Format: VHS Tape
Two excellent adaptations from the 'Casebook of Sherlock Holmes'.
If you are like me and have not read either of these original Doyle stories for sometime you will not be disappointed in fact after watching both episodes I ran for my hardback copy and was very pleased to see much of Doyles dialogue left in.
If you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes you'll probably have these already!
If you enjoy crime drama's especially with a historical slant you can't do much worse than take a look at some of the video's in this series.
In Shoscombe we have a deeply in debt gambler who is under suspicison of murder when a creditor disappears and human remains appear in his furnance.
Boscombe Valley a son is accused of murdering his father.
As always things are not quite what they seem.

These two episodes are taken from "The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes", which were the last episodes produced by Michael Cox. John Hawksworth here also makes his last contribution to the series with the script for "The Boscombe Valley Mystery." Both these contributors were, in my opinion, sorely missed in the later Sherlock Holmes series. Both are quite straightforward adaptations of the Conan Doyle stories, especially "The Boscombe Valley Mystery." Experience has shown that the best successes were usually obtained by not straying too far from Doyle, although "Shoscombe Old Place" does add a few details for dramatic reasons, not necessarily successfully. Jeremy Brett is wonderful as always as Holmes, although his ill health is beginning to show, and Edward Hardwicke is once more reliable as Watson. Jude Law also has an interesting role in "Shoscombe Old Place" in what must have been a very early television appearance. Fans of the old "Poldark" series also have a treat in store with the appearance of Robin Ellis. Isn't it wonderful that these series are finally being reissued - but where is a DVD for the European market?

The listing says Eille Norwood (a silent actor) for a Jeremy Brett televison offering. I believed your false advertising and bought a couple of years ago. I see you still misrepresent.

Two episodes from the highly acclaimed Granada series starring the late Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes. Stylishly directed and fairly faithful to Conan Doyle's originals this is a must-see for Holmes fans. (Incidentally, modern sex symbol Jude Law has a minor role in Shoscombe Old Place.)

The product you are trying to sell is not starring Eille Norwood as listed but is a more modern collection of Television shows. I made a mistake and bought one.
