Holmes and Watson are faced with cases that range from the suspicious to the seemingly supernatural, and they encounter characters as diverse as an evil Austrian adventurer, a formidable female criminal, a distinguished professor who is acting oddly and a mysterious tenant who refuses to show her face.
