Notes on the Setting Edit

In episode 1 Watson has just returned from Afghanistan. Like his literary counterpart he was a combat medic. The 2nd Anglo-Afghan war occurred between the years 1878 and 1880. This is likely the war references as in episode 3 "A Small Client" shows us newly minted coins that feature Queen Victoria and the year 1894. However the show has some apparent anachronisms; for starters the Airplane wasn't introduced till 1903, which is two years after the death of Queen Victoria with Airmail between England and France (as shown in episode 10 "The White cliffs of Dover") being briefly established in the year 1912. The soldiers seen in episode 13 "The Runaway Freight Car" are uniformed in the same fashion as 1914 BEF Soldiers.

While the world is inhabited by anthropomorphic canines there are depictions of Humans in art. The earliest being in Episode 4 "Mrs. Hudson is Taken" in which the Mona Lisa makes an appearance. Episode 7 "A Sacred Image Disappears" is another example. In that episode Moriarty steels a golden Angel Statue which is described as 'a national treasure'. These are notable in that many other statues and paintings through out the show (such as those seen in Episode 12 "The Stormy Getaway") include anthropomorphic dog characters.
