Dodd, Cedric. Cedric Dodd was created by Kenneth Livingston and appeared in six short stories and two story collections and novels from 1933 to 1936, beginning with The Dodd Cases.

Cedric Dodd is an English consulting detective who is Watsoned by journalist and novelist Gregory Pierce. (Dodd uses Pierce’s flat to interview prospective clients). Dodd, a former physician, is energetic, brisk, and bulky tending toward stout. Among his cases are a twin brother murdering his twin and an actor murdered backstage during a play (complete with the butler being suspected of having done it). Dodd is consulted by the police and generally treated respectfully by them, a feeling he reciprocates.
