An improvement over the same team's 'Hound', but Everett is no Holmes, 11 September 2006
Author: TrevorAclea from London, England

After the crashing disappointment of the BBC's recent version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, the producers have taken a positive step in replacing the truly dreadful Richard Roxburgh as Holmes. Unfortunately, Rupert Everett is only a mild improvement. Less of a crashing ham than Roxburgh, instead he comes across as a rather narcissistic and disinterested bachelor rather than a master detective, constantly striking brooding poses but never once convincing that there's either a human being or a brilliant deductive machine beneath them. Always an extremely limited actor, he brings little to the part beyond a reminder of how desperately uninteresting an actor he is when given centre-stage.

Thankfully, Ian Hart's Watson has been retained, and he's given a much better part than the moody and antagonistic reading in Hound. Similarly, the ill-advised mutual distrust and barely submerged hatred grafted onto Holmes and Watson has been dropped in favour of a relationship more akin to the cut 'Case of the Upside Down Room' section of Billy Wilder's The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, with Watson trying to save his friend from his drug addiction by interesting him in a baffling case (unfortunately they have also carried over Robert Stephens' horrendous white-as-a-corpse makeup job for Sherlock).

The case itself isn't overburdened with originality, at times playing like a more refined Dario Argento giallo without the gore as Holmes is drawn out of a drug binge to find the fetishistic killer of several aristocratic young girls, but it moves along at a decent pace and makes for an entertaining if undemanding 99 minutes despite an abundance of anachronisms and an overuse of the fog machine to hide the lower budget. It's just a shame that once again they've come up short one Sherlock.
