Victorian Detective Fiction?

Hey there! :D

I have recently read all of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories - and adored them! :3
And so, in keeping with the marathon of Victorian detective fiction that I've been reading these past few weeks, I'd love any recommendations of novels that are:

a) Victorian mysteries written in the era (anywhere from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s is awesome)
b) Similar setting and so on but written by modern authors (because I've read Philip Pullman's Ruby in the Smoke series and loved that too!)
c) If it's steampunk that's also fine!! :DD
d) Any novels that may be focused on other characters in Sherlock Holmes (e.g. from Lestrade's point of view perhaps? I don't know if these exist however... : / )
e) ANYTHING similar that you just want to recommend~ :DD

Hope you can help me - and thank you so much in advance! :3
PS: So sorry if someone has already posted this question in the recent past... D:,
