The acclaimed National Theatre actor Robert Stephens said to the star of Granada TV’s Sherlock Holmes; Jeremy Brett; “Do not undertake the role of Sherlock Holmes. He will be your undoing”. “You must drop it Mr. Holmes, you really must. It will be your undoing” said Professor James Moriarty upon his first encounter with Sherlock Holmes. Somewhere between the fact and fiction Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s greatest creation stole the soul of Jeremy Brett, the actor who would become the embodiment of the Baker Street sleuth. The Curse of Sherlock Holmes follows Jeremy as he fights for his sanity…. His life. This is the full script of the play by Dhanil Ali.
