Unfortunately, though, Sam Claflin, who played Mycroft Holmes, the oldest of the Holmes siblings; a government employee and Enola’s legal guardian, in the first movie, may not be returning to Enola Holmes 2.
Is Enola Holmes Based on a True Story?
No, Enola Holmes isn’t based on a true story. However, the story in the first movie is based on the first book in the young adult book series of the same name by Nancy Springer. The story of the movie is about Sherlock Holmes’ sister named Enola, who travels to London to find her missing mother and gets into a thrilling adventure where she teams up with a runaway lord to solve a mystery that threatens the entire country.
The series consists of seven books, the first of which, entitled The Case of Missing Marquess, was published in 2007 and was nominated for an Edgar Award along with the 5th book.
The names of the books in the series in chronological order:
The Case of the Missing Marquess, The Case of the Left-Handed Lady, The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets, The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan, The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline, The Case of the Gypsy Goodbye, and the last one, Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche, which was published in 2021.
The main characters and settings were borrowed from the original Sherlock Holmes novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but the character of Enola, whose name ironically means “alone” when read backwards, was created by Springer herself. Because of the age gap between Sherlock and Enola – Sherlock is 20 years older than her – Springer decided that Enola should be a “mistake child” because she didn’t want her to be Sherlock’s daughter.
