"Author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle almost called his famous detective Sherrinford Holmes and his sidekick Ormond Sacker but decided the names were too bizarre and changed them to Sherlock and Dr John Watson. He later used the name Sherrinford for Sherlock’s eldest brother." How did you get the Daily Mirror article from the alternate universe where Mycroft was called "Sherrinford"? I wonder how many stories are in their Canon?
You caught the also. I just said a connection, not a correct one.
