Storyline

Banker Eddie Van Coon and reporter Brian Lukis are both shot dead in identical slayings, in rooms locked from the inside. Chinese museum employee Soo Lin tells Sherlock Holmes that, as a teenaged orphan in China, she ran drugs for the Black Lotus crime syndicate, for whom the two dead men also worked. She too is then murdered, the killer being a human fly who can scale buildings. The gang mistake Watson for Holmes and capture him and his new girl-friend, requiring Holmes to come to the rescue.

Trivia

Watson, nicked for graffiti, is given an ASBO (Anti Social Behavio Order). ASBOs are civil orders restraining someone from specific petty criminal acts like harassment, vandalism, trespass without carrying the weight of a criminal prosecution. It is what you throw at petty criminals instead of jail time. See more »

Don't worry. Next date won't be like this.
13 March 2019 | by Bored_DragonSee all my reviews

A serious decline in quality compared to the first episode. I saw it last night and I already forgot what was it about. It is not boring, but leaves no impression. A hollow episode, full of genre cliches.

6/10
