Synopsis

A television movie about the great detective Sherlock Holmes, as he finds himself revived in the 1980s. Jane Watson, the great-granddaughter of John Watson, Holmes' perpetual companion and chronicler, inherits his home in England. After traveling there to see the house, she discovers a body in the basement in a state of suspended animation. The body is that of Sherlock Holmes, who was exposed to Bubonic plague and had his body frozen in hopes that it would be revived in a time when a cure would be available.

Jane, a struggling private detective in Boston, manages to have the body revived. She takes Holmes back to the States with her, where he helps her to solve a case.
