Adventure of the Dying Detective ," Holmes creates a ruse that he is deathly ill to lure a suspect to his presence, which must fool Watson as well during its enactment. To that effect in addition to elaborate makeup and starving himself for a few days for the necessary appearance, Holmes firmly claims to Watson that he is highly contagious to the touch, knowing full well that the doctor would immediately deduce his true medical condition upon examination. Holmes was a man of habits I stimulated him If I irritated him by a certain methodical slowness in my mentality, that irritation served only to make his own flame-like intuitions and impressions flash up the more vividly and swiftly.
Such was my humble role in our alliance. Watson sometimes attempts to solve crimes on his own, using Holmes's methods. For example, in The Hound of the Baskervilles , Watson efficiently clears up several of the many mysteries confronting the pair, and Holmes praises him for his zeal and intelligence.

However, because he is not endowed with Holmes's almost-superhuman ability to focus on the essential details of the case and Holmes's extraordinary range of recondite, specialised knowledge, Watson meets with limited success in other cases. Holmes summed up the problem that Watson confronted in one memorable rebuke from " A Scandal in Bohemia ": "Quite so According to Holmes, what he should have done was "gone to the nearest public house" and listened to the gossip.
Watson is too guileless to be a proper detective. And yet, as Holmes acknowledges, Watson has unexpected depths about him; for example, he has a definite strain of " pawky humour", as Holmes observes in The Valley of Fear. Watson never masters Holmes's deductive methods, but he can be astute enough to follow his friend's reasoning after the fact. Watson comments as narrator: "Familiar as I was with my friend's methods, it was not difficult for me to follow his deductions, and to observe the untidiness of attire, the sheaf of legal papers, the watch-charm, and the breathing which had prompted them.
As he observes to the reader, "I have not lived for years with Sherlock Holmes for nothing.
Watson is endowed with a strong sense of honour. At the beginning of " The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger ," Watson makes strong claims about "the discretion and high sense of professional honour" that govern his work as Holmes's biographer, but discretion and professional honour do not block Watson from expressing himself and quoting Holmes with remarkable candor on the characters of their antagonists and their clients. Despite Watson's frequent expressions of admiration and friendship for Holmes, the many stresses and strains of living and working with the detective make themselves evident in Watson's occasional harshness of character.
The most controversial of these matters is Watson's candor about Holmes's drug use. Though the use of cocaine was legal and common in Holmes's era, Watson directly criticizes Holmes's habits. Watson is also represented as being very discreet in character.

The events related in " The Adventure of the Second Stain " are supposedly very sensitive: "If in telling the story I seem to be somewhat vague in certain details, the public will readily understand that there is an excellent reason for my reticence. It was, then, in a year, and even in a decade, that shall be nameless, that upon one Tuesday morning in autumn we found two visitors of European fame within the walls of our humble room in Baker Street.
Here he is direct about a method of preserving discretion and confidentiality that other scholars have inferred from the stories, with pseudonyms replacing the "real" names of clients, witnesses, and culprits alike, and altered place-names replacing the real locations. Edward Fielding played Watson in the film Sherlock Holmes. Roland Young played Watson in the film Sherlock Holmes. Reginald Owen played Watson in the film Sherlock Holmes.
The series of Sherlock Holmes films with Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson portrayed the doctor as a lovable but incompetent assistant. He is portrayed as a brave and intelligent man, but not especially physically strong. In the parody film Without a Clue , the roles of a witless Watson and an extremely intelligent Holmes are reversed.
In the film, Holmes Michael Caine is an invention of Watson Ben Kingsley played by an alcoholic actor; when Watson initially offers suggestions on how to solve a case to some visiting policemen, he is at the time applying for a post in an exclusive medical practice, and so invents the fictional Holmes to avoid attracting attention to himself, continuing the "lie" of Holmes's existence after he fails to get the post. At the same time, Watson becomes increasingly frustrated that his own talents are unrecognised, and unavailingly attempts to win celebrity for himself as "the Crime Doctor.
Law portrays Watson as knowledgeable, brave, strong-willed, and thoroughly professional, as well as a competent detective in his own right. Apart from being armed with his trademark sidearm, his film incarnation is also a capable swordsman. The film portrays Watson as having a gambling problem, which William S. Baring-Gould had inferred from a reference in " The Adventure of the Dancing Men " to Holmes keeping Watson's cheque book locked in a drawer in his desk.
