Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon

Synopsis: Working for the British government, Sherlock Holmes manages to spirit Dr. Franz Tobel out of Switzerland and into England before the GESTAPO are able to get to him. Tobel has devised an immensely accurate bomb site and while he is willing to make it available to the Allies, he insists on manufacturing it himself. Soon however, he vanishes and it is left to Homes, assisted by the bumbling Dr. Watson, to decipher a coded message he left behind. Holmes soon realizes that he is up against his old nemesis, Professor Moriarty.

knowledge of the classics

might come in handy.

But how can we get

across the border

and through France?

There's no need

to get across.

This very moment a

Royal Air Force plane

is waiting for us at the

secret landing place.

How long before we

arrive in London?

In a very few minutes.

We're passing

over Dover now.

Thank you.

You'll have to get used

to our London

blackouts Dr. Tobel.



Dr. Watson is a

very untidy fellow.

And what, what are we

going to do

with, with these?

A problem of the most

elementary nature,

my dear Dr. Tobel.

You arent going

to keep them here.

And I have

always believed

in the theory

originally projected

by Edgar Allen Poe,

the American writer,

that the best place

to hide anything

is where everyone

can see it.

Yes, but...

You will remember

no doubt

in Poes story "The

Purloined Letter".

And the missing

in question

was always in plain view.

Hands up, gentlemen.

Scotland Yard, quick.

Oh, my goodness.

Good evening, Mrs. Hudson.

Oh, why it's Mr. Holmes.


Hello Watson old fellow,

it's good to

see you again.



Who do you want?

Oh yes, you're

Scotland Yard.

I'm afraid there's

been a little mistake.

No need to get angry.

We all make

mistakes at times.


Well if we didn't

you'd be out of a job.

Dr. Tobel, this is my

friend and associate

and as you may observed

my watchdog, Dr. Watson.

How do you do, sir?

How do you do?

Dr. Tobel and I flew in

from Zurich this evening.

You can put that thing

away now, Watson.

Dr. Tobel awarded

the maximum request

for physics in 1939.

My dear Watson,

there is only

one Dr. Tobel.

Without Mr. Holmes

there would have been no

Dr. Tobel I am afraid.

But I thought you were

living in America sir.

I have been working
