Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Perfidious Mariner

It is the long, oppressive summer of 1912. Four months- ago the RMS Titanic was lost to the Atlantic. In Europe the drumbeats of war grow louder.

These things have yet to touch Mr Sherlock Holmes who, estranged from Dr Watson, lives in reclusive retirement on the South Downs. The world's foremost criminal investigator has turned his back on the past, hiding from the world and thinking himself immune to its excesses. Yet he is about to be faced by an old friend, to encounter the most hated man in England and to grapple with the painful implications of the Titanic disaster. More troubling still, he will be forced to try to solve a new and unexpected mystery - one of the most diabolical and fiendish murders with which he has ever been confronted…

The Judgement of Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes had many secrets. This is the greatest of them.

Our knowledge of the life and career of Mr Sherlock Holmes is necessarily partial and inexact. Riddled with lacunae and ambiguities, its parameters are defined chiefly by what his friend and colleague, Dr John Watson, saw fit to record. One era in particular - those enigmatic years in which, believed dead at the Reichenbach Falls, the Great Detective roved the world incognito - has been shrouded in obscurity and doubt, the particulars of that time too terrible and too strange to be set down in full.
 
At least, that is, until now…

 Starring Nicholas Briggs, Richard Earl, Tim Bentinck and Terrence Hardiman.
