From blood to ballistics to fingerprints, Sherlock Holmes was 120 years ahead of his time. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s great detective is still infamous today for the rigorous nature of his investigative methods, protecting crime scenes from contamination, looking for minute traces of evidence and searching for what the eye couldn’t see.

Two-hour documentary How Sherlock Changed the World is set to premiere on this December and will explore the real-world impact of history’s most famous fictional detective, including his effect on the continued development of forensic and investigative procedures, even during the present day. The film will feature noted forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee, who is often referred to as something of a modern-day Holmes himself.
