Storyline

Sherlock Holmes has been missing for two days, and Dr. Watson frantically summons Inspector Lestrade to help him search for the detective. The two of them find a letter asking Holmes to take a case on behalf of a shop owner, so they visit the man's shop. But the proprietor denies any knowledge of Holmes, and he also denies writing the letter. Watson's suspicions are aroused, and when Lestrade finds Holmes's hat and coat in the shop, they are sure that they are on the right track. Written by Snow Leopard

Quite the Disguise
29 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rather forgettable episode where Watson and LeStrade find themselves comrade as they suspect foul play in the disappearance of Holmes. We find out fairly soon that we are much more perceptive than these two. Holmes is undercover and in a disguise. He is trying to capture an escaped convict who is getting messages inside a book. There are some amusing moments. The strangest is when they go to visit a judge whom they suspect is going to be the victim of the convict. Instead of being able to talk to him, they interview a pair of marionettes. It goes on and on and on. It's almost surreal. Eventually they are able to talk to the man and his wife. They are very bold people but find themselves in trouble. The conclusion is very predictable, especially if one was watching at the beginning.
