Episode Summary

EDIT
The Norwood Builder
AIRED:

A young solicitor, John Hector McFarlane, seeks Holmes's help after retired builder Jonas Oldacre dies in a fire. McFarlane, who benefits from Oldacre's will, is suspected of murder and asks Holmes to clear his name. Holmes looks for another motive and another killer, and dresses up as a tramp to get the information he needs about the Oldacre household. The surprising answer he finds is that Oldacre is not exactly dead.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Sherlock: Gentlemen: would you please join me in the call of "fire"? One, two, three: fire!
        Constables: (Halfheartedly) Fire.
        Sherlock: We can do better than that. Full voice. And together.
        All: Fire!

      • Lestrade: Mr. Holmes! I don't know whether you are playing a game with us, but surely you can tell us without all this tomfoolery.
        Holmes: I can assure you, Lestrade, I have an excellent reason for everything that I do.

      • Sherlock: You mentioned your name just now as if I should recognize it, but I can assure you, beyond the obvious facts that you are a bachelor, a solicitor, and a freemason, and an asthmatic, I know nothing about you whatever.
        (John McFarlane looks at Watson, confused and dazed.)
        Watson: Your (ahem) untidy clothes, sheaf of legal papers, watch-chain, and your somewhat irregular breathing.
