A gripping new play by John Goodrum based on the classic story The Final Problem
The world’s most successful detective takes on the world’s most notorious villain … Sherlock Holmes, brilliant, flawed and inclined to justice, finally confronts Professor James Moriarty, brilliant, flawed and wholly inclined to evil!
When Holmes arrives unexpectedly at the door of his old friend and colleague Dr Watson, at the beginning of this hugely entertaining new version of the classic Conan Doyle tale, he begs the good Doctor’s assistance for one final case … and an exhilarating evening of mystery, chase, disguise and detection are the inevitable result, culminating in a breath-taking showdown at the tumultuous Reichenbach Falls.
Starring Ian Sharrock, who will be hugely familiar to audiences from his ten years as Jackie Merrick in Emmerdale. His other TV appearances include Heartbeat, The Bill, Casualty, Where The Heart Is and, perhaps most memorably, as Jed Maxwell, Alan Partridge’s biggest and most scarily obsessive fan in I’m Alan Partridge.
Also starring Nicholas Briggs, who is best know as the voice of the Daleks and the Cybermen in BBC’s Doctor Who. His “in the flesh” TV appearances include Torchwood, Lewis and The League of Gentlemen. Nicholas has also recently appeared in Noel Clarke’s hugely successful feature films Adulthood and 126.96.36.199.
