⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Excellent one man show! Brilliant interpretation of the Holmes stories putting Watson front and centre. And it works splendidly. 5 STARS, MUST SEE"
"A mesmerising performance from an actor who was engaging as Watson, and equally convincing as the voice of Holmes and Moriarty. 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." EdFringe.com

Watson is alone. His beloved wife Mary and the great Sherlock Holmes are both gone. But London seethes with false reports and rumour.  It is time to set the record straight.

So Watson tells his tale... a tale of long buried secrets, betrayal and death. For there is a shadow in the gutters of London. A spider's web of poisonous intrigue lies across the city. Someone is playing a long game and Holmes and Watson face their greatest ever challenge. But as Watson unravels the story, is the game really over?

'Watson' is performed by Tim Marriott (The Brittas Empire; Allo, Allo) and directed by Bert Coules (BBC's The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; Cadfael; Rebus).
