Dr Watson uses his now-retired friend Sherlock Holmes’ techniques to solve a mystery, with the help of some old acquaintances
Sherlock Holmes has retired and taken up beekeeping – but Dr John Watson has a mystery to solve.
In the new play Life After Sherlock, at the Manor Pavilion Theatre in Sidmouth, Dr Watson uses the deductive techniques he has learned from his old friend to try to find out the truth.
The touring play, by Devil’s Drum Productions, sees Dr Watson discovering that the reason for his late wife Mary Morstan’s death may not be as it seemed at the time. He enlists the help of old acquaintances including Inspector Lestrade and Mrs Hudson, in a story that takes him from Baker Street to clandestine meetings across foggy London, and even to a séance.
Although Holmes is officially retired, he is never far away in this tale of blackmail, murder, suicide, deceit and treasure.
