‘Watson, we have been left with a most fortuitous clue,’ said Holmes retrieving a pair of men’s shoes from behind the hawthorn hedge.

The shoes were old and had been re-soled more than once.

‘One of the thieves hid these here but had to abandon them once his accomplices found out we were wise to their plans.’

‘Are you going to round up the suspects and make them try on the shoes; if the shoe fits, then wear it, sort of business?’

‘Of course not, my dear fellow. I will give them to Toby and let him sniff them out.’

Haha, love it! Holmes is ever so much more practical than Watson. Foolish criminals to think they can get away by leaving behind such juicy evidence!

(BTW, there's a typo: Watson says "if the SHOW fits")

Once again, practicality over romance.

Poor Watson was SO looking forward to wearing his Royal Chamberlain uniform and sash to do the shoe-fittings, too.

I bet Holmes has a mousetrap set and pumpkin pie for tea, too...
