Episode 356 – Tigers

“bag of tigers” [EMPT] 

We continue to clean up and cover a few more animals that we missed in previous seasons. The tiger was another foreign curiosity for Victorians, being native to Asia – from the Russian Far East through parts of North Korea, China, India, and Southeast Asia to Sumatra (yes, that Sumatra).

While tigers in the Sherlock Holmes stories are few and far between, they're certainly mentioned. As nicknames, behaviors, pastimes, and decorations, to be specific. But where exactly? 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.
