    Oh, my God Helen It was the band The speckled band The Adventure of the Speckled Band is one of the most ingenious of the 56 short stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about his fictional detective Sherlock Holmes The author himself considered this one to be his best Sherlock Holmes story It is now published as the eighth of the twelve stories collected inThe Adventures of Sherlock Holmes , although it was first published in February 1892, inThe Strandmagazine A few years lateOh, my God Helen It was the band The speckled band The Adventure of the Speckled Band is one of the most ingenious of the 56 short stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about his fictional detective Sherlock Holmes The author himself considered this one to be his best Sherlock Holmes story It is now published as the eighth of the twelve stories collected inThe Adventures of Sherlock Holmes , although it was first published in February 1892, inThe Strandmagazine A few years later, in August 1905, it was published in the USA sNew York World , under the title,The Spotted Band.Mulling over the lastseventy oddcases, Watson sets the stage for relating this one,I cannot recall any which presentedsingular features than that which was associated with the well known Surrey family of the Roylotts of Stoke Moranadding a little later,there are widespread rumours as to the death of Dr Grimesby Roylott which tend to make the matter eventerrible than the truthSo the reader finds themself just a couple of paragraphs in, and hooked already Dr Watson remembers back to early April 1883 He had been unexpectedly woken at 7 15am by Sherlock Holmes, who was usually himself a late riser The case was, Holmes stressed, urgent A young lady was at that moment in their sitting room, pale and drawn, and literally shaking with fear Holmes observes that she is around thirty, dressed in black with a black veil, and strands of premature grey in her hair Although she is desperate for help, she apologises, saying that she cannot pay Holmes anything now, but promising Holmes that she will soon be married and have control of her own income She further names the person by whom she has heard of the great detective, to convince him of her credentials Of course, the matter of payment is no problem for our gallant detective He has been analysing clues about the woman before him as she speaks, and already knows a fair bit about her Coupled with the reference which he quickly checks in his case book, this is enough for him to be intrigued by the case, as are we The woman, Helen Stoner, tells them that she and her twin sister, Julia, are living with their stepfather, Dr Roylott, who is now the last living member of a once great English family The Roylotts once controlled huge estates, but their descendants are now impoverished, apart from the old house they all live in, which is now heavily mortgaged The tension cranks up notch by notch as Helen Stoner tells her story.Dr Grimesby Roylott had emigrated to India as soon as he obtained his medical degree, and he managed to establish a thriving practice there in Calcutta He also married the widow of a Major General in the Bengal Artillery, a Mrs Stoner, who had a considerable amount of money of her own view spoiler Dr Grimesby Roylott, we learn, is not only amoral but has a violent temper He spent many years in India with his new wife, plus her two children from her previous marriage During this time their house was robbed He instantly flew into a rage, blaming his Indian butler, and was sent to prison for killing him The family eventually returned to England, whereupon Helen Stoner s mother died tragically in a railway accident She left quite a lot of money one thousand pounds per year which seemed ample for them, all to live on Some of this money would go to the daughters on their marriage.However, since the death of their mother eight years earlier, Dr Roylott has changed He has grown increasingly violent, and no servants would stay in the house anyHe has wild animals from India, such as a cheetah and a baboon, which he allows to roam freely over the estate He has frightened away all the neighbours, and his only friends are now a group of gypsies The two young women have grown to fear their stepfather, and exactly two weeks before the day when Julia was to be married she mysteriously died, calling out to her sister,Oh, my God Helen It was the band The speckled bandhide spoiler The story is masterly in the nuggets of information it slowly reveals It is virtually impossible to ascertain what can have happened Dr Grimesby Roylott himself comes to see Sherlock Holmes and presents a terrifying spectacle, the perfect foil to Holmes s suave urbanity, as he expostulates, shaking his hunting crop at Holmes,I know you, you scoundrel I have heard of you before You are Holmes the meddler My friend smiled Holmes the busybody His smile broadened Holmes the Scotland Yard jack in office Holmes chuckled heartily Your conversation is most entertaining, said he We learn of alterations to the house, we think we see a perfect motive for a crime, yet still we cannot deduce it from the information given On Sherlock Holmes s visit to the house, he isolates three significant factors view spoiler a bed anchored to the floor, a bell cord that does not work, and a ventilator hole between Helen s room and that of Dr Grimesby Roylott hide spoiler From these he knows all, although the reader would probably need to equal his genius to do so Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s inspiration for this story may have been an article published in February 1891, inCassell s Saturday JournalBeware the title in the next spoiler gives away the ending view spoilerCalled on by a Boa Constrictor A West African Adventureis about a Portugese trader who stays in a remote camp in West Africa On the first night in the cabin, he is awoken by a creaking sound, and seesa dark queer looking thing hanging down through the ventilator above itThis then has the same premise, but Conan Doyle switched the boa constrictor for aswamp adder , a variety of snake which he invented for the purpose of the story hide spoiler Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself wrote a stage play based onThe Speckled BandIt was a great success and ran for 169 performances at theAdelphi Theatrebefore transferring to theGlobe , and subsequently went on to tour England This was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s third stage play and the second Sherlock Holmes dramatisation.Not only does the story have a perfect structure, a story within a story, with a build up of tension mounting alongside, as we learn the characters and personalities involved Not only is this a perfect example of a closed room mystery , of which Conan Doyle was to write four in total This was his own personal favourite, perhaps because it also contains several of the recurring themes we see in many of the Sherlock Holmes stories There is a wellbred young woman in distress, an overbearing and vulgar man, a connection with an exotic overseas country, both in location, people and animals, a problem steeped in history, a country house, a close observation of unusual architectural features, either thieves, gypsies , or vagabonds, an aristocratic family But most of all, there is a problem, the solution to which is fiendishly convoluted, yet when explained, makes perfect logical sense It also, as a bonus, has an ethically satisfying, although not strictly legal, ending Subtle enough and horrible enough When a doctor does go wrong, he is the first of criminals
