    Even an ardent Holmes aficionado might find two hours singing the praises of a fictional character feel like a bit much.

    Odd as it sounds, How Sherlock Changed the World argues persuasively that it was a crime writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who virtually invented the modern science of forensics by having his fictional detective employ it.

    The program overstates its case, suggesting that modern-day forensics wouldn’t exist without Holmes. That’s like saying there would have been no lunar landing without Jules Verne or no organ transplants without Mary Shelley.
