When Sherlock Holmes faked his death at the Reichenbach Falls, he had very important reasons to do so. Eventually, he finds himself in the situation to explain them to Watson, to convince his friend that there really had been “no easy way out” for him.
How does this fit in with my story of “A Circle Closes”, given that the story takes place during the hiatus, i.e. between “The Final Problem” (Reichenbach Falls) and “Empty House” (Return to London)?
Well, read my book (currently only available in the US, sorry) and find out, haha!!
But seriously: There is so much emotional conflict surrounding the whole story arc of Sherlock Holmes’ “death” and return, and that’s what this video is about, and you will find a lot of it in “A Circle Closes” as well.
