I looked up 'iatrogenic congestive cardiac failure' anyway, being an inquisitive kind of person, and it turns out that the definition of 'iatrogenic' is, "... resulting from the activity of physicians; said of any adverse condition in a patient resulting from treatment by a physician or surgeon". But there doesn't seem to be any hint of this anywhere except IMDb. Was there any controversy over his death - or have IMDb simply got it wrong?
On a different note, I actually find his TV series more absorbing, these days, than the books.
I loved Sherlock Holmes as a teenager, then didn't read any for decades, then bought the Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes a few years back. A bit of a disappointment - the stories just didn't grip me the same way as they had when I was young and I didn't really find Holmes that believable.
On the other hand, I occasionally watch an episode of the Brett-Holmes series and I find them much more entertaining than most stuff on these days - one of the few things to get me to watch telly, in fact.
If the heart failure that carried him off was related to the lithium treatment it would be correct to call it iatrogenic without there being necessarily any implication of controversy or negligence by his doctors.
His 60/day cigarette habit couldn't have helped him, either!
That 'a little learning' thing was in operation there, of course - I shouldn't look for definitions online and out of context.
Benedict is so sososo gorgeous and an awesome actor too
what more can you want?
Considering how short the short stories are the screenwriters did a great job in fleshing out the narrative while staying true to character. In this respect i believe the screen adaptation is better that the book although of course without Conan Doyle there would not have been the man "who never lived and will never die".
If you can get the complete box set and you will probably find yourself a repeat viewer just to enjoy the quality of the acting. (No I am not being paid commission by Amazon but would still thoroughly recommend this series).
Thank you Jeremy Brett for a superlative job.
