- Program Description
This program opens with Watson on holiday in England's Lake District while Holmes is left behind in London. Only Watson's letters, describing his fellow hotel guests and their activities, pique his interest. It is Watson's fascination with the extraordinary Lady Frances Carfax in particular that draws Holmes' interest. But Lady Frances also attracts the interest of the other guests, including the wheelchair-bound Major Albert Shlessinger and a mysterious black-bearded horseman who watches her from the distant fells and who casts, in Watson's words, "a shadow over her life."
