Thanks. Title: The Detective at Sea Fandom: Sherlock Holmes "There is a reason," Admiral Dennison said, "that Her Majesty's naval vessels don't typically host civilian 'consultants' such as yourself, Mr. Holmes." My friend gave a short nod. "I see several reasons. First, there are no other 'consultants,' as you say, like me. I remain disappointingly unique. Second, I would find the sheer monotony of life aboard a ship stultifying. Within a day, I would be in need of heavy narcotics. Within a week, I would have murdered or been murdered." "The latter, most probably," I added. Holmes and the admiral turned toward me, but neither of them contradicted me.
