I have a theory that the cabbie that takes John to Barts…
… is actually Mycroft Holmes.
A brougham was waiting with a very massive driver wrapped in a dark cloak, who, the instant that I had stepped in, whipped up the horse and rattled off to Victoria Station. - The Final Problem
That was Mycroft’s cameo in The Final Problem. Mycroft Holmes, older brother, British government, cabbie.
It’s quite a neat theory, and would sit well with the trope of no one paying any attention to the cabbie that has run through the series as a whole. And we do know that Mycroft found his way to St Bart’s at some point. Intriguing!
A PLEA FOR ALL SHERLOCK FANS
I need an HD clip of the scene in Baskervillewhere you finally see the hound. Preferably just that scene, but I can work with a longer clip. What I don’t want is to have to download the entire episode.
Alternatively, if anyone knows a website where I can download various hi-def clips from the series, or where I can download the episode in section, I would prefer that.
Question mark so you can answer?
