4/5

"It's great fun, simple as that"

WhatsOnStage
4/5

"The mystery’s difficulty is well pitched, neither impossible to solve nor painfully obvious, while the succession of different areas are full of detailed notes, props and newspapers for you to riffle
through"

The Stage
4/5

"From hidden hand-written letters to actors with an unwavering commitment to their character (that withstands even our toughest interrogation), the production quality is consistently impressive"

Culture Whisper
4/5

"With as many clues as red herrings scattered about, the intrigue is satisfyingly twisty, and meatier than most immersive theatre shows"

4/5

"The whole experience is massively fun – like an immersive version of Cluedo"

The National Student

"The production has the depth and credibility we’ve come to expect from Les Enfants Terribles"

The Independent

"The world you are in is beautifully realised. Holmes’s office is a riot of leather-bound books and ephemera, the docks seem to scuttle with rats, a train carriage is so effectively rendered that you could quite happily sit there for the whole hour, fantasising about the golden age of steam"

The Telegraph

"Start bold, stay bold, and there is plenty to get your teeth into here"

The Times

"It’s a lively, fun experience for those who like to solve a mystery"

A Younger Theatre

"Fine performances by some uber-talented and quick-witted actors throughout the evening"
