Storyline

Sherlock Holmes agrees to investigate suspected murders in a village whose ancestors had killed a prominent family a century ago that they thought were vampires. These deaths appear to be linked to a descendant of that family, a man who seems to have something malevolently supernatural about him, much like a vampire itself. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Excellent departure from familiar Holmes plots
26 June 2003 | by (Chancellorsville VA) – See all my reviews

I echo the earlier comments that we hard-core Holmes fans should welcome new stories, or pastiches, when well-done and in keeping with the spirit of Holmes and Doyle. This effort is a perfect example of why we should accept some departures or "new," non-canonical material and not just criticize by reflex.

I also had a bit of trouble following the first viewing, mostly due to some interrupting phone calls, but for the second session I pulled the phone plug and it all made sense. Not a clear, straightforward plot as Doyle always gave us, but easy enough to follow if not distracted -- and definitely worth the effort.

I believe Doyle would have wholeheartedly approved, especially since his tale of the "Sussex Vampire" was arguably the lamest of all the canon. This is what Doyle COULD, and SHOULD, have done with the vampire theme.

I also draw the line at ludicrous time-jumps (like Rathbone's Nazi adventures), and I do not want to see Holmes fighting space-aliens, but offerings that are scrupulously true to Holmes' character and times are most welcome -- especially when this finely crafted and well-acted.
