The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes

Show Summary

Welcome to The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes at This British show dramatized twenty-six stories by writers of more or less the same era as Sherlock Holmes. They were all popular in their day, but are less well known today. Each episode stands alone and has its own cast, all from the top drawer of British acting talent. The show is in colour but is not available on DVD - while a very high quality production in its day, definitely of the standard required by the later US compendium Mystery, The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes is almost forgotten now.
