      Dear Philip k. Jones and Holmesians,
      I think that by that score, there is no gainsaying the fact that Sherlock Holmes has spawned the most imitations till now. Sherlock Holmes has become the template for a detective.Any authour who has radically differed from it, had done it only for the novelty,rather than a need for it.

      It may though fairly be pointed out that the pioneer of this template of a detective and a slightly dense sidekick who is also the narrator was of Edgar Allen Poe.

      Sir Arthur Conan Doyle perfected the form and no authour hence has been able to improve upon it or even come close to it, in terms of appeal.
