5.0 out of 5 stars Aren't we missing the point! 17 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Having just read the reviews and in particular the one about buying these from Canada and the quality being poor. Then waiting for them on DVD....please remember that these customer reviews should be about the release of them on blu ray. That Jeremy Brett played arguably the best Sherlock Holmes isn't the point. That they are here in blu ray is!
The quality is superb....I have in the past had all the stories on VHS and three different releases on DVD....to watch them on blu ray is stunning.....just remember to set the language to 'Ingle' on the right of the menu screen

5.0 out of 5 stars The best the series is ever going to look... 11 Jan 2014
By Barry
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This series will always be restricted by the 16mm film in which is was shot on so you have to be realistic about your expectations with regards to this latest HD blu ray release. However I'm happy to report this set is a definite upgrade from the latest DVD release as they appear to have solved all the issues which plagued the DVD box set, which included colour timing issues, digital noise and poor sound quality.

All in all this is the best the definitive Sherlock Holmes series will ever look on screen unless a 4k scan is made of the original negative which I doubt will ever happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elementary my dear Holmes 22 May 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Everybody knows him -- the pipe-smoking detective on Baker Street (with or without the movie-added deerstalker), who is able to deduce all sorts of things just by glancing at a person.

And while a lot of recent adaptations have completely bastardized Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant detective, "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" shows off Sherlock Holmes at his best. Not only is the writing and direction amazing, but Jeremy Brett and David Burke are simply brilliant in the main roles.

Holmes (Brett) is visited by the masked King of Bohemia, who has a slight problem: he's engaged to a princess, but his former lover Irene Adler has a compromising letter that could jeopardize his future marriage. But Adler has a formidable brain of her own. Then Holmes is hired by a man whose wife is receiving strange coded messages, filled with dancing men.

Among the other strange cases that Holmes and Watson undertake -- a stolen treaty, a music teacher being stalked by a cyclist, a locked-room murder, a dead woman whose last words were "it was the band, the speckled band!", a blue jewel hidden in a Christmas turkey, a young woman given a surreally weird job, a man kidnapped to serve as a Greek interpreter, a man who inexplicably left all his money to someone he didn't know, a paranoid doctor and disappearing patients, the "red headed league," and a clash with Professor Moriarty over the Mona Lisa.

Sherlock Holmes mysteries come in two types:
1. The case is completely baffling, and Holmes is needed to unravel the knot of obscure clues.
2. The case seems straightforward, but Holmes is needed to connect seemingly unrelated clues to the crime in order to find the REAL perpetrator.

Format:DVD
In his foreword to Bantam's "Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories," Loren Estleman called the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson literature's warmest, most symbiotic and most timeless: rightfully so. Not surprisingly, film history is littered with adaptations of Conan Doyle's tales and Holmes pastiches (using the protagonists but otherwise independent storylines). Yet - and with particular apologies to the fans of the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce canon - none of these prior incarnations can hold a candle to the ITV/Granada TV series produced between 1984 and 1994, starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes and first David Burke, then in near-seamless transition Edward Hardwicke as a refreshingly sturdy, pragmatic, unbumbling Dr. Watson.

Jeremy Brett was the only actor who ever managed to perfectly portray Holmes's imperiousness, bitingly ironic sense of humor and apparently indestructible self-control without at the same time neglecting his genuine friendship towards Dr. Watson and the weaknesses hidden below a surface dominated by his overarching intellectual powers. The series takes the titles of its four cycles of shorter episodes - "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," "The Return of Sherlock Holmes," "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes" - from four of the five short story collections featuring London's self-appointed only "consulting detective" (published 1892, 1905, 1894 and 1927, respectively). While not all episodes correspond exactly with the original story collections, and the series's premise - Holmes's and Watson's shared tenancy of rooms at 221B Baker Street - was no longer true even at the beginning of the "Adventures," particularly the first two cycles ("Adventures" and "Return") are must-haves for any mystery fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars Such a disappointment 11 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
I bought this set from Canada before the series was released on DVD in the UK, and I wish I hadn't bothered. Don't get me wrong, I love this series and had every episode on VHS, I just wanted an upgrade and I didn't get it. The episodes are brilliant, but I already knew that, but the transfer to DVD is shocking. The sound is muffled and the volume variable, and the picture quality is dreadful. It looks like they were transferred from someones home recording - just awful. I later bought some of the R2 UK versions which were much better with crisp pictures and clear sound. There are a number of versions available on DVD - DON'T BUY THIS ONE.
