Description

Watson is alone. His beloved wife, Mary, and the great Sherlock Holmes are gone. London seethes with false reports and rumours. 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 the Napoleon of Crime; towards 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 (TV's Brittas Empire). 'Superb, authentic, an excellent production' (BroadwayWorld.com) 'Wonderfully acted, mesmerising' (TheReviewsHub.com)

. An engrossing and classy Fringe show.
Clever take on classic literature.

A mesmerising performance from an actor who was engaging as Watson, and equally convincing as the voice of Holmes and Morriarty. We were hooked for the entire hour as the story unfolded; related with a stoic English reserve befitting Dr Watson. A beautifully played performance, highly recommended.

Excellent one man show about Watson’s life with Holmes and the aftermath of his supposed death. Well considered and brilliantly acted.

What a show! Even if you are not a Holmes fan, Tim's performance was so beautifully nuanced as to have me at once laughing and crying helplessly. His deft balance of humanity and pathos carried us through the excitement of the narrative to the heartbreaking conclusion. He stayed outside afterwards, inviting us all to meet him, and when he saw what a state I was in, hugged me tightly, thanking me profusely. Amazing. See this show while you can.

Excellent one man show! Brilliant interpretation of the Holmes stories putting Watson front and centre. And it works splendidly! 5 STARS MUST SEE
