Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In both the original story and episode "The Priory School" Holmes snarkily taunts the Duke, first over his reluctance for Holmes to investigate his son's disappearance, and later when demanding payment for solving the case before telling the Duke the solution. In the story, Holmes does so as a strategy, because [[spoiler:he has already deduced the Duke has recovered his son and is shielding the kidnapper]]. The episode changes this but keeps the snarking, making Holmes seem needlessly cruel.

Added DiffLines:

* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wilson Kemp, once more. He is perhaps the creepiest villain in the entire series, what with his [[SlasherSmile constant grin]], [[GigglingVillain wicked snicker]], [[SuddenlyShouting sudden]] [[MoodSwinger outbursts of rage]], and a vocal delivery that has hints of PeterLorre.
