Scotland Yard is the crime-busting team formed by Dick, Dorothea, Tom Dudgeon, and the three Death and Glories to investigate the crimes and collect evidence to solve the mystery of the casting-off of boats in The Big Six.
Tom said "Coot Club shed's going to be Scotland Yard ... " and Mrs. Dudgeon gets cook to let Scotland Yard have a jug of tea (BS14). Dorothea took down the sign in the Coot Club shed reading "The Coot Club" and wrote "Scotland Yard" on the reverse (BS15).
- "It'll be all right in the end." said Dorothea. "Scotland Yard always wins." (BS17)
Scotland Yard was the headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police force (now located at New Scotland Yard).
