"He [Sherlock Holmes] is without doubt the most famous detective in print and on film. He has been with us for generations and is constantly remade and retold. He became more widely known than his author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and thousands even believe he actually existed as a real man and lived in Baker Street, London. But there is another character in the stories that is often neglected and misunderstood - Dr. Watson. What is the secret of this seemingly unassuming man? Where did the influences used by Doyle come from? Is Watson a mirror to elements of Conan Doyle himself? "--Container.

What might have been an interesting idea- the source material of Doctor Watson- completely unravels under what ends up being nothing more than an amateurish documentary that runs off in all sorts of directions. Aside from using stock footage from older Holmes films, the bulk of the documentary is all over the place, with one notion after another that goes off in various paths, all leading away from the character himself. The production values are abysmal, to be frank. This should be avoided in favour of documentary work by filmmakers who actually care about doing their personal best.
