Quotes

[first lines over opening credits]
[Shirley reads a message she found hidden in a family heirloom]
Voice of Sherlock Holmes: To the holder of this letter, my commendations. Solving the puzzle of the chest required more than considerable deductive powers. My work has consumed my life and I have produced no heir to follow in my path, but I picture you a young man of good imagination. Any mystery devised by mortal minds can be solved therewith. Yours faithfully, Sherlock Holmes.

Great show!
2 July 1999 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes is a great show for anyone who likes a good mystery. The actors do an excellent job portraying the characters, and because of that, you can really get into the show. It is funny, but also quite serious sometimes. Great for people of any age!
