    Summary

    The visual mood of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride reminded me of the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, especially the scenes in the crypt and the scenes outside Sir Eustace's house at night, this shot in particular. All together, they made me want to actually place the Sherlock and John of TAB in Doyle's Victorian setting and to have the narrator of Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher bring the mystery of his friend's death to them to investigate.

    So, the exterior of Sir Eustace's house plays the part of the House of Usher. Imagine the interior equally dark and full of things even older than the facade.
