Watson: The Final Problem.

There is a shadow in the gutters, a spider’s web of poisonous intrigue plagues the city and Dr John Watson must face his greatest ever challenge.  

It is 1894. Watson is alone. Sherlock Holmes and his beloved Mary are both gone. London seethes with false reports and rumour. It is time to set the record straight.

So Watson tells his tale of long buried secrets, betrayal and death, when the intrepid detectives faced their nemesis, the Napoleon of crime, Moriarty. But as Watson takes us on a ripping journey across Europe to the Reichenbach Falls, is the game really over?

Tim Marriott (TV’s Brittas Empire) re-enacts the last Sherlock Holmes adventure from the perspective of unsung hero, Dr John Watson. The play is created in collaboration with Bert Coules, the BBC’s Head Writer on adaptations of The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The performance is followed by a post show talk back with Bert and Tim.
