Sherlock Holmes is the greatest of all fictional detectives, as famous for his deerstalker and pipe, as his legendary powers of observation and deduction. He is an aloof and private man driven by a fierce intellect that gives him astounding brilliance and unfathomable eccentricity in equal measure. Jeremy Brett, the definitive Holmes, stars in two beautiful adaptations taken from the classic ITV series.
The Blue Carbuncle (1984) A priceless jewel with a sinister history has been stolen from its owner, the Countess of Morcar (Rosalind Knight). When it is found in a goose's crop, the events surrounding how it got there, and who the true thief is, are puzzles only a genius such as Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) can unravel.
The Resident Patient (1985) Struggling young doctor Percy Trvelyan (Nicholas Clay) gratefully accepts an offer from generous benefactor, Mr. Blessington (Patrick Newell), in return for granting him constant medical supervision. However, after a successful two year partnership Mr. Blessington suddenly shows alarming signs of fear for his own safety.
