Let’s see what we can find about the crimes that Sherlock solved/investigated after his return. From the crime wall:
1. Lion’s Mane (Yup):
Sherlock investigated (or at least started looking into) the case of Lion’s Mane after he returned. Of course, I might have combined two or more cases in this image. But I am going on an assumption that since the papers are tacked nearly on top of each other and separate from others, they all relate to Lion’s Mane. The way I see it is, the photograph next to the news is that of a man, who (most likely same man) is standing by his car at sea-side in the bottom photograph.
#1 Lion’s Mane is ACD canon
#2 Trial By Twitter reminded me of Moffat’s woes with the social network. He also makes a slam to twitter in the Doctor Who episode, “The Bells of Saint John.”
#3 Monkey Glands is ACD canon reference to “The Adventure of the Creeping Man" where Professor Presbury takes langurs extract as a kind of Viagra. Amusing scene in Brett.
#4 Molsey Murder (? — probably finalproblem is right…)
#5 War of the Wor(lds) Pun on Orson Welles’s “War of the Worlds?”
#6 Cereal Killer Pun.Ha ha!
#7Dressed to Kill I think this is the Basil Rathbone movie — Angelo is a ref. to DtK as well.
#8 The Show Ax ?
a) West End ?
b) -ration Hex ?
c) Dead Man Talking Kind of what corpses do…
d) Did Diana Commit Suicide? Princess Diana, presumably.
