Episode 159 – The Date of The Sign of Four

“As to your dates, that is the biggest mystification of all.” [CREE]  

With Season 4, we're starting a new monthly series that we're calling "Mr. Sherlock Holmes the Theorist." Each month, we'll be taking a look at what some early Sherlockian scholars had to say about certain trifling elements in the Sherlock Holmes stories.

In this case, we're looking at "The Date of The Sign of Four" from H.W. Bell's Baker Street Studies, first published in 1934. Bell wrote one of the earliest chronologies of the Canon. Was he right? It's just a trifle.
