From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol (2015-2016)

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol is a British play written by John Longenbaugh and directed by Adam Morley, performed by the Baroque Theatre Company between 1st november 2015 to 10 january 2016, starring Paul Andrew Goldsmith as Sherlock Holmes and Ivan Wilkinson as Dr. Watson.

The play is a mix of Sherlock Holmes and Charles Dickens' Ebenezer Scrooge.

Literature's favourite quirky detective is infused with the spirit of a crotchety Ebenezer Scrooge in this festive Victorian theatrical treat; there is so much to recognise and discover in this beautifully crafted story which combines these two iconic British institutions. After failed attempts by Dr. Watson to cheer Holmes into celebrating the holiday season, the unrepentant, ill-tempered detective is forced to deduce the facts and solve the most important mystery of his life – past, present and future. Experience a magical mix of Dickens and Doyle within this exhilarating visual and audio feast.
