Small-time actor Sheridan Haynes has a rather unhealthy preoccupation with Sherlock Holmes. So when the chance comes for him to play the famous detective in a TV series, it seems his dreams have come true. And when London becomes plagued by a series of unsolved murders, well, it seems only natural for him to take his role into real life. Is this a case of a laughable and misguided actor, or is Sheridan actually on to something?
Julian Symons was a British crime writer and poet. He also wrote social and military history, biography and studies of literature.
