It's Doyle-canon, with a focus on Kitty Winters (I haven't read the original Doyle story). She's clever, so clever, and Watson is so kindly and observant in his own ways. Not to give too much away, but if you've ever been slightly irritated with Holmes's/Doyle's attitude toward women, this shows a more evolved view that seemed like so natural a progression, I could see it being part of the canon.
And just when I thought I was done - that coda! I reckon I'll be smiling remembering this one quite a bit over the next few days. Do give it a read.
