Trivia

Practically all of the first, Wilmer, series survives intact - the first half of "The Abbey Grange" and the second of "The Bruce Partington Plans" are currently missing. The Cushing run fares far worse, with only "A Study in Scarlet", both parts of "The Hound of the Baskervilles", "The Boscombe Valley Mystery", "The Sign of Four" and "The Blue Carbuncle" still known to exist.

"Occasionally engaging yet occasionally stodgy."
27 June 2004 | by (Poole, Dorset) – See all my reviews

The cases of the infamous Baker Street sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, and his loyal companion Dr Watson.

A careful and occasionally engaging series, but despite stellar casts, the acting was at times variable and the direction often tended to be stagy in a stodgy theatrical way typical of BBC programmes at that time. Peter Cushing replaced Douglas Wilmer as Holmes in 1968 and he gave a cracking performance in Hammer's "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" (1959 - see my review), but occasionally his talents didn't quite shine here.

I recently picked up the BBC's three DVD set entitled "The Sherlock Holmes Collection", featuring five episodes. My favourites are "The Blue Carbunkle" and "The Boscombe Valley Mystery". It is avaliable at £19.99 in good music and video stores.
