Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour
Dominic Goodwin returns to the Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond this July with Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour. Packed full of fun, mystery and drama, Goodwin plays the loveable character of Watson in this adaptation of a classic.

Brought to the Georgian by the Angus and Ross Theatre Company, Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour will re-enact one of the detective’s most baffling unrecorded cases – The Case of the Prime Minister, the Floozie and the Lummock Rock Lighthouse – an affair upon whose outcome the security of Europe once hung by a thread. Shrouded in secrecy until now, this case has finally been approved by the government for public disclosure.

It is also understood that Mr Holmes has been entrusted by Her Majesty with the conveyance to the Tower of London of the fabled Satsuma Stone, stolen from the crown of William of Orange in the seventeenth century and only recently discovered in Maastricht. It is expected that the evening will include a glimpse of this priceless gem; in which case, one can only be thankful that Professor James Moriarty, the Napoleon of crime, fell to his death at the Reichenbach Falls. Or did he? Or is he still alive, planning another deadly strike as he lurks, unseen, in the wings...?

Dominic, who is a very familiar face around the Theatre is best known in Richmond for his parts in Mother Goose, The Adventures of Sinbad, Frankenstein LIVE and Up Frankie. Join Holmes and Watson as they embark on their Farewell Tour. Don’t miss them. It’s elementary!!

Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour will be at the Georgian Theatre Royal from Wednesday 11th-Thursday 12th July.  For tickets and more information please contact the Box Office on 01748 825252 or visit
