John H. Watson, M.D.
Sherlock Holmes never actually says ?Elementary, my dear Watson? in any of Doyle?s stories? Other actors who have played Dr. Watson include James Mason (Murder by Decree, 1979, with Christopher Plummer as Holmes), Patrick Macnee (Incident at Victoria Falls, 1991, with Christopher Lee as Holmes) and Ben Kingsley (Without a Clue, 1988, with Michael Caine as a bumbling Holmes)? According to A Study in Scarlet, James Watson received a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of London in 1878, and was ?struck on the shoulder by a Jezail bullet? while serving with the British Army in Afghanistan? Dr. Watson is no relation to real-life musician Doc Watson.
