StyleAn action packed farce that takes us to 221B Baker St in 1898 and to a secret house just roundthe corner.
SynopsisThe story of how Holmes Hardy, the postman, became Sherlock Holmes, the world famous detective. It tells of how he managed to get the money to support his opium and violin habit without having to work, of how Dr Watson Hardy, Holmes's hapless brother, sex therapist and practitioner in the treatment of sexual deviancy, became his partner and how Maurice (Morrie) Hardy, the older, evil brother became Holmes’s arch enemy. The desperate search for a secret formula written on the back of a Penny Black stamp involves not only the Hardy boys but their dotty parents and the sinister Russian Misha Ivanovich, who all have secret pasts which unfold before us with increasing riotous action.

SynopsisThere's excitement at the 'Kings Arms' when it is announced that the King is expected in the neighbourhood. Then the actors arrive - not so much strolling players as players on the run, not wishing to be recognised, so at first it is very convenient to be mistaken for the king. At least until the real king arrives. (And, since the King is George III, it's no surprise that it all gets a little mad.)
