Episode Summary

EDIT
The Blue Carbuncle
AIRED:

A plumber, John Horner, is arrested just before Christmas and charged with stealing a famous jewel, the Blue Carbuncle, from Lady Morcar. He denies the theft - but he has a criminal record, and all the evidence is against him.

After Holmes's doorman finds the Carbuncle in a Christmas goose, Holmes uses an old hat to track the goose to a poultry dealer, then traps the servant who stole the jewel and framed the plumber.

The Blue Carbuncle has a dark history, and the stone features in the programme's opening credits with turbulent scenes from its past.

  • A Sherlock Holmes Christmas Time Mystery....

    9.0
    ...."The Blue Carbuncle" is an exceptionally fun Sherlock Holmes tale; a very humorous mystery wrapped up inside a cheery Christmas spirit as a peculiar though seemingly ultimately mundane incident becomes related to the robbery of a rather rare jewel. "The Blue Carbuncle" continues to grow more and more interesting as the story unfolds, revealing Sherlock Holmes' unique brand of justice; this episode's narrative is perhaps even better structured out than Arthur Conan Doyle's original short story! The B-story involving the Horners is not as endearing as the filmmakers undoubtedly wished - but: well-shot and well-acted (Jeremy Brett especially atop his comedic game), "The Blue Carbuncle" is yet another well done and highly entertaining piece of the Granada Sherlock Holmes series.moreless
