I would like you to meet Ruby and Garnet. They’re twins, identical and inseparable – and do absolutely EVERYTHING together. But their lives are about to change.

Sherlock Holmes – the world’s greatest detective. Living in retirement on the South Coast, he keeps bees, occasionally casts his fly fishing rod, even plays his violin - when the rheumatism allows.

This chilling, gripping drama is filled with unforeseen twists and revelations.
