The Adventures of Shakespeare & Watson: Detectives of Mystery – Chapter One: Russian Sundae “The Detectives of Mystery find themselves on the run after Shakespeare steals a bag of cocaine from a Russian crime boss.”
Sherlock Holmes and Watson travel to William Shakespeare’s era to solve The Riddle of a Thousand Faces, but Professor Moriarty springs a clever ruse, breaking Sherlock’s “time cane,” causing a “temporal storm” that sends Sherlock and Moriarty to times unknown, and Shakespeare and Watson to the present in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Now, the unorthodox partners have formed a detective agency to fight crime while trying to figure out a way to get back to their own eras.
