Derek Johnson says that the term franchise has become “cultural short-hand for understanding the expansion of cultural production across different media and industry sectors”. From this perspective, it makes sense to speak of a Holmes franchise, since texts featuring the character appear across all media and across all industry sectors. However, this franchise differs from others such as Star Wars or Harry Potter because it lacks a central and coordinating holder of the intellectual property. My contribution will explore the implications of Holmes’ copyright status for the production, circulation, and reception of Holmes texts in the early 21st century. I will argue that the lack of a guiding corporate hand results in extremely divergent representations of the storyworld and character across different media platforms.
