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.
