A farcical flip-flop on the detective duo of all time - Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Dr Watson (Ben Kingsley) is the inimitable 'crime doctor' whose deft deductions make the most obscure clues 'elementary'. Holmes is nothing more than his fanciful creation and is actually Reginald Kincaid (Michael Caine) an unknown, drunken stage actor hired to play this figment of Dr Watson's imagination. Only slightly more incompetent is Inspector Lestrade (Jeffery Jones) and there is a not-so-sweet young thing (Lysette Anthony) who leads the heroes astray. This is Holmes and Watson as Conan Doyle never knew!
