Yuri no Tsuioku
A newspaper article about a vandalized painting catches the eye of William James Moriarty. Recognizing the artist from his childhood days in the slums, he takes his brother Louis with him on a trip to the city of Bath to meet with the artist personally and identify the culprit. However, the person claiming to be the painter is not the man William remembers. Joined by Sherlock Holmes and John H. Watson, William looks for clues in order to find his old friend.

Moriarty-ke no Kyuujitsu
The Moriarty household faces its biggest crisis to date: hosting a tea party. Mysterious and closed off to the public, the Moriarty home hides an abundance of weapons, research, and other tools used in their underground activities. To keep their secret safe from overly curious—and completely smitten—aristocratic women, the entire team must maximize their skills and protect their base of operations at all costs.

Yes, these are worth watching, stand-alone episodes that are just as entertaining as the rest of the series.

But WHEN should you watch them?

There are 2 episodes in this OVA. The first episode fits in the best between season 1 and 2 IMO, but it can be watched practically anywhere after Sherlock and Watson get introduced. The 2nd episode fits in the best between episodes 6 and 7 in season 2, so if you want to watch them both at the same time then I'd reccomend watching them both between episodes 6 and 7 in season 2.

Of all the stand-alone episodes in this whole anime ...

Mixed Feelings
All in all if you liked the anime, this is more of the same in many ways, so you'll probably like it. If you're looking for improved story, the first OVA is all right, and Sherlock is in it. The second is fluff and Moriarty-centric.

The art was about on par with the main series, with the usual very pretty backgrounds and variably okay-looking main characters (which is funny when episode 2 has a tropey bishounen/ikemen moment meant to wow us with how "gorgeous" the Moriarty + co fam are and it's just... really unimpressive because the characters just aren't drawn well or by and large ...
