Overview for New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Were the hauntings at the Elizabethan manor house of Bly a vision of the walking dead, perhaps, rather than delusions of Miss Temples tormented mind? Or could it be that a criminal conspiracy is to blame for the psychic phenomena, as well as a second murder cunningly concealed in the past?
In the New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the indefatigable detective, and his assistant Dr. Watson, will track down the perpetrators through the occult underworld of Victorian London.
Next, on the eve of World War I, he is confronted with fraud and forgery at the Royal Navy Academy in The Case of a Boys Honor. Back in London, behind the scenes of the Herculaneum Theatre in the Strand, The Case of the Matinee Idol embroils Holmes and Watson directly in an apparent on-stage murder. How did poison get into two Shakespearean goblets when only the victim, now dead, had access to them and the most likely suspect was a mile away with an unbreakable alibi?
