Trivia

Producer William Sterling was keen for the second series to take its cue from the works of Alfred Hitchcock, advising his directing team to view Psycho (1960) to gauge the tone he wanted the stories to take. See more »

"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.
