  • Trivia

    • "The Imposter", aka Mr. Bellingbrook, aka Sherlock Holmes is called Tony Simmons by his henchman.

    • Holmes and Watson vacationed for a week in Brighton.

    • Holmes deduces that "Bellingbrook" is not a real reporter because neither the seat of his pants nor the elbows of his coat are shiny from sitting at a desk, and his spectacles contain merely ordinary glass.

  • Quotes

    • (Sir Arthur Treadley has stormed in and begun yelling at Holmes over the bad advice he got last week)
      Holmes: Yes, why don't you introduce yourself.
      Sir Arthur Treadley: Introduce? Mr. Holmes, what tomfoolery is this now?
      Holmes: You know my name, Sir. I wish I were equally informed as to yours.
      Sir Arthur Treadley: Do you mean to sit there and pretend you don't know who I am?
      Holmes: I not only do not know who you are, Sir, but I think I prefer it.

    • Lestrade: One thing more, Wilkins. If anything goes wrong tonight, do you know with whom the responsibility will lie?
      Wilkins: Well, I'd hardly like to say, sir. You're in enough difficulty as it is, sir.
