Sherlock Holmes Society of London reviews The Curse of Sherlock Holmes by Dhanil Ali
Posted by Steve Emecz on
"Back in March I was sceptical when I learned of a play that was about tour the north-west: “Somewhere between the fact and the 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.” I don’t know how it came across in performance, but the published script by Dhanil Ali (MX Publishing, 2013) is thought provoking and dramatic, without being unnecessarily sensational. Since the protagonist is Jeremy Brett, however, the disclaimer: “All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental,” is decidedly disingenuous."
The Curse of Sherlock Holmes is available from all good bookstores including in the USAAmazon, Barnes and Noble, in the UK Amazon, Waterstones, and for everywhere else Book Depository who offer free worldwide delivery.
