Storyline

Without a case to occupy his restive mind, Holmes breaks his ennui by agreeing to investigate the story of an amateur cartographer who stayed overnight at the rented lodge of another map enthusiast but awoke in the morning to find his host and servants mysteriously missing. Holmes finds he has a rival in the ambitious and publicity conscious Inspector Barnes, who sees himself as The Great Detective's peer and is reluctant to share information with him. When the Spaniard is found bludgeoned to death, Barnes suspects his mulatto servant, but Holmes directs his efforts in a different direction. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)

So-so
29 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The direction and plot line is rather muddy, perhaps intentionally to keep viewers in the dark. The repeated use of mirrors becomes an annoying gimmick rather than a stylistic feature. Brett's choices for the Holmes character are at times surprisingly odd relative to other episodes. The rest of the acting is uneven. A few of the motivations and reasons are not adequately explained in the end. Some of the shots seem poorly lit. This episode is one of the worst in the series. However, Freddie Jones stands out in a quirky role as Inspector Baynes, a detective trying to one-up Holmes and who turns out to be more intelligent than he at first seems.
