In this episode list, I will provide episode names and authors, but I will
also (in the Sherlockian tradition) give each episode a unique four-letter
designation which will identify the ep. If an ep has the same name as a
Canonical story, the usual story designator will be followed by a 2. Production
numbers are courtesy of Jesse Lee Herndon.
Just for fun, I'll also link each ep's page to things like the quotable
quotes from the ep, review comments, and my infamous shipper epguide. If
you have review comments, feel free to email me and I'll put 'em up on the page!
The name of each Holmes story which inspired an episode is linked to
the Holmes texts at
The Complete Sherlock Holmes
at Camden House, a lovely site which not only contains the stories but also
illustrations by the various artists. For those who prefer plain text, I
recommend www.knowledgerush.com for
all your Project Gutenberg e-text needs. Happy reading!
