Watson THM (1) (1).jpg


1894. Watson is alone. A broken man. His beloved wife Mary and the great Sherlock Holmes are gone. But London seethes with false reports and rumour. It is time to set the record straight. Time for Watson to tell his story...


A tale of long buried secrets, betrayal and death! There is a shadow in the gutters of London. A spider's web of poisonous intrigue lies across the city. Someone is playing a long game and Holmes and Watson must face their greatest ever challenge.


Based on the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, written with Bert Coules (BBC's The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; Cadfael & Rebus) and performed by Tim Marriott (The Brittas Empire, Allo, Allo, Love Type D). The 'superb' (Broadway World) and award winning one man show, returns for one & two night touring from April 2024


Available for evening & school matinees. Victorian literature & Sherlock Holmes Sign of the Four is currently on the  KS4 English Literature curriculum.
