When explaining to Doctor Winslow that his famous fictional exploits were based on fact, Sherlock Holmes tells her that his cases were "...rendered into over-dramatic narrative by an Irishman, named Conan Doyle." Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was in fact Scottish. See more »
This would have proved to be a fun series if produced. The Sherlock Holmes, not usually my favorite character, was well cast and Deborah Farentino would have been a fine addition. Not as serious as the Doyle novels, of which were relatively low brow. The story was interesting and well staged. Its too bad that some have taken them seriously, but when taken with a good mood, I guarantee you could really enjoy this little lark. Living in San Francisco for a number of years it was nice to see the old city. No, it isn't classic mystery, but really, neither was the source material. All in all a well paced breezy mystery worthy of attention it never received.
