STEVEN MOFFAT: This all began on the train to Cardiff, appropriately enough, because Mark and I were both working on different episodes of Doctor Who. And we’d sit on the train together – we’d always get the train together so we could chat – and we talked about our other great obsession, which was Sherlock Holmes.MARK GATISS: We did this little dance – not literally!

Then, while they were in Monte Carlo for an awards ceremony, Sue sat them down and they started to thrash out how they might do it themselves. The young man in the rain who goes back to fetch his umbrella and is then found dead is named as James Phillimore. A man of the same name is in the Conan Doyle stories and is recorded as one of Holmes’ unsolved cases.
