* LondonTown: 221B Baker Street did not exist at the time (the house numbers only went up to 100 there). Later 221 would be assigned to the Abbey National Building Society (who had to hire a full-time clerk specifically to deal with Sherlock-related fanmail), which has now vacated that office. 221B is now allocated to the museum, located between 237 and 241 Baker Street.

* BeamMeUpScotty: "Elementary My Dear Watson" was never said in that order the original books. Homes would says "Elementary" or say "My Dear Watson", but never together. Its use was first made in William Gillette's plays.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: The solution to "The Five Orange Pips" has become something like this thanks to a century of EaglelandOsmosis. Once the initials on the letter are revealed to be K.K.K., readers can work out the rest by themselves.
** "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane" is a gift to zoologists: the 'murderer' is a jellyfish, and the injuries of the dead man plus the title leave no room for doubt.

* InsideJob: In "Silver Blaze", two of Holmes' hints are "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" ([[AbsenceOfEvidence it was completely silent]]) and the fact that powdered opium was put in a dish spicy enough to hide its taste. A dog would not have kept silent had it sensed an intruder, nor could an outsider have arranged for a spicy dish to be served on that particular night, so the trope must be in effect.
