Check out the Canonical references in this episode

Steven Moffat included a number of nods to Arthur Conan Doyle's Canon in this modern update of A Scandal in Bohemia.

Re: Check out the Canonical references in this episode

In case you (or anyone) is interested, here is an adaptation of “A Scandal in Bohemia” from the 80's Granada series with Jeremy Brett. Irene Adler is being played by Gayle Hunnicut and here she is an opera singer rather a dominatrix. Watching it you can see the differences and similarities between “Bohemia” and “Belgravia.” Both of them had special safe in their house to protect their photos (though in the case of  “Sherlock”, the photos were on Irene’s phone). In this original story it ends with Irene outsmarting Holmes but in “Sherlock” she does it in the beginning (and then again during the last act). Still, I will state that I have loved both versions equally.

Re: Check out the Canonical references in this episode

I'm not sure where to post this, but it is clearly an very interesting Doyle-reference, despite of  so-called "Johnlock" background.


Men should be what they seem, 
Or those that be not, would they might seem none!
