Poison!

self, difference engine, Babbage
I'm watching an old Sherlock Holmes TV series on DVD. Can't remember the Holmes actor's name yet, I just started. But just now there was a shot of Holmes's chemistry shelf at the beginning of a new scene. A line of bottles had labels - plain white labels with black block letters: "Poison" "Strong poison" "DEADLY poison" "SNAKE POISON" and then "Tea."

I remember something from one where Holmes kept his tea in the deadly poison jar so no one would steal it.

Ah! He may even have said that in the same episode; I wasn't paying 100% attention, to be honest. I'll have to watch it again.

Probably the Jeremy Brett series from ITV. I don't remember that scene, not having seen every episode, but it sounds like the sort of thing that they occasionally did.

No, this was a 1954 series starring Ronald Howard and Howard Marion. Tons 'o' fun.
