To write an introduction for Sherlock Holmes is a daunting task, it’s akin to writing an introduction to Shakespeare. The influence of Holmes is everywhere and in every culture on the globe. In the literature of Western Civilization, it’d be reasonable to state that Homes’ influence pales only in comparison to the Bible and Shakespeare. Holmes is quoted in productions as diverse as Star Trek VI and the Glenn Beck program.

The basic facts of Holmes are well-known to nearly every literate person on the globe. He was the creation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and made appearances in fifty-six short stories and four novels. He solved cases from 221B Baker Street in London with the assistance of his faithful companion, Dr. Watson. Holmes became so popular that Doyle couldn’t get away with killing him.

Holmes is one of the few true timeless characters in literature. His canonical adventures may have been set in the late 19 th and early 20 th centuries, but in the hands of a competent author, with a few modifications, Holmes could show up at a medieval castle or on a starship and still be a powerful character.

The departing 59-year-old Time Lord labelled his successor a "wonderful actress" and wished her success in the BBC sci-fi programme.

Capaldi gushed: “Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker's work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm.

“As a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you're told you can and can't be."

Latin American culture and bilingualism are becoming more and more mainstream every day, but this was not always the case as you moved north of the Rio Grande. As much as America wants to present itself as a melting pot, American culture is not always willing to accept change, although a girl with a pretty face and music that is good to dance to helps enormously.

Maria Elena “Lina” Romay was born in Brooklyn in 1919. Her father was a diplomat who worked as an attache' in the Los Angeles Mexican consulate office.
