"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

A Christmas Carol at 221B (2018)

Sherlock Holmes meets Ebeneezer Scrooge in this Christmas themed Holmes pastiche by Thomas Mann.

While Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson sit comfortably by their fireplace on the evening of December 24th of 1894, Dr. Watson’s memory of previous Christmas Eves draws forth an unexpected response from his companion. Holmes, normally very reticent to speak about his early life, meditatively recalls a particular incident that happened on the same date in his own past: that when he was a very young man, before ever meeting Watson, he had occasion to meet and to be of great service to none other than a very old Ebeneezer Scrooge.
