Holmes Family Christmas

Mrs. Holmes: Oh I just wish Eurus could be here to see this

Mr. Holmes: It’s alright darling, she’s in a better place

Mycroft: *looking down guiltily, thinking of his sister in a jail cell*

Sherlock: Who in the bloody heck is Eurus 

John needs change for a larger bill, so Sherlock says he might have some smaller notes. When John opens up Sherlock’s wallet to look, he see a small photo of John and Rosie from their trip to the zoo the month prior. John knew Sherlock had snapped the picture (he had Sherlock forward it to him), but he hadn’t realized at Sherlock had taken the time to print it out.

It wasn’t until later in the day, after he and Sherlock had long overdue conversation including some confessions, that John discovered the zoo picture was also Sherlock’s phone background.

Timing is Everything

The famous Cleveland Street scandal, which involved the discovery of a homosexual male brothel by London police, began in July 1889. Sex between men was illegal; clients faced persecution and social exclusion if found out.

Arthur Conan Doyle met Oscar Wilde at a publisher’s dinner in August 1889, during the height of the Cleveland Street scandal. Conan Doyle liked Wilde; afterwards he called it “a golden evening.”

The Sign of Four appeared in print in February 1890. In the story, John Watson, previously a bachelor, is presented with a potential (and eventual) wife.

The Picture of Dorian Gray was published in July 1890; the original version contained a reference to the Cleveland Street scandal. The novel was later used against Wilde at his trials for the text’s allusions to homoeroticism.
