Mr Sherlock Holmes.

Have you?

I, on the other hand, have

the same plan I've always had for you.

To see you swing

at the end of a hangman's rope!

And I have no doubt

that mine will be

the plan that prevails.

It's a pity about the chandelier.

It was the only item in the room

that showed the merest modicum of style.

Don't disturb yourself.

I'll show myself out.

Oh, morning, Watson.


How'd you work that out, Holmes, eh?

Do you mind awfully, Watson?

You know I have little head for humour

when there's nothing to occupy me

but staring out of rain-streaked windows

at the other side of the street.

It has been three days since I broke

the back of Moriarty's organisation

and there has not been a single letter

or a caller worthy of my attention.

As my official biographer, Watson,

you've precious little with which

to occupy yourself, these days.

You'll soon be afflicted with

the same boredom that I am suffering.

Oh, well, I'm certain things

will change before long, eh, Holmes?

By the 193/

within a fortnight's time you'll

be gettin' a letter from America.

How on earth do you know that?

Stealing a bit of your thunder,

eh, Holmes?

Mystified you, eh?


Well, listen to this,

in the theatrical section,

'Our Broadway correspondent reports

that on the 31st of this month

'Daniel Furman's production of Sir Arthur

Pinero's The Second Mrs Tanqueray

'will open at the Empire Theatre

in New York.

'In addition to Mr Kendal, Mr Huntley,

Mr East and Miss Campbell,

'the distinguished cast will include,

in her first non-singin' role...'

Irene Adler.

Dash it all, Holmes.

I was dead set of astonishin' ya.

You have, Watson.

Your ability to extract

the single item of unalloyed interest

from the mass of wordage of The Times
