Latest News from the Feejees - 6

The second episode of the second series of BBC mysteries, Sherlock  (The Hounds of Baskerville), aired in the US tonight. It opens with Holmes bursting into his flat (at 221B, of course), blood-spattered and carrying a fine, toggle-headed harpoon(!).

Watson: You went on the tube like that?
Holmes: None of the cabs would take me!
