  1. I’ve read two of those : The Cliff House and The Death of Mrs Westaway. I’ve had Black Rabbit Hall on my Goodreads TBR shelf for ages but still haven’t bought a copy.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful break! xx

    1. I remember the original ITV Sherlock Holmes series starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes and that episode has Denis Quilley as Dr Sterndale. They have this great exchange:

      Sherlock Holmes : You went to the vicarage, and you waited there for some time.
      Dr. Leon Sterndale : How do you know that?
      Sherlock Holmes : I followed you.
      Dr. Leon Sterndale : I saw no one!
      Sherlock Holmes : That is what you may expect to see when I follow you!

      1. I don’t remember seeing the TV version, although I probably did. I do remember the Radio 4 version with Clive Merrison and Michael Williams. That version of Holmes was most contrite at almost causing Watson’s death. The Holmes of the short story was a lot more brusque.
