Reviews

Two more cases for the Baker Street sleuth. In 'The Problem of Thor Bridge', Holmes (Jeremy Brett) initially suspects foul play when he is asked to look into the mysterious death of Mrs J. Neil Gibson. However, the discovery of some clues on Thor Bridge forces him to revise his hasty opinion. 'The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax' sees Holmes' skills put to the test when he investigates the disappearance, while travelling across Europe, of the beautiful Lady Frances.

It's always difficult when describing a series that was consistently good to come up with new superlatives, but the Granada t.v adaptations of Conan Doyle's stories were absolutely masterly. "The Problem At Thor Bridge" concerns a wealthy American businessman, living in England, who has fallen out of love with his fiery Brazilian wife. Instead he finds his attentions wandering towards his children's governess, a sharp and intelligent young woman who turns him round from becoming an unfeeling monster, to someone with a bit more compassion and understanding. His jealous wife suspects what is happening and summons the governess to meet her one evening on the bridge leading to the house. The next thing you know the wife is lying dead on the bridge, with a shotgun wound to her head. The governess is wrongly charged with murder, and Holmes is hired to try and save her from the gallows. This is a beautifully-filmed piece. It may not be the most complex Holmesian plot, but it's still very engrossing, and enjoyable for having Holmes, the lifelong celibate, cutting through the sometimes murky waters of human relationships to get at the truth.
"The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax" has Dr Watson taking a well-earned break in the Lake District, leaving Holmes bored and lonely back in Baker Street. Staying at the same hotel as Watson is the lively suffragette Lady Frances Carfax (Cheryl Campbell), who stirs up her fellow guests with her exuberant ways. Watson accidentally overhears her having a row with her brother about money ... and then she disappears. Holmes is summoned to the case. This story is one of the most absorbing of the entire series, and has some gorgeous location shooting. It's also quite macabre at times, with one scene set in a graveyard (I can't say more than that without giving too much away) that could have come from Edgar Allen Poe!

The feel of these two stories is noticeably different from those of recent Granada releases from later on in the series. However the good qualities inherent in these productions continue with almost cinematic camarawork, beautifully researched locations and an inherence to the plots and dialogues of the original stories. A first rate portrayal of Holmes by Jeremy Brett and a well deserved share in the limelight for Dr. Watson played superbly by Edward Hardwicke, not to mention the series ability to pull in top class supporting actors, means it more than earns its five star rating.

Two episodes from the now classic Sherlock Holmes series starring the late Jeremy Brett. Well-scripted, atmopheric, brilliantly acted and, though some liberties have been taken with the original plots, they are generally worthwile. A delight.

What can say, I love the sherlock holmes series. Jeremy bret does a brilliant job at portraying the character, and I love Edward Hardwicke as Watson.
