Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective - Solution

Each solution consists of three parts:

•Date: the date of the newspaper appropriate to the crime. For some reason, the game never tells you this!
•Visits: the set of addresses you must visit before you are allowed to appear before the judge. Some addresses can be visited by either Holmes or the Irregulars, in which case they should be visited by the Irregulars for a higher score. Such addresses are listed under 'Irregulars'. Some addresses, on the other hand, must be visited by Holmes in person.
•Answers: the answers to supply to the judge. Only look here if you must!
