Hemyock, Maurice. Maurice Hemyock was created by Douglas G. Browne (Inspector Thew, Harvey Tuke) and appeared in four short story collections and novels from 1930 to 1937, beginning with Uncle William.

Maurice Hemyock is a Fop. Major Maurice Hemyock is an upper class British archaeologist. He is a natty dresser, wears a monocle, and is scornful of things like plus-fours. Despite this, he is a competent crime-solver, and the police, in the person of Superintendent Myrtle, seem happy to come crawling to him for help in solving crimes, despite his apparent contempt for them.
