* ''LiveActionTV/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' made a RunningGag out of these characters, as can be seen in the page quote. This eventually led to the "Flying Fox of the Yard" sketch (which closed off the famous "Argument Clinic" sketch), where a policeman called Inspector Thompson's Gazelle of the Yard arrests the entire show on, amongst others, the charge of [[HypocriticalHumor "always saying it's 'so-and-so of the yard' whenever the fuzz arrives"]].

** Lampshaded in one story, as Holmes's need for disguises was explained to be a result of criminals recognizing him from all the coverage he was getting... including that from his good friend, Dr. Watson.
*** It really doesn't help that Holmes has very striking features and is described as being very tall.

* Similarly, Detective Sergeant [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Slipper Jack Slipper]] became known as "Slipper of the Yard" for his role investigating the Great Train Robbery. TheOtherWiki notes that the fickle press later nicknamed him "Slip-Up of the Yard" after his attempts to bring Ronnie Biggs to justice continued to fail. Nonetheless, he eventually retired as a Chief Superintendent, so it wasn't a massive hindrance to his career.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernst_Gennat Ernst Gennat]] (1880-1939), the head of Berlin's ''Mordinspektion'', (set up in 1926, the world's first police Homicide division), wasn't just a well known pubic figure in Berlin and later all of Germany, but actually got world wide recognition for his involvement in the cases of serial killers (a term he coined) Fritz Haarmann and Peter Kürten. He was so well known that many immediately recognized that Kommissar Lohmann, the lead investigator in Creator/FritzLang's movies Film/{{M}} and Film/TheTestamentOfDrMabuse was based on him.
