Sherlock Holmes is a timeless character, beloved by many. This is not that Holmes. The year is 1880, 11 years prior to the classic stories that we know, and we step into an alternate universe where monsters are not just under the bed but around every corner. Holmes must use all of his intellectual prowess to sort through this strange underworld of creatures once believed to be only the stuff of lore and children’s nightmares.
Having abandoned his career as a private investigator the quintessential sleuth is about to make the acquaintance of Dr. John Watson, and with the help of his peculiar new ally, as well as some re-imagined versions of other classic Holmes characters, he must endeavor to unravel a mystery that seems to be emanating from the very halls of justice itself. For you see, there is a terror at Scotland Yard!
