Storyline

With the British Prime Minister desperately seeking an absent Sherlock Holmes' assistance, the great detective's brother Mycroft steps in to solve the theft of the Mazarin Stone, a huge diamond taken in broad daylight from a museum display. The precious gem was soon to be returned to its original owners, the French, as a gesture of goodwill by Her Majesty's government. The inability to do so may now lead to a diplomatic incident. Using brother Sherlock's extensive files on society's criminal element, Mycroft soon focuses on Count Sylvius as the likely culprit. Dr. Watson has more time to spend in his surgery with his friend away but he is visited by two women with a mystery that would have been perfect for Holmes. They say their brother, who happened to be one of Watson's university professors, with a fantastic tale of a huge inheritance due them if only they can locate a third person that shares their own unique surname. As in turns out, the two cases are not unconnected. Written by garykmcd

Doctor Watson: What about Baker Street?

Horrible
7 March 2013 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

This episode turns out to be a real failure. It combines both Conan Doyle stories, "The Mazarin Stone" and "The Three Garriebs " and as a result it is extremely clunky and unwatchable. Brett was ill at the time, so they wrote Mycroft into the script and to have him with Watson. As much as I like Charles Gray's Mycroft he is being wasted here. The script shifts gears in way that doesn't seem to create any flow. The pacing and the editing are off-putting. Even the direction is strange and at times overboard (especially towards the end). For all the good acting, production values, and music it is otherwise a mess. All of the episodes in this series can vary in quality but this one may rank as worst of them all.
