* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: This series practically defines the England of the late nineteenth century for most readers. The state of politics and science nails the period down, and decades of fans have generally been able to pinpoint the exact years most of the years were set in.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Holmes himself is a rare heroic example. Moriarty and his right hand man Col. Moran also seem to be the only Sherlock Holmes villains smart enough to try to attack him in Baker Street. It would have probably worked on anyone else, but they were messing with the [[BadAss master]].
** Baron Gruner in "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client" almost manages where Moriarty failed. But then, Holmes himself says he is an enemy of Moriarty's potential and danger.

* TheBadGuyWins: In "A Case of Identity", this happens because of Holmes' sexism. He thinks it's better not to tell his client that her disappeared fiancé was actually her step-father [[WigDressAccent in disguise]], because (according to Holmes) "there is danger for him who taketh the tiger cub, and danger also for whoso snatches a delusion from a woman". Holmes even agrees with the culprit that--loathsome though Holmes personally finds him--nothing he's done is legally actionable, despite the fact that breach of promise was a serious thing and she would certainly have won a civil suit against him.
