Trivia

In the film's opening scene, Holmes is seen smoking opium. It is subsequently implied that this is a regular occurrence. This represents a contrast from the character of the Conan Doyle stories, in which his drugs of choice were morphine and cocaine. In the stories, Holmes only smokes opium once as part of a disguise.

Quotes

Dr. Watson: Once again, Holmes, you've deliberately held me at arm's length. I really think you might treat me with a little more frankness.
Sherlock Holmes: My profession would be a drab and sordid one, Watson, if I did not sometimes set the scene to glorify the results.
Dr. Watson: You have a peculiar secretive streak in you, Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes: The only safe plotter is he who plots alone.
Dr. Watson: Thank you for that vote of confidence.

Truly Great adaptation
26 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the silk stocking is an original story and not an adaptation of one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyles.

It is a much darker and more realistic story than some of the other adaptations which have graced our scenes.

The Great Detective was portrayed by Rupert Everett who does a fine job at it. To me he is a great Sherlock Holmes he portrayed the character well and was faithful to the books as well as adding his own touches, Although he did not wear the characters trade mark dear stalker hat he was a more realistic Holmes.

His partner Dr Watson is also given his own story line in the film and is not just a bumbling sidekick or a piece of the scenery as in some other adaption's This adaption of the story had a recently retired Holmes take on the case of a serial killer who was murdering young women in a most unusual way, with plot twists and turns around every corner.

This BBC TV movie was truly breathtaking and has to be seen to be believed. hopefully the BBC will make a follow up with the Rupert Everett as the detective again.
