Plot Summary

After a four month absence, Sherlock Holmes returns to Baker Street following several attempts on his life. Holmes had been away on an important assignment for the French government - recovering the Mona Lisa that had bee stolen from the Louvre. He was successful in his task and appropriately rewarded by the French but he raised the ire of the crime's perpetrator - Professor Moriarty. On the morning of his return, the Professor visited Holmes in his flat and warned him to cease or he would have no choice but to take extreme measures. With several attempts on his life having already taken place, Holmes and Watson head for Switzerland. Moriarty is a relentless pursuer however and he and Holmes have a fateful encounter at the Reichenbach Falls. Written by garykmcd

Quotes Sherlock Holmes: [voiceover] I had not been back in Baker Street more than half an hour when...
Mrs. Hudson: [Holmes places French Legion of Honour medal in his desk drawer as he hears Mrs. Hudson outside his rooms] But you cannot go up there, sir!
Moriarty: [Holmes then takes a small pistol from the desk drawer moments before Moriarty bursts in through his door] You have less frontal development than I should have expected.
[notices Holmes' hand in his pocket]
Moriarty: It is a dangerous habit to finger loaded firearms in the pocket of one's dressing-gown.
[Holmes slowly removes the small pistol from his pocket, cocks it, and carefully places it on the table in front of him]
