But he is always wrong. The hero of these stories is not Rupert, but his older brother, Basil Grant, a retired judge. In each case, Basil proves to Rupert that there has been no crime and no crooks. The brothers, Rupert and Basil, are perhaps inspired by two real life brothers: Cecil Chesterton and his older brother, Gilbert. He went through the world, as it were, as if he were always on the top of a omnibus or waiting for a train. He also reinforces the stereotype of himself as someone who is not bothered with facts as long as he gets the conclusions right.
Rupert, on the other hand, has a certain brashness and overconfidence that is usually his undoing. We can imagine a young Cecil Chesterton doing just that, especially the practicing in the bedroom, while a patient and amused older brother Gilbert indulged him as they were growing up. Well, that would be giving too much away. This is detective fiction, after all.
