Goofs

At one point in the story, Sherlock Holmes encounters an American lawman named Eliot Ness (who in reality was to win fame in the 1920s for his efforts to enforce the Prohibition laws). Ness does tell Holmes that this is his "first case" in which case he must have been very precocious, the story is set in 1910, while Ness was born in 1903, which would have made him seven years old at that time.

Mediocre Sherlock Holmes pastiche
11 March 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Not really good, but not really terrible either. Starring Christopher Lee as aged Holmes, Patrick MacNee as Watson and Morgan Fairchild as theatre diva Irene Adler, this TV production has respectable but anodyne BBC costume drama look and so-so mystery. Script by Bob Shayne and British crime fiction writer H R F Keating is a bit dull, direction by Peter Sasdy lacks lushness of Twins of Evil (1971). Polluted by some atrocious dialogue, like "witty" (read: juvenile) mockery of gluttons - in Freudian terms, I am not in anal state to enjoy such antics - and enlivened by cameos from famous historical persons, this is a mediocre pastiche.
