This was added in an edit of this page under discontinuity:

While this novel treats Holmes and Watson as real people, fictionalized slightly by Doyle, a previous encounter between the Doctor and Arthur Conan Doyle in Evolution (novel) implies strongly that Holmes and Watson are fictional characters, created by Doyle, based on the Doctor and Doyle himself.

The novel states that the character who is portrayed as Watson writes up his diaries and passes them onto Doyle who writes the Holmes and Watson novels. At this novel's close Bernice Summerfield gives copies to the character upon whom Watson is based who also passes them onto Doyle. The text of All-Consuming Fire is the adventure that they both had, except written up and had the names of Holmes and Watson changed by Doyle. --Tangerineduel 12:25, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Anachronistic food Edit

It should be noted, possibly in the Foods and Beverages section, that Holmes & Watson eat Coronation Chicken in their native Victorian era. This is an anachronism, because the dish was devised in 1953 & its name refers to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in that year. It was unknown in the Victorian era. See wikipedia:Coronation Chicken, for example. -- to me 19:46, November 13, 2016 (UTC)

Actually, T:NO RW applies here. On this wiki, it is a major belief underlying all in-universe articles that the Doctor Who universe is not the same as the real world. It's usually not necessary to point out the differences on story pages. If there is a page for Coronation Chicken, it's possible that there could be a behind-the-scenes note about the real world. In addition, in-universe articles about real world people, places and things receive a {{Wikipediainfo}} tag that takes users to the wikipedia article about the subject if they would like real world info.
