This example needs clarifying. It sounds like WesternAnimation.Sherlock Holmes In The Twenty Second Century, but I don't know enough about that show to rewrite the example in a way that makes sense. The adventure referenced by this (film? series?) is "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder".
- A movie this troper involving Sherlock Holmes returning in modern times, revived by a female descendant of Dr. Watson opens with a scene where a man in a white coat comes to a house to confront the owner. As they start fighting, a gun is drawn and goes off. In the next scene a man in a white coat torches a body lying under a blanket before he flees. At the end we find out that the house owner killed the visitor and put on his coat before torching the body (and the house).
