The Case of the Second Sight is the thirteenth and last episode of the first season of The Adventures of Shirley Holmes, that originally aired on 30 July 1997.


Concerned that Shirley still believes her mother is alive in Rawanda, Shirley's father insists that the girl detective visit a psychotherapist.

In the waiting room, Shirley meets another uncomfortable patient, Rebecca Ratcliff. The actress begs off of her appointment because, after glancing at Shirley, she "remembers" an previous appointment with her mother in Rawanda. Intrigued, Shirley follows her to a nearby theater to find out what caused this remarkable outburst and is asked to appear in "A Midsummer's Night Dream" - a production that is dogged by unexplained accidents.

Shirley discovers that the "accidents" are the work of a saboteur and she sets out to discover who wants to prevent the play from ever opening and why. - Written by David Bassler
