Arthur Cadogan West, the murdered MI6 analyst, bears the same name as a prominent character in Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans." Like his counterpart, Conan Doyle's Arthur West worked for a Government office and secret documents were found on his murdered body. Mycroft Holmes appears in both the Elementary episode and the story but there are few other parallels in the plot. See more
In the previous episode, Holmes is shown smashing his and Mycroft's smart phones so they can't be followed by the NSA. He then replaces them with flip "burner" phones. At the beginning of this episode, which occurs only a handful of hours later, Holmes is shown receiving a phone call with Watson on the caller ID, on another smart phone. It is unlikely he would have had the time to replace it once again while working against the clock to save Watson from her captors. See more
