Sorry this episode is later than usual- we originally recorded a week later than we’d normal do, thanks to nutty schedules, and then the Podcast Gods were angry about something, so we rescheduled, and an avocado was sacrificed, and WE’RE BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER.

(There are spoilers for the end of Elementary at around the 1h45min to 1h55min mark. Proceed at your own risk.)

Various adaptations with Sherlock as a cat: Surprisingly accurate
