Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the 5-Ws

WHO was the dastard - Moriarty again?
WHAT was the reason for kidnapping Watson, my friend?
WHEN did Moriarty strike?
WHERE could Watson be?
WHY is Moriarty always instigating dastardly deeds?



For Harry Horseman's 5-W's contest

    Cool theme, Sherlock holmes. Are you a Robert Downy Jr. fan? I think you are really up on those stories. Congratulations. I think I never read the Sherlock stories, only saw a few movies.

    You may well ask. It is elementary, my dear ~. Moriarty is the alter-ego of Holmes :-) Congratulations, Gail! Love, Suzette
