Episode #020 – The Adventure of the Gloria Scott

Glor-02 Join Angela, John, Scott and Tabz as they discuss The Adventure of the Gloria Scott. In this episode we find out that in his university days, Holmes spent a month with his friend, Victor Trevor, at his father’s estate in Norfolk. While there, Holmes amazed his host, Victor’s father, who was a Justice of the Peace and a landowner besides. He had made his fortune in the goldfields in Australia. One of Holmes’s deductions was that the elder Mr. Trevor was once connected with someone with the initials J. A. whom he wanted to forget. His host then passed out on the table. Holmes had touched a sore spot, and possibly did not believe the old man’s explanation once he had come back to himself that J. A. had been an old lover (Wikipedia).
