So come on, work for me.

Season 4[]

Watson and Holmes question Hull when several people are murdered which are apparently linked to plans to build a controversial skyscaper that Hull's company is the developer for. Holmes discovers that the architect, Malcolm Busquet, made a miscalculation and needed an excuse to have the building be shorter. He murdered a woman who owned a building that Hull's firm had bought the air rights to so that her estate would be tied up in legal battles, forcing the building to be shorter without revealing Busquet's mistake. Holmes revealed this to Hull who agrees to co-operate in exposing Busquet, making Hull the hero and allowing him to run for office.[2]
