Forever TV show. Dr. Henry Morgan (actor Ioan Gruffudd) is a New York City medical examiner. He studies the dead for criminal cases and to solve the mystery of his own immortality.
Sherlock Holmes studied Chemistry. He went to the University and lives with John Watson, a physician, and the friend who narrates his adventures. Anyway, he first developed his methods of deduction as an undergraduate. His earliest cases, which he pursued as an amateur, came from fellow university students.

When Dr. Henry Morgan dies, he disappears almost immediately, but returns to life in a nearby body of water without clothes.

Sherlock Holmes also dies in ‘The Final Problem’ but he reappears in ‘The Adventure of the Empty House’, set in 1894. Then, Holmes explains to an astonished Watson that he had faked his death in ‘The Final Problem’ to fool his enemies.

Only antiquarian Abe (actor Judd Hirsch), whom Dr. Henry Morgan and his former wife Abigail found as a newborn in a concentration camp during IIWW, knows Morgan’s truth.
Sherlock Holmes only trusts in Dr. Watson.

Now, Dr. Henry Morgan is followed by a murderer, “Adam”, who has learned his secret, and claims to have had the same “curse” for 2,000 years.

Sherlock Holmes’ enemy is Moriarty. He knows his secrets and follows untiringly Holmes.

His long life has given Dr. Henry Morgan broad knowledge and remarkable observation skills which impress most people he encounters.

In ‘A Study in Scarlet,’ Holmes’ abilities are described by Watson:

1. Knowledge of Literature – nil.

2. Knowledge of Philosophy – nil.

3. Knowledge of Astronomy – nil.

4. Knowledge of Politics – Feeble.

5. Knowledge of Botany – Variable. Well up in belladonna, opium and poisons generally. Knows nothing of practical gardening.

6. Knowledge of Geology – Practical, but limited. Tells at a glance different soils from each other. After walks, has shown me splashes upon his trousers, and told me by their colour and consistence in what part of London he had received them.

7. Knowledge of Chemistry – Profound.

8. Knowledge of Anatomy – Accurate, but unsystematic.

9. Knowledge of Sensational Literature – Immense. He appears to know every detail of every horror perpetrated in the century.

10. Plays the violin well.

11. Is an expert singlestick player, boxer and swordsman.

12. Has a good practical knowledge of British law.
