Not Significant Enough Says Tessa Jowell 18 February 2007

Posted by David in Comment.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes books, is “not significant enough” to merit the Grade-I listing of his home in Surrey. According to Wikipedia, Sherlock Holmes is the most portrayed fictional character on film, having been played by no fewer than 75 actors in 211 movies since 1900. Whilst this is apparently not a significant enough contribution to our culture, Tennyson’s was enough for the Department of Culture, Media & Sport to list his Grandmother’s home. Below is the greatest picture of Tessa Jowell ever taken.
