In "The Sussex Vampire", Holmes investigates the case of a baby with two small wounds on his neck, and three men with the rare surname of Garrideb feature in "The Three Garridebs". In "The Problem of Thor Bridge", Holmes finds an interesting use for Watson's revolver, and a noted professor suddenly begins acting very strangely in "The Creeping Man".
