** OTOH, staying clean-shaven under all circumstances is a logical thing for a man who ''wears disguises'' for a significant part of his work. It's hard to apply a false beard over an ''actual'' beard, after all.

* On a similar note, Julia Stoner (the victim from "Specked Band") was bitten in the crotch by the swamp adder. Anywhere else, and the coroner would've surely noticed the bite wound, but Victorian proprieties ensured he wouldn't ''dare'' examine that portion of her anatomy for the police inquiry.

** Lack of secondary sex characteristics is extremely suggestive, although he could be an XY with Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, which fits for being tall but light on the masculine features. If it were mild, he'd be an infertile man that doesn't shave, if it were more complete, the science of the time could hardly differentiate him from a female except for the lack of ovaries, but in a different presentation we could split the difference and say he had ambiguous genitalia, had any combination of female or male physical traits you may imagine, and was raised as a girl as per the following:

Young Sherlock Holmes
Finally, Elizabeth's murder, though he showed some optimism for the future, caused Holmes to become deeply traumatized and depressed to the point that he took to drinking and drugs in order to cope with the pain.

Adler, though he cared about her, was never what Elizabeth was to her and that's why her death didn't affect him as much. He wasn't necessarily detatched, but certainly not invested enough to feel that same pain. Holmes also became dependent on Watson as his crutch to keep him sane to point that he saw Watson's relationship and ultimate engagement to her as a threat to himself because it would destroy his inability to avoid his pain over Elizabeth that he never let go. Finally, when Holmes nearly died on the train but was then revived, the ridiculous dream he described wasn't actually what he saw. The horror was from his life and all the terrible things that happened in it flashing before his eyes and it terrified him to the point that it would be too dreadful to repeat any of it.

Young Sherlock Holmes
Despite the inconsistencies in certain characters' ages and possibly the year each movie took place, the movie fits quite well together with these two stories. In the 2009 movie, Holmes and Watson had already been very well acquainted and working together by that point. It didn't establish their first meeting when they were adults and thus, it's logical to think that their meeting as schoolboys in YSH could have been the way it happened instead. Holmes never had confidence in Lestrade as an inspector because he knows he didn't earn it and simply rode Holmes' coattails to do so. He would constantly hint at Lestrade's incompetence and .

It didn't establish their first meeting when they were adults and thus, it's logical to think that their meeting as schoolboys in YSH could have been the way it happened instead. Holmes would then reunite years later with Watson and they'd start working together again, professionally this time, especially after Watson's time in the service and medical training brought him closer to Holmes in intelligence and helped him come into himself more. Holmes never had confidence in Lestrade as an inspector because he knows he didn't earn it and simply rode Holmes' coattails to do so. He would constantly hint at Lestrade's incompetence and . and inability to do the job he shouldn't have (the act they did for Coward in the first one had Holmes making fun of Lestrade in that sense to the point of calling him a criminal in getting the job, which gave Lestrade the opportunity to finally punch Holmes in the gut for it and get away with it). Despite the constant badgering about not deserving to be an inspector, Lestrade did begrudgingly grow to respect Holmes and be grateful for his skills. Rathe/Ehtar became even more volatile and cruel after the death of his equally fanatical sister to the point that he sought criminal means of obtaining riches and power so as to reinvent himself as Moriarty, creating and living out a whole new life just to make sure he fooled everyone he came into contact with. If he wasn't doing it to avenge his sister (who he may have never actually cared about in the first place), he was doing it for his own ravenous need to inflict destruction and damage as many people as possible while lacking any traits of empathy and understanding if he had any at all (his parents were clearly fanatics who either brought out these traits in him with their own radical actions and behaviors or amplified them the same way). Holmes figured out who he was and treated him like a different person because he no longer saw any trace of the Rathe he thought was his friend, but Ehtar fully realized in all his horrible glory with the new name and identity he had made for himself. Finally, Elizabeth's murder, though he showed some optimism for the future, caused Holmes to become deeply traumatized and depressed to the point that he took to drinking and drugs in order to cope with the pain.

* Assuming this is true, Holmes has on several occasions let a murderer go free if he feels that their case was not without sympathy; Lady Hilda was being blackmailed by a spy who was, at least, something of a scumbag. He might have pegged that Lady Hilda's account didn't quite add up, but felt that she didn't deserve to hang for it. Besides which, he was hired to retrieve the papers and prevent a scandal, not to solve the spy's murder, so he just decided it was Someone Else's Problem.
