7 of 14 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars 16:9, 15 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Murder Rooms - The Mysteries of the Real Sherlock Holmes - The Patient's Eyes, The Photographer's Chair, The Kingdom of Bones & The White Knight Stratagem - Starring Ian Richardson + In the Footsteps of Sherlock Holmes - Patrick Macnee [DVD] (DVD)
Following on from the 1 star review I decided to look into this as I too wanted this series in the 16:9 format. I actually spoke to the company who are releasing this set and they explained that each drama will be in the 16:9 format for this release. So good news!!!

I've also checked with IMC and confirmed that the shows are 16:9 widescreen. The 4:3 information shown when you zoom on the product packaging is incorrect.

It may be in the correct aspect ratio but the packaging suggests that it's only the 4 x 90min stories from the 2001 series, though. What about the original 2 x 60min story that preceeded it in 2000 (with Charles Dance)?

The DVD rights in the two-parter were licensed to a different distributor (Mosaic, I believe).

Despite those earlier assurances it turns out on viewing that these discs are not true widescreen, but those old 4:3 images newly stretched to fit a widescreen TV.

I wouldn't have believed that a distributor would do this if I hadn't seen it for myself. I've returned my set to Amazon.
