youthful Holmes in a largely pastiche series
12 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Long unavailable because of rights issues, 'Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson' was the second Sheldon Reynolds series featuring the great detective. The first time featured Ronald Howard as a young and earnest Holmes with H Marion Crawford as a sturdy Watson; this version has similar casting with Geoffrey Whitehead youthful (but more sardonic than Howard) and Donald Pickering the perfect partner as Watson.

Like the 1950s series, Lestrade is a bit of a comedy sidekick, this time played by Patrick Newell (Mother from The Avengers). While he collaborates with Holmes and Watson they do enjoy getting the better of him.

Most stories in this series are pastiche rather than adaptations of Doyle tales; however there is a sterling 'Speckled Band' and versions of stories we first saw Howard/Crawford tackle, like 'The Baker Street Nursemaids'. Whitehead does aim at the more cerebral side of Holmes, and his darkness - something you'd never expect the chirpy Howard to do. I would have liked to see this actor in more straight versions true to Doyle.
