In the latest chapter of the nefarious web-show-within-a-show Baker Street Adventures, Sofie… I mean, Sherlock Holmes, and Sursum… er, John Watson join forces (in person!) to review one of Steven Moffat’s favorite movies, and a big inspiration for BBC’s Sherlock. It’s the 1970 Billy Wilder comedy The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes!

Mendo and special guest The Omega have a sleepover and review the strangely morose story of a unicorn who suddenly realizes she’s the last of her kind, and goes on a quest with a magician to find out what happened to the rest of her species.

Watch as Ryan examines the end result: a bland movie-by-committee where nothing is at stake.
