Before slipping into retirement, Sherlock Holmes has prevailed upon Dr Watson, his landlady Mrs Hudson and Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard to join him in a farewell tour of the British Isles.
For the first time ever they will re-enact one of the detective’s most baffling unrecorded cases – The Case of the Prime Minister, the Floozie and the Lummock Rock Lighthouse.
It is also understood that Mr Holmes has been entrusted by Her Majesty with the conveyance to the Tower of London of the fabled Satsuma Stone, stolen from the crown of William of Orange in the seventeenth century and only recently discovered in a midden in Maastricht.
It is expected that the evening will include a glimpse of this priceless gem; in which case, one can only be thankful that Professor James Moriarty fell to his death at the Reichenbach Falls. Or did he? Or is he still alive, planning another deadly strike as he lurks, unseen, in the wings…?
“This two-man little gem is totally and delightfully, utterly bonkers, and is so funny it should come with a Government health warning.” The Northern Echo
