  • Velma announces the guest star in the title card.
  • The ghost laugh of the Screaming Skulls of London is similar from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode Hassle in the Castle.
  • The scene in which the gang arrive at Tower of London is used in the opening of the series theme song, it's just been altered to have the bats fly out and the Mystery Machine be empty.
  • This episode is the first time that gang go abroad in this series.


Cultural references

  • Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and first appeared in print in 1887's A Study in Scarlet.
  • While Sherlock Holmes has at times commented that his observations were "elementary" and referred to Dr. Watson as "my dear Watson", he never uttered the phrase "Elementary, my dear Watson" in any of the original stories published by Doyle

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The world of Sherlock Holmes has always been real within the realm of Scooby-Doo canon, but in this episode, the gang clearly state that he isn't a real person.
  • Crackpot Sherlock is supposed to be the one detached from reality, although he was the one wearing protective eye goggles, while Velma, who was standing beside him, wasn't. It could be reasoned that she was already her glasses, but that's quite not the same.
  • In quoting the security guard at the end, Daphne should've said "we" instead of "they".
  • Toad in the hole is traditionally sausages cooked in Yorkshire pudding batter, not a fried egg cooked in the middle of toast.

Fred: Look, gang. This dirt has been freshly disturbed.
Daphne: There's a trail.
Velma: These are the same tracks we saw at the subway tunnel!
Sherlock Holmes: It seems the Screaming Skulls tried to get in but... could not!
Shaggy: Like, what would a bunch of creepy skulls want with the crown jewels?
Beefeater: What's all this, then? You lot shouldn't be snooping around in the Tower of London after hours! It's not allowed!
Fred: But... We're solving a mystery.

Security guard: Would've made our sausage roll, too, if it weren't for you meddlin' dustbin lids!
Daphne: He said, "And they would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids."
