The Blue Carbuncle


Recommended Posts

Yes, but still, do jewels have the same cultural significance today as they had then?


By the way, we laugh about Sherlock's purple shirt today, but in the original, he had a purple dressing gown. In "The Blue Carbuncle", Watson finds his friend lounging on the sofa in that.


But not in the episode! There it is almost the exact colour of what has been shown so far of the Christmas special, a sort of sand/dun colour, the one the modern one wears in SoT.

And you do realise, that the whole bet scene in Hounds is taken straight out of the Blue Carbuncle story, don't you?
