* SpottingTheThread: Naturally, Holmes is an expert spotting the one minor little inconsistency that ends up unraveling the entire criminal plot. Watson is soon just as adept in spotting the same clues to solve the case.
** A rare case of neither of them is in an episode where they investigate the murder of a doctor who was a wealtyh Doomsday prepper. The man had invested thousands of dollars in a high-tech "bunker" for the rich unaware it was all a scam. Holmes and Watson confront a suspect who turns out to be a reporter about to expose the scam himself. When asked how he knew, he explains that his attention was caught by the complete lack of a paper trail for the thousands of galleons of fuel and numerous supplies such a place should have.

* MasterOfDisguise: Unlike other versions of the character, this Sherlock doesn't go for elaborate disguises for his work. Indeed, one episode openly discusses it with Holmes stating that even the best makeup and latex has limitations and it's nearly impossible for someone to replicate a person in voice and mannerisms to fool friends up close.
-->'''Holmes''': There's no such thing as a true master of disguise. If there was, I would be one myself.

** In "Art Imitates Art" an artist creates images using photos taken off social media without permission. No one mentions the fact that the owners (many of whom are very angry about this) could sue for copyright violation and have their photos taken down.

* SpringtimeForHitler: "Dead Man's Tale" features an example clearly inspired by the TropeNamer: A man stages an expedition to search for a sunken ship, promising his investors a massive share of the treasure supposedly buried on board. [[spoiler: The idea was that when he failed to find any treasure, they would get nothing and he would pocket the unused money they had given him. Unfortunately for him, evidence quickly surfaced that there really was gold on the ship, so he had to stage an elaborate plot to make it disappear.]]

* SpringtimeForHitler: "Dead Man's Tale" features an example which is so clearly inspired by the TropeNamer: TropeNamer, the episode actually includes a brief clip from ''Series/TheProducers''. A man stages an expedition to search for a sunken ship, promising his investors a massive share of the treasure supposedly buried on board. [[spoiler: The idea was that when he failed to find any treasure, they would get nothing and he would pocket the unused money they had given him. Unfortunately for him, evidence quickly surfaced that there really was gold on the ship, so he had to stage an elaborate plot to plot--including murder--to make it disappear.]]



** A woman faking her own murder got the plot rolling in "On The Line", loosley based on the Conan Doyle Thor Bridge story. The audience saw her go through with it in the cold open, including a 911 call where she identifies an old enemy of hers as her "assailant". Sherlock figures it out pretty quickly, but soon regrets exposing the plot, because [[spoiler:the man she framed was a sadistic serial killer]].

** "The Five Orange Pipz" episode involves toy beads that that contain substance that metabolises into potentially lethal [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma-Hydroxybutyric_acid GHB]] when swallowed due to the manufacturer substituting the substance for the more expensive non-poisonous substance. This is a nod to a similar problem with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bindeez Bindeez]] toys.
