5th June 2012
Set by sherlockskitty
1. There is one main similarity between BBC s The Great Game (Jim Moriarty) and with Hounds Of Baskerville (Bob Frankland)) What did those men give to Sherlock? (Hint it has to do with a certain kind of number)
2. In BBC s Hounds episode, John noticed a receipt for Meat Supplies at the vegetarian restaurant. The first word on that paper has a connection to a name that is familiar to Arthur Conan Doyle (and his followers). What is it?
3. There s a dog in Arthur Conan Doyle s canon story The Sign Of Four and in the 1986 movie called The Great Mouse Detective with the same name. What is the dog s name?
4. What two creators/writers of BBC s Sherlock also write for Doctor Who?
5. There is one similarity between BBC s Scandal in Belgravia (The driver of the backfiring car) and Doyle s story called The Priory School (The Headmaster/teacher). What did both men do, upon arriving at 221B Baker Street?
6. In BBC s Great Game, there s something painted on Sherlock s wall above his couch, which he shot at, and which sort of reminds me of a Doyle canon story. What is painted on the wall, and what story does it remind YOU of?

9th June 2012
Set by Tantalus
1. Every story has a beginning. What words did Dr. Watson first hear Holmes say?
2. Ladies (especially), what colour are the eyes of our detective friend (bonus points if you tell the story in which this information is found)?
3. Each story (or nearly so) gives us a glimpse into Holmes' special deductive powers. What brilliant deduction is the very first one that, through Watson's eyes, we get to see?
4. Most of the stories have Dr. Watson as narrarator. Four of them do not. Which are they, and, for those, who relates each drama?
5. Easily, the most popular image of Sherlock Holmes is with his deerstalker hat, Inverness cape, and calabash pipe. In which canon story do we first see Holmes portrayed in this manner?
6. No one would call Dr. Watson an immoral man, but we do see hints of one particular vice in stories such as "The Dancing Men" and "Shoscombe Old Place". What weakness do these stories (and perhaps one or two others) suggest or show?
7. The best-known illustrator of the stories that appeared in The Strand magazine was a relatively unknown artist. Name the man who gave Holmes his handsome, scholarly, dignified aura.
8. All good things must come to an end. What is the last case (chronologically) that we see Holmes and Watson solving as one unit?
9. Related to Holmes retirement, Dr. Watson tells us that Holmes has removed to the Sussex Downs, and occupies himself primarily in two fields of study. What are these two fields?
10. Yikes! Almost done... Watson leaves the rooms at 221B Baker Street at one point, and then returns to live with Holmes again later. Why did he come back, and why did he originally go?
11. Moriarty, arch-nemesis of Holmes, never actually meets Dr. Watson. He gets all his information about the professor from Holmes. What is unusual about the way Holmes introduces Watson to Moriarty in the canon? I suspect this question might be hard to follow. I can't make my meaning more clear without giving away the answer. PM me if you wish, and I'll give any hints that I can.
Bonus: Hidden within the questions themselves is a clue as to what Holmes himself might think of this quiz. Can you find it? Note: If you think you know, feel free to post your answer, but please give us a ***Spoiler*** alert so as not to ruin the fun for others.
