Inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The American Wild West and Victorian England collide in this original adventure tale. The year is 1887, the occasion is Queen Victoria’s Jubilee, and the coincidences are suspiciously piling up. The creative team behind 2013’s hit The Hound of the Baskervilles is at it again with more thrills, more laughs, and more unbelievable deductions.
Tim Gouran, Darragh Kennan, Christine Marie Brown, Alex Matthews, Marianne Owen, Andrew McGinn, Cheyenne Casebier, Charles Leggett, and Rob Burgess.
