Did You Know?
Although credited as an adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
's short story "The Adventure of the Dancing Men", the plot is an original story based on historical events which happened after Doyle's death. The only resemblance to the credited story is a cameo by the "secret code" of stick figure drawings. There is another moment taken from Doyle's "Sign of Four": the trail of luminous paint is confused when luminous paint is picked up by wheels of another vehicle at a crossroads. See more
The mercs wait outside to grab Dr. Tobel when he comes back out after visiting his fiancée, so they would have had no way of knowing that Dr. Tobel had written a coded message or where he had hidden it in Miss Eberli's apartment; they could not have informed Professor Moriarty about it, either, or told him where the coded message was so that he could stealthily retrieve it later while posing as an electrician.
