Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes

Show Summary

Welcome to the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes guide at TV.com. The BBC commissioned a new series of adaptations in 1968. One of first British television shows to be broadcast in colour, it starred Peter Cushing, who had played Holmes in Hound of the Baskervilles (1959), as the celebrated detective, with Nigel Stock, who had played his friend and associate Dr Watson in Sherlock Holmes (1965), reprised the role. Unfortunately, only six of the these episodes survive. They were released on DVD in 2004.

  • Peter Cushing and Nigel Stock play their parts of Holmes and Watson in a very convincing way.

    Peter Cushing and Nigel Stock play their parts of Holmes and Watson in a very convincing way, although Cushing reportedly didn't like the little rehearsal time available.

    Some 1960's stagey BBC acting from time to time and no money available for certain shots so a few ho hum short cuts to be sure, but still resulting a fine and satisfying TV programme!



    For a great many Sherlock Holmes fans, nothing can now rival the magnificent Jeremy Brett versions from the 1980s and 1990s, with their marvelous atmosphere, careful story adaptations, and Brett's penetrating portrayal of Holmes. But until those were made, Peter Cushing's portrayal of the detective was the best.moreless
