At one point, Holmes drinks something that Watson notes is meant "for eye surgery." In the Sherlock Holmes novel "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution," Watson laments that the cocaine mixture that Holmes was addicted to was originally meant for eye surgery.
The first scene in Baker Street is a nod to Granada Television's "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" (1984) series, starring Jeremy Brett. In the scene, the camera focuses on a "Baker Street" street sign, then tracks backward down the street and over a clopping horse pulling a carriage. This same camera shot and angle - with the overhead tracking shot over a horse and carriage - was used to reveal Baker Street in the opening credits sequence of the Granada TV series.
