What is it?

So begins the classic Conan Doyle 1892 Christmas short story mystery “The Blue Carbuncle”.

Set in central London and the West End, we find Holmes and Watson tearing around the capital in search of a priceless gem stolen from the hotel suite of the Countess of Morcar. But how did the jewel end up in the throat of a goose, fatted for Christmas, and why is Holmes examining a battered old hat belonging to a Henry Baker when Watson calls?

Ed Glinert, editor of Penguin Classics’ Sherlock Holmes stories and prolific London tour guide, reveals the story while taking you around the London haunts connected with the tale on this Zoom version of his regular Christmas walk.
