So what really happened at the climax of Parade's End?

24-09-12

BRITAIN is buzzing with theories about how Sherlock Holmes appeared to be dancing at the climax of Parade’s End.

Writer Tom Stoppard hinted it involved a screwdriver, a teacup and a plain white handkerchief

The gripping storyline ended with Holmes seemingly surviving the First World War trenches only for him to reappear moments later with a woman in front of a fireplace.

Tom Logan, an avid man from Finsbury Park, said: “Sherlock had gone undercover as a jerry and carefully inserted a blank bullet into a machine gun.

“He then burrowed his way back under no-man’s land and counted the number of shots before he got out of the trench.

“Therefore he was able to pretend to be killed and get on a train to London while Watson was distracted by a witty remark made by a feisty suffragette.”

Helen Archer, from Peterborough, added: “He would have been hiding behind a tree, but it had already been chopped down by that bitch Sylvia.

“And he wasn’t really dancing with Valentine. He was dancing with a bin lorry.”
