 the great black-faced monkey of the Himalayan slopes,” [CREE] 



It's only mentioned in passing, but the langur played an important role in "The Aventure of the Creeping Man." It showed you could make a monkey out of Professor Presbury.

In this episode, we begin a monthly series on exotic animals. What do we know of langurs? Or of the other choices at hand during that time? It seems like a peculiar choice, but then again, it's just a Trifle.

“His life as been academic” [CREE] 

*Not a professor


Sherlock Holmes and academic affairs are, well, elementary. [Sorry] But have you considered those who hold the title "professor" when it comes to the stories?

Of course you know Professor Moriarty. But there are only two others, which is a tad surprising, given the stories that involved the academy. It's just a Trifle.

 you could not celebrate him without being known yourself.” [HOUN]

Every year, the Baker Street Irregulars meet in early January to celebrate Sherlock Holmes's birthday. Why January, or more specifically January 6? It's an interesting story.

We discuss what factors may support that supposition and highlight the scholarship that helped us arrive at this date. It's just a Trifle.
