Description

Found at the corner of Goodge Street, a goose and a black felt hat. Mr Henry Baker can have the same by applying at 6.30 this evening at 221B, Baker Street.

It’s the 27th of December and Sherlock Holmes has a new mystery to solve. Who is the unlucky owner of the festive goose dropped on Tottenham Court Road on Christmas morning – and just how much do they know about the priceless gem hidden inside it?

In this classic Christmas tale, Holmes and Watson take us on a riotous ride through London in search of the answer to a most singular and whimsical problem.

‘The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work gives him a unique place in English letters.’ – Stephen Fry

‘Now, as in his lifetime, cab drivers, statesmen, academics, and raggedy-arsed children sit spellbound at his feet… No wonder, then, if the pairing of Holmes and Watson has triggered more imitators than any other duo in literature.’ – John Le Carré

‘Holmes has a timeless intelligence that puts him head, shoulders and deer-stalker above all other detectives.’ – Alexander McCall Smith

‘Holmes is a mesmerising creation and Conan Doyle a master storyteller.’ – The Times

‘The world’s most famous detective.’ – Ruth Rendell
