  • Episode Description
  • Holmes and Watson return from a vacation to learn that a Holmes impersonator has been been at work. The phony told Lestrade to guard one jewelry store while he robbed another and stole valuables from a client he told to hide valuables in a biscuit jar. Setting a trap for the imposter, Watson poses as the visiting Maharaja of Gandoor who's traveling with his huge collection of jewels. As hoped, the master of disguise visits, posing as a reporter, and agrees to introduce the maharaja to the great (fake) Holmes.moreless

    • (Sir Arthur Treadley has stormed in and begun yelling at Holmes over the bad advice he got last week) Holmes: Yes, why don't you introduce yourself. Sir Arthur Treadley: Introduce? Mr. Holmes, what tomfoolery is this now? Holmes: You know my name, Sir. I wish I were equally informed as to yours. Sir Arthur Treadley: Do you mean to sit there and pretend you don't know who I am? Holmes: I not only do not know who you are, Sir, but I think I prefer it.

    • Lestrade: One thing more, Wilkins. If anything goes wrong tonight, do you know with whom the responsibility will lie? Wilkins: Well, I'd hardly like to say, sir. You're in enough difficulty as it is, sir.

    Trivia (3)

    • "The Imposter", aka Mr. Bellingbrook, aka Sherlock Holmes is called Tony Simmons by his henchman.

    • Holmes and Watson vacationed for a week in Brighton.

    • Holmes deduces that "Bellingbrook" is not a real reporter because neither the seat of his pants nor the elbows of his coat are shiny from sitting at a desk, and his spectacles contain merely ordinary glass.
