No point in talking about anything current, so I shall just note, in a last outburst of spleen for 2016, that someone who claims to be obsessed with the Victorians, and spends all his time reading and writing about them, has no justification for making Dr. Watson refer to a lady as Ms. B---.

Miss or Mrs, depending on marital status. Like it was until the 1970s when the term Ms was first invented.

Ah yes. My mind automatically converts Ms. to Mrs! So I didn't notice it!
