Episode 332 – Police Precautions

“Why not take police precautions against him?” [FINA] 


When reading "The Final Problem," it's difficult not to be caught off-guard. After all, it opens with Watson telling us these are the last words he'll write about Sherlock Holmes.

But when we step back and look at the story with sober eyes, we realize that the police story Holmes tells Watson just doesn't add up. And 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.
