A special preview of a new one man play by Bert Coules and Tim Marriott.

John Watson is alone. His beloved wife Mary and the great Sherlock Holmes are both gone. But the world seethes with false reports and rumour, and at last the time has come for the truth to be revealed.

So Watson tells his tale... a tale of deeply buried secrets, betrayal and death. For there is a shadow pervading London. A spider's web of poisonous intrigue lies across the city. Someone is playing a long game and Holmes and Watson face their greatest ever challenge.

But as Watson unravels the story, is the game really over?

Based on the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 'Watson: The Final Problem' is performed by Tim Marriott (The Brittas Empire; Allo, Allo) and written by Bert Coules (BBC's The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; Cadfael; Rebus) and Tim Marriott.
