26 minutes
“helped a little to fill up the gap of loneliness and isolation” [MAZA]   

There are many tragic figures in the Sherlock Holmes stories, and more than a handful are lonely or isolated in some way. This is either features in their predicament or gives us a better understanding of their personality.

As many of us may be entering a period of isolation or loneliness now, we thought it was an apt topic to discuss. It's just a Trifle.

Bonus: We recorded this live while on video, and you can find the link below.
