During their stay the butler disappears after he has been dismissed for prying into family documents, examining details of the Musgrave ritual. Then, when Rachel (Johanna Kirby), the housemaid, vanishes Holmes begins to employ his deductive powers.

But on the way back to London something is nagging in Holmes' mind...
