Description

Watson is alone. His beloved wife, Mary, and the great Sherlock Holmes are gone. London seethes with false reports. It is time to set the record straight. So Watson tells his tale of long-buried secrets, betrayal and death; a journey across Europe pursued by Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime, and a deathly embrace at the Reichenbach Falls. Based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Watson is written with Bert Coules (BBC's Sherlock Holmes), performed by Tim Marriott (BBC's Brittas Empire). 'Superb, authentic, excellent' (BroadwayWorld.com). 'A grippingly fine display – outstanding.' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

Watson - The Final Problem
How delightful this show was. An excellent script leading the audience into the lives of Sherlock and Watson through Watson's eyes. So beautifully delivered by Tim Marriott to the extent you felt more like a friend he was sharing his thoughts with rather than an audience. And at the end you left feeling enriched by the experience. Well done Tim

This is a really fascinating interpretation of one of Conan Doyle’s most famous stories, and Watson: The Final Problem is an energetic and gripping hour of theatre.
