    NOTE: There is a lot of flexibility in this game, allowing you to go to various sundry locations in 
    haphazard order. In fact, the order that I went through the game when writing the walkthru is not the 
    order in which I played the first time - hindsight (or notes) is such a wonderful thing. So, this is less
    a walkthru than a script of what to do to get past a scene or puzzle.
    Items that you can acquire are in bold, while poignant information or new map locations are underlined.
    You start as Watson, outside 221B Baker St. Mycroft, Holmes' brother, was hurt in an explosion at the 
    Diogenes Club.
    LOOK at the scarf near the newspaper stand - Holmes ` messenger is never far from scarf (that's who you 
    hear snoring).
    LOOK Stall
    LOOK Wiggins, inside the stall
    WAKE Wiggins

    TALK Wiggins 1 "help Mr. Holmes"

    LOOK constable
    TALK constable 1 "nip in":  won't let you in
    TALK constable 1 "friend's attention":

                              2 "explosion at Pall Mall": Fire brigade said Diogenes Club was gas leak. 
                                            Fireman amazed at damage from so little gas.
                                            Mycroft Holmes now at St. Bart's hospital
    Now have map icon for Diogenes Club and St. Bart's

    It does fill in a few gaps that would appear later on if you can do this. And, if you come back
    later, you'll find out that David has died. You can take the counterfeit money to Stitch Rumsey,
    and learn a bit of history about him.

    Curiously, in my initial run of the game, the Major (excuse me - Managing Director - actually
    dropped the trident in. In later runthroughs, he didn't - perhaps the game keeps track of how much 
    help you need and does extra "looky here!" animations)
    This is Major Misteray - despite his protestations

    David Lloyd-Jones' stash, then you have two reasons to go to 
    This location is done!

    LOOK Scarrett  and the ending begins
    The only thing I never figured out was how Holmes knew there was a composite involving one of the royal 
    family - or, more to the point a female member. I suspected a compromising picture was missing from 
    Lawton's album, but had assumed it was something that would make Lady Cordelia break off the 
    engagement. Yet, when Holmes confronts Major Mysteray he refers to the picture explicitly.
    Overall, though - what fun!
