Episode 321 – Real-Life Inspirations: A Scandal in Bohemia

the title by which I have just called myself is not exactly my own” [SCAN] 

We're treated to a variety of colorful characters in the Sherlock Holmes canon. Some are figments of Conan Doyle's imagination while others are dangerously close to historical figures.

We took at look at a few names in "A Scandal in Bohmeia" and made some educated guesses about who or what was behind people like the Atkinson brothers, the King of Bohemia, and yes, Irene Adler. It's just a Trifle.
