We all know what happened to Mr Holmes. he went off to keep bees.
Now we know why. It’s what his friend Watson wrote about him. not only that, his home is under siege by fans of his friend’s stories of the man.
BBC Films and Entertainment One have brought together an iconic character with an amazing cast to solve Sherlock’s last case. One that was unsolved but still haunts the great detective.
In 1947, the world famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro and her young son Roger for company. Cantankerous, demanding and frustrated with the mus-representation of him in Watson’s best-selling novels, he diverts his attention to an unsolved case. As the mystery deepens, Sherlock tries desperately to recall the events of 30 years ago that ultimately led to his retirement.
