Sherlock's Last Case archiveA death threat delivered to 221B Baker Street scarcely ruffles the feathers of the legendary Sherlock Holmes - the bearer of the message is the daughter of his arch enemy, the late Professor Moriarty. A second threat, and the discovery of his faithful side-kick, Dr Watson, tied up in a closet, does little to shake the great detective's nonchalance in the face of impending death. However, now, he's intrigued. Employing his powers of deduction and the assurance that he's always right, Holmes and Watson embark on a bizarre and fascinating case that eventually brings Holmes face-to-face with his avenger. Is this the end of the most famous detective in the world? The answer, my dear Watson, is elementary. True to the spirit of Conan-Doyle's original Sherlock novels, this black comedy has all the suspense and intrigue of a great detective story whilst poking gentle fun at the super sleuth's eccentric personality.
