New article about Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes at “‘Sherlock Holmes’ makes the detective a troubled action hero” claims the villain, Lord Blackwood, is inspired by Aleister Crowley.

“… the film, which hits theaters on Christmas Day, follows none of Conan Doyle’s stories, which were deemed too small, but presents Holmes battling the ominous Lord Blackwood, a figure inspired by the Victorian occultist Aleister Crowley.”
