The Real Sherlock

Bob Horridge

I was lucky enough recently to be invited by BBC’s The One Show to appear in a short film about Jerome Caminada, Victorian Manchester’s most famous detective and a true-life inspiration for Sherlock Holmes. Caminada’s life is the subject of a gripping book by Manchester author Angela Buckley, entitled The Real Sherlock Holmes. Caminada’s arch-enemy, his real-life Moriarty, was the Angel Meadow “cracksman” Bob Horridge, who was known throughout the land as a fearless armed robber and an expert safe-breaker. But did Caminada, like the fictional Sherlock, finally get his man? Watch the film here to find out.
