“Going for a swim, I see.” [LION]  


How many swimmers do we encounter in the Sherlock Holmes stories? Given that only one story is centered around an ill-fated swim, you might think you know the answer.

Then again, you might be mistaken. Allow us to turn over the Canon in our minds for other references to swimming. And what do we know about swimming habits in the late Victorian / early Edwardian era? It's just a trifle.

“you had been out in vile weather” [SCAN]  


Think about the number of times we come across inclement weather in the Sherlock Holmes stories. It's almost like the cliched "It was a dark and stormy night."

How often do we find that harsh weather conditions run parallel to some tempestuous conditions in various Canonical households?  It's just a trifle.

“It is always awkward doing business with an alias.” [BLUE]  


Back in Episode 96, we chatted about the many disguises and other identities of Sherlock Holmes. But what about other people in the Canon who played dress-up?

Whether they were trying to dupe one of his clients or Sherlock Holmes himself, these individuals each had good reasons to be incognito. It's just a trifle.

“this young stranger from Canada” [HOUN]  


Canadians are so polite. Why, Sir Henry barely complained of being killed by his family's legendary spectral hound.

Where do we find Canadians and Canadian influences in the Sherlock Holmes stories? There aren't terribly many instances, but there are just enough to be a Trifle.
