Following the huge success of the UK premiere of A Sherlock Carol last Christmas, this ‘winning crossover mystery’ (The Guardian) returns to Baker Street!

This critically acclaimed production has been loved by London audiences, bringing ‘a wonderful festive play to get the entire family in the Christmas spirit’ (Lost in Theatreland) that ‘entertains from start to finish’ (Broadway World).

Three Christmases since the Reichenbach Falls, Sherlock Holmes has little appetite for mince pies or for solving crime. Wandering through Victorian London, he meets a grown-up and not-so-Tiny Tim Cratchit who implores him to investigate the mysterious death of his reformed benefactor, one Ebenezer Scrooge. 

An impossible murder, a threatening letter, and a missing diamond – it’s just enough to intrigue the great detective. But it’s a dark and treacherous Christmas Eve, and once again the night is haunted by the spirits of the past, present, and future. Using his powers of deduction, can Holmes overcome his own ghosts to crack the case?

★★★★ The Times - “A merry evening with a genial mashup of Dickens and Doyle”

★★★★ The Guardian - ““Delightful …A fresh festive mashup"

★★★★ Broadway World - “Handsome and intelligent”

★★★★ Lost In Theatreland - “An evening of comedic yet heartfelt redemption”

★★★★ Love London Love Culture - “a great addition to the festive season”

★★★★ London Theatre 1 - “An enjoyable and refreshing treat”

★★★★ My Theatre Mates - “Cleverly done and beautifully portrayed, a theatrical treat”

★★★★ London Living Large - “A delightful new staple to our holiday celebration”
