Story about a hoax
10 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hugh Fraser plays Sherlock Holmes. He played a character named "Hastings" with Agatha Christie's "Poirot" in several seasons. He is just right for the part. He is smart, looks like a Sherlock Holmes and is over 6ft like most of the Sherlock Holmes actors.

This is a series with several episodes on different subjects. It included Sherlock Holmes in this one. It is 35 minutes long and Sherlock has very little to say. Dr Watson/Ronald Fraser does all the talking. He starts to read out loud story in the newspaper while on the train about bones discovered by a scientist who later named them the "Piltdown Man."

It the same paper there is a story that this it is a hoax. I don't know why they called this "Murder on the Bluebell Line" none took place that I could see, it was more about history of bones these bones.

The thing that came out of the story for me was Sherlock explains the fraud and not everything that is proof of science is true.

I was disappointed in this movie but not of the acting by Hugh Fraser.
