Trivia

A brief establishing shot of Baker Street, with a street-cleaning cart passing by, is actually a piece of footage from "The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes" (1970). See more »

Goofs

The police inspector played by Terence Rigby is named "Layton", but was supposed to be the more famous Inspector Lestrade. You can clearly see Ian Richardson and the other actors mouthing the name "Lestrade" throughout the production, but for some reason they were all dubbed over with "Layton". See more »

If you have eliminated the impossible...
29 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

A handsome production, with atmospheric sets, picture-perfect casting and a welcome dose of humor, but somewhat spoiled by a few schlocky moments (like Holmes' fight with the cannibal dwarf) and an arguably wrong structure that reveals too much of the mystery, too soon. Still good for fans of the character or the genre. (**1/2)
