Synopsis

Not actually based on a Conan Doyle story, this is an original BBC drama scripted by Allan Cubitt, starring Rupert Everett as the eponymous Victorian detective and Ian Hart as his assistant Dr Watson. Holmes is in retirement, but is drawn out by Watson after the body of a young girl is found in the Thames, asphyxiated by a silk stocking. Holmes quickly deduces that the girl is of the aristocracy, and shortly afterwards another society lady goes missing, her body later found with the same type of stocking lodged in her throat. Knowing that there is now a dangerous killer on the loose in London, Holmes must use all his famous powers of detection to solve the crimes before more innocent women are murdered.
