Last episode for Cushing's Holmes
6 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Christmas broadcast (Dec 23 1968) of "The Blue Carbuncle" brought this season of Holmes adventures to a close, with the detective trying to recover the title object, a lost or stolen gem belonging to Lady Morcar (Madge Ryan). The holiday festivities do feature in the story, and provide the motivation for the rather surprising denouement. As always, Peter Cushing is a delight; his performances showed no signs of the hurried schedule rejected by previous Holmes Douglas Wilmer. Alas, he would go on to play the role only once more in the 1984 telefilm "The Masks of Death," opposite Sir John Mills (his co-star in 1954's "The End of the Affair") as a warm and serious Watson.
