I bought my copy sight-unseen on the basis of being a Sherlock Holmes fan and a Christopher Lee fan. This could have been a risk. But I needn't have worried. This is an excellent Sherlock Holmes telemovie, which any true Holmes fan will love. Christopher Lee is superb as a retirement-aged Holmes, lured back from the brink of retiring to Sussex to raise bees, to solve this fascinating case. Patrick MacNee is virtually the definitive Watson, Claude Akins and all the supporting cast are superb. Although at three hours this film could have been over-long, by splitting it into two parts they've given you the choice of watching over two nights, or in one sitting. So far, having watching it three times, I have always watched it in one sitting. A great addition to the DVD collection of any fan of Sherlock Holmes or Christopher Lee, or both!
