Holmes closed his eyelids and steepled his fingers. The Duchess was about to speak but Watson silenced her with a gesture.

"Your story is incomplete, your grace."
"Excuse me, Mr. Holmes?"
"You say that, upon hearing of the Duke's death, you boarded the first train to London and came directly here."
"Yet your skirts tell another tale entirely."
"Really, Holmes, she is a lady--" Watson began, but Holmes dismissed him with a wave of his hand.
"Your skirts are riddled - positively riddled - with Higgs bosons, your grace."
"Why, so they are."
"And, as I am sure you aware, the Higgs boson is responsible for the breaking of electroweak symmetry, which in England only occurs in Charing Cross. The earliest train from Surrey to London arrived at 11:15 at Paddington Station. Charing Cross does not lie on the path from Paddington Station to Baker street. Therefore, your story is either incomplete or false."
