When young Sherlock Holmes and John Watson first meet, Holmes incorrectly guesses that Watson's first initial stands for "James". This is a reference to one of the contradictions in the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories: in most of the stories, Watson's first name is John, but in one story, his wife inexplicably calls him "James". Watson's middle initial is "H", which Doyle never expanded on; there is a popular fan speculation that it stands for "Hamish", which is the Scottish variation of "James", and that this is a private term of endearment used by his wife.

Considering how cold it would need to be to freeze the water or the river/lake so thick, no one's breath is visible while they are outside. Especially so during the climactic fight at the end where the body temperatures would have risen. See more »
This is an awesome movie. The only drawback was the absurd dealing with the "flying machine." Other than that, sit back and enjoy as Watson and Holmes embark on their alleged first adventure as Holmes tries to find the link between a rash of recent murders, hallucinations people have been having, and a cult. Not a bad way to spend a few hours of your time!
