  • A delightfully twisted Holmes mystery....

    8.5
    .... "The Man with the Twisted Lip" is about as straight-up an Arthur Conan Doyle adaptation as any screen program could deliver - and, of course, that means the audience is in for some highly entertaining stuff. In this episode, Holmes and Watson try to discover the connection between a missing man and a well-known beggar.



    Brett and Hardwicke have excellent chemistry as Holmes and Watson, naturally; and Denis Lill is very enjoyable in his first showing as Inspector Bradstreet. Director Patrick Lau and writer Alan Plater do an excellent job transferring Doyle's tale to the screen, translating the mystery and humor in all the right ways - but I especially enjoyed Lau's style, incorporating a number of memorable shots. "The Man with the Twisted Lip" is a solid Holmes adaptation and a sure hit for the viewer.moreless
