EPISODE 6: Sherlock Holmes Maths Competition – the GRAND FINALE!

SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE MYSTERY OF THE DEVIL’S EYE

FINAL EPISODE (6) – P I E C E S   O F   E I G H T

The story so far… Called to investigate the disappearance from Harrods of the world’s largest ruby, the Devil’s Eye, Holmes and Watson follow a trail of clues around London.  Moving between some of London’s darkest corners and brightest attractions, it becomes clear that they’re caught up in something far bigger than a simple jewel heist…

It also becomes clear that their every move has been manipulated from the start.  At the end of Episode 5, they find themselves led, in a humbling figure-of-eight, back to the very spot from which they started: 221B BAKER STREET.  And who’s been yanking their chain?  Why, their old nemesis MORIARTY.  And what is the real crime that he’s planning?  To use the Devil’s Eye as the key component in building the world’s most powerful EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) weapon – an 18 Megawatt monster, capable of knocking out any electronic device in a 10 mile radius,  including aircraft guidance systems…
