Lord Blackwater

One thing about Sherlock Holmes, the movie - and since you ask, I thought it was just marginally bearable if you imagined it being about two other men of the same names - was that I found it odd that Lord Blackwater, the villain, seemed to be quite well respected for his social status, which I thought unlikely for someone who seemed from his title to be either a baronet or the younger son of a peer. Americans, I know, always seem to think that being a lord is the same thing as being 'Lord X' - we all laughed heartily at that 'Lord Marbury' episode of West Wing - but Guy Ritchie is theoretically a Pom and should know better.
