Sherlock Holmes is the greatest of all fictional detectives, as famous for his deerstalker and pipe, as his legendary powers or observation and deduction. He is an aloof and private man driven by a tierce 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 Illustrious Client When the unscrupulous Baron Gruner (Anthony Valentine) sweeps Violet Merville (Abigail Cruttenden) off her feet, a family friend becomes increasingly concerned for her welfare. Convinced that the Barons marriage plans are sinister he hires Holmes to investigate. The case leads Holmes into grave danger, and a stunned Watson learns that the detective has been the victim of a murderous attack and is unlikely to live through the week!
The Creeping Man Professor Presbury's (Charles Kay)'s daughter Edith (Sarah Woodward) wakes one night to find a strange figure at her window. Her father dismisses it as a bad dream, however, her fiance takes her story more seriously and calls upon Holmes to investigate. The great detective spots a link between her experience and the disappearance of a great ape from London Zoo.
