Definition by Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English
Listen to the example in the conversation below:
Watson: Who are you? What do you do?
Sherlock: What do you think?
Watson: I’d say private detective…
Watson: …but the police don’t go to private detectives.
Sherlock: I’m a consulting detective. The only one in the world. I invented the job.
Watson: What does it mean?
Sherlock: It means when the police are out of their depth, which is always, they consult me.
