Conan Doyle done justice
26 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the two times in which Christopher Plummer purveyed the role of the world's most famous detective Sherlock Holmes, and he does his usual excellent job of acting.

Thorley Walters is one of the more prolific Wastons alongside many different Holmes actors, and he too is splendid. This was part of a British television series called "Tales Dark And Dangerous" which I saw on cable as a trio of stories from that same show. I chose to only tape this one, and it is remarkably faithful to its original story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (hence my title.) Later, Mr. Plummer would recreate the role in another splendid tribute to Sherlock Holmes, "Murder By Decree," though that film was not based on a Conan Doyle story from the Canon.

Still, what both stories have in common is that they both have their basis in fact. The story of Jack the Ripper in the film and in this one, it is based on a true crime solved by the very author and creator of our great sleuth - one where an Indian doctor was falsely accused of the destruction of a horse. This gives no real spoiler to this story, but it does give it, from my perspective, an interesting touch and maybe will make others want to see it or do the research - or both.
