Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Trigger Warning

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Trigger Warning


In The New Adventures of Old Sherlock, a brand-new series, Holmes and Watson return to the site of their most famous case – and discover someone is hounding the Baskervilles!

Sherlock Holmes needs a holiday, so Dr Watson has taken him to Dartmoor, where they find a very changed Baskerville Hall. The gaunt, gothic mansion has gone: it’s now an eco-friendly, zero-waste yoga retreat.

But trouble is (cold-)brewing beneath the solar panels. Someone is stirring up hate against the supposedly “woke” agenda at Baskerville and is sending anonymous death threats, in the form of a gun’s trigger and the word ‘BEWARE’! Even worse, there are reports that the slathering hell-hound on the moor has returned!

Can Holmes and Watson negotiate the heightened emotions between different social media tribes, without getting themselves permanently cancelled – or even murdered*?

*I mean looking at their track record, ‘yes’ is probably the answer, but it will be fun finding out!
