The Return of Sherlock Holmes
The Return of Sherlock Holmes

 

“The Empty House”
Did Sherlock Holmes survive his apparent demise at the hands of Professor Moriarty in “The Final Problem”? Clearly so, as his resurrection three years later in this story is a dramatic and happy event–though it causes his old friend Dr. Watson (Edward Hardwicke) to faint at the sight of him. Jeremy Brett is outstanding as the famed sleuth, whose return from what Sherlockians call the Great Hiatus is challenged by one of Moriarty’s most murderous lieutenants (Patrick Allen), already a killer on the run in London. The action is swift and exciting, and the colorful reentrance of Holmes into the life of Dr. Watson is a highly memorable event. With Rosalie Williams in a more extensive part than usual as the wonderful Mrs. Hudson, Holmes’s Baker Street landlady.

Lyrics:

THE CIRCUS AT THE END OF THE WORLD
(spoken)
“Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the circus at the end of the world! Tonight, for your pleasure, we will laugh, and cry, and dance, and sing, but don’t worry! None of it means a thing!”

(sung)
Welcome ladies, girls and boys
To this place of light and noise!
Where dancing beauties spin like tops,
And skillful craftsman show there chops.
We laugh and cry year after year,
But don’t look closely, theres no tears.
Nothing to say no thoughts to give,
We are so imaginative!

In my words theres nothing hid.
No deep meaning…I just kid!
All for your pleasure, light as rain.
Nothings hidden, there’s no pain.
Hear the stories fancy free.
Hear these tails of fantasy.
No real journeys, no real pain,
No understanding left to gain!

Lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie!
