The best the series is ever going to look...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Return of Sherlock Holmes [Blu-ray] [UK Region Spanish Import] (Blu-ray)
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.

Hello. Thanks for your informative review regarding the upgrade of what I believe to be the finest portrayal of the great detective Sherlock Holmes by the one and only Jeremy Brett from DVD to Blu ray. I own the complete DVD set and I want to purchase the Blu ray release but I have been sceptical as some of the older films do not always fare well when transferred to Blu ray. However the improvements you mention have put my mind at rest. Some older formats are cropped at the sides in an effort I presume to reduce picture size and so increasing pixel ratio thus enhancing picture quality in an effort to bring it up to Blu ray quality, however you then have the obligatory black bars at the sides of which I am not a fan of. Could you tell me if such a fate has fallen on this Blu ray transfer. Thank you Jim.

Sorry for the late reply, I can confirm this blu ray maintains the aspect ratio of the original broadcast.
