Canon Thursday: Outrageous Holmes

During the course of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 60 stories starring Sherlock Holmes, the world’s only consulting detective does some fairly outrageous things. Among them are faking serious illness, faking death, becoming engaged to a maid, fooling his best friend into thinking he’s someone else, and taking part in Irene Adler’s wedding.

Reichenbach notwithstanding, I tend to think that Holmes’s fake engagement is probably his most outrageous moment in terms of doing something out of character for the sake of a case.

What’s your pick for Holmes’s most outrageous canon moment? Let me know in the comments.
