Episode #015 – The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet

Bery-01Join Angela, Scott, John and Tabz as they discuss “The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet.” In this story, a banker, Mr. Alexander Holder of Streatham, makes a loan of £50,000 to a socially prominent client, who leaves the Beryl Coronet — one of the most valuable public possessions in existence — as collateral. Holder feels that he must not leave this rare and precious piece of jewelry in his personal safe at the bank, and so he takes it home with him to lock it up there. He is awakened in the night by a noise, enters his dressing room, and is horrified to see his son Arthur with the coronet in his hands, apparently trying to bend it. Holder’s niece Mary comes at the sound of all the shouting and, seeing the damaged coronet, faints dead away. Three beryls are missing from it. In a panic, Mr. Holder travels to see Holmes, who agrees to take the case.

Episode #014 – The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor

download (1) Join Angela, Scott, John and Tabz as they discuss “The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor.” The story entails the disappearance of Hatty, Lord St. Simon’s bride on the day of their marriage. She participates in the wedding, but disappears from the reception.

The events of the wedding day are most perplexing to Lord St. Simon as it seemed to him that his bride, Miss Hatty Doran of San Francisco, was full of enthusiasm about their impending marriage. St. Simon tells Holmes that he noticed a change in the young lady’s mood just after the wedding ceremony. She was uncharacteristically sharp with him. The only thing out of the ordinary at the church where the wedding took place was Hatty’s little accident: she dropped her wedding bouquet and a gentleman in the front pew picked it up and handed it back to her.
