    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Blythe: Indeed, your orbital development is so pronounced, that a cast of your skull would be an ornament to any museum such as this.
        Dr Bell: Thank you, I am not quite ready to donate it.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Tricky Crimes Are Simple

        Dr. Bell: (to Dr. Turnavine) It is generally true that the more flamboyant crimes afford the easiest solutions.

        Variations on this theme, spoken by the character who inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to create Sherlock Holmes, appear repeatedly in the Doyle canon. For example, from his story The Red-Headed League:

        Sherlock Holmes: As a rule, the more bizarre a thing is the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify.

      • Phrenology

        Mr. Blythe's request for a cast of Dr. Bell's skull as a suitable ornament to Blythe's museum echoes an exchange between Dr. Mortimer and Sherlock Holmes in Chapter 1 of Doyle's novel The Hound of the Baskervilles.

      • Solitary Cyclist

        Heather Grace's report of being followed through the woods by the mysterious vanishing cyclist, Arthur Conan Doyle's attempt to observe the stranger, and Dr. Bell's criticism of Doyle's hiding place and technique are all virtually identical to events concerning Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson and client Miss Violet Smith in Doyle's short-story The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist.
