pretty good TV adaptation
19 January 2009 | by Prof-Hieronymos-GrostSee all my reviews

The body of a man is found dead in a deserted run down house, Inspectors Gregson and Lestrade are both on the case, meanwhile in Baker Street, Holmes(Peter Cushing) is baffling Dr Watson(Nigel Stock) with his deductive powers, which includes his claim that he will be called on to the case. Sure enough he is and he is soon on the case. Pretty decent colour version of Doyle's intricate debut novel, for those not familiar with the tale, it will provide plenty of glorious head scratching Holmes deductions, Good twist in the tale too, that has Holmes having second thoughts on what guilt really is. Cushing and Stock are both really good.
