I loved this! I'll definitely be picking up Scott's other Holmes pastiches at some point. Scott captured Watson's voice so well, and the story really did feel as if it could slot nicely into the canon stories. I really enjoyed the relationship between Holmes and Watson in this, there was some really great banter between the two of them. The characters created for this were great, I especially liked Tovey. The case was a fascinating one, and whilst there were some bits I guessed correctly, there were plenty of aspects that surprised me. My one gripe would be that the story could have done with a few more pages at the end. The conclusion felt quite abrupt.
