Doyle had decided that these would be the last collection of Holmes's stories, and intended to kill him off in "The Final Problem". Reader demand stimulated him to write another Holmes adventure—The Hound of the Baskervilles. In "The Return of Sherlock Holmes", Holmes relates the aftermath of "The Final Problem", and how he survived.

It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat. The literary cult of Sherlock Holmes shows no sign of fading with time as each new generation comes to love and revere the penetrating mind and ruthless logic which were the undoing of so many Victorian master criminals.

Im November des Jahres 1887 ist der ehemalige Armeearzt Dr. John Watson glücklich verheiratet und Inhaber einer florierenden Arztpraxis. Deshalb wohnt er nicht mehr in der Bakerstreet 221b, pflegt jedoch weiterhin freundschaftlichen Kontakt zu seinem einstigen Wohngenossen Sherlock Holmes. Umso entsetzter ist er deshalb, als er eines Tages von Mrs. Hudson, der Hauswirtin seines Freundes, aufgesucht wird. Die gute Frau erklärt weinend, der Meisterdetektiv liege wohl im Sterben. Er habe seit drei Tagen sein Bett nicht verlassen und sehe entsetzlich aus. Auf seine entsetzte Nachfrage, warum er denn nicht sofort verständigt worden wäre, erklärt Mrs. Hudson, Holmes habe es ihr verboten. Erst heute habe sie sich energisch durchzusetzen vermocht, indem sie erklärte, nicht gewillt zu sein, ihrem Mieter so einfach beim Sterben zuzusehen. Daraufhin habe dieser erklärt, wenn es denn schon ein Arzt sein müsse, dann wolle er seinen Freund Dr. Watson hier bei sich haben. Dieser zögert natürlich keine Sekunde! Er packt sofort alles Notwendige zusammen, schließt die Praxis, und eilt gemeinsam mit seiner ehemaligen Vermieterin per Droschke in die Bakerstreet. Dort, in der einst gemeinsamen Wohnung angekommen, bietet sich ihm ein Bild des Grauens: Holmes liegt tatsächlich im Nachtgewand zu Bett, stöhnt, redet wirres Zeug daher, und zeigt auch äußerlich alle Zeichen einer schweren Erkrankung. Aber er will Dr. Watson nicht an sich heranlassen. Ja! Er verbietet seinem Freund und einstigen Mitbewohner mit energischer Stimme und unter Androhung des sofortigen Hinauswurfs aus der Wohnung, sich ihm zu nähern. Er, also der Doktor, habe sicherlich noch nichts von den Krankheiten gehört, welche unter den asiatischen Kulis wüten, die zahlreich in den Londoner Docks und Hafenanlagen arbeiten. Dort hat Holmes im Zuge eines Falles, an welchem er aktuell arbeitet, Ermittlungen angestellt. Und dabei muss er sich wohl mit einer dieser "Kulikrankheiten" infiziert haben.
