This is a Sherlock Holmes story with a difference. Here Dr Watson is the ace detective and has been using an actor to play the part Holmes. Holmes is a drunken actor and gets on Watson's nerves. When Watson tries to go it alone, he doesn't have much success, so he is forced to let Holmes take all the credit once more. Written by

The name of the three-masted barque featured in the movie was "Kaskelot" which is from the Danish language and translates into English as "sperm whale". The sea-going vessel has appeared in numerous film and television productions. The big boat is a real life replica of a tall ship and is one of the largest remaining wooden ships in commission. It was built by J. Ring-Andersen in 1948 and as such was constructed after the Victorian period featured in the film. The 'Sqaure Sail' website states that the 'Kaskelot' was "originally commissioned by the Royal Greenland Trading Company to supply the remote East Greenland coastal settlements, and subsequently as a fisheries support vessel in the Faroe Islands".
