Idiosyncratic performance, there are better versions.
11 August 1999 | by (JACKSONVILLE, OR,USA) – See all my reviews

Tom Baker's performance as Holmes displays mannerisms that could only be called idiosyncratic, and, for me at least, were displeasing. The basic story is well covered, though, and collectors of Holmesiana might like to have a view or a tape if it should come available. The Basil Rathbone film is miles ahead so far as Holmes atmosphere is concerned.
