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); thus nominally omitting the 1917 collection "His Last Bow," which is, however - but for its title story - completely represented in individual episodes spread out over the other four cycles.Read more ›
The discs come in an attractive and reasonably compact box and there is a full episode listing on the back of the two cases. The picture looks pretty sharp from what I have seen so far and the sound is in mono or stereo. There are no extras to speak of which is a pity but there are English subtitles for the hard of hearing. It is hard to find any fault with this latest release and it is well worth five stars.
I suppose that many of you will have thier own favourite episodes but in general the quality of the stories is very good and this is television drama at a high level. It is sad to see the obvious struggles with his health that Jeremy Brett had while watching 'The Memoirs Of Sherlock Holmes' but he was always extremely watchable and even unpredictable. He got the role of a lifetime and did a superb job and you can't ask for any more than that. Although I also own an earlier release of the complete collection, this is the best one yet as the picture seems better and it is highly recommended.
The two "Adventures" series include some of Doyle's most intriguing stories, like "The Naval Treaty" and "The Resident Patient".Read more ›
The re-runs of Rathbone's Holmes were shown and I was hooked, however, it was when I caught Brett's portrayal that I realised Granada had produced something truly special.
I have the original box set which doesn't differ from this version, it is a shame that no attempt to remaster the films has been attempted as some of the film is grainy, though the sound is perfectly acceptable.
Brett's portrayal is just superb, and I cannot see any actor past (or present) ever bettering it, though it was ultimately at a cost to his mental health with the way he totally immersed himself into the character. The TV series in the main remained very true to Doyle's stories, with very authentic settings capturing the Victorian period exceptionally well - it is in this respect that Granada were rightly commended
Two actors faithfully portrayed Watson (David Burke and Edward Hardwicke), and both are a million miles removed from the idiotic portrayal of Watson by Nigel Bruce in the Rathbone films.
If you have enjoyed the novels then I cannot recommend this box set highly enough.
A pity that no detailed booklet comes with the set, however, if you can obtain it, then a glossily produced softback book entitled 'A Centenary Celebration of Sherlock Holmes 1887-1987' was produced by Granada under ISBN:0-9513000-0-8. This compliments the set perfectly, as it provides an insight into the making of the series, however, it appears this is out of print as the ISBN number is not recognised, so Ebay might be the way forward.
