One of the members of the core Wold Newton family is Rex Stout's consulting detective, Nero Wolfe. A large man with an amazing intellect who never likes to leave his brownstone, Wolfe may resemble Mycroft Holmes, but he's actually the illegitimate son of Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler. This was first put forth by William S. Baring-Gould and many Wold Newton scholars as well as some who study "Sherlockiana" have accepted this.
Toobworld Central does as well for the televersion of Nero Wolfe, as there doesn't seem to be any TV productions to negate the idea. ("Sherlock Holmes In New York" takes place in an alternate TV dimension.)
Here are a few YouTube videos dedicated to the Nero Wolfe of Earth Prime-Time, played by Maury Chaykin.

Maury Chaykin's interpretation of the character is considered the official Nero Wolfe of Toobworld, even though William Conrad's version aired first. That's because the ambience of the novels by Rex Stout is better represented by the characters, the time period, the locations.
William Conrad's televersion is one of those rare examples when the "original" ends up in the remake universe, like Art Carney in "The Strange World Of Horace Ford".
