In my mind Sherlock Holmes is a far more superior detective than Nancy Drew. Sherlock Holmes has incredible powers of deduction perhaps only rivaled by Dupin (a character of Edgar Allen Poe's). Holmes is a master chemist and he applies that science to all of his cases whether it be identifying the differences between various types of tobacco or identifying where in London a patch of dirt came from. Holmes is an accomplished fencer, boxer (if memory serves me correctly), and has great taste in hats (well, maybe?). Sure he has some problems like his addiction to cocaine but give Nancy Drew some time.

Most importantly, I am writing this half jokingly so any contenders must be light hearted about the topic at hand. Thank you.

Nancy Drew is a woman. She's a rebel. She's amazing. I <3 Nancy Drew. You should love her too. Why don't you?

I admire strong women as much as you do. However, what big case has she solved? Sherlock Holmes risks his life all the time, dealing with some of the most dangerous men in London. He solves murders, conspiracies, and disputes. I guess I can give Nancy drew credit for um...discovering who an old clock belonged to?

Also, in reference to the new Nancy Drew movie where she finds her way to Los Angeles: Sherlock Holmes could have solved that case in half the time.

In conclusion, while both Holmes and Drew are both great sleuths, Holmes is the superior detective..
