Episode Summary

EPISODE #117 - “THE ADVENTURE OF THE ENGINEER’S THUMB” (KEN PONTAC) INSPIRED BY SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE Victor Fatherly is a bio-engineer whose work on a new blood regenerator could revolutionize organ transplant work – if his competitor Michael Wooten doesn’t beat him to it. Now, someone has stolen both men’s inventions. But how? The safe housing Victor’s invention is protected by a biometric security system; only Victor’s thumbprint and DNA signature can open it. Similarly, Michael’s system uses his eye’s unique retinal scan as the key. Holmes investigates and discovers that someone has lured Victor’s girlfriend to betray both men, obtaining DNA from them so that the perpetrator could gruesomely engineer a cloned thumb and eye to break in! With the blood regenerator, the mastermind can now make a monstrous number of cloned organs. Holmes and his cohorts must find and put the Frankenstein-like warehouse out of business and foil the plot. Educational Message: Breaking a large problem into smaller, more manageable components often helps; solve each in turn.moreless
