It has been claimed that Vasili Livanov, the actor who plays Holmes in this excellent Soviet TV series from the 80's, is one of the best Holmes actors. I do not speak Russian but I was able to get hold of a Russian DVD with English subtitles. This episode is a version of "The Final Problem" which is accurately told although there have been some additions and alterations. And yet you can feel that these small alterations do not contradict the spirit of the original story. This TV series is able to portray the atmosphere of the Victorian daily life perfectly as I imagine it and certainly stands on one level with contemporary British productions.
