Toby's animal actor is a slightly different cross-breed than in the novel, apparently a cross between a spaniel and a border collie (rather than a lurched). However, unlike the original version of the character, Sherlock's Toby the dog appeared in The Six Thatchers, a loose adaptation of The Adventure of the Six Napoleons (albeit with elements from The Sign of the Four, previously adapted by the series as The Sign of Three).
Toby appears in both the novel and film The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, where Sherlock Holmes makes use of the dog and a bottle of vanilla extract to track Professor Moriarty to Austria. We are both huge Sherlock Holmes fans…of the books, the movies, the television series.
We had thought that the consummate Sherlock Holmes was portrayed by Jeremy Brett (and who knows what part he played in the classic, My Fair Lady? ) Though “Toby” was described by John Watson as a “ugly long haired, lop-eared creature, half spaniel and half lurched, brown and white, with a very clumsy waddling gait,” he was portrayed as a purebred dog in a few movie or TV portrayals.
“Carlo,” from “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches,” was a Mastiff, and the supernatural hound of the Baskerville was often portrayed as a Wolfhound. And more recently, Sherlock’s flashbacks to childhood (via Benedict Cumberbatch) swirl around the memory of “Redbird,” the family Irish Setter.

Christopher admires Holmes because he uses logic to solve mysteries and never gives in to the temptation of supernatural explanations for odd happenings. Christopher tries to copy Holmes’s methods as he attempts to solve the mystery of Wellington’s death.
Christopher sees in Holmes a validation that his own values are worthwhile, even if other people don’t understand how his mind works. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time quotes below all refer to the symbol of Sherlock Holmes.
Note: all page numbers and citation info for the quotes below refer to the Vintage edition of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time published in 2004. Also, Sherlock Holmes doesn’t believe in the supernatural, which is God and fairy tales and Hounds of Hell and curses, which are stupid things.
Christopher feels like he’s similar to Sherlock Holmes, because they’re both very observant and can concentrate their minds on one thing to... (full context) His head hurts from this realization, but he tries to be like Sherlock Holmes and focus only on the problem at hand.

Edit Sherlock Gnomes (Johnny Depp) and his assistant, Dr. Gnome Watson (Chinese Editor), storm into London's natural history museum, where their nemesis, a pie mascot named Moriarty (Jamie Demetrius), is holding gnomes hostage, planning to smash them.
After a brief battle, Moriarty is defeated by getting seemingly crushed by a dinosaur skeleton. Meanwhile, Gnome (James McEvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt), as well as the other gnomes, are moving to London.
While there, Gnome and Juliet are declared the new leaders of the garden. Noticing that Juliet has cast him aside to improve the garden, Gnome leaves to find a flower as a centerpiece, but nearly gets caught in a shop, forcing Juliet to rescue him.
Gnome and Juliet return to the garden, but then find out that all the other gnomes have gone missing. Sherlock and Watson show up at the scene to investigate, and after Gnome and Juliet help them escape from a sewer flood, Sherlock agrees for them to team up.
Goofs Characters speak of “the HMS Nimrod” which is incorrect for a ship's designation. Crazy Credits No gnomes were harmed in the making of this motion picture... well, okay, maybe there were a couple.
The short story “Uncle Jeremy's Household”, published in “Boy's Own Paper” magazine, is considered the first sketch that has clear raw material relating to Shylockian stories, including notably Baker Street, a Watson-like narrator, a strong-willed woman looking ahead to Irene Adler and a prototype of Holmes, whose early name was Hugh Lawrence. Both characters exhibit remarkable powers of observation and deduction, a tendency to come to rapid conclusions after the briefest examination of the circumstances, drug use (cocaine for Holmes, Vicodin for House, morphine for both), talent with a musical instrument (violin for Holmes, piano, guitar and harmonica for House), and only one real friend (Dr. Watson and Dr. Wilson, respectively), who connects the detached hero to human concerns.
Holmes and House also share an unconventional personality and, to an extent, a brusqueness of manner, especially when occupied in an interesting case. Actor Hugh Laurie has remarked that House's obsession with television, video games, and popular music is meant to echo Holmes habit of listening to classical music or reading dull monographs for hours on end in order to relax his mind while pondering a case.
While House uses large quantities of Vicodin for pain management, Holmes used drugs in an experimental, often research-driven modality, and also took cocaine intravenously when bored; some episodes imply that House at one time also used drugs in this experimental fashion before he developed his current dependency on Vicodin, making references to experiences with LSD and cocaine. Medically they have no problem while they abuse narcotics, but morally, is a different story; they both disagree with their friends vices.
But while Watson has claimed to have “weaned” Holmes off cocaine, Wilson has several times attempted to rid House of his Vicodin addiction. Without the intellectual stimulation of diagnosing patients, House falls into a stark depression, even when his leg is supposedly “cured” and pain-free (see the episode No Reason “).
Near the end of the episode Failure to Communicate, ” in explaining his understanding of what his patient with aphasia is actually saying, House gives a relatively common riddle about a room with an all-southern view and a polar bear to his lackeys. The character of Sherlock Holmes was originally based by his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, on Joseph Bell, a doctor noted for his love of deductive reasoning and skill with both ordinary diagnostics and forensic medicine (which was quite new at the time); the character of House can thus be seen in a way as taking the idea of Sherlock Holmes full circle.
In Love Hurts, Cameron calls Chase Sherlock while they perform an environmental scan. In It's a Wonderful Lie “, House receives a second-edition Arthur Conan Doyle as one of his Secret Santa gifts.
In chapter 5×11, Joy to the World “, Wilson refers to an “Irene Adler” (calling her House's one true love) when he is talking with Tab and Outer about why he threw away a valuable gift (that valuable gift being a rare medical text on diagnosis written by a “Dr. Joseph Bell”), “ Irene Adler” is the antagonist of the Sherlock Holmes short story “A Scandal in Bohemia” and actually manages to outwit Holmes.
“Forty something” is a 2003 UK television series, starring and directed by Hugh Laurie as Paul Slippery, a doctor facing a mid-life crisis. Actress Alike Morison was the voice of Inspector Beth Lestrade in the Canadian cartoon series Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century.

There are still those who believe that the basset hound was crossed to reduce his paws so that his body would be close to the gground, andhe could smell his prey more sharply. Very clever, the basset will spare no effort to manipulate his owner with his fallen eyes and receive affection and attention.
