Episode 316 – The Early Years of Sherlock Holmes

“pictures of the old masters” [ILLU] 

It's the first of our monthly Masters Class episodes for Season 7, and we're kicking off a series of three discussions of works by a single author. As a reminder, these episodes take a piece of well-regarded Sherlockian scholarship and deconstruct it.

In this case, we look to Trevor Hall and his book Sherlock Holmes: Ten Literary Studies. The first up is Hall's attempt to discern more about Sherlock Holmes's childhood years. Does he succeed?  It's just a Trifle.

If you have a suggestion for a Trifles episode, let us know at trifles @ If you use your idea on the air, we'll send you some Sherlockian goodies.
