Regarded by many to be the best incarnation of the Baker Street sleuth, Douglas Wilmer gives a career-defining performance in this celebrated BBC series. The first story, 'The Speckled Band', was originally produced as part of the BBC drama strand 'Detective', but an entire series based on the works of Arthur Conan Doyle soon followed. Holmes' loyal companion, Dr. John Watson, is brilliantly played by the great Nigel Stock, while guest stars include the likes of Peter Wyngarde (Department S, The Innocents) and PatrickTroughton (Doctor Who).
