Trivia

Edward Hardwicke originally wore "lifts" so as to be closer in height to Jeremy Brett. Unfortunately Hardwicke found it very difficult to walk wearing them, so they were disposed of. See more »

Spectacular Return Indeed.
19 August 2013 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Jeremy Brett returns in more ways than one, in these equally outstanding adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories featuring the brilliant Sherlock Holmes, whom Doyle was compelled to bring back from the waterfall where we thought all was lost...

David Burke did not return as Watson, but instead Edward Hardwicke stepped in, and did an exemplary job on how to take over a role without any fuss or controversy, so seamless was his transition.

Again, all stories are as masterfully put together as "Adventures", and there is nothing to nitpick or complain about; this is as good as it gets!
