Several government figures are shot to death, and it seems that it truly is the end of civilization as we know it- until the President learns that the grandson of Sherlock Holmes is living at 221B Baker Street, and send the Police Commisioner of Scotland Yard to employ him.

Arthur Lowe is a hoot, though, as Dr. Watson, bionic bits and all. "Good Lord."
