- Cambridge Arts Theatre - Sherlock Holmes: The Final Curtain - Mon 9 - Sat 14 July. starring ROBERT POWELL AND LIZA GODDARD. Could this be the final curtain
for the world's greatest detective? Sherlock Holmes lives in retirement on the South Coast. He keeps bees, occasionally casts his fly fishing rod,
even plays his Stradivarius when the rheumatism allows. All too aware that he's older and slower, he's concerned that he might have lost his touch,
paranoid that he is an easy target for his enemies. So when Mary Watson, wife of his former associate Dr John Watson, tracks him down, telling him she
has seen her long-dead son James through the window of 221B Baker Street, Holmes is determined to solve the mystery and confront his own demons
at the same time.
