* HeyItsThatGuy: Both Creator/PeterCushing and Creator/ChristopherLee have portrayed the great detective with great acclaim in two separate occasions. Peter Cushing in particular has been considered amongst the best out of the more than 75 actors to have portrayed the character, which include the likes of Jeremy Brett, Basil Rathbone and Vasily Livanov, and was known to have an encyclopedic amount of Holmesian knowledge.
*** In the 2010 TheAsylum film, [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Ianto Jones]] is Holmes' faithful friend, biographer, and personal physician.

* AuthorAppeal: Holmes and Watson manage to subdue Dredger with an arm bar and rear-naked choke, as director Guy Ritchie is a fan of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
* CastingGag: Geraldine James, who plays Mrs Hudson, had previously starred in an adaptation of ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles''.
* CreatorInJoke: A brief shot of an inn called 'The Punch Bowl' is visible. Guy Ritchie owns a pub called The Punch Bowl in Mayfair.



* HilariousInHindsight: Stephen Fry flirted with Hugh Laurie on ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie''. Laurie went on to play Series/{{House}} (who was based very heavily on Holmes), and Stephen Fry went on to play Mycroft. [[{{Squick}} Does that make it incest?]]
* TheOtherDarrin: Jared Harris as Moriarty, in a way. Since, technically, he appeared always in shadow in the first movie and was played by Ed Tolputt in an uncredited role.
** Averted in subsequent TV airings of the first film, as it seems Jared Harris was brought in to re-dub Tolputt's lines to give it continuity with the second film.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Sienna Miller was in talks to star in the film, possibly as Mary. But when Jude Law was cast as Watson, this was quietly dropped - due to the couple's very public break-up when Law had an affair with their nanny.
** Sam Worthington and Colin Farrell were in talks to play Watson before Jude Law was cast.

* InternetCounterattack: ''Holy damn'', the reactions to Holmes's death in "The Final Problem." The Strand's subscription rate dropping tremendously, thousands and thousands of hate mail for Doyle, Doyle getting attacked in the street numerous times, young women wearing black, men wearing black armbands, Prince Bertie expressing outrage, Conan Doyle's mother complaning and there were even rumors of ''Queen Victoria'' herself among the people who disliked Doyle's decision.

* FandomNod: In the extended preview (aired during the ''{{Monk}}'' series finale), there's yet another clip of the Holmes-Watson VitriolicBestBuds routine, then a cut to Adler going "They've been flirting like this for ''hours''." To the general public, a funny joke. To those aware of the Holmes/Watson-shipping fanbase, ''bloody hilarious''. As it happened, [[spoiler:this seems to have been a deleted scene referring to Watson's bickering with a boat captain.]]
