Controversies regarding Enola Holmes
In June, the estate of “Sherlock Holmes” author Arthur Conan Doyle accused Netflix, among others, over the film, arguing that the show’s depiction of Sherlock Holmes as kind, caring and respectful of women is a degradation of the author’s copyright.
The film is based on a series of novels by Nancy Springer, who created the character of Enola. Conan Doyle’s estate claimed that Sherlock was only ever kind and emotional in books that are still under the author’s copyright. In earlier works his aloofness and lack of understanding are crucial aspects of his character. These must be respected in any adaptation, the estate claimed.
The estate filed a case against Netflix, the US-based producers, Springer, her publisher Penguin Random House, and others in the US District Court for the District of New Mexico. CNN contacted Netflix, Springer and Penguin Random House, the books’ publisher, for comment.
Conan Doyle died in 1930 after publishing dozens of stories about his legendary detective. Since his death, “Sherlock Holmes” has formed the cornerstone of numerous films and TV series, including the popular BBC version, “Sherlock,” which starred Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role.
