Jenn and I went to see The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes at Hoxton Hall a couple of days ago. The posters promised “a Music Hall musical of elementary magnificence” with “more Victoriana than even Prince Albert could handle”. Intrigued, but not sure what to expect, we trotted along just past Liverpool Street and weren’t disappointed. A Holmes that reminded me of Jonny Lee Miller in his mannerisms and general attitude; a Watson who wore the loudest suit that I’ve ever seen on a stage and a moustache that meant business, and some fantastic ladies—foremost of all Bella, whose cunning and wit is a fair match for Sherlock Holmes, but also a brilliant Mrs Hudson.
