5.0 out of 5 stars If your a fan of Sherlock Holmes you must get this., 16 Mar 2007
This review is from: Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a set of the four feature length adventures which followed the original one off Murder Rooms, following Dr Arthur Conan Doyle and his mentor Dr Joseph Bell who he used as the basis for Sherlock Holmes.

There are four adventures in total over the two discs, The Patients Eyes where a young woman is pursued and haunted by a cloaked figure, The Photographers Chair where victims of a Serial killer are found to have distinct markings, The Kingdom of Bones where an Eyptian Mummy is unwrapped to reveal a modern day man and The White Knight Strategem where two men with knowledge of a suicide are murdered.

There is a dark edge to these films hence The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes as the duo of Doyle and Bell use deductive reasoning to solve the mysteries. The two lead actors are wonderful, Charles Edwards plays Doyle a young Doctor, kind, honourable but emotional, unlike his mentor Bell played by the excellent Ian Richardson who keeps his emotional detachment and sticks to the facts, leaving no stone unturned or any loose thread.

If you are a fan of the Jeremy Brett, Sherlock Holmes series you must get this, as it is just as good. The four adventures are also available on individual discs but you don't need to get these as this is the same price as just one of them so its a real bargain and is ALL region and in widscreen.
