^^ "The Abominable Bride" not "Wife", Mayerling. Yes, I also thought there was an echo of Holmes' mysterious cases, which, he told Watson, "the world is not yet ready for", lol.

"The Giant Rat of Sumatra" was referred to in a old "Doctor Who" episode called "The Talons of Weng-Chiang." But I have always liked "the curious story of James Pellimore, who stepped back into his house for his umbrella one morning, and was never seen again." (Definitely a set-up for a Whovian adventure!)
