Scottish author Arthur Conan Doyle published his first story about detective Sherlock Holmes in 1887. More than a century later, the sardonic sleuth remains as popular as ever. This Christmas, the 2009 film "Sherlock Holmes" starring Robert Downey Jr. is getting a sequel, with Jude Law returning as his sidekick Dr. Watson.
