He Wants His Way
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A reasonably good entry in the series. An ugly rich man wants to control the world. He is unhappy with his daughter's choice of a marriage partner and seeks to keep the event from happening. He offers the young man a fortune but he refuses. When they are arguing, the old man has a heart attack and is aided by the young man and his housekeeper. They get him his medicine. Shortly after this, the old guy dies. Because the young man was seen with a bottle in his pocket, it is assumed by Scotland Yard that he is the killer. The housekeeper goes to see Holmes and Watson and things develop from there. There is huge circumstantial evidence which makes the great detective suspicious. The case is almost too easy. There is a satisfying conclusion which makes this particular episode a worthy choice.
