Arthur Conan Doyle
Race: Human
Home Planet: Earth
Home Era: 19th century
Appearances:

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a writer most well-known for the books about the detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle fictionalized the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. (NA: All-Consuming Fire)

In 1880, Doyle aided the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith, though the Doctor suspected that they may have met before. (MA: Evolution) In 1902, he met the Doctor and aided the Doctor again. (NSA: Revenge of the Judoon) Some years later, he examined the famous Cottingley fairy photos and pronounced them genuine. (TW: Small Worlds)

Minor references

As a doctor, he accompanied Redvers Fenn-Cooper on an expedition to observe giant reptiles which resembled dinosaurs, though at first he had trouble believing they existed. The implication is that this would be an inspiration for The Lost World. (DW: Ghost Light)

Behind the Scenes

Though Jack Harkness implies in Small Worlds that such a hard-minded skeptic would have trouble accepting the Cottingley fairy photos, in reality, in his later years he accepted the existence of the supernatural, including the literal existence of fairies.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a human author who resided in England in the 19th and early 20th centuries. His most famous works were the Sherlock Holmes short stories and novels, which remained popular well into the 24th century. (TNG episode: "Lonely Among Us")

Amanda Grayson and Spock of Vulcan were descendants of Doyle's. (TOS movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

This is an assumption based on Spock's claim that an ancestor was responsible for the quote, "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
