(I know, I know: I haven’t finished “Quite Glorified Uncle” yet. But this was an itch that had to be scratched. And now that I have done, I’ll finish QGU. Never fear.)
In an earlier post, I discussed the apparent confluences between the The Avengers Season 2 episode “Mr Teddy Bear” and a handful of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories.
