Holmes and Watson are brought to life by Julian Finnigan and Dominic Goodwin as they re-enact one of the detective’s most baffling unrecorded cases – The Case of the Prime Minister, the Floozie and the Lummock Rock Lighthouse! It’s an affair upon whose outcome the security of Europe once hung by a thread and shrouded in secrecy until now. The case has finally been approved by the government for public disclosure. It is understood that Mr Holmes has been entrusted by Her Majesty with the conveyance to the Tower of London of the fabled Satsuma Stone, stolen from the crown of William of Orange in the seventeenth century, and only recently discovered in Europe. One can only be thankful that Professor James Moriarty, the Napoleon of crime, fell to his death at the Reichenbach Falls. Or is he still alive, planning another deadly strike as he lurks, unseen, in the wings…? Written by Stuart Fortey, Directed by David Robertson, it’s fast paced entertainment and will provide many a titter! This is your final chance to catch Holmes and Watson as they embark on their farewell tour. Don’t miss them. It’s elementary!!

The show has toured for 14 years, the first tour happening in 2009. 2024 therefore, is the 15th anniversary of that first tour. It has been performed  some 275 times in venues from York Theatre Royal and Alnwick Playhouse to the smallest of all theatres: The Swallow Theatre near Whithorn! 1000’s of people have laughed with us and we hope there is still time for new audience members to join in the fun!

“Julian Finnigan and Dominic Goodwin respectively as Holmes and Watson give an outstanding performance. Finnigan excels as the straight man Holmes whilst Goodwin’s Watson is sheer comic excellence. A truly magnificent production guided through the hands of two masters of stage comedy.” Broadway Baby

“This two-man little gem is totally and delightfully, utterly bonkers… and is so funny it should come with a Government health warning.” Northern Echo

“For my part I can’t congratulate you enough for such an energetic, funny, evening’s entertainment. Everyone enjoyed a great evening out.” Promoter

“This is the company’s third visit and as usual came up trumps!” Promoter

“In these days of recession, this show is a truly delightful comfort blanket, and very funny to boot” Ripley Town Hall
