Default Victorian Sherlock Episode Ripper Case

The BBC1 TV show Sherlock had a new 90 minute episode January 1st. The show is usually a modern interpretation of Doyle's canon, but "The Abominable Bride", this special episode, takes place in Victorian Times.

Even if it's not your kind of thing, it's worth watching just for the Victoriana... but there's a little more than that!

There are a few "Easter Eggs" for Ripperologists. I'll just post a couple:

I have to say I was slightly disappointed with the Sherlock special I feel it didn't hang together well. The plot seemed muddled.

It reminded me of the Royal Conspiracy Theory!

Yes, agreed. Apparently it was all taking place in modern-day Sherlock's "mind palace" as he tried to solve a case in his drug-induced haze, using the old case as an analogy (or something). They made it part of the set-up for next season, instead of a stand-alone story.

Apparently the writers took the title from one of the dozens of non-story, story references of the Holmes-Watson adventures that were never written up. In this case the unwritten story was called , "Riconetti of the club foot, and his abominable wife." Here it was called "The Adventure of the Abominable Wife", whose name is Emily Riconetti. The story was curious, and fit into how the modern series ended with Holmes being brought back from a legal exile after what would be termed a "public service" murder he commits. He has to understand how one of his foes apparently survived to return to England, and he is recalling the earlier case (from 1895), which hinged on the same situation.

^^ "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!)
