01.)                     INTRODUCTION                                G0100

Welcome to The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel
for the PC, an adventure game by Electronic Arts. It was also released on the

There were two games in the 'Lost Files' series, although later Sherlock Holmes
games may still be considered part of it. The only games released by EA were
the 'Serrated Scalpel' and later on the 'Rose Tattoo'.

The walkthrough for this game is complete although some work may still be done
from time to time. If you spot any errors or have suggestions please feel free
to e-mail me about it. Enjoy!

02.)                    BASICS                                       G0200

You control Sherlock Holmes with the mouse and use the commands at the bottom
screen to interact with people and objects.  Right click to use the interacting
object's default action, which would be 'Talk' for characters for example.

You cannot die in the game which is very good and you cannot get stuck like in
many Sierra adventure games from the past. Quite often it is advised to talk
to Watson for help or check your journal. Each area is very detailed and many
items to find and interact with. When a new location opens up, go there to
check it out in the hope of advancing your story. There are many ways to find
information that will progress the stories, so if you do not follow the guide
below you do not have to take the same path to find locations and important
information. In other words, there are several ways to advance the game for
several puzzles, but once so often there is just one unique action that will
uncover a new lead.

When it says TALK to somebody then usually you should talk about everything
possible. If you talk to the person again and all the answers are grayed out
then the person's knowledge has probably been exhausted for now. Keep in mind
that sometimes there are multiple choices after a grayed out option.

If you can't get this game to run on a new computer then I advise playing
without the sound as it might work. Otherwise use an emulator such as DosBox
to emulate an older PC but you might still have sound problems. Newer and
future versions will most likely improve on running the game.

There are a few ways to solve some puzzles and find out information. They will
all end up at the same location in the end. The differences are very minor. All
this means is that you do not need to follow the walkthrough 100% to finish the
game, and I highly recommend trying to play this game without looking at it too
much. Or replay the game to find those other ways to get Holmes closer to
cracking the case.

PC vs 3DO:
The game was released on both DOS and 3DO platforms. The DOS version exists in
two varieties. The more common Disk version only has speech in some movie
sequences, whereas the quite rare CD version contains speech through the entire
game. The 3DO on the other hand was well enhanced to include video captures of
every character who talks. You can turn this option off in the setting if you
prefer to skip through the conversations. There are also obvious control
differences on the console. Usually I would never play an adventure game
without a mouse, but in case it is actually all right. The only nuisance I have
found was trying to exit a location without bumping into the "Look at Exit"
default action.

03.)                    WALKTHROUGH                                  G0300

___221B Baker Street___

You start here. OPEN the door and exit the screen. Go to the Alley.


LOOK at the corpse, then LOOK specifically at the knife wounds, LOOK at the
abrasions, LOOK at the knife wounds, LOOK at the white powdery residue and
finally PICK UP the white powdery residue. PICK UP the battered paper and the
iron bar and TALK to Inspector Lestrade until you get Sarah Carroway's flat
address off him. Enter the backstage entrance of the theatre.

Inside, PICK UP one of the flowers in the bouquet, the handwritten card that
came with it, the shiny spring underneat the wardrobe and the perfume bottle on
the desk. LOOK at the stain in the corner of the door frame. TALK to Sheila and
then to Wastson about a sedative for her. Holmes will automatically give Sheila
said sedative and to her again several times to find out more information. TALK
to Henry Carruthers and GIVE him the spring to repair the door. LOOK at the
perfume bottle to make the Belle's Parfumerie appear on the map (we do not need
to go there for now). Leave and go to Sarah Carroway's Flat.

___Sarah Carroway's Flat___
LOOK at the laundry basket and PICK UP the sweater, you do not actually take
the sweater along. LOOK at the rugby sweater to find out about the Kensington
Rugby Club. PICK UP the umbrella near the fire escape and PICK UP the brass key
that fell out. For fun you can open the tea pot and the bed ends but apart from
that you are done here already.

___221B Baker Street___

Inside, USE the flower on the lab table. In the close-up view, USE the flower
on the microscope, then USE the matches to light a flame and USE the flower
with the flask (test tube). Exit and USE the powdery specimen on the lab table.

USE the powdery specimen with the test tube, USE the matches to light a flame
and finally USE the powdery specimen on the test tube again to get the results.

Open the door to leave the home and TALK to Wiggins outside. Ask for assistance
and GIVE him the flower, then leave the area. Come back, leave and come back
once again for Wiggins to have returned. TALK to him about the flower for the
required information. Ride1 to the Covent Garden.

___Covent Garden___
PICK UP the wire basket with flowers on the nearby barrel and USE it with the
barrel itself to get the cuff links. TALK to the girl Lesley about a
description, say you are looking for a more detailed description yourself, then
GIVE her the handwritten card. Enter the pub on the right.

You have two choices of getting information from the publican. PICK UP the
feather, a feathered dart and LOOK at the picture on the bar and the one over
the bar as well. Also LOOK at the trophies around such as the snake skin near
the dart baord and the tiger's head above the entrance. You can blackmail him
into releasing information or you can ask him to play a game of dart. Before he
will play darts with you, you need to challenge all the drunks in the pub
first. The game itself is easy and unlikely a regular dart game you just need
to hit 0 without needing a double or triple. When you have beaten the publican
he will also tell you everything you want to know, for instance the chemist on
Hattington Street. Ask about the cuff links to find about Bradley's Tobacco

___Hattington Street Chemist___

TALK to the chemist and ask about the stock boy. TALK to him again and buy
something, then ask if you could speak to the boy. TALK to Richard several
times and find that he's not guilty.

___Bradley's Tobacco Shop___

Attempt to MOVE the cigar crate only to get stopped by the Alfred the shop's
assistant. TALK to him and mention it is of vital importance to continue the
investigation without any hindrance. MOVE the crates several times until they
are stacked near the moose head and then LOOK at it. PICK UP the moose head to
find out the origin of it.

___Oxford Taxidermy___

PICK UP the knife and the smock hanging near the fireplace. LOOK at the knife.
TALK to Lars until you get serious and he reveals the information. Watson
recommends using a canine for a better search of the docks.

___Old Sherman's___
TALK to Old Sherman and USE the leash on your canine friend, Toby. You will
automatically end up at the docks.


OPEN the shed door behind Holmes and PICK UP the hammer. MOVE the barrel, LOOK
at the pail and PICK UP the pail. MOVE the barrel again to PICK UP the rag. USE
the pail in the Thames and USE the rag on the pail. Then USE the wet rag on the
window and LOOK inside. Talk to Watson about it if you like and USE the hammer
on the door. After a few scenes you'll end up back at 221B Baker Street.

Briefly go to the Alley to make the Morgue appear on the city map.

___Southwark Morgue___
Talk to the coroner and ask about the items. Look at all of them but you are
not authorized to take them with you. You can also get some of the powder you
took earlier, in case you have not. Talk to inspector Gregson and he will refer
you to Inspector Lestrade at Scotland Yard. By the way you can look at two more
corpses if you feel like it.

___Scotland Yard___
Attempt to enter the main doors but you can not get past the guard here, TALK
to him and then quickly head back to the Southwark Morgue. Ask Inspector
Gregson about helping you out on this one.

Back at Scotland Yard and finally inside, TALK to the Duty Officer. Ask about
being allowed to talk to a prisoner go get a note, then ask if Lestrade is
available but unfortunately he is not. Go outside and TALK with the apparently
blind vendor. Threaten to expose her and go back to TALK with the Duty
Officer. Be nice to him and he'll send for Inspector Lestrade. Talk with him
about the morgue items and TALK to the Duty Officer for a pass.

___Southwark Morgue___

TALK to the coroner again to show him the pass and see the items. PICK UP the
large key and leave.

USE the large key on the backstage door. USE the brass key you found at the
flat earlier on the drawers. LOOK inside the top drawer and PICK UP the
contents. Tell Watson you must have them. Carruthers will tell you the location
of the Chancery Opera House.

___Chancery Opera House___
GIVE the tickets to the first usher and TALK to the manager, Mr. Epstein. He
won't let you see the dressing room so GIVE the tickets to the second usher and
go upstairs. GIVE your tickets to the elderly woman and TALK to her about
everything. When the show starts, go downstairs and GIVE the note from Mrs.
Worthington to Mr. Epstein.

You will get access to the dressing room but can not actually investigate here
properly yet. Attempt to OPEN the drawers and then OPEN the door. Watson will
mention a distraction so TALK to the manager again to see the room. TALK to
Watson and let him go through the wardrobes. OPEN the drawers and LOOK through
the middle one. PICK UP the contents of the middle one, a ring, and OPEN the
door to leave.

___Belle's Parfumerie___
TALK with the Belle and ask about a customer. His description is that he uses
macassar oil, is very tall, unsure of built and he has black hair. She will
mention a rugby player. TALK to her again and order the La Cote D'Azur perfume.
When she disappears, talk to the cleaning lady and ask about the customer. She
will reveal he smokes Senior Service cigarettes. We now have enough information
to find him on the rugby team.

___South Kensington Field___
TALK to the coach several times about the player you are looking for who smokes
Senior Service cigarettes. He will call over Sanders (if he still wants a name
you forgot to talk to the elderly lady at the opera house about it). Talk to
him and he want you to prove he is involved with any woman. GIVE him the
perfume you picked up at the Alley dressing room and he will admit in buying it
and that he lives at the Eaton Dormitory.

___Eaton Dormitory___
TALK to James Sanders until he wants proof of the death and kicks you out. Go
to the Morgue and ask the coroner. You can not have the only document available
so head home to 221B Baker Street to ask the newspaper man Jonas. No luck, all
sold out. TALK to Wiggins and he will hand one over. Return to the Dormitory
and GIVE the newspaper to James. TALK to him about everything to get two more

___St. Bernard's Publick House___

TALK to the spectator and pay him for information. He will tell you to ask the
guy opposite the pool table. TALK to that guy (Nobby) when he is not busy
playing and pay him for information. It will take several attempts until you
finally get the option. Still not good enough. Try to talk to Jack Mahoney but
no luck. TALK to the bartender about Jack's marital status and TALK with
Mahoney again until he finally gives you the information. Leave.

___Antonio Caruso's Flat___
TALK to Antonio Caruso about the boy and the death. He will give you the
information where Anna lives and that the little boy wants a gyroscope.

___221B Baker Street___

TALK to Wiggins about his gyroscope to get it - for a price of course.

___Picnic Site and Playground___

USE the gyroscope on the soletary boy. GIVE it to him and you'll get some
information. When the boy leaves, PICK UP his hat and LOOK at it. It comes
from the Eddington's Equestrian Shop.

___Eddington's Equestrian Shop___

TALK to the shop keeper but he will not reveal any information. LOOK at the
coat of arms at the west side of the shop and to get the information.

___Anna Carroway's Flat___

USE the bell pull and then USE the door knocker. Finally USE the ring of keys
from your inventory to open the door. Inside, PICK UP the two calling cards and
MOVE the left plant. Go upstairs and TALK to the housekeeper about the plant
you spilled. MOVE the statue behind the door and PICK UP the book. LOOK at the
diary (was the book) in your inventory. Also LOOK at the two calling cards you

TALK to the busy receptionist to find that Gardner had a strange meeting at
the Zoo. GIVE her your business card. Then OPEN the door to leave.

___The London Zoological Gardens___
TALK to Constable Dugan about what happened. OPEN the gate and go left. LOOK at
the shiny object. Go right twice and LOOK at the corpse and it's slash wounds
and broken leg. TALK to Inspector Gregson about the moved body. OPEN the door
to the office and TALK to Hollingston about everything. He will reveal a staff
member's address where we will go next.

___Simon Kingsley's Flat___
LOOK at the picture of Felix next to the entrance and the boots near the
fireplace. TALK to Kingsley about everything and he will admit the body was in
the lion's cage and help you retrieve the shiny object. OPEN the door to leave.

___The London Zoological Gardens___

OPEN the main gate and go to where the lion cage is and PICK UP the shiny
object. LOOK at the closed pocket watch in your inventory and then LOOK at the
paper you found.

typwriter to smash the door and watch the scenes.

Return to the agency and OPEN the broken door to the inner office. MOVE the
comfy chair and MOVE the shelf of books that was hidden behind it. Optionally
you may want to pick up the I.O.U. paper that was underneahth the chair. USE
the piece of paper with the combination you got from the shiny object at the
Zoo on the safe and PICK UP the contents inside. LOOK at the pendant and the
letter you find inside. Finally we'll go talk to Lord Brumwell. MOVE the comfy
chair back, OPEN the main door to leave.

___Lord Brumwell's Mansion___

04.)                    ITEMS                                        G0400

A Calling Card:
This card bears the name of Antonio Caruso, printed in an almost illegible
Florentine script. Found in the home of Anna Carroway.

A Closed Pocket Watch:
A gold-plated watch attached to a fine gold chain. The latch is encrusted with
mud and there is a small dent in the bottom edge. Otherwise it is in good
condition. Opening the watch reveals an inscription. A piece of paper is
attached to the inside of the lid below the inscription. You remove the piece
of paper for closer examination. Found in the lion's cage at the zoo, becomes
an open pocket watch once it is examined. Belongs to F. Gardner who was
murdered here.

A Flower:
A pink carnation with dark veins in the petals. Sent to Sarah Carroway at the
theatre along with a handwritten card. After testing the flower at the 221B
Baker St. lab table this will be known to be a flower with iodine dyed petals.

A Handwritten Card:
The card reads: "Dear Sarah, What's in a name? A rose by any other name would
smell as sweet - A secret Admirer". Surprisingly, this is the product of a
feminine right hand with the habit of dotting the i's with tiny hearts. Sent
to Sarah Carroway at the theatre along with a a bouquet of carnations.

A Large Key:
A large iron key of the type usually associated with the locks of iron gates
or sturdy external doors. Found with the belongings of Sarah Carroway, turns
out to be the key to unlock the backstage door of the Regency Theatre leading
to the dressing rooms. We had access to this earlier but apparently no-one will
let you in once the police moves away from the alley.

A message requesting help:
A note from Lestrade asking Mr. Holmes to investigate the murder outside the
Regency Theatre.

A number of business cards (Holmes Card):
Several business cards. They read: "Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective, 221B
Baker St., London." You start out with these and may need to hand them over to
identify yourself, or to keep in touch with people.

A pawn ticket:
The bookmark found inside Robert Hunt's flat is actually this pawn ticket at
closer inspection.

A piece of paper with numbers on it:
A piece of paper with the numbers 11-17-86 neatly printed in a bold masculine
hand. Found inside the pocket watch that was in the lion's cage at the zoo.

A silver key:
Found inside the desk drawer at the palmist, it opens the strongbox you have
uncovered nearby.

A small brass key:
A small brass key. It looks new and unused. It is probably a duplicate key, to
be used in case the original is ever lost. Found inside the dining room of
Brumwell's mansion, it unlocks the doors.

A theatre playbill (Paper):
The playbill is dated two nights ago. On the back is a message which appears to
have hastily scrawled, "S. Meet me outside the stage door after the show, I
have important news, B". Found in the alley outside the Regency Theatre.

An Open Pocket Watch:
The watch is still maintained and is keeping perfect time. The inner lid bears
the inscription, "F. Gardner, 25 years of loyal service." Found inside the
lion's cage at the zoo, first closed but you can examine it to find a paper
inside. Belongs to F. Gardner who was murdered here.

An ornate key:
This is a small ornate iron key. It has no significant markings. Found inside
the tarot box.

Analysis Results:
In addition to common soap, salt of tartar, and camphor, analysis reveals trace
amounts of powdered, highly toxic, arsenic. The combination suggests Becoeur's
arsenical soap, a common preservative compound. This analysis is a result of
examining the powdery substance found on Sarah Carroway, by using it on the
lab table. at 221B Baker St.

Beecham's Tablets:
This glass bottle holds twenty-five unadorned, white pills. Bought at the
chemist so he would let Holmes talk to the stock boy.

The bookmark is actually a claim ticket. Numbered 4450, it is made out to
Robert Hunt by Jaimeson's New and Used Goods, Newington. Found inside Robert
Hunt's flat inside a book. Becomes a pawn ticket when looked at once.

Brass Key:
A tiny brass key. It is too small for most door locks. It most likely opens
something smaller, like a drawer or a jewelry box. Found hidden in the umbrella
at Sarah Carroway's flat. This key opens up the drawers in the Regency Theatre
dressing room belonging to Sarah Carroway.

Calling Card:
This card presents the name and office address of a certain Jacob Farthington,
Barrister of Grey's Inn, London. Found in Anna Carroway's home.

Cigarette Butts:
Several crushed cigarette butts. They are common variety available anywhere in
London. Found in the alley outside the Regency Theatre. You can see the killer
smoke this in the introduction sequence.

Cuff Link:
A shiny brass cuff link with the initials G.B. inscribed upon it. Fished out of
the barrel outside of the Moongate Pub. These belong to a chap named Blackwood.

It appears to be Anna Carroway's diary. Her private thoughts, feelings, and
movements are recorded in a neat regular hand. The most recent entry is
lengthy. In brief it reveals that on learning her sister's death, she hired
some detectives - experts in the recovery of stolen property. She believed her
sister's jewelry would be pawned by the killer. The jewelry itself was not
particularly valuable, but a letter "whose value is beyond description" was
concealed in the pendant. The entry ends with the chilling sentence, "If they
are not successful in recovering the pendant, I will be alone in the world...
my poor sister dead and my child lost to me forever. This diary is found in
Anna Carroway's bedroom underneath a statue.

Eau de Seine:
A brilliant blue bottle of perfume labeled, "Eau de Seine". For sale at Belle's
Parfumerie but does not have anything to do with the actual case.

The distinctive curved head feather of a white cockatoo. Found on the floor of
the Moongate pub. Not used for anything as far I a know.

Feathered Dart:
A well balanced, feathered dart. The tip is slightly dulled with use. It is,
however, still sharp enough to play with. Red herring as far as I know.

Fleur de L'est:
A pink bottle of perfume labeled, "Fleurs de L'est". For sale at Belle's
Parfumerie but does not have anything to do with the actual case.

A very nice gyroscope, all young boys love one of these.

A heavy bung hammer, used by dock workers to hammer the plugs into the oak
barrels. The man who wields this sixteen-pound tool must be strong and
accurate. If he misses the mark, he'll shatter the barrel. Found at the docks

Found inside the detective agency, the writing on the paper reads only, "I.O.U.
12, 4s, 2d, HM."

Iron Bar:
This is a two-foot section of iron pipe. Both ends are corroded by rust. There
is a trace of rd pain on one end. This item appears to be a red herring at
first, finding it at the scene of the crime and all, but it will come in use
near the end of the game.

This knife found at the taxidermy could easily be mistaken for a surgeon's
scalpel were it not for the fact that the blade is slightly longer, and its
cutting edge is serrated, presumably to saw through an animal's hide.

effects of a Miss Sarah Carroway. Signed Sergeant Jeremy Duncan, Officer of the
Day, Scotland Yard. Retrieved from Scotland Yard and used to obtain items from

Eddington Street". Found at the Picnic and Playground Area. Paul himself leaves
this behind.

An ivory oval, approximately 3 inches in the long dimension, attached to a
heavy gold chain. The clasp is broken. A bird of some sort has been etched into

camphor. An envelope is sufficient to hold a small amount. Examining this on
the lab table at 221B Baker St. will result in analysis results.
