Quite a superb production sadly l have seen this on a poor quality DVD copied from a cable screening,my godfather Thorley Walters played Watson and was true to form his portrayal was excellent. The location filming must have been in the west county as it was made by HTV. Although dated l feel like many other HTV series such as Smuggler and Arthur of the Britons it could justify a release on DVD. Thorley was quite underrated by some as an actor but was great at adding his own quirks and adapt ions to the written script. Christopher Plumber again was the perfect choice as Sherlock Holmes and interestingly the actress Julie Chambers was born in Bristol home of HTV now ITV West. Sadly ITV West does not produce drama productions in fact the studio's no longer survive,one of the last series made at HTV was Brain Izzard'S Talent Trial a forerunner of Pop Idol that l worked on as script adviser.
