Foul Play: Crime Series

I have so many questions about Holmes and we are sure you do too, so in this episode we will be answering some of them. Let’s start with Why Did Holmes Kill Pitezel? Holmes had written to Mrs Pitezel from prison just before she was released and the letter included the phrase [quote] we never quarreled [end quote] Well, this is Holmes we are talking about, so it won’t come as any surprise I am sure, that what he wrote was pure fiction.
