Sherlock Holmes And The Time Patrol
However, during Holmes' long retirement, we are informed of only two investigations, into a German spy ring and the "Lion's Mane," respectively. Since most of this period of Holmes' life remains unrecorded, it would be possible for Patrol agents to interact with him for much of this time without any fear that their existence might become more widely known. Thus, they might consult or even recruit him, as suggested here.
(I reflect on Holmes and Watson because Ketlan, in hospital, reads about their successors, Poirot and Hastings.)
