Stashed in: Are You Not Entertained?, Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch!

An exemplar of logic who lives by guesswork, a man who stands apart from other human beings but who is moved by a sense of human decency, Holmes embodies the modern romance of reason - a myth we no longer believe in, but find it hard to live without.

It's good to have a hero whose superpower is reason.
