As time went on with Granada's productions of Sherlock Holmes, two things happened. First of all was that as the original creative team left for pastures new, the scripts were subject to more and more padding out, sometimes out of neccessity (The Dying Detective being a prime example), sometimes to create a different feel, with mixed success. The Casebook is mainly loyal to the canon in it's dramatisations, but The Memoirs does feature an awful lot of window dressing (The Three Gables being a case in point).

The second was Jeremy Brett. The further you get into these collections you can see just how unwell he was becoming. Indeed he died not long after the completion of the series, and was so unwell during the filming, Charles Gray as Holmes's brother Mycroft was forced to take on the sleuthing in The Mazarin Stone. The performance is no less fine, however, and we do see an aging detective struggling to deal with his darker demons, yet posessing no less of the faculties which make him the finest sleuth of all time, and no less of the qualities in Brett which made his performance definitive.

Still wonderfully produced and acted all round, but less faithfull to the original stories.

I can hardly remember anything that was so beautfully, excitingly, packaged, so that getting into it itself was a real experience - and the content MUCH more than lives up to its promise! The perfect balance between historical authenticity and entertainment, when you've seen one episode, you simply have to play the next, and the next, and the next ... If it's true that this is just about the only thing that the BBC has ever thought was worth buying in from someone else, then you've said it all ... [this applies to all four series - the Adventures, The Case Book, The Memoirs, The Return]

You've got to love Jeremy Brett but the last two series of Sherlock Holmes (The casebook and the memoirs) were nowhere near as good as the first two (the adventures and the return). He is visibly very unwell in the last series and is not really up for the job. I'm still glad I bought it though.

I love Sherlock Holmes and enjoyed this but it's not as good as the first series. Worth it though for the money.
