    Few observations on the podcast in which you may be interested: (1) Winter is in episode 1; she peaks out from behind the curtain when James first visits the brothel; (2) Mark Gatiss plays Mycroft Holmes- not Moriarty; and (3) Timothy Spall plays Wormtail in Harry Potter; Richard Dixon plays Pettifer in Taboo (they aren’t the same person).

    What about the foreign language he speaks in this episode? I took it to be an African language and that he is either praying or casting a spell. What do you think?
