“there never was a man who deserved punishment more” [IDEN] 



There are certain instances in the Sherlock Holmes stories where the villain is so foul, so deserving of punishment, that it's a relief to see them get theirs. It's justice served.

We can think of a couple, off the tops of our heads. Perhaps you have others in mind? It's just a Trifle.

“This is unworthy of you, Holmes” [SIGN] 




Sherlock Holmes wasn't an easy man to live with. Still, it's impressive that Watson didn't unload on him more frequently. Or perhaps he did and just didn't report it...

What is it about Holmes's personality that made him caustic? And about Watson's that allowed him to endure it. It's just a Trifle.

“accomplished, a wonder woman in every way” [ILLU]  



Each month, we look at a piece of Sherlockian or Holmesian scholarship that might be outside of your ken, and discuss its merits or faults. This month, we look at Mollie Hardwick's "Women of the Canon: 1 - Women of Influence" from The Sherlock Holmes Journal, Vol. 10, No. 1 (Summer, 1972).

Hardwick thought it was worth delving into who some of the powerful women were who were not Irene Adler. Is one of your favorites discussed? It's just a Trifle.

“I do not feel justified in doing it” [HOUN] 



In the last episode, we talked about the uncertainty of justice at the conclusion of some stories. Did the perpetrators find justice raining down on them? In some cases, it was left up to the reader's imagination.

This episode we're looking at some instances of justice that may not have been in proportion to the crime – or non crime, as the case may be.  It's just a Trifle.
