Sherlock Holmes' Christmas Turkey or The Case of the Nebulous Nun

Sherlock Holmes' Christmas Turkey or The Case of the Nebulous NunT0
A Burlesque Farce: Christmas Eve at 221b Baker Street. Mrs Hudson, wanting Nigel the Turkey killed, needs someone with 'a handy chopper'. Holmes and Dr. Watson are guarding the McNish-McNosh Plans for the Navy's new secret weapon - a recoilless gun. Captain James Riddle ('Call me Jimmy') has lost the cargo of Brandy he needs to sell to marry Bessie Backstay; landlady of the Bishop and Bumboatman and a connoisseur of Norwegian Whalermen ('harpoons a-tremblin' in their hands') Montague-Fortescue-Superglue's son, Will, a struggling poet, ('O can I get a spot on Radio 4?') has been arrested by Inspector Lestrade for the murder of local W.I. temptress Prue Puddingclub. Sister Neptuna ('I take a missionary position with seamen') arrives claiming to be Holmes' long-lost niece - but seems more interested in the Naval Plans. Circling all is Lord Ned of Neddington, a society necrophile with an urge for 'cold, rigid, brain-dead things.' As the Christmas winds rage outside (and in); the Great Detective and his associate fight against time, the elements, and the bailiffs as they try to save Captain Riddle and Bessie's Romance! - Will from the Hangman! - Lord Ned from the Ebay taxidermist sites! But most importantly - The McNish-McNosh Plans and - 'The Empire'.
