An old widow, Mrs Maberley (Mary Ellis), receives a suspicious offer of a large sum of money to move out of her depressing mansion and leave absolutely everything behind. Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) looks into this strange proposition and comes face to face with an enforcer and powerful pugilist (Steve Toussaint), who Holmes cuts down to size with verbal agility. Less lucky is Dr Watson (Edward Hardwicke), who goes a round with the oversized fellow after he catches him terrorising poor Mrs Maberley. This adaptation may, in all honesty, be an improvement on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original story. As usual, Brett and Hardwicke are an exceptional team as Holmes and Watson. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Two more cases for the illustrious Baker Street sleuth. In 'The Three Gables', Holmes (Jeremy Brett) suspects foul play when an old lady - whose grandson has only recently passed away - calls him in regarding the proposed purchase of her home and possessions. 'The Dying Detective' sees Holmes hatching an elaborate plot to trap the cunning Culverton Smith, whom he believes has poisoned a prominent banker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jeremy Brett plays Sherlock Holmes excellently 6 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Being a lover of Sherlock Holmes stories I felt that this video brought to life the wonderful magic of these excellent stories. Jeremy Brett (Sherlock Holmes) is a wonderful actor and plays his part very well. Although the video is not exactly the same as the stories it still portrays the wonders of the mysteries. The stories in this video are probably Conan Doyles best.
