Lestrade's wife and Mrs. Hudson both cook cabbage. It must be the night for it.

They're doing some Holmes-bashing.

I learned a new one there-I always assumed that since "phobia" is greek, then the first half had to be Greek, too! I want to find out now if it is a Greek word as well as a Latin one, but I can't find "bupho" in my middle Liddel, anyway...

Hehe! I like this series.
Okay-the "mathom" thing-"mathom" is old English for "treasure" but it didn't actually make it into modern English. (I checked in the OED to make sure I wasn't forgetting something-the last use before Tolkien was in Layamon's Brut-1275 AD) Tolkien, being a scholar of Old English, used it to mean a useless object (a white elephant gift) in The Fellowship of the Ring as a joke. The reason Blish used it is probably because he is a fantasy writer, and as such was influenced by Tolkien.
So, "mathom" was, to all intents and purposes, not a word in Victorian England.
I like words and the history of language...so I couldn't help but point that out! :-)

Sometimes I wonder if Holmes and Watson are disguised at the back of the pub.
I do hope you will continue this, or write a new story. You gave life to the scottland yarders.

You have a great imagination and a great gift of writing and knowledge. And comedy! :) This is hilarious! If only Holmes and Watson knew! Wow . . . :)
