CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Who Shot Sherlock?

Series 5 - Episode 11 Who Shot Sherlock?



The scene that greets the investigators in this repeat from 2005 is about as weird as it gets. Apart from a dead body with a gaping bullet wound in its head there’s a deerstalker hat, a violin, a meerschaum pipe and a Persian slipper with tobacco stuffed in the toe. It is, according to Gil Grissom, a meticulous reconstruction of the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes.

The body belongs to Sherlock obsessive Dennis Kingsley, while the three main suspects (including one played by The Shield’s Catherine Dent) are his fellow detective fans. But was Kingsley murdered or did he commit suicide?


Greg tries to discover who murdered a Sherlock Holmes fan in his perfectly reconstructed Victorian-era study, and realises he may have been killed by a fellow enthusiast who coveted one of his rare books. Meanwhile, Warrick and Nick examine the death of a motorist, and discover damage to his vehicle that points to an unusual explanation. Gary Dourdan, George Eads and Eric Szmada star.
