7 James Bond and Sherlock Holmes

The very best of Britishness

Who are the most familiar literary figures in British literature that Chinese people are most obsessed with? James Bond and Sherlock Holmes. What do these two have in common? Well, both are fictional characters and both appear significantly more "powerful" than mere commoners. One is a secret service agent with the code number 007 and a licence to kill, while the other is an expert in the science of deduction, whose lifetime passion is solving puzzles and murders. One thing that proves the pair are successful cultural products the UK has given to the world is that movies and TV dramas adapted from novels featuring them can create waves of attention all over the world.[Photo/IC]
