Why does Sherlock Holmes declare that the person he is to meet is the worst man in London? Arthur Conan Doyle, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Thank you to all of our financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you. With the pandemic still hissing in the wind, we need your help more than ever.

We’ve got three new titles available at the store at classictalesaudiobooks.com. Scaramouche, Leave It to Psmith, and The Inimitable Jeeves are now available as standalone audiobooks. More titles are underway.

App users can whet their Halloween appetite by listening to “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, by Washington Irving in the special features area of their app.

September Sleuths concludes this week, with a sharp adventure with Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.

Sherlock Holmes was one of my gateways into the classics. Years ago, like mid 1990s, I bought a set of cassette tapes of Sherlock Holmes radio dramas, which featured John Gielgud as Sherlock Holmes, and Ralph Richardson as Dr. Watson. Between that and the VHS boxed set I bought at a truck stop of old movies with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, I was hooked.

When my son was born, we named him Basil after Basil Rathbone (because we couldn’t name him Sherlock – that’s ridiculous, right?) When he was a baby, and I would be up at night walking with him, I would read Sherlock Holmes stories to him.

When I perform any of the Sherlock Holmes stories, I try to bring the essence of Basil Rathbone to Sherlock Holmes, and Ralph Richardson to Dr. Watson. I say Lestrade with a long “a”, because that is how he was first introduced to me when I listened to John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson.

I hope you like it.

And now, The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton, by Arthur Conan Doyle.

We discuss chapters 6-9 of The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As Sherlock Holmes drives himself closer to the villain of this tale, and the recovery of a stolen treasure, he brings all the charm he can muster by dressing up like an old fisherman and being captured by his own friend Watson, as well as employing a small army of street urchins in pursuit of the murderer! Sherlock is convinced the elusive peg-legged Jonathan Small is the murderer, is there even a mystery here? Or is there room for doubt? Meanwhile Watson struggles with his love for Mary Morstan, knowing that, should she recover her treasure, she will be lost to him at last. Will love conquer all? Tune in to hear Flex and Herds discuss the potential of a murder mystery with no mystery to truly solve, as the swashbuckling adventure continues.

We discuss chapters 1-5 of The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As we unfurl the curtain on the second of the infamous Sherlock Holmes series, John B. Watson is as obsessed with the beauty and charm of Sherlock Holmes’ client as she is with figuring out what guardian angel has been watching over her since her father passed away. As we are introduced to a cast of exotic characters (many of whom Sherlock seems to know personally) we uncover a mysterious sign, some magic numbers, and the death of one Bartholomew Sholto, an evil twin and victim of a heinous murder! It’s up to Flex to decide whether Sherlock really is as intelligent as he claims to be.

Episode 42: The Ring of Thoth by Arthur Conan Doyle

Play
Read more

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Or to give him his full name, Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born in 1859 in Edinburgh in Scotland and he died in Crowborough, Sussex, England aged 71. 

His family name was just Doyle and Conan was his middle name but taking Ignatius and Conan together with the surname Doyle, he could hardly be anything other than of Irish Catholic heritage. His mother was Irish and though his father was born in England, he was of Irish family. 

He was born in Edinburgh and his father Charles was an alcoholic and that caused the family to fall apart. His father ended up in the famous Crichton Royal psychiatric hospital just outside Dumfries. 

Because his father could not support him, Doyle’s wealthy uncles sent him to a large Catholic school in Lancashire, which I stumbled upon one sunny night several years ago when out for a walk. Then aged 16, he went to another Catholic school at Feldkirch in Austria. Despite his Catholic upbringing, Doyle renounced Catholicism and became an ardent believer and supporter of spiritualism. He was a member of the Hampshire Society for Psychical Research and the Society for Psychical Research in London.

After his time in Austria, he went back to Edinburgh where he trained as a doctor. After graduating he worked in the south of England, setting up a practice in Southsea. Incredible as it sounds, he didn’t make money and had to become a writer to support himself. 

He also became the goalkeeper of the Portsmouth Association Football club when he was at Southsea. He also played cricket form Marylebone Cricket Club in London and then as part of the Authors XI with J M Barrie, P G Woodhouse and A A Milne. He was also a keen golfer!

He was a big supporter of vaccination. He went to study ophthalmology in Vienna but found the German too hard (though he had been a school student in Austria off course). While he was in Vienna he mainly spent his time ice skating and writing fiction.

He was a prolific writer and his first short story was published in 1879 when he was 20. He wrote his first Sherlock Holmes story when he was 27 and struggled to find a publisher for it. By the time he had written several stories he was tired of Holmes. 

Doyle was interested in many things and it is said that he wasn’t considered a great writer because he kept changing the focus of his enthusiasms, from writing to medicine, to golf to psychical research and many other subjects

The Ring of Thoth

Given what we’ve just said about Doyle’s wandering enthusiasms, it is interesting to note that is the same criticism he makes of the John Vansittart Smith hero of the Ring of Thoth. The observation adds little to the story, and has the ring of a personal anecdote. The Vansittarts were a noble English family of Dutch descent, and Doyle would probably have heard of them.

The Ring of Thoth was published in 1890 in the Cornhill Magazine. 

The Ring of Thoth was the first mummy story. If we think of our Gothic Horror and especially of our Hammer Horror tradition, we have mummies, werewolves and vampires; in some movies they even meet up and do battle!

I remember the Matell glow in the dark mummy, wolf man and other figures. My memory is hazy about the others. A friend of mine had a glow in the dark mummy and I wanted it. 

And Boris Karloff’s role in The Mummy from 1932 owes it all to The Ring of Thoth. As stories go it’s fairly straightforward. We have the learned man delving too deeply into things that should not be delved into, a little anyway. He’s not as bad as some of M R James or H P Lovecraft’s protagonists who mess with the really bad stuff. I think that’s a quote from Phil Lynott, by the way (if yous are old enough to know who that is)

Pull Out The Stops

The show is growing enormously, up 33% this month, which is fantastic, but more downloads mean more cost and if you like the show, it would really help if you could make a modest contribution, ideally via Patreon but you can always [buy me a coffee] (Tony Walker on Buy Me A Coffee) which I will then spend on podcast hosting bills and not coffee. Just so you know and in the interests of transparency

Jessie Amaolo is a librarian at the Toronto Public Library responsible for their world-class Arthur Conan Doyle collection. Not surprisingly, much of the collection is devoted to Doyle's most famous character, Sherlock Holmes. But Conan Doyle wrote much more than just the Sherlock Holmes stories. He also wrote extensively on spiritualism, true crime, history, and current events. The collection is accessed through the Marilyn & Charles Baillie Special Collections Centre on the 5th floor of the Library, near Bloor and Yonge streets in Toronto, which is where we met to discuss why the literary tourist should visit here.
